The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

Pale, Stale Males & Sing Speech

James, Eno, CFTPA, heck, even Charlie Brown – the pale, stale male death rattle is heard throughout today’s show (Gaz Coombes didn’t make the cut… this week).

Then there’s the sing speech / speak singing – Laurie Anderson, Tami T, Special Request, Flux and (at a very dubby push) Miss Red.

All interspersed with our favourite moments from a tournament we never wanted to watch but discovered we didn’t have the moral fibre to ignore – FIFA World Cup Russia 2018. Never mind. We promise there’s no way we’ll be watching the calendar fucking, slave labour exploitingtradition trashing, new high bar of corruption FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Honest.

The Show: Boyle Correspondent.

And speaking of mysterious, corrupt cults, today’s show draws heavily from the soundtrack of Wild Wild Country, a Netflix documentary on the quite bizarre story of Bhagwan Raneesh’s attempts to build a utopian city in Oregon in the early 80’s.
