Today the Herb Whisperer promises lots of indie.

For you vinyl nutters and Madlib aficionados out there, have a peek at this wonderful interview with Laura Leishman in the Radio France vinyl archive. Love the fact that Madlib bugs out when discovering rare records in the vaults. More from the Radio Vinyle series here.

The Show: RIP Iain Banks (1954 – 2013)

Iain Banks

There are chardonnay socialists. And there are champagne socialists. And there are also vintage champagne socialists. But there are not many single malt socialists.

Iain Banks was one of the latter. His sharp wit, incredible imagination, fierce criticism of Tory ideology, defence of the underdog, unashamed appreciation of Porsche 911s and BMW M5s, and whisky research will be sorely missed.

While I tend to prefer Iain Banks “mainstream” fiction something I love about his science fiction novels, those featuring the utopian civilisation “The Culture”, is the absurd, silly and playful names he gave to the ships’ minds. See a full list on Wikipedia. So as a nerdy tribute to Mr Banks on the show today we got our robot to read out the registry of ships’ names over some nice Boards of Canada backing beats. Hope it didn’t wig you out too much.
