The Show: RIP Mark “Sexy Animal” Banfield

We are saddened by the news of the sudden passing of Mark Banfield aka The Beckenham Butcher. A true Christchurch legend, Elvis impersonator extraordinaire, and long time fan and supporter of The Joint.

For that reason a sneaky, sleazy and dirty threesome of SEXY ANIMALS tracks on the show today.

The Show: I still get nervous metaphysically…

Artwork by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend BLAIR PARKES

Musically the New Year used to feel like the graveyard shift of the music business –  a time of the year full of remixes and reissues and repackaging. This year, maybe due to the kids just getting on with getting on there seems to be a steady stream of releases coming out of Christchurch – Ōtautahi.

For that reason on the show today listen out for recent releases from Joint favourites Kelvin Hurts (ex CHC now ALK), Liam K. Swiggs, Mad Frank, Dilemma Beats, Jagā, a sneaky threesome from pickle darling, and some synth loveliness from the mysterious Supernova Wolf. Plus we plunder the immaculate selections of Keytars & Violins for some of the best left field techno of 2018. Happy New Year.

And speaking of Christchurch output, the artwork above is by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend Blair Parkes. Listen to his tunes at https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com and have a peek at his artworks at https://blairparkes.wordpress.com

The Show: Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus

Fraserhead is tripping out on milo‘s “galahad in goosedown (fiat iustitia et pereat mundus)”. The most perfect beats and nuttiest most truthful lyrics of 2018. Tip of the hat to the legendary Trevor Jackson.

‘If life were a dream of euphoria
We would not have schizophrenia or paranoia’
