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.

The Show: I won’t get on my knees. Don’t make me do that please…

While researching and putting together the show this week (which involves throwing darts at music maps and scouring Bandcamp for Christchurch and Brisbane music) I stumbled across Hatchie & The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s glorious cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Sometimes Always”.

Proof indeed that the Reid brothers have an uncanny knack for writing perfect pop songs lovingly drenched in honeyed guitar tones. Sadly the pink vinyl 7-inch single has sold out but you can still have a listen below.

I seem also to have stumbled into the trap of playing TV theme tunes, but sometimes you just have to scratch that itch.
