The Show: Pearly Qdrops Drops

We admit that the pun for this week’s show title came first and we then frantically tried to base a playlist around it. Very much a cart-before-the-horse scenario.

It proved to be a good excuse for our biennial trawl through the Cocteau Twins back catalogue, cover versions and all. This included finding a surprising take on “Wax & Wane” by Deftones, which narrowly failed to make the cut in today’s set.

The QAnon portion of the pun is provided by an interview from the All Gas No Brakes YouTube channel (imagine a Louis Theroux documentary put through a Tim & Eric filter).

The remainder of the spoken word clips are taken from On The Media’s “Spheres Of Influence” which takes a dive into “conspirituality” and the rise of pastel QAnon.

And on with the show…

The Show: Well that’s gentrification you prick

We were going to use more of the #MAGAChallenge entries on today’s show but, quite frankly, we lost the will to live after viewing a half dozen. Better to cut back on the sneering and squeeze in more tunes. Or as a member of Consolidated’s audience put it during a live show “I reckon you should shut the fuck up and play some music”.

And if we had played more music we could have squeezed in the new Pregoblin single.

And on with the show…
