The Show: Try, try, try. Just you try…

A few sneaky threesomes on the show today from Blair Parkes and The Big Fresh Collective. (This is our usual tactic when we find it far too difficult to narrow the choice down to a single track from a new album)…

New Brighton’s finest, Blair Parkes is back with his latest album “new building”, featuring Ryan Fisherman, Miss Mercury and Marcus Thomas. Perfect jangly pop music.

Liam K Swiggs has also been busy over in Redwood. FOOTMAHI 2021 is the latest project out of The Big Fresh Collective. 160bpm madness crafted by producers born or currently residing in Aoteroa New Zealand, from the dirty south all the way up to Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland.

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

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: It seems nowadays cab rides are rather pricely…

On the show today, highlights include a sneaky threesome from the new ITALIANS DO IT BETTER compilation “After Dark 3”, new releases from Ōtautahi Christchurch denizens HORN, VIOLET FRENCH, T.G. SHAND, LOCAL FLORIST., ZANE 2000, DOUJIN DUKE, and WURLD SERIES.

Plus our favourite Brisbane beatsmith ANARCHOSOPHIST recently got in touch to remind us about a few of his new cuts. If you like woozy, lofi, soundtrack hip-hop and you like cats then you’re sure going to dig “The Cat King in the Year of the Plague”…

By the way, today’s show title originated with an earworm of the Bob James classic “Angela” lead to a YouTube treasure hunt starting with Bob James discussing being sampled by the hip-hop community:

And thus led to the (re)discovery of Souls of Mischief “Cab Fare”:
