The Show: Nobody gets what they want anymore…

Well, that’s a catchy way of sampling and looping Marlon Williams and Aldous Harding. The Leonard Simpson Duo (Guilty Simpson x Leonard Charles) album LSD is out 31 Jan 2020. Tip of the hat to The Vinyl Factory.

The Show: Bulbous also tapered? That’s right!

For some bizarre reason I recently got an earworm of Captain Beefheart and The Mascara Snake talking about bulbous things at the start of Trout Mask Replica’s “Pena”, hence today’s show title. Delightful fan video below if you want the whole experience.

Not to be outdone on the freakiness front UNCLE QUENTIN aka Tim “Von Klap” Moore has just released the album Famous For God. One for fans of bent and swinging James Bond soundtracks, The Avalanches, beats and synths. Sneak peek below…

The Show: The dishes are piling up, but that’s cool cos at least we’ve got food…

All over the shop today haphazardly and unmethodically covering the pop, psychedelic, chiptuned pop-punk, futuristic-retro pop, old prog, new prog, lo-fi bedroom pop, mardi gras indian, experimental dancehall, footwork/footmahi, ambient electronic and cyberpunk musical sub-genres, to name but a few.

We’re not ones to pick favourites but first cab off the rank today is GOLD MEDAL FAMOUS with possibly the catchiest, happiest, most uplifting and nihilistic song ever written about fading into obscurity (and other things). Have a listen to “It’s a waste of time” below and see if you disagree…

And with that done you can listen to the whole show below…
