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?

The Show: Чемпионат мира по футболу 2018 года Россия

All the audio clips in the mix lifted from “Frankie Goes To Russia”.

Direct download: The Joint – 16 June 2018

Footnotes for today’s show:

* Found ourselves humming the riff of the new 1975 song over & over, wondering why it sounded so very familiar. Once we stopped humming we realised that they may have been “inspired” by Joy Division’s “Disorder” and then compressed that riff through the Pro Tools Bumblebee In A Lift Shaft Audio Filter©.

** Finally have a reason to sneak in a tune from the (very much) underground “Love Is A Drag” album from the early 1960’s. A jazz standard sung by a man for a man seems the perfect counterpoint to the startling “there is no homosexuality in Russia, just men who are addicted to sex” comment that precedes it.
