The Show: Chase the disco devil!

Apologies (again) for the slightly inferior sound quality this week. A technical glitch meant we had to resort to the back up recording of the show.

Whilst we work on those glitches we pose the question for 2014 – why is Lee “Scratch” Perry not on Twitter???

The Show: ’79 Fever

Today’s opening (and truly mind boggling) song came courtesy of the Industrial Musicals website.

As well as an online archive, with audio snippets from a variety of these musicals from the 50’s to the 80’s, there’s also a book “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” which is making a strong early bid to be The Joint’s Christmas stocking filler.

For more information have a listen to an interview the authors gave to NPR, complete with recollections from a veteran of many of these productions, and have a look below at a brief appearance one of them made on the David Letterman Show.

The Show: Lost in music

When I remembered yesterday that Nile Rodgers of Chic had been working on the new Daft Punk album it sent me on a late night YouTube bender digging up lots of classic Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards productions. In 1979 they wrote “Spacer” for French outfit Sheila and Black Devotion. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new Daft Punk album is a retread of “Discovery”. And that would be a very nice thing.

The Show: It was 30 years ago today, Donna Summer taught the Mancs to play

Apologies for the woozy and disorientating sound levels / effects at the start and end of today’s podcast – we were best by a myriad of technical issues. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Ou quelque chose.

The first part of the show was a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the release of New Order’s top party anthem and conga line favourite “Blue Monday“.

By the band’s own admission the song contained elements of  Klein & MBO’s “Dirty Talk” and a drum pattern lifted from a Donna Summer b-side. We didn’t get time to showcase the rest of the building blocks – the bassline from Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” and a Kraftwerk sample or two.

However it does give us a chance to post this video again, the best of all the “Blue Monday” cover versions by the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir.
