No wrinkles. No crinkles. No seams that show.

We are seriously thinking of starting a “This is going straight to the poolroom” segment for the show. Straight in at number one is this gem of an ad from 1976…

Fraserhead on duty today, starting off with a sneaky threesome off the new Soulwax album “From Deewee”, there’s some dark synth action from ÉLAN VITAL and PILOOSKI, we delve into soothing, thudding techno from JASSS, LIZA AIKIN, and HØF, plus beats and atmospherics galore from $HIT and $HINE, SKYMNING, BAILTER SPACE, AUDIOPHYSICAL, JOE JACKSON, and MR AMISH, to name but a few.

The Show: Right-winging, bitter-clinging, proud clingers

OMG. Coco Solid and Disasteradio stole Ladyhawke’s convertible and went on an electropop bender!!!

It’s funny. When we meet our listeners in person the dreaded “How do you prepare for the show?” question* usually arises. In the interests of transparency this Emmanuelle video is a pretty accurate representation of our pre-show rituals…

* It’s not really a dreaded question.

The show: Old acquaintances and new friends

As promised, today we played tracks from some old acquaintances such as …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (didn’t realise they’d been around since 1993! but they were one of the first bands we played on The Joint when we started the show way back in 2001), Fujiya & Miyagi, and Destroyer. But even I wasn’t expecting The Herb Whisperer to play Wang Chung / Huang Chung!!!

We weren’t kidding about Rastamouse either.
