The Show: Bloody Anglo-Saxons. Coming over here.

We’d love to be able to present you with a video of the Stewart Lee bit that was sampled on today’s last song courtesy of Asian Dub Foundation.

But we can’t.

The best we can manage is a slightly (deliberately?) wonky clip on  Daily Motion. So you’ll just have to close your eyes for four minutes whilst the picture is frozen but the audio keeps rolling.

On the other hand we do have the official video for the tune

And on with the show…

The Show: From Arsedestroyer To Zoogz Rift

This show is entirely based on a Guardian music article from October this year.

From Arsedestroyer to Zoogz Rift: 50 underground albums you’ve never even heard of

We took this headline as a challenge.

We’d heard of just 3. Of those 3, only 1 had provided a song for a previous show of ours. Way back in 2010, the wonderful My Time by Roberto Cacciapaglia & Ann Steel made the playlist.

1/50 Ain’t Bad

That left 47 albums to listen to, 47 reviews to research and 47 backstories to read. That’s the thing with underground albums – chances are there’s a backstory. You know the kind of thing. The entire pressing of a recording that samples sumo bouts 1 made in a small house on Skye 2 is warped on a meat packing machine 3 but eventually released on a limited edition cassette at a Science Fiction festival 4 shortly before the artist drives off in a VW Beetle never to be heard from again 5.

30 made the final cut. Some are the lowest of lo-fi, some are the most gleeful of rackets (we’re looking at you Harry Pussy), some are plain odd and most defy our technically limited attempts to blend them seamlessly into a mix.

Same old Joint really.
