The Show: Taite Gallery

Happy birthday Aotearoa. Happy birthday Bob Marley. And most importantly, happy birthday Neil Swiggs, Esq.

Going way back to 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand, legendary music journalist Dylan Taite interviewed legendary rastaman Bob Marley, an interview secured via the well worn journalist’s route of “having a kick-around.”

And here’s the playlist (not quite) in full… we’re missing a few minutes where we played the Melvin van Peebles song. Apologies. That’s what hot weather and power cuts does to broadcasting equipment.

The Show: The weird and wonderful world of…

A quick round up…

The NWA movie “Straight Outta Compton” hits the big screen in the next week but if you don’t have $17 to spare for a movie ticket or are too busy to spend 147 minutes sitting in a cinema get the gist with the EXPLICIT CONTENT ONLY version of the classic album. One for the whole family to sing along to. Is “nuts” really a swear word though?!?!?!?!?

Before people queued up for Apple products they queued up for Microsoft software. Not a bad earner for the Rolling Stones. Strange days from 1995…

Lord Echo at the Christchurch Arts Festival tonight! Be bloody aware of large freaking eels though. If you’re on epic acid you’re not imagining it. That’s the power of art.

The Show: Indiecision 2014

Today the Herb Whisperer promises lots of indie.

For you vinyl nutters and Madlib aficionados out there, have a peek at this wonderful interview with Laura Leishman in the Radio France vinyl archive. Love the fact that Madlib bugs out when discovering rare records in the vaults. More from the Radio Vinyle series here.

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?
