The Show: So goodbye I’m a-leavin’

RIP Robbie Shakespeare…

Not sure if “Boops (Here To Go)” is the song he’d most want to be remembered for but it’s in today’s playlist because it’s an 80’s cut-n-paste classic here at The Joint HQ.

…RIP Steve Bronski…

We managed to sneak in part of the 12″ version of “Smalltown Boy” to pay our respects. To fully appreciate the continuing relevance of that song we recommend this recent BBC Soul Music podcast.

… and RIP Mike Nesmith

This news came in too late for us to celebrate his life on the show but he was our favourite Monkee, wrote one of our all time favourite tunes * and we happen to be part way through his autobiography.

And on with the show…

Blackpool Rocks

“A Seaside Ting”

No idea what to make of Blackpool grime but Blackpool grime makes it into the show, courtesy of Afghan Dan. He’s also responsible for the most telling / affecting quote from this Noisey documentary – “That’s not really talent, that’s survival” – at the five and a half minute mark.

If you’re keen to dig deeper into the sends, disses and beefs described above let us refer you to the YouTube channel BGMedia, the one-stop shop for all your Blackpool grime needs.

Sunday May 11th, 1980, 6:55am

Thanks, once again, to The Intercepted for the Trump skits that preface the start of their podcasts and that we shamelessly recycle in our mixes. This week’s GoodFellas effort is particularly good and had us fondly recalling one of the greatest cinematic depictions of coke paranoia.

If they had been wiseguys, I wouldn’t have heard a thing. I would’ve been dead

The Show: Now, that’s what we call a stereo

Now, that really is a soundsystem to be proud of. The Dewaele brothers and James Murphy wanted to get back to basics and build a proper disco set up. Add some McIntosh amps to some nice cabinets and drivers, sprinkle them round the edge of a dancefloor and, hey presto, a classy soundsystem!!! We will build our own this weekend. Details over at The Vinyl Factory.

Tip of the hat to Stoney Roads.

That Annie rave video countdown we mentioned? See below. We really wish that Utrecht Amiga Squad existed.
