The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

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: I’m checking out, checking out…

Very excited to announce that Henry Nicol and Sam Perry’s brand new DOG Power album is finally here. Get yer stinking mitts on it over at their Bandcamp or have a listen below. The dark and sifty underbelly of Otautahi Christchurch never sounded so good. So good in fact that when trying to decide what track to play on the show today we took the easy way out and played a handful. Easy.
