The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.

The Show: Electric black shadow runs ‘cross the sun…

New release from THE BIG FRESH COLLECTIVE out right now. JET SET GHETTO TECH sees Liam K. Swiggs and DJ Simon Dallow pay tribute to the video game soundtracks of Hideki Naganuma.

And how the heck did Captain Beefheart make it into the show today? I’ve always been a bit scared of his reputation but at a recent talk at the Christchurch Art Gallery legendary photographer Laurence Aberhart mentioned that painter Bill Hammond may have had his wheels spun by Captain Beefheart’s “Run Paint Run Run” which could possibly explain Bill Hammond’s predilection for paint running. And after summoning the courage to listen to said catchy ditty I was hooked.

Here endeth today’s fine art lesson.

The Show: “Must We Fling This Filth At Our Pop Kids” 2

We first asked this question back in April 2017 and the answer remains the same. Yes.

So have a listen to back-to-back bawdy lyrics from Cupcakke and Dry Cleaning. We wanted to follow those two artists with a new tune from Katie Vick but The Joint is unable to (play songs containing the word) cum three times in a row.
