The Show: Doomsday

RIP MF DOOM. 1971-2020.

Saddened to learn that MF DOOM aka Daniel Dumile, one of The Joint’s patron saints, passed away on 31 October 2020. The first quarter of the show today features some of DOOM’s highlights but it’s difficult to do justice to a lyrical genius, so follow these links for more detailed reflection…

On a more joyous and Christmassy note, ‘Barry: The Man Who Moves The Music’ was released just before Xmas in honour of Ōtautahi scene champion, RDU Wednesday Drive host and all-around living legend Andrew Barry aka A BAZ. All proceeds go to the Christchurch City Mission – Te Whare Mīhana ki Ōtautahi. Have a listen below.

The Show: They don’t know things that you can be

Photographer William Eggleston likes to make music on his piano and synth.
At the age of 78 he has just released his debut album Musik.
We suspect “Untitled Improvisation FD 1.10” would impress Justice.

The Show: He said a song is just a song

In which Fraserhead starts off with a 1982 Prefab Sprout classic all about being addicted to radio, then zig zags through the realms of wonky electronics, dark house, wobbly techno, twee pop, melancholic pop, some sifty rock’n’roll… oh… and some classic 1970s Japanese whisky advertisements (see below).
