Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and it stabs me.

Wow. Those keytars just keep turning up. After getting a few Goldie Lookin Chain earworms recently I endeavoured to track down the source samples for their hits “Your Mother’s Got a Penis” and “Soapbar.” For that tenuous reason Greg Phillinganes and ‘Sweet’ Charles Sherrell appeared in the mix this week.

The Show: The weird and wonderful world of…

A quick round up…

The NWA movie “Straight Outta Compton” hits the big screen in the next week but if you don’t have $17 to spare for a movie ticket or are too busy to spend 147 minutes sitting in a cinema get the gist with the EXPLICIT CONTENT ONLY version of the classic album.

Lord Echo at the Christchurch Arts Festival tonight! Be bloody aware of large freaking eels though. If you’re on epic acid you’re not imagining it. That’s the power of art.
