The Show: I won’t get on my knees. Don’t make me do that please…

While researching and putting together the show this week (which involves throwing darts at music maps and scouring Bandcamp for Christchurch and Brisbane music) I stumbled across Hatchie & The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s glorious cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Sometimes Always”.

Proof indeed that the Reid brothers have an uncanny knack for writing perfect pop songs lovingly drenched in honeyed guitar tones. Sadly the pink vinyl 7-inch single has sold out but you can still have a listen below.

I seem also to have stumbled into the trap of playing TV theme tunes, but sometimes you just have to scratch that itch.

And on with the show…

The Show: I sold my life rights for a big check and I’m upset…

Fraserhead at the controls today, starting off with some poetry from the one and only Lana Del Rey. To be fair, if Lana Del Rey read the phone book we would play that too. Actually, does anyone still produce phone books these days? And if poetry isn’t your thing then we’ve got new cuts from CHC cats ZANE 2000, Modern Chair, Internet Death, 2XM & Jess Aspinwall, and there’s synths, beats, and a few soundscapes to round it all off..

And on with the show…

The Show: The One with Kajagoogoo

One Gen X’er’s piece of throwaway 80’s pop crap is another Gen Z’er’s twenty-twenties vaporwave classic – or so it would seem.

We were forced to re-evaluate and, yes, appreciate Kajagoogoo’s “Hang On Now” after the song featured in Sofie’s recent Bleep mix.

Sofie herself appears in today’s show along with a brand new track from John Carpenter, which seems a good reason as any to post a video of The Thing remade with the cast of Pingu.

And on with the show…

The Show: Prepare now. Official information and instruction will be given over the wireless…

A little bit of a synth overload on the show today. Vintage, retro, lo-fi, vaporwave and a bit of the coldwave. Plus there’s a sludgy, doomy sneak preview of the new Shit and Shine album to round things off proper.

Speaking of synths, we couldn’t quite fit The Dewaele Brothers aka Soulwax into the show today but if you like rare equipment then their recent project with the legendary EMS Synthi 100 will have you fizzing:

By the way, the show title today is courtesy of Analogue Electronic Whatever‘s newish single “Hole”. Cracking video too!
