Pale, Stale Males & Sing Speech

James, Eno, CFTPA, heck, even Charlie Brown – the pale, stale male death rattle is heard throughout today’s show (Gaz Coombes didn’t make the cut… this week).

Then there’s the sing speech / speak singing – Laurie Anderson, Tami T, Special Request, Flux and (at a very dubby push) Miss Red.

All interspersed with our favourite moments from a tournament we never wanted to watch but discovered we didn’t have the moral fibre to ignore – FIFA World Cup Russia 2018. Never mind. We promise there’s no way we’ll be watching the calendar fucking, slave labour exploitingtradition trashing, new high bar of corruption FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Honest.

The Show: I got some things I cannot add up in my mind…

If the show today was a degustation menu it would go a little something like this… baroque pop, power pop, gentle pop, a musical sorbet, a noodle without, distressed beats, 80s synth house, and a final refreshing sorbet.

And Fraserhead is still addicted to the twangy-jaunty-indie-country-power-pop of the new SCHOFIELD SPIRES album belafonte. Thank you Blair Parkes for the tip off.

“math teacher” is a favourite. Can’t believe they didn’t win RDU’s RoundUp on the strength of this number alone! Scandal!!!

The Show: And you won’t get hurt if you just keep your hands up, And stand tall like sycamores

Out at Bottle Lake amongst the Pinus radiata, the Cordyline Australis, the Dodonaea viscosa, and the Malva, but not the Platanus occidentalis.

Whereby Fraserhead ponders the meaning of the universe after spending the last few weeks working in a pine plantation and listening continuously to the reckonings of Bill Callahan and drones of Dylan Carlson on high rotate. Healthy? Sure. What could possibly go wrong in the clear, brisk, cool country air?
