The Show: How Stock, Aitken & Waterman Wrote “Buffalo Stance”

In all the years we’ve been listening to “Buffalo Stance” we never knew it’s genesis was in a 1987 SAW production for Morgan McVey called “Looking Good Diving”.  Things come more into focus with the “Diving With The Wild Bunch” remix on the 12″, featuring Neneh Cherry herself. It’s no great secret, it’s been blogged about numerous times. Possibly, probably, we don’t pay enough attention. However, the story is now impossible to escape in light of the slew of re-releases of “Raw Like Sushi” on it’s 30th anniversary.

The Show: Look at those bezels.

AK DAN GWANG CHIL – Youngjeonggeori

ADG7 might create traditional minyo music from Hwanghae-do in South Korea but it has a slight feel of late 70’s / early 80’s no wave / alternative / post-punk. So, naturally, we love it.

“2 Old For This Shit” Trailer

File this under “things you never knew you wanted” – a punk rock opera based on Lethal Weapon 2, courtesy of Boyle Heights. If you desire a physical copy it’s available on VHS only. The 10 song / 14 minute package acts as a soundtrack to the band recreating their favourite scenes from the 1989 movie.

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.

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.
