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.

And on with the show…

The Show: I sold my life rights for a big check and I’m upset…

Fraserhead at the controls today, starting off with some poetry from the one and only Lana Del Rey. To be fair, if Lana Del Rey read the phone book we would play that too. Actually, does anyone still produce phone books these days? And if poetry isn’t your thing then we’ve got new cuts from CHC cats ZANE 2000, Modern Chair, Internet Death, 2XM & Jess Aspinwall, and there’s synths, beats, and a few soundscapes to round it all off..

And on with the show…
