The Show: My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…

In which Fraserhead does things a little bit differently today by starting off with the slow, slow, slow burners and builds up to the bangers at the end, with all sorts in between…

The new Ben Woods album PUT is finally out next Wednesday, and on white vinyl no less. I thought Mr. Woods’ single ROMANCY from earlier this year was going to be my favourite track of 2019 but I didn’t count on hearing another gentle lullaby in the form of GOOD 2 BE SLEEPING. How can you not love a song with the lyric “My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…”?

And on with the show…

The Show: Electric black shadow runs ‘cross the sun…

New release from THE BIG FRESH COLLECTIVE out right now. JET SET GHETTO TECH sees Liam K. Swiggs and DJ Simon Dallow pay tribute to the video game soundtracks of Hideki Naganuma.

And how the heck did Captain Beefheart make it into the show today? I’ve always been a bit scared of his reputation but at a recent talk at the Christchurch Art Gallery legendary photographer Laurence Aberhart mentioned that painter Bill Hammond may have had his wheels spun by Captain Beefheart’s “Run Paint Run Run” which could possibly explain Bill Hammond’s predilection for paint running. And after summoning the courage to listen to said catchy ditty I was hooked.

Here endeth today’s fine art lesson.

The Show: “Must We Fling This Filth At Our Pop Kids” 2

We first asked this question back in April 2017 and the answer remains the same. Yes.

So have a listen to back-to-back bawdy lyrics from Cupcakke and Dry Cleaning. We wanted to follow those two artists with a new tune from Katie Vick but The Joint is unable to (play songs containing the word) cum three times in a row.
