The Show: King Rocker

It’s a long overdue debut for The Nightingales on The Joint. They have been at the front of our musical mind for the last month. Partly because their frontman, Robert Lloyd, is the subject of a new documentary but also because their new song, Gales Doc, is a wonderful tune and a metacommentary (sorry) on said film.

If anyone can let us know where we can legitimately grab or stream a copy of this movie in New Zealand, let us know. We’ve e-mailed various companies involved in its creation but had no response so far.

Once again, thanks go to the sponsors of the show – Vaders club in Peckham High Street (with Grooverider), Innersense at Peckham Lazerdrome (featuring Kemistry & Storm) and, as ever, the Ravers Dateline (probably based in Peckham as well).

And on with the show…

The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

Don’t forget to support the sponsors of the show – Future Promotions, Innocence Back2Back Mixtapes and, of course, the Ravers Dateline (0839812752 to meet boy ravers and 0839812753 to meet girl ravers).

The Show: Well the furniture’s the same, but the menu’s rearranged…

Newish from the one and only BLAIR PARKES “maybe you heard”. Perfect fuzziness straight outta New Brighton, New Zealand. As the wise Grant Smithies recently said “the perfect golden ratio of melody to noise”. Couldn’t agree more.

Download it here: https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com/track/maybe-you-heard

By the way, today’s blog heading was inspired by the rather fabulous “Mork n Mindy” collaboration between BILLY NOMATES and SLEAFORD MODS.
