It’s a long overdue debut for The Nightingales on The Joint. They have been at the front of our musical mind for the last month. Partly because their frontman, Robert Lloyd, is the subject of a new documentary but also because their new song, Gales Doc, is a wonderful tune and a metacommentary (sorry) on said film.
If anyone can let us know where we can legitimately grab or stream a copy of this movie in New Zealand, let us know. We’ve e-mailed various companies involved in its creation but had no response so far.
RIP Dele Fadele, NME journalist during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Although he actually died sometime during 2018 the news only became public a few weeks ago.
In 1992 he became one of the first people to call Morrissey out on his flirtation with right wing imagery.
“For what’s it’s worth, I don’t think Morrissey is a racist. He just likes the trappings and the culture that surround the outsider element. He has some racist friends. And if he carries on this way, he’ll have thousands more.”
Unfortunately, we now know how that particular flirtation turned out.
Mr. Fadele also fronted his own band, Welfare Heroine, and it’s their ever-so-slightly-baggy cover version of the 1969 Peter Sarstedt song “Where Do You Go To My Lovely” that features in today’s show.
Like I was saying on the show last week, I’m so far behind on music releases it’s just not funny anymore. I’ve missed some really good stuff over the last year.
However, thanks to Dave Imlay at Galaxy Records I got to have a listen to The Golden Awesome‘s album “Autumn” which was released November 2011 by M’Lady’s Records and must have got an NZ release earlier this year. One for all shoegaze freaks.
