The Show: The Lebensraum of popular music

If you enjoyed the opening to today’s show – and who wouldn’t like Whitney Houston’s music being described as tyrannical and capable of crushing every tune in your record collection – the full exchange between Edward George and John Doran is available as a podcast via The Quietus. It is for subscribers only but this one interview is well worth the price of admission.

Meanwhile, battle lines have been drawn within the greater Joint family over the best version of Harry Styles’ “As It Was” – the original, the Arcade Fire cover or Harry performing the tune live at Coachella. Listen to all 3 in the epilogue or watch them below.

And on with the show…

The Show: Over 40 Years Of Sleng Teng

And it only seems like yesterday we were busting out our Casiotone’s and aping Wayne Smith’s 1985 classic. The hard work had pretty much been done 3 or 4 years earlier when one of Okuda Hiroko’s preset rhythm patterns ( called “Rock”, would you believe?) was included on the MT-40 keyboard.

For an oral history of Sleng Teng have a listen to The Blessed Madonna on BBC Radio 6 and we salute the rhythm by including Shinehead’s “Know How Fe Chat” on today’s show…
