The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

The Show: Sparks Plugs

As The Joint reluctantly adapts to middle-aged life it’s heartening to see two 70ish year old brothers making angry, vibrant, catchy pop music. We reckon these might possibly be some of the best tunes of the Maels’ 50 year career.

And in this week’s edition of Lyrics Bingo match the following couplets to their respective songs:

“Ain’t left the city in months,
I guess Westfield knows what I want”

“I’m a janitor,
Oh my genitals”

“You’re a feminist until I won’t fuck you,
You’re a feminist until I talk to other guys”

The Show: Between the viaducts of your dream

Gemma Syme filling in. Says Gemma:

Isn’t Astral Weeks AMAZING? The whole album is insanely beautiful. I remember reading a Lester Bangs book and he did a huge spiel about the album, so I remember picking it up and listening to the whole thing and being blown away. Madame George is also one of my favs.
