The Show: Once upon a time, we danced, Once upon a time, we took a chance…

The Show: Get Smartr

Now that the Stormzy – Wiley feud seems to have ground to a halt we offer you a review of all the sends (5 in total) in today’s mix. Head across to niche website Grime Beef for more details. We ran out of time to include the black midi and Afghan Dan additions to the canon.

The spoken word clips are from the Luminary podcast Smartr. First two episodes are free to download / stream but the remaining eight require a subscription. This makes things slightly awkward because Luminary is not available in New Zealand.

Closing track is the 15 minute “Word Wall 2”, featuring Elena Poulou and taken off the first vinyl release from Salford club The White Hotel. The club might not look promising from the outside but inside, well, just check out their gig guide for starters.

And on with the show…

The Show: Gimme more Star Wars, gimme open barre chords…

Driving around town yesterday listening to RNZ resulted in multiple earworms and tangled musical threads that needed dealing with. That’s the official explanation for FUN BOY THREE, BANANARAMA, ROXY MUSIC, LL COOL J and a few other cuts from the 60s, 70s and 80s making it on to the show today.

Every track on the show is a highlight, so it feels mean to play favourites, but a tip of the hat to Bill of Human Pleasure Radio for putting us on to Kiwi Jr. In a parallel universe The Cars would have signed to Flying Nun and their offspring would eventually become the house band for a shady sake bar in Toronto. You don’t even have to imagine it, here’s the video…

The Show: Isn’t It Funny How Life Just Carries On?

It’s an annual tradition going all the way back to 2017. Frankie Boyle’s New World Order is broadcast over the Christmas holidays. The Joint then pillages the programme for samples to insert in our first mix of the following year.

WARNING: These samples are devoid of context, particularly that Northern Irish abortion line. For the full context watch the entire show on YouTube while you can.
