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.

The Show: Fricking piranhas (without laser weapons)

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

And if that’s got you interested in celluloid we’ll be seeing you at the New Zealand International Film Festival which starts this Thursday in Christchurch.

The show: Baby

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.

Record collectors can now rejoice because Light in The Attic Records is reissuing the “Dreamin’ Wild” album on fresh vinyl.

And here’s what the hype is about. Dig those Christine McVie style vocals…

Medicinal. Purposes. Only.

…and onto our shoulder.

Apologies for the variable sound quality of today’s show. And by that we’re not just referring to the off-mic coughing fits, which we did attempt to suppress with Monkey Shoulder Whisky.
