The Show: Aquarium Drunkard vs Funky 16 Corners

First up, an addendum to The Joint from 12/12/2020.

If you enjoyed the last 10 minutes of that show, lifted from the recent Steve McQueen “Lovers Rock” film, let us point you in the direction of  J.D. Twitch’s SoundCloud page. He had a much more creative vision than we did, placing the a cappella cast version of Janet Kay’s “Silly Games” over a Denis Bovell remix of the same song.

And, now, on with the show – a mix of two festive halves. The first half comes courtesy of Aquarium Drunkard and the second half courtesy of Funky 16 Corners.

The Show: Time to light the lamp and trim the wick

Not the TENNIS track (“Diamond Rings”) we played on the show today but the 1970s Carpenters inspired video for “I Miss That Feeling.” A duo from Denver, Colorado who like to get a Stevie Nicks / Cyndi Lauper / Karen Carpenter vibe going on.
