The Show: Stop thinking… let things happen… and be… the ball.

After the Xmas silliness finally a chance to catch up on the backlog as well as throw our favourite outliers into the mix. Today’s wildcard entry is courtesy of Shit and Shine who miraculously turn a Caddyshack gag into a stonking, percussive, distorted 10-minute breakbeat epic dedicated to the power of golf and centeredness.

If we ever get round to organising a yard party then we’ll be sure to get Shit and Shine to play a set. Here’s what it would look and sound like…

The Show: Christchurch – Ōtautahi 2017… the year in review

Today it’s a review of the year in music from Christchurch – Ōtautahi featuring some of our favourite releases throughout 2017.

We couldn’t quite fit them all in, some may not strictly have been made in “Christchurch”, and there are some tracks that were produced earlier than 2017 but only saw the light of this day this year, but we’re sure you get the gist.

And because we like to get a bit OCD on it – and also to avoid ranking art – the setlist features the artists in chronological order of track release…

The Show: He said a song is just a song

In which Fraserhead starts off with a 1982 Prefab Sprout classic all about being addicted to radio, then zig zags through the realms of wonky electronics, dark house, wobbly techno, twee pop, melancholic pop, some sifty rock’n’roll… oh… and some classic 1970s Japanese whisky advertisements (see below).
