The Show: Well that’s gentrification you prick

We were going to use more of the #MAGAChallenge entries on today’s show but, quite frankly, we lost the will to live after viewing a half dozen. Better to cut back on the sneering and squeeze in more tunes. Or as a member of Consolidated’s audience put it during a live show “I reckon you should shut the fuck up and play some music”.

And if we had played more music we could have squeezed in the new Pregoblin single.

And on with the show…

The Show: Dogshit Policies

Interstitial (been waiting to use that word for a while) spoken word pieces taken  from AOC’s questioning of Mark Zuckerberg during a recent US congressional hearing, with Zuckerberg’s responses neatly summarized by Nish Kumar during Bugle 4121 – “Dogshit policies”.

The Show: The Shipping Forecast.

The BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. ASMR before ASMR even existed. Short cryptic predictions for little-known geographical locations (South Utsire anyone?), snippets of the Forecast are sprinkled throughout today’s show.

If these excerpts do give you that ASMR “low grade euphoria” help yourself to 5 hour or even 9 hour YouTube compilations.

Personal favourite from this playlist is “The Flood” by Haiku Salut, part of their reimagined soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film “The General”. So feel free to spend the rest of your week trying to sync up the entire score on Spotify with a totally legit free stream of the movie*.

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.
