The Show: The Lebensraum of popular music

If you enjoyed the opening to today’s show – and who wouldn’t like Whitney Houston’s music being described as tyrannical and capable of crushing every tune in your record collection – the full exchange between Edward George and John Doran is available as a podcast via The Quietus. It is for subscribers only but this one interview is well worth the price of admission.

Meanwhile, battle lines have been drawn within the greater Joint family over the best version of Harry Styles’ “As It Was” – the original, the Arcade Fire cover or Harry performing the tune live at Coachella. Listen to all 3 in the epilogue or watch them below.

And on with the show…

The Show: “Must We Fling This Filth At Our Pop Kids” 2

We first asked this question back in April 2017 and the answer remains the same. Yes.

So have a listen to back-to-back bawdy lyrics from Cupcakke and Dry Cleaning. We wanted to follow those two artists with a new tune from Katie Vick but The Joint is unable to (play songs containing the word) cum three times in a row.

The Show: Record Store Day + 7

On the show today Fraserhead mines a rich vein of Christchurch music from the likes of Yvnalesca, Pinn’d, Haan-808, The Salad Boys and Misfit Mod whilst The Herb Whisperer trawls through the debris of Record Store Day 2013 – The Uncluded (see video below) being the undoubted highlight. Also listen out for new shiz from King Midas Sound, !!!, and Ben La Desh.

No animals were harmed in the making of this video, but some of the animals must have been harmed at some point.
