The Show: Game over

game-over

Greetings friends, family, whānau.

Today is our last show before we head off on an indefinite sabbatical. Other commitments mean we need to take a break for a while.

The Joint first broadcast on RDU way back in July 2001 when the frequency was still 98.3FM. We started out on Sunday afternoons but after a while switched to Saturday afternoons. The reasons are lost in the mists of time.

By our really rough and unscientific calculations we reckon we’ve done 665 shows so far. That makes this final show today episode number 666. Not a shabby effort really. To put that in some completely unrelated context Ryan Giggs made 672 league appearances for Manchester United and David O’Leary made 558 league appearance for Arsenal.

Thank you for all your kind messages via Facebook, Twitter and the RDU text machine. It was a blast.

To paraphrase and plagiarise James Murphy…

Yeah, we lost our edge
The kids came up from behind
We lost our edge to the kids
From France and from London
And from Christchurch
But we were there
We lost our edge to better-looking people
With better ideas and more talent
And they’re actually really, really nice

The Show: Scary

Halloween? Not sure how often we’ve been able to celebrate it on the show previously so hold on for a token effort. Meantime, here’s a true American horror story courtesy of Dance Armstrong.

The Show: Scales of the unexpected

Fraserhead would like to thank Bamboozle for his White Light Mix #73 for introducing him to the wonderful Jesse Boykins III. Have a peek at the video below for “B4 The Night Is Thru”. Looks like they go to some crazy parties.

We’ve recommended a bunch of other videos during the show so here goes…

The Show: Bailterspace coming home?

I quite like the new Bailterspace album “Strobosphere”. One of my favourite bands of all time. The new album brings back good memories of their Christchurch gigs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, possibly the loudest gigs I’ve ever been to.

Bailterspace have been based in NYC for many years now so I never thought I would get to see them play live ever again. Am very tempted to go see them at Laneway in Auckland but found out yesterday that they will be playing at The Dux here in Christchurch on Saturday 2 Feb!!! That’s what I call a homecoming.

Below is the video for “World We Share” from the latest album “Strobosphere”. Damn fine clanging deep sea fishing trawler rock ‘n’ roll I say.

The Show: Heavenly (K) Pop Hit

Slightly truncated first hour of the show as we completely failed to bypass the extensive security on the RDUnit and triggered all sorts of alarms.

Apologies to our neighbours for the unbearable noise and incessant whining.

And the alarms.
