The Show: Over 40 Years Of Sleng Teng

And it only seems like yesterday we were busting out our Casiotone’s and aping Wayne Smith’s 1985 classic. The hard work had pretty much been done 3 or 4 years earlier when one of Okuda Hiroko’s preset rhythm patterns ( called “Rock”, would you believe?) was included on the MT-40 keyboard.

For an oral history of Sleng Teng have a listen to The Blessed Madonna on BBC Radio 6 and we salute the rhythm by including Shinehead’s “Know How Fe Chat” on today’s show…

The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…

The Show: “Must we fling this filth at our pop kids?”

The Sunday People asked that question of the NME in 1973 and we’re asking the same question of ourselves in 2017.

And the answer is yes. Yes, we must fling this filth at our pop kids.

So thank you to Sexit, cupcakKe and Sälen for some particularly filthy flinging.
