1971. Fifty whole years ago.
A good year for The Arsenal (winning the coveted Football League First Division and FA Cup double).
A good year for music (with albums from the likes of Can, Carly Simon, Harry Nilsson, Serge Gainsbourg, Captain Beeheart, The Carpenters and many others).
And the year Fraserhead was born.
Saying that, sadly no music from 1971 in the mix today (Harry Nilsson a few weeks back was it), but there’s a token effort with some found footage of The Arsenal’s double winning season (apologies to Spurs and Liverpool fans), and then there’s the usual cryptic blend of beats and noises.
And on with the show…
