The Show: I still get nervous metaphysically…

Artwork by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend BLAIR PARKES

Musically the New Year used to feel like the graveyard shift of the music business –  a time of the year full of remixes and reissues and repackaging. This year, maybe due to the kids just getting on with getting on there seems to be a steady stream of releases coming out of Christchurch – Ōtautahi.

For that reason on the show today listen out for recent releases from Joint favourites Kelvin Hurts (ex CHC now ALK), Liam K. Swiggs, Mad Frank, Dilemma Beats, Jagā, a sneaky threesome from pickle darling, and some synth loveliness from the mysterious Supernova Wolf. Plus we plunder the immaculate selections of Keytars & Violins for some of the best left field techno of 2018. Happy New Year.

And speaking of Christchurch output, the artwork above is by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend Blair Parkes. Listen to his tunes at https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com and have a peek at his artworks at https://blairparkes.wordpress.com

The Show: Behold, Old Scratch in 6-string form…

We do like a good prank call. But if a phone isn’t available, email can be just as good. On Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast BROKEN RECORD, Dave Hill recounts the time he posed as 19 year old ‘Lance’ from Gary, Indiana – founder of the world’s darkest metal band of all time – WITCH TAINT. Through an ongoing email conversation ‘Lance’ engages the legendary Saiitham of the Norwegian Black Metal community in witty passive-aggressive banter. It resulted in ‘Lance’ having to form said Witch Taint. Life imitates art.

The Show: And you won’t get hurt if you just keep your hands up, And stand tall like sycamores

Out at Bottle Lake amongst the Pinus radiata, the Cordyline Australis, the Dodonaea viscosa, and the Malva, but not the Platanus occidentalis.

Whereby Fraserhead ponders the meaning of the universe after spending the last few weeks working in a pine plantation and listening continuously to the reckonings of Bill Callahan and drones of Dylan Carlson on high rotate. Healthy? Sure. What could possibly go wrong in the clear, brisk, cool country air?

The Show: And I done it in Europe like George Graham…

Yip, it’s the novelty hit of the summer, Reece West et al getting grimy on Arsène Wenger. Accidentally redressing the balance because THE HERB WHISPERER very recently revealed he’s been playing trap on the show if Paul Pogba’s been appearing in the related videos. Can’t argue with that logic to be honest.

DISCLAIMER: Playing this track is in no way an endorsement of ArsenalFanTV.
