The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

Don’t forget to support the sponsors of the show – Future Promotions, Innocence Back2Back Mixtapes and, of course, the Ravers Dateline (0839812752 to meet boy ravers and 0839812753 to meet girl ravers).

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.

And on with the show…
