A welcome return today from Nick Harte aka Shocking Pinks. His mysterious new MERCEDES CAMBRIDGE project “Adversary” is cinematic, darkly ambient and hypnotically crimecore. It’s the soundtrack for the film that Nicolas Winding Refn was too scared to make. Get it now on Bandcamp and/or get the cassette version via Opal Tapes.
Not to be outdone, after a long hiatus ANIKA aka Annika Henderson is back too. The new album Change is out 23 July 2021. For a wee taste have a listen to Finger Pies…
Fraserhead here. I’m on my own today. It’s been pouring with rain and Sudafed is pumping through my veins. Which makes this brand new Shacklock Meth Party single “Vaccination Day” all the more poignant.
Apologies for the woozy and disorientating sound levels / effects at the start and end of today’s podcast – we were best by a myriad of technical issues. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Ou quelque chose.
The first part of the show was a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the release of New Order’s top party anthem and conga line favourite “Blue Monday“.
