The Show: New Zealand International Film Festival

The New Zealand International Film Festival is here!!!

If you want to attend films in style why not treat yourself to a Cinemetal t-shirt as worn by RDU’s very own Splash? Splash recommends the Jodorowsky / Judas Priest look as seen below. We’re keen on the Carpenter design.

The Show: Christmas special? Best of 2013? Or just the same old 60’s, krautrock, hip-hop, indie pop, surf rock, electro, nu-soul, house trap?

If we’d got our act together it would have been option A, maybe we’ll do option B next week for the final show of 2013, but instead we’ll resort to type and do option C, the usual.

In lieu of a Christmas special here’s the Jive Bunny & The Mixmasters’ megamix of Phil Spector’s classic 1963 Christmas album.

The Show: Rants, manifestos and lists

A wee while ago we played a track by Pairs entitled “A surgeon at a hospital in Shanghai severed a nerve in my groin” (tip of the hat to Sean Hocking of Metal Postcard Records). As you’ve probably guessed, we’re suckers for songs that are rants, manifestos, or lists. The aforementioned Pairs track probably falls into the latter camp and is a real blast.

Bill Bird of RDU’s legendary Human Pleasure @ Hourly Rates has let it be known that there is an accompanying video. Watch it below in all its technicolor, domestic chores, stop motion glory.

And here’s the playlist in full – no ads this week so it’s a concentrated 2 hour hit.
