The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…

The Show: Lost in music

When I remembered yesterday that Nile Rodgers of Chic had been working on the new Daft Punk album it sent me on a late night YouTube bender digging up lots of classic Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards productions. In 1979 they wrote “Spacer” for French outfit Sheila and Black Devotion. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new Daft Punk album is a retread of “Discovery”. And that would be a very nice thing.

The Show: Italians know their Panini

Italian glam rock revivalists Giuda and their 70’s Panini football sticker references feature on the show today.

A music video set in a decrepit sport ground puts us in mind of The Fall with their promo for “Kicker Conspiracy”, filmed at Burnley’s ground, Turf Moor, in the early 80’s.

And as mentioned at the end of the show, you should never forget about Dre because apparently Dr Dre is 2012′s highest paid musician.
