The Show: I was feeling invincible with my VPN…

Henry Nicol of DOG POWER has been busy over in Idvor, Serbia teaming up with partner Lidija Raletić to form new project LEATHER IMAGE. The album CLEAN FREAK out early 2021. More info over at UTR.

Here’s some bonus content. Missed this one from THE CHATS first time round (July 2019) but it’s pretty timeless in a retro kinda way.

Oh, okay, have at it with the new one from THE CHATS:

The Show: Bloody Anglo-Saxons. Coming over here.

We’d love to be able to present you with a video of the Stewart Lee bit that was sampled on today’s last song courtesy of Asian Dub Foundation.

But we can’t.

The best we can manage is a slightly (deliberately?) wonky clip on  Daily Motion. So you’ll just have to close your eyes for four minutes whilst the picture is frozen but the audio keeps rolling.

On the other hand we do have the official video for the tune

And on with the show…

The Show: Well the furniture’s the same, but the menu’s rearranged…

Newish from the one and only BLAIR PARKES “maybe you heard”. Perfect fuzziness straight outta New Brighton, New Zealand. As the wise Grant Smithies recently said “the perfect golden ratio of melody to noise”. Couldn’t agree more.

Download it here: https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com/track/maybe-you-heard

By the way, today’s blog heading was inspired by the rather fabulous “Mork n Mindy” collaboration between BILLY NOMATES and SLEAFORD MODS.
