The Show: Behold, Old Scratch in 6-string form…

We do like a good prank call. But if a phone isn’t available, email can be just as good. On Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast BROKEN RECORD, Dave Hill recounts the time he posed as 19 year old ‘Lance’ from Gary, Indiana – founder of the world’s darkest metal band of all time – WITCH TAINT. Through an ongoing email conversation ‘Lance’ engages the legendary Saiitham of the Norwegian Black Metal community in witty passive-aggressive banter. It resulted in ‘Lance’ having to form said Witch Taint. Life imitates art.

The Show: In the ballroom of my mind…

Fraserhead at the controls this week, starting off motorik-ish, then delving into new Christchurch beats, followed by jumping all over the place with house, surf, garage, drone and techno.

And how the hell did we ever sleep on Queen Neptune? Their recent release “The Queen’s Speech” is genius, and the album released at the start of 2017 is pure motorik bliss.

Suckers stare but I don’t care

Lots of bleeps and beats and washing machine rhythms today with not too many vocals or words spoken. Starting off with the funk, then delving into the techno, a hip hop interlude, and then finishing off with the mellow and melancholic.
