The Show: Bulbous also tapered? That’s right!

For some bizarre reason I recently got an earworm of Captain Beefheart and The Mascara Snake talking about bulbous things at the start of Trout Mask Replica’s “Pena”, hence today’s show title. Delightful fan video below if you want the whole experience.

Not to be outdone on the freakiness front UNCLE QUENTIN aka Tim “Von Klap” Moore has just released the album Famous For God. One for fans of bent and swinging James Bond soundtracks, The Avalanches, beats and synths. Sneak peek below…
