We do like a good prank call. But if a phone isn’t available, email can be just as good. On Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast BROKEN RECORD, Dave Hill recounts the time he posed as 19 year old ‘Lance’ from Gary, Indiana – founder of the world’s darkest metal band of all time – WITCH TAINT. Through an ongoing email conversation ‘Lance’ engages the legendary Saiitham of the Norwegian Black Metal community in witty passive-aggressive banter. It resulted in ‘Lance’ having to form said Witch Taint. Life imitates art.
Doing things back to front today and starting with the (so called) slow burners and then finishing with the (so called) bangers. A bit of catching up from releases that escaped the attention from earlier this year plus a lot of new stuff from the likes of Camilla Sparksss, Mad Frank, Mmdelai, Sabiwa, MISS RED, Kambo Super Sound System, pickle darling, DOG Power, and Sandro Perri. Also, a sneaky plundering of the Whities back catalogue.
“We’re not cutting edge… we’re the clean up crew.”
That’s Fraserhead’s description of the show on-air today. It’s true. We’re the last to arrive at musical crime scenes, handling the hazardous tunes other shows have left (way) behind. RDU’s very own Sunshine Cleaning team.
No time for a cone of silence today but RIP Chris Kelly aka Mac Daddy.
This is a heavily edited show – we had to cut out chunks of audio because of a dodgy microphone and, more impressively, interference caused by the transmitter overheating in the blazing Canterbury sun. Global warming my arse.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
