The Show: How Stock, Aitken & Waterman Wrote “Buffalo Stance”

In all the years we’ve been listening to “Buffalo Stance” we never knew it’s genesis was in a 1987 SAW production for Morgan McVey called “Looking Good Diving”.  Things come more into focus with the “Diving With The Wild Bunch” remix on the 12″, featuring Neneh Cherry herself. It’s no great secret, it’s been blogged about numerous times. Possibly, probably, we don’t pay enough attention. However, the story is now impossible to escape in light of the slew of re-releases of “Raw Like Sushi” on it’s 30th anniversary.

And on with the show…

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: Farewell 2015

Last show of the year. We’ll be back some time in January. This will give Fraserhead some time to tidy up and organise his elephant’s graveyard of a studio which contains lots of DJ toys that he can’t figure out how to use properly. See evidence below.

The untidy studio at The Joint HQ.
