The Show: Pearly Qdrops Drops

We admit that the pun for this week’s show title came first and we then frantically tried to base a playlist around it. Very much a cart-before-the-horse scenario.

It proved to be a good excuse for our biennial trawl through the Cocteau Twins back catalogue, cover versions and all. This included finding a surprising take on “Wax & Wane” by Deftones, which narrowly failed to make the cut in today’s set.

The QAnon portion of the pun is provided by an interview from the All Gas No Brakes YouTube channel (imagine a Louis Theroux documentary put through a Tim & Eric filter).

The remainder of the spoken word clips are taken from On The Media’s “Spheres Of Influence” which takes a dive into “conspirituality” and the rise of pastel QAnon.

And on with the show…

“We’re not cutting edge… we’re the clean up crew.”

That’s Fraserhead’s description of the show on-air today. It’s true. We’re the last to arrive at musical crime scenes, handling the hazardous tunes other shows have left (way) behind. RDU’s very own Sunshine Cleaning team.

No time for a cone of silence today but RIP Chris Kelly aka Mac Daddy.

The Show: Italians know their Panini

Italian glam rock revivalists Giuda and their 70’s Panini football sticker references feature on the show today.

A music video set in a decrepit sport ground puts us in mind of The Fall with their promo for “Kicker Conspiracy”, filmed at Burnley’s ground, Turf Moor, in the early 80’s.

And as mentioned at the end of the show, you should never forget about Dre because apparently Dr Dre is 2012′s highest paid musician.
