The Show: Pearly Qdrops Drops

We admit that the pun for this week’s show title came first and we then frantically tried to base a playlist around it. Very much a cart-before-the-horse scenario.

It proved to be a good excuse for our biennial trawl through the Cocteau Twins back catalogue, cover versions and all. This included finding a surprising take on “Wax & Wane” by Deftones, which narrowly failed to make the cut in today’s set.

The QAnon portion of the pun is provided by an interview from the All Gas No Brakes YouTube channel (imagine a Louis Theroux documentary put through a Tim & Eric filter).

The remainder of the spoken word clips are taken from On The Media’s “Spheres Of Influence” which takes a dive into “conspirituality” and the rise of pastel QAnon.

And on with the show…
