The Show: Bailterspace coming home?

I quite like the new Bailterspace album “Strobosphere”. One of my favourite bands of all time. The new album brings back good memories of their Christchurch gigs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, possibly the loudest gigs I’ve ever been to.

Bailterspace have been based in NYC for many years now so I never thought I would get to see them play live ever again. Am very tempted to go see them at Laneway in Auckland but found out yesterday that they will be playing at The Dux here in Christchurch on Saturday 2 Feb!!! That’s what I call a homecoming.

Below is the video for “World We Share” from the latest album “Strobosphere”. Damn fine clanging deep sea fishing trawler rock ‘n’ roll I say.

The Show: Music Nerd Throwdown

This week musical distraction has come in the form of Shallow Rewards’ pop commentary videos – one man’s musical musings. There are 25 episodes so far and, although we don’t condone or agree with all the sentiments expressed in these clips (House Of Love only worth one half-assed single?), they make a great starting point for a throwdown between music nerds vigorous debate about the history of late 20th century popular music.

And here’s today’s playlist in full, with not one shoegazery song in sight…

The Show: Goth-awful

Last Wednesday was World Goth Day, a global Unesco initiative sponsored by The Illuminati and Estee Lauder. The aim of the day is to take the world’s mind off dubstep and also to sell more candles, red wine, and eye liner.

Today we discovered that The Herb Whisperer went through an 8 month Goth phase during 1986. The Goth binge climaxed in the form of a Sisters of Mercy gig and shortly after The Herb Whisperer lost interest hence avoiding Gothageddon. But he still has a place in his heart for The Rose Of Avalanche, especially the classic “L.A. Rain”…
