The Show: Don’t ever call me your drummer again. You’re my singer!

No Charlie Watts tribute sorry, but we thoroughly recommend popping over to YouTube and watching the isolated drums video for “Gimme Shelter”. Instead, lots of new cuts from our favourite Ōtautahi cats and many more.

And on with the show…

The Show: We’re living through strange days…

For today’s show we egregiously plundered bits and pieces from the new Adam Curtis documentary series “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”. Thoroughly recommended for a bit of self-induced discombobulation.

Excited by upcoming new album “Cosmonaut” by PICKLE DARLING, which is out 21 May 2021. To keep you going in the meantime treat yourself to Bigness (Instrumentals)

Plus – and we are several seasons late to it – not forgetting the TIGA podcast First/Last Party On Earth. Rave classics today inspired by Tiga’s recently conversation with the one and only TREVOR JACKSON.

And on with the show…

The Show: It seems nowadays cab rides are rather pricely…

On the show today, highlights include a sneaky threesome from the new ITALIANS DO IT BETTER compilation “After Dark 3”, new releases from Ōtautahi Christchurch denizens HORN, VIOLET FRENCH, T.G. SHAND, LOCAL FLORIST., ZANE 2000, DOUJIN DUKE, and WURLD SERIES.

Plus our favourite Brisbane beatsmith ANARCHOSOPHIST recently got in touch to remind us about a few of his new cuts. If you like woozy, lofi, soundtrack hip-hop and you like cats then you’re sure going to dig “The Cat King in the Year of the Plague”…

By the way, today’s show title originated with an earworm of the Bob James classic “Angela” lead to a YouTube treasure hunt starting with Bob James discussing being sampled by the hip-hop community:

And thus led to the (re)discovery of Souls of Mischief “Cab Fare”:
