The Show: Have a capachoochoo on us…

Bit late to the Train Guy party (as always with any meme) but do love Bob Mortimer’s uses of trains or living rooms as stages. Pretty sure it’s #capachoochoo but if you want to say #campachoochoo (but not too obnoxiously) in a public place that’s fine with us too.

The Show: Doomsday

RIP MF DOOM. 1971-2020.

Saddened to learn that MF DOOM aka Daniel Dumile, one of The Joint’s patron saints, passed away on 31 October 2020. The first quarter of the show today features some of DOOM’s highlights but it’s difficult to do justice to a lyrical genius, so follow these links for more detailed reflection…

On a more joyous and Christmassy note, ‘Barry: The Man Who Moves The Music’ was released just before Xmas in honour of Ōtautahi scene champion, RDU Wednesday Drive host and all-around living legend Andrew Barry aka A BAZ. All proceeds go to the Christchurch City Mission – Te Whare Mīhana ki Ōtautahi. Have a listen below.
