The Show: Sparks Plugs

As The Joint reluctantly adapts to middle-aged life it’s heartening to see two 70ish year old brothers making angry, vibrant, catchy pop music. We reckon these might possibly be some of the best tunes of the Maels’ 50 year career.

And in this week’s edition of Lyrics Bingo match the following couplets to their respective songs:

“Ain’t left the city in months,
I guess Westfield knows what I want”

“I’m a janitor,
Oh my genitals”

“You’re a feminist until I won’t fuck you,
You’re a feminist until I talk to other guys”

The Show: The weird and wonderful world of…

A quick round up…

The NWA movie “Straight Outta Compton” hits the big screen in the next week but if you don’t have $17 to spare for a movie ticket or are too busy to spend 147 minutes sitting in a cinema get the gist with the EXPLICIT CONTENT ONLY version of the classic album. One for the whole family to sing along to. Is “nuts” really a swear word though?!?!?!?!?

Before people queued up for Apple products they queued up for Microsoft software. Not a bad earner for the Rolling Stones. Strange days from 1995…

Lord Echo at the Christchurch Arts Festival tonight! Be bloody aware of large freaking eels though. If you’re on epic acid you’re not imagining it. That’s the power of art.
