The Show: Dead white men’s notes.

Another week and another music documentary to recommend.

“Sisters With Transistors” charts the (relatively) unheralded female pioneers of electronic music. From Clara Rockmore’s mastery and development of the theremin to the earsplitting drones of Maryanne Amacher, it’s the story of women who wanted to do more than “push around dead white men’s notes”.

It only seemed right and proper to include a couple of tunes from the soundtrack in today’s playlist, to wit: Laurie Spiegel and Space Lady.

All interspersed with excerpts from Chris Addison’s recent Bugle appearance.

And on with the show…

The Show: So many holes…

There’s room to stretch out on today’s show which means we can finally play the whole 25+ minutes of “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s odd but compelling but soothing “Out Of The Blue…” track from 1978. Possibly the longest single song The Joint has ever played and likely to stay that way until The Herb Whisperer summons up the courage to dedicate half an hour to one of those John Coltrane live skronks.
