The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…

The Show: I’ll only feel worse, till I’m riding in a hearse, and I’m gone…

Thank you Matt Kennedy of fellow 8K.NZ show UNDERGROUND AUSTRALIANA for pointing us in the direction of Adelaide’s PEAK TWINS. Sure, “So Long” came out in 2013, but we’re slow on the uptake of most things, those good things take time, and a ballad with a dreamy David Lynch Roadhouse crooning vibe is pretty timeless anyway.

And on with the show…

The Show: The Joy Of Six *

To take advantage of our newly minted level 2 COVID-19 status we’ve headed away for the long weekend. There was just enough time to put together a six-song, two-hour mix before we departed for the olive groves of Blenheim.

Think of this as a counterpoint to the 40 song ADHD mix we posted back in March 2011
