The Show: French nouns have genders. I do not.

revenge-of-the-she-punks.jpg

We’re currently working our way through Vivien Goldman’s book “Revenge Of The She-Punks – A Feminist Music History From Poly Styrene To Pussy Riot”. That might go some way to explaining the presence of Rosa Yemen, Bush Tetras and Bikini Kill on today’s show. Expect even more highlights in a couple of weeks time when we finally get to grips with Fea and Fertil Miseria.

And whilst we are on the subject of Poly Styrene, allow us to recommend the recent documentary about her life – “I Am A Cliché

The Show: And whatever happened to Bubba Sparxxx?

Kudos to Denzel Curry for rhyming Bubba Sparxxx with Rosa Parks in “Take_it_Back_v2”, one of our favourite couplets of the year so far.

“After dark the riot starts, way uglier than Bubba Sparxxx
Still tryin’ to raise the charts so I don’t have to push a shopping cart
You fell in love with Kali Ma, but now it’s time to take your heart
These niggas want to take it back like civil rights and Rosa Parks”

The Show: Well that’s gentrification you prick

We were going to use more of the #MAGAChallenge entries on today’s show but, quite frankly, we lost the will to live after viewing a half dozen. Better to cut back on the sneering and squeeze in more tunes. Or as a member of Consolidated’s audience put it during a live show “I reckon you should shut the fuck up and play some music”.

And if we had played more music we could have squeezed in the new Pregoblin single.
