Photographer William Eggleston likes to make music on his piano and synth.
At the age of 78 he has just released his debut album Musik.
We suspect “Untitled Improvisation FD 1.10” would impress Justice.
The Trendees – Oamaru’s finest – live and unplugged on The Joint. L to R: Matt Trendee, Eden Trendee and Austen Trendee
It’s been several years in the making but today was the on-air unplugged debut on The Joint of Oamaru’s finest, The Trendees.
Thank you Matt Trendee, Austen Trendee and Eden Trendee for cutting short your yoga workshop on Banks Peninsula and dropping in to answer some questions and playing The Trendees classics And Remember (it’s only a job) and Beach.
Near the start of the show I played Red 7‘s “I Lost My Shoes On Acid” (we’ve all been there, haven’t we?). I recently nabbed the track from the fantastic Keytars & Violins blog and thought that the vocal sample was quite familiar. Turned out to be Hugh Masekela’s 1984 hit “Don’t Go Lose It Baby”. A blast from the past, as they say.
And we finished off the show with Pet Shop Boys’ second single “Vocal” off their latest album “Electric”. Have a peek at the video below. It’s made up of footage of what looks like late 80s early 90s raves. Bloody brilliant.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
