The Show: It seems nowadays cab rides are rather pricely…

On the show today, highlights include a sneaky threesome from the new ITALIANS DO IT BETTER compilation “After Dark 3”, new releases from Ōtautahi Christchurch denizens HORN, VIOLET FRENCH, T.G. SHAND, LOCAL FLORIST., ZANE 2000, DOUJIN DUKE, and WURLD SERIES.

Plus our favourite Brisbane beatsmith ANARCHOSOPHIST recently got in touch to remind us about a few of his new cuts. If you like woozy, lofi, soundtrack hip-hop and you like cats then you’re sure going to dig “The Cat King in the Year of the Plague”…

By the way, today’s show title originated with an earworm of the Bob James classic “Angela” lead to a YouTube treasure hunt starting with Bob James discussing being sampled by the hip-hop community:

And thus led to the (re)discovery of Souls of Mischief “Cab Fare”:

The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

The Show: 1971 was a good year

1971. Fifty whole years ago.

A good year for The Arsenal (winning the coveted Football League First Division and FA Cup double).

A good year for music (with albums from the likes of Can, Carly Simon, Harry Nilsson, Serge Gainsbourg, Captain Beeheart, The Carpenters and many others).

And the year Fraserhead was born.

Saying that, sadly no music from 1971 in the mix today (Harry Nilsson a few weeks back was it), but there’s a token effort with some found footage of The Arsenal’s double winning season (apologies to Spurs and Liverpool fans), and then there’s the usual cryptic blend of beats and noises.

And on with the show…
