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: If band stage positions were football formations…

Joel Gion parks the bus.

Joel Gion “parks the bus.” That’s soccerball lingo for packing the defence and smothering attacks from the other team.

…what was The Brian Jonestown Massacre‘s formation last night at The Foundry? 4-2-1? 1-3-2-1? 1-3-3? Was Joel Gion a false nine deliberately distracting us with tambourine trickery. Was Anton Newcombe playing the classic trequartista role but unconventionally orchestrating action from the right flank instead of through the middle? Unconventional minds want to know.

The Show: Making the cut

A lot of stuff didn’t. Not for quality control reasons mind. Too much music and not enough time.

Have a look at the excess we had over on The Ones That Got Away Spotify playlist. (Un)fortunately those reworkings of Roxy Music in a 20’s jazz style aren’t available in NZ and that truly bizarre Estonian Eurovision contender is YouTube only…

This is a heavily edited show – we had to cut out chunks of audio because of a dodgy microphone and, more impressively, interference caused by the transmitter overheating in the blazing Canterbury sun. Global warming my arse.
