Blackpool Rocks

“A Seaside Ting”

No idea what to make of Blackpool grime but Blackpool grime makes it into the show, courtesy of Afghan Dan. He’s also responsible for the most telling / affecting quote from this Noisey documentary – “That’s not really talent, that’s survival” – at the five and a half minute mark.

If you’re keen to dig deeper into the sends, disses and beefs described above let us refer you to the YouTube channel BGMedia, the one-stop shop for all your Blackpool grime needs.

TISM “Whatareya?”

Currently listening to Michael Daly’s Australian music special on RDU’s Vintage Cuts. Early on he played the Regurgitator classic (from 1997) “I Like Your Old Stuff Better Than Your New Stuff” which for some reason, every time I hear it,  I always mistake it for TISM.

So, in case I forget to play it on the show next week, here’s TISM and their 1998 single “Whatareya?“. Any band who wears masks, was rumoured to be The Wiggles in disguise (!!!), is friends with John Safran, and can write catchy pop songs is all right with me…
