The Show: Did we say that we’ve never played Skrillex?

I don’t think we’ve ever played Skrillex on the show before. Maybe that changed today. Does Dog Blood count? If so, sorry Kenny if you’re listening.

Need something to do tonight? Then head along to the Sexy Animals gig at The Wunderbar. Not sure what to expect? The gig poster below might give you some sifty clues…

The Show: Goth-awful

Last Wednesday was World Goth Day, a global Unesco initiative sponsored by The Illuminati and Estee Lauder. The aim of the day is to take the world’s mind off dubstep and also to sell more candles, red wine, and eye liner.

Today we discovered that The Herb Whisperer went through an 8 month Goth phase during 1986. The Goth binge climaxed in the form of a Sisters of Mercy gig and shortly after The Herb Whisperer lost interest hence avoiding Gothageddon. But he still has a place in his heart for The Rose Of Avalanche, especially the classic “L.A. Rain”…

The Show: WARNING. May contain traces of jazz.

This is what you call a freakout. The Bruce Springsteen cover version was pretty damn spooky but Neneh Cherry‘s version of Suicide’s 1979 single “Dream Baby Dream” is crazy. Like someone strangling a saxophone. Have a listen below. God bless those crazy Norwegians at Smalltown Supersound.

The (Royal We) Show: Musical Checks And Balances

Spanky mentioned the idea of musical checks and balances on the RDU Breakfast Show yesterday morning. So, with Fraserhead away, will an unbalanced Joint have enough self-regulation to stop itself descending into an unrelenting mix of happy hardcore, bagpipe jazz, blackened crust and zydeco?

Ladyhawke and aubergines

Ladyhawke, our favourite electro Shona Laing tribute artist, is touring NZ late September early October (gig details at Under The Radar).

We’ll be at the Christchurch gig, Tuesday 3 November at The Bedford, in the moshpit dressed up as aubergines (or eggplants). Actually, we won’t really. The Herb Whisperer despises eggplant and apparently Ladyhawke is allergic to them, hence the connection he feels with Ladyhawke, a connection he first discovered when in London back in August.
