The Show: Public Service Broadcasting’s Eleven Cities Tour

Elfstedentocht. Eleven Cities Tour.

It’s the world’s biggest ice skating race, taking in the Dutch cities of Leeuwarden, Sneek, IJlst, Sloten, Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker and Dokkum, but it only happens when all the waterways connecting the cities are frozen to a depth of at least 15cm and the last time that happened was 1997.

That 16 year gap didn’t stop the Explore The North Festival commissioning Joint favourites Public Service Broadcasting to write two brand new songs to accompany archival footage of the event. The results were released on line this week and Elfstedentocht Part One made it onto today’s playlist.

The Show: There’s no school like the old school and Dizzee & Wiley are the fucking Headmasters

Apologies. We had an uninformed dig at Sasha Frere-Jones‘ Destiny Child’s “Bug-A-B00” remix saying that he was over 10 years late to the whole early 2000s bootleg craze. Upon closer inspection (eg reading the fineprint on his Soundcloud) his remix was done back in 2003.

Double apologies. No decent recording of yesterday’s show, so no podcast.

The Show: You’re a winner when you beat the game

Near the start of the show I played Red 7‘s “I Lost My Shoes On Acid” (we’ve all been there, haven’t we?). I recently nabbed the track from the fantastic Keytars & Violins blog and thought that the vocal sample was quite familiar. Turned out to be Hugh Masekela’s 1984 hit “Don’t Go Lose It Baby”. A blast from the past, as they say.

And we finished off the show with Pet Shop Boys’ second single “Vocal” off their latest album “Electric”. Have a peek at the video below. It’s made up of footage of what looks like late 80s early 90s raves. Bloody brilliant.

Speaking of the 1980s, would you like fries with that Andy? Video for the new Tristesse Contemporaine single “Waiting”.
