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).

And on with the show…

The Show: Dogshit Policies

The first one is three selections from the Cherry Red 7 CD box set Manchester North Of EnglandThe Chameleons, Suns Of Arqa and The Tiller BoysMore (and more bizarre) picks from this release in upcoming shows (The Hamsters? Bet Lynch’s Legs? Edward Barton?)

Following that, songs from three of the graduates from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them, Syd, Tyler & Frank, who have all dropped new tunes in the last couple of weeks.

The Show: Cover letters

The Joint has always maintained that if you’re going to cover a song, do it properly. Give the original a good aural kicking down a back alley and ignore any accusations of a lack of respect towards the original material.

We said it in the letters pages of Smash Hits* when Paul Young covered “Love Will Tear Us Apart” in 1983 and we’re saying it again today as we playlist Brian Case’s radical re-working of Elvis Costello / Robert Wyatt’s “Shipbuilding
