The Show: Are you the goddamn Coronavirus?

This week’s show was put together quickly, incorporating large chunks of Conan O’Brien’s Self-Quarantine podcast (featuring Andy Daly) and huge swathes of the 2020 BBC Radio 6 Music Festival.

However, the time we saved was put to good use. We managed to get in 8 – 10 solid hours of worrying about the future of the world. Job done.

And on with the show…

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.

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.
