The Show: Scissor Sister

We’re enjoying the first couple of tunes from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds new album so much we snuck one on to the show today. “She Taught Me How to Fly” first caught our eye on an episode of Later with Jools Holland at the end of October. Look carefully. One member of the band is on backing scissors.

The Show: He said a song is just a song

In which Fraserhead starts off with a 1982 Prefab Sprout classic all about being addicted to radio, then zig zags through the realms of wonky electronics, dark house, wobbly techno, twee pop, melancholic pop, some sifty rock’n’roll… oh… and some classic 1970s Japanese whisky advertisements (see below).

The Show: In the ballroom of my mind…

Fraserhead at the controls this week, starting off motorik-ish, then delving into new Christchurch beats, followed by jumping all over the place with house, surf, garage, drone and techno.

And how the hell did we ever sleep on Queen Neptune? Their recent release “The Queen’s Speech” is genius, and the album released at the start of 2017 is pure motorik bliss.

The Show: I’m a prisoner. I’m a copier. I’m a repeater. I’m a follower.

Always fun to find a tenuous reason to stick a Martin Creed video in the blog.

Well, not that tenuous really. A Martin Creed triple play features in the middle of the show today and is bookended by our signature selection of atmospheric beats, off-kilter house, washing machine techno and fragile ballads.

Damn. Forgot to somehow insert The Woodsman (from Twin Peaks) into the show. Oh well. That can keep for next week.
