The Show: Some may say that you are only interested in one thing…

A welcome return today from Nick Harte aka Shocking Pinks. His mysterious new MERCEDES CAMBRIDGE project “Adversary” is cinematic, darkly ambient and hypnotically crimecore. It’s the soundtrack for the film that Nicolas Winding Refn was too scared to make. Get it now on Bandcamp and/or get the cassette version via Opal Tapes.

Not to be outdone, after a long hiatus ANIKA aka Annika Henderson is back too. The new album Change is out 23 July 2021. For a wee taste have a listen to Finger Pies…

The Show: Doomsday

RIP MF DOOM. 1971-2020.

Saddened to learn that MF DOOM aka Daniel Dumile, one of The Joint’s patron saints, passed away on 31 October 2020. The first quarter of the show today features some of DOOM’s highlights but it’s difficult to do justice to a lyrical genius, so follow these links for more detailed reflection…

On a more joyous and Christmassy note, ‘Barry: The Man Who Moves The Music’ was released just before Xmas in honour of Ōtautahi scene champion, RDU Wednesday Drive host and all-around living legend Andrew Barry aka A BAZ. All proceeds go to the Christchurch City Mission – Te Whare Mīhana ki Ōtautahi. Have a listen below.

The Show: Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus

Fraserhead is tripping out on milo‘s “galahad in goosedown (fiat iustitia et pereat mundus)”. The most perfect beats and nuttiest most truthful lyrics of 2018. Tip of the hat to the legendary Trevor Jackson.

‘If life were a dream of euphoria
We would not have schizophrenia or paranoia’
