The Show: I’ll only feel worse, till I’m riding in a hearse, and I’m gone…

Thank you Matt Kennedy of fellow 8K.NZ show UNDERGROUND AUSTRALIANA for pointing us in the direction of Adelaide’s PEAK TWINS. Sure, “So Long” came out in 2013, but we’re slow on the uptake of most things, those good things take time, and a ballad with a dreamy David Lynch Roadhouse crooning vibe is pretty timeless anyway.

And on with the show…

The Show: The mystery of Scottish sport is why we hate the English so…

Euro 2020 2021 is currently underway and preparation for today’s show coincided with the build up to the England versus Scotland match.

So much to play for! A win for Scotland would surely guarantee secession or independence. And a win for England would surely vindicate Brexiteers everywhere. Or maybe we were being unrealistic. And then we woke up Saturday morning and saw the match end in a 0-0 draw.

However, we will never pass up an excuse to rummage around in the archives and play Primal Scream, Irvine Welsh & On-U Sound’s The Big Man And The Scream Team Meet The Barmy Army Uptown.

And on with the show…

The Show: Stop thinking… let things happen… and be… the ball.

After the Xmas silliness finally a chance to catch up on the backlog as well as throw our favourite outliers into the mix. Today’s wildcard entry is courtesy of Shit and Shine who miraculously turn a Caddyshack gag into a stonking, percussive, distorted 10-minute breakbeat epic dedicated to the power of golf and centeredness.

If we ever get round to organising a yard party then we’ll be sure to get Shit and Shine to play a set. Here’s what it would look and sound like…
