Best Joy Division cover ever?

Last Saturday during the gig guide we criminally neglected to inform you that Permanence (Joy Division Covers Project) by huge popular demand are playing another gig at The Dux this Saturday night. So if you missed the last gig DO NOT miss this one!

And by pure coincidence here’s Steel Harmony covering Joy Division’s “Transmission”. The performance was at Procession in Deansgate, Manchester last Sunday. Ah, the steel drum. The only instrument that’s cooler than a cowbell.

Tip of the hat to Kebabette and The Beat.

The show: Jet Jaguar drops in

Jet Jaguar
Jet Jaguar models a bright orange hoodie from the Tommy Hilfiger “Guantanamo Bay” collection.

We didn’t scare him off. Jet Jaguar, as promised, did drop into the show for an hour* to play some brand new tunes, chat about Malty Media (his collaborative radio show with Aquaboogie), and subtly plug the hell out of the latest compilation he appears on Apropos of Nothing.

Off air it was more like a Gitmo interrogation session – ironic really because Mr Jaguar was wearing a bright orange hoodie from the Tommy Hilfiger “Guantanamo Bay” collection.

At least we got to the bottom of the mystery regarding his website’s odd domain name www.nonwrestler.com. Turns out that way back in the day when Mr Jaguar was trying to register the Jet Jaguar domain name he discovered that a Mexican wrestler already owned it. Henceforth he decided that instead of trying to come up with a new moniker it would just be easier to use the term “non wrestler”. Now, that’s genius.

And a bonus for you music geeks – Jet Jaguar recommends AudioMulch.

* It’s possible that Mr Jaguar stuck around for an hour because we hid his wallet (so he couldn’t catch a bus or taxi) and cellphone (so he couldn’t call for help).
