The Show: No name. Just a number. 027 242 8635.

As always, every track we play on the show is a hit, so it’s hard to pick favourites. But in these post-Covid times of uncertain futures allow us to recommend the new DARKSPACE fundraiser compilation which celebrates two of Ōtautahi’s premier music venues, Darkroom and Space Academy. It’s almost like being back at gigs.

And on with the show…

The Show: I’ll only feel worse, till I’m riding in a hearse, and I’m gone…

Thank you Matt Kennedy of fellow 8K.NZ show UNDERGROUND AUSTRALIANA for pointing us in the direction of Adelaide’s PEAK TWINS. Sure, “So Long” came out in 2013, but we’re slow on the uptake of most things, those good things take time, and a ballad with a dreamy David Lynch Roadhouse crooning vibe is pretty timeless anyway.

The Show: The mystery of Scottish sport is why we hate the English so…

Euro 2020 2021 is currently underway and preparation for today’s show coincided with the build up to the England versus Scotland match.

So much to play for! A win for Scotland would surely guarantee secession or independence. And a win for England would surely vindicate Brexiteers everywhere. Or maybe we were being unrealistic. And then we woke up Saturday morning and saw the match end in a 0-0 draw.

However, we will never pass up an excuse to rummage around in the archives and play Primal Scream, Irvine Welsh & On-U Sound’s The Big Man And The Scream Team Meet The Barmy Army Uptown.

And on with the show…

The Show: I’ll be eating breakfast in the evening, as the world crumbles in May…

More sneaky threesomes on the show today, this time round plundering new albums from LES BAXTERS and PICKLE DARLING.

And we do love our synth-pop. So how could we resist MANIFEST KITSUNE‘s “catchy, creepy Lovecraft inspired synthwave live electronic anthem for the surreal year of 2021”? Hint: we couldn’t.
