The Show: Party like it’s 1991

The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour (and Ebony Bones)

Like Ebony Bones, The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour.

As we mention towards the end of the show, we did encounter some problems with the recording for the podcast. We’ve had to resort to using our uncompressed back up option. The songs still sound pretty good though…

Happy 10th birthday Christchurch Art Gallery!!!

To celebrate their tin anniversary you will find some ginormous tin men (huge gnomes) outside the gallery entrance on Worcester Boulevard. There’s also a big marquee set up on the High Street / Tuam Street corner outside C1 with all sort of events happening this weekend to launch Populate! – the tenth-birthday programme of art round the city. Details about the weekend festivities here!

And not to be outdone Christchurch City Libraries have made the Freegal service available to library members. Three free legit MP3 downloads a week from the Sony catalogue! Wonder if they’ve got any Freegal Sharkey?

The Show: It was 30 years ago today, Donna Summer taught the Mancs to play

Apologies for the woozy and disorientating sound levels / effects at the start and end of today’s podcast – we were best by a myriad of technical issues. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Ou quelque chose.

The first part of the show was a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the release of New Order’s top party anthem and conga line favourite “Blue Monday“.

By the band’s own admission the song contained elements of  Klein & MBO’s “Dirty Talk” and a drum pattern lifted from a Donna Summer b-side. We didn’t get time to showcase the rest of the building blocks – the bassline from Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” and a Kraftwerk sample or two.

However it does give us a chance to post this video again, the best of all the “Blue Monday” cover versions by the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir.
