The Show: He said a song is just a song

In which Fraserhead starts off with a 1982 Prefab Sprout classic all about being addicted to radio, then zig zags through the realms of wonky electronics, dark house, wobbly techno, twee pop, melancholic pop, some sifty rock’n’roll… oh… and some classic 1970s Japanese whisky advertisements (see below).

The Show: In the ballroom of my mind…

Fraserhead at the controls this week, starting off motorik-ish, then delving into new Christchurch beats, followed by jumping all over the place with house, surf, garage, drone and techno.

And how the hell did we ever sleep on Queen Neptune? Their recent release “The Queen’s Speech” is genius, and the album released at the start of 2017 is pure motorik bliss.

The Show: “Like shearing a pig”

No criticism is implied.

No criticism is implied.

This is how Vladimir Putin deals with vexatious and frivolous enquiries about US citizens being lost in the Moscow airport transit lounge:

“In any case, I’d rather not deal with such questions, because anyway it’s like shearing a pig – lots of screams but little wool.”

Read the full story. He should watch Deliverance. And while he may not have a fondness for pigs he does have a love for horses. And guns. And knives. And judo.
