Do you like your liquorice salty or your licorice sweet?
Next something to do next weekend? RDU’s Hauswerk presents Frank Booker at The Monday Room next Saturday night 20 October 2012. We’re away next Saturday but the good news is that Hauswerk’s John Ussher will be filling in for us. Mr Ussher is keen to bust out some classic hip hop, trip hop, downbeat tunes as well as some classic soul.
Guns. Gyrocopters. G Plan armchair. Stroked white pussycat. Ninjas. Spaceships. Secret base in a volcano. And fricking piranhas WITHOUT laser weapons on their heads. Fricking. Piranhas. Only Roald Dahl could have written it. And only Sean Connery could have fronted it without laughing. Genius. Evil genius. That’s right – it’s You Only Live Twice…
One for the music nerds out there, the amazing story of Donnie & Joe Emerson. A farmer notices that his sons are really into music so he builds them a studio and they record a lost classic in 1979.
Been listening to Ariel Pink’s new album “Mature Themes” and enjoying his cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s 1979 lost classic “Baby”. Apparently it’s been known about for years in record collector circles but I only found out about it recently via The Guardian Music Weekly 8 June 2012 podcast.
It’s been quite a few years since RDU has had a comedy show.
So we tried to make up for it several times during the show today by inadvertently leaving the microphones after we had finished our voice breaks. Luckily you can’t quite hear who we call a c–t for singing badly, the phone numbers of our dealers, or the name of the politician who ate all the pies.
