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: Outsourced

Sarah Nicol - Resonance FM
Special guest star: Sarah Nicol – Resonance FM

Sometimes you need a helping hand from the heavy hitters. For that reason we flew in Sarah Nicol, manager of legendary London radio station Resonance FM, for a refresher on how to properly do a radio show.

Sarah gave us some good advice on how to stalk music legends (e.g. James Murphy, Jane Weaver, Trevor Jackson) without looking like a stalker, how to get backstage at gigs (e.g. Despacio), and how to pick music (e.g. go to a record shop and overwhelm yourself with the vinyl selection).

Consider ourselves schooled. We will attempt to put this new found and valued advice into action from now on.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 2

We’re taking a break this weekend which means no show on RDU today.

Just in case you were desperate for a hit of The Joint here’s a recording of the live set we played at Black Estate’sDumpling, Wine & Records” night last month.

The audio quality is a little scratchy in places. As the evening wore on the faders were pushed higher and the needle was bouncing in the red. You know how noisy and raucous these vineyard events can get, especially when you break out the Wham vinyl.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 1

black-estate-playlist-20150418The Joint likes to dream of DJ’ing with the greats at crucial moments in pop history. Larry Levan in 70’s NYC. Don Letts‘ punky reggae party at The Roxy. DJ Alfredo at Amnesia on Ibiza in the late eighties.

But at our age when we play out it’s not exactly 20,000 people mashed up in field. More like several dozen punters dining at a vineyard. Less “Sorted For E’s & Whizz“. More “Little Old Wine Drinker Me“. Which is exactly why we were invited to play records at the Black Estate Tasting Room & Eatery last Saturday afternoon.

Many thanks to all for making us feel very welcome and a special mention to Waipara DJ Sylvia for helping out. When we ran out of vinyl after 4 hours she filled in with her Lorde LP. Unfortunately we’d stopped recording the set at this point so it was very much a case of you had to be there. Which means in future years, just like with Levan, Letts and Alfredo, thousands will claim they were.

The Joint. Keeping it real(ly mellow).
