The Show: Bar-b-que courtesy J.R.R. Tolkien Jr, George R.R. Martin

Catching up on 2019. Jeremy Deller‘s ‘Everybody in the Place, An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992’ somehow intertwining miners’ strikes, civil disobedience, and warehouse raves. Mind blown.

Also glad to see the return of Rory Ferreira aka R.A.P. Ferreira aka Milo aka Scallops Hotel. We thought he had quit the business but in reviewing 2019 discovered his newish R.A.P. Ferreira persona. Who else could rap about J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R. Martin running a barbecue??? No one. But that was possibly a rhetorical question.

And on with the show…

The Show: The dishes are piling up, but that’s cool cos at least we’ve got food…

All over the shop today haphazardly and unmethodically covering the pop, psychedelic, chiptuned pop-punk, futuristic-retro pop, old prog, new prog, lo-fi bedroom pop, mardi gras indian, experimental dancehall, footwork/footmahi, ambient electronic and cyberpunk musical sub-genres, to name but a few.

We’re not ones to pick favourites but first cab off the rank today is GOLD MEDAL FAMOUS with possibly the catchiest, happiest, most uplifting and nihilistic song ever written about fading into obscurity (and other things). Have a listen to “It’s a waste of time” below and see if you disagree…

And with that done you can listen to the whole show below…
