The Show: Don’t ever call me your drummer again. You’re my singer!

No Charlie Watts tribute sorry, but we thoroughly recommend popping over to YouTube and watching the isolated drums video for “Gimme Shelter”. Instead, lots of new cuts from our favourite Ōtautahi cats and many more.

The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…

The Show: I’ll only feel worse, till I’m riding in a hearse, and I’m gone…

Thank you Matt Kennedy of fellow 8K.NZ show UNDERGROUND AUSTRALIANA for pointing us in the direction of Adelaide’s PEAK TWINS. Sure, “So Long” came out in 2013, but we’re slow on the uptake of most things, those good things take time, and a ballad with a dreamy David Lynch Roadhouse crooning vibe is pretty timeless anyway.

The Show: The mystery of Scottish sport is why we hate the English so…

Euro 2020 2021 is currently underway and preparation for today’s show coincided with the build up to the England versus Scotland match.

So much to play for! A win for Scotland would surely guarantee secession or independence. And a win for England would surely vindicate Brexiteers everywhere. Or maybe we were being unrealistic. And then we woke up Saturday morning and saw the match end in a 0-0 draw.

However, we will never pass up an excuse to rummage around in the archives and play Primal Scream, Irvine Welsh & On-U Sound’s The Big Man And The Scream Team Meet The Barmy Army Uptown.

And on with the show…
