The Show: Regifting

Whilst The Joint enjoys what is left of the Holidays we’re digging into the archives to present a Christmas mix from 2010. We have no recollection of making this or the reasons why it was made. We don’t think it was ever broadcast on any terrestrial or web based radio station.

Our (re)gift to you.

The Show: Behold, Old Scratch in 6-string form…

We do like a good prank call. But if a phone isn’t available, email can be just as good. On Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast BROKEN RECORD, Dave Hill recounts the time he posed as 19 year old ‘Lance’ from Gary, Indiana – founder of the world’s darkest metal band of all time – WITCH TAINT. Through an ongoing email conversation ‘Lance’ engages the legendary Saiitham of the Norwegian Black Metal community in witty passive-aggressive banter. It resulted in ‘Lance’ having to form said Witch Taint. Life imitates art.

The Show: Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You…

Tried to avoid any Christmas frivolity this year but the pull towards festive nonsense was too great.

Plus, the repeated-lyric-reworking of Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” put us in mind of an equivalent deconstruction someone performed on The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” a few years ago.

The Show: Too hot to sing, too hot to think…

Doing things back to front today and starting with the (so called) slow burners and then finishing with the (so called) bangers. A bit of catching up from releases that escaped the attention from earlier this year plus a lot of new stuff from the likes of Camilla Sparksss, Mad Frank, Mmdelai, Sabiwa, MISS RED, Kambo Super Sound System, pickle darling, DOG Power, and Sandro Perri. Also, a sneaky plundering of the Whities back catalogue.

The Show: I’m checking out, checking out…

Very excited to announce that Henry Nicol and Sam Perry’s brand new DOG Power album is finally here. Get yer stinking mitts on it over at their Bandcamp or have a listen below. The dark and sifty underbelly of Otautahi Christchurch never sounded so good. So good in fact that when trying to decide what track to play on the show today we took the easy way out and played a handful. Easy.
