The Show: Be urself

Today’s playlist was inspired by an Alexis Petridis article on the Guardian website – ‘Be urself’: meet the teens creating a generation gap in music

At The Joint HQ we love a good generation gap, the wider the better, so expect more from (and I’m paraphrasing heavily here) 80’s Sarah Records soundalikes racking up 30m+ YouTube views.

And we’ve just realised we still haven’t posted the video for CHAII’s Digebasse  (Enough), a massive oversight on our part which we can fix right now…

The show: Failing to bridge the generation gap

Can men of advanced years continue to broadcast saucy tunes made by young people without appearing, at best, odd or, at worst, creepy?

We’re not sure, so we invite you to listen to all of Posi+ive by Babeo Baggins in your own time.

12pm – 1pm

1pm – 2pm

The Show: “Gorgeous” George Galloway vs Bill “No Spin Zone” O’Reilly. And the return of The Nicol Brothers.

Tunisian / Palestinian combo Checkpoint 303 have a brand new track out, “Needle Stuck On Lebanon“, which makes good use of news broadcast samples from around the world.

Not only should we thank them for letting us know the song is available as a free download from their website, we are also eternally grateful that they sent us this link to a George Galloway interview that appeared on Sky News UK recently. It’s not a spectacle for the fainthearted, as the Respect MP tears strips off the hapless journalist to the point where he comes across as a misogynistic bully.

We can’t imagine Rupert Murdoch was amused and it certainly wouldn’t have gone to air on Rupert’s other news channel, Fox. Unless George went up against Bill O’Reilly. That really would be a heavyweight challenge. So much so that it could be made the equivalent of a pay-per-view prizefight. We’re willing to cough up a few bucks to watch so let’s start lobbying for it now.

And thank you to The Nicol Brothers aka Offset and Hank for dropping in today to lay down a few drum’n’bass sets. Cheers fellas.
