The Show: The dishes are piling up, but that’s cool cos at least we’ve got food…

All over the shop today haphazardly and unmethodically covering the pop, psychedelic, chiptuned pop-punk, futuristic-retro pop, old prog, new prog, lo-fi bedroom pop, mardi gras indian, experimental dancehall, footwork/footmahi, ambient electronic and cyberpunk musical sub-genres, to name but a few.

We’re not ones to pick favourites but first cab off the rank today is GOLD MEDAL FAMOUS with possibly the catchiest, happiest, most uplifting and nihilistic song ever written about fading into obscurity (and other things). Have a listen to “It’s a waste of time” below and see if you disagree…

And with that done you can listen to the whole show below…
