The Show: 1971 was a good year

1971. Fifty whole years ago.

A good year for The Arsenal (winning the coveted Football League First Division and FA Cup double).

A good year for music (with albums from the likes of Can, Carly Simon, Harry Nilsson, Serge Gainsbourg, Captain Beeheart, The Carpenters and many others).

And the year Fraserhead was born.

Saying that, sadly no music from 1971 in the mix today (Harry Nilsson a few weeks back was it), but there’s a token effort with some found footage of The Arsenal’s double winning season (apologies to Spurs and Liverpool fans), and then there’s the usual cryptic blend of beats and noises.

And on with the show…

The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

The Show: There’s no school like the old school and Dizzee & Wiley are the fucking Headmasters

Apologies. We had an uninformed dig at Sasha Frere-Jones‘ Destiny Child’s “Bug-A-B00” remix saying that he was over 10 years late to the whole early 2000s bootleg craze. Upon closer inspection (eg reading the fineprint on his Soundcloud) his remix was done back in 2003.

Double apologies. No decent recording of yesterday’s show, so no podcast.
