The Show: Try, try, try. Just you try…

A few sneaky threesomes on the show today from Blair Parkes and The Big Fresh Collective. (This is our usual tactic when we find it far too difficult to narrow the choice down to a single track from a new album)…

New Brighton’s finest, Blair Parkes is back with his latest album “new building”, featuring Ryan Fisherman, Miss Mercury and Marcus Thomas. Perfect jangly pop music.

Liam K Swiggs has also been busy over in Redwood. FOOTMAHI 2021 is the latest project out of The Big Fresh Collective. 160bpm madness crafted by producers born or currently residing in Aoteroa New Zealand, from the dirty south all the way up to Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland.

The Show: Have a capachoochoo on us…

Bit late to the Train Guy party (as always with any meme) but do love Bob Mortimer’s uses of trains or living rooms as stages. Pretty sure it’s #capachoochoo but if you want to say #campachoochoo (but not too obnoxiously) in a public place that’s fine with us too.
