The Show: He said a song is just a song

In which Fraserhead starts off with a 1982 Prefab Sprout classic all about being addicted to radio, then zig zags through the realms of wonky electronics, dark house, wobbly techno, twee pop, melancholic pop, some sifty rock’n’roll… oh… and some classic 1970s Japanese whisky advertisements (see below).

No wrinkles. No crinkles. No seams that show.

We are seriously thinking of starting a “This is going straight to the poolroom” segment for the show. Straight in at number one is this gem of an ad from 1976…

Fraserhead on duty today, starting off with a sneaky threesome off the new Soulwax album “From Deewee”, there’s some dark synth action from ÉLAN VITAL and PILOOSKI, we delve into soothing, thudding techno from JASSS, LIZA AIKIN, and HØF, plus beats and atmospherics galore from $HIT and $HINE, SKYMNING, BAILTER SPACE, AUDIOPHYSICAL, JOE JACKSON, and MR AMISH, to name but a few.

We wanted stupid entertainment, baby, we asked for it

Amongst other things, Fraserhead plays the beats (from the likes of BOLIS PUPUL, ALEXIS LE-FAN, SKYMNING, BORROWED CS), the beatless (courtesy of SARAH DAVACHI, BLACK MERLIN, and JAPAN BLUES), plus some proggy psych rock from Cologne trio MOUTH.

There’s even some telephone calls via PILOOSKI’s mix for the LEMAIRE men fall/winter 2018 show. Right up our alley. Have a listen below for the full, voyeuristic effect…

 

Otherwise, here’s the show…
