The Show: We’re living through strange days…

For today’s show we egregiously plundered bits and pieces from the new Adam Curtis documentary series “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”. Thoroughly recommended for a bit of self-induced discombobulation.

Excited by upcoming new album “Cosmonaut” by PICKLE DARLING, which is out 21 May 2021. To keep you going in the meantime treat yourself to Bigness (Instrumentals)

Plus – and we are several seasons late to it – not forgetting the TIGA podcast First/Last Party On Earth. Rave classics today inspired by Tiga’s recently conversation with the one and only TREVOR JACKSON.

And on with the show…

* The inspiration for this week’s lyrical heading.

Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and it stabs me.

Wow. Those keytars just keep turning up. After getting a few Goldie Lookin Chain earworms recently I endeavoured to track down the source samples for their hits “Your Mother’s Got a Penis” and “Soapbar.” For that tenuous reason Greg Phillinganes and ‘Sweet’ Charles Sherrell appeared in the mix this week.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 2

We’re taking a break this weekend which means no show on RDU today.

Just in case you were desperate for a hit of The Joint here’s a recording of the live set we played at Black Estate’sDumpling, Wine & Records” night last month.

The audio quality is a little scratchy in places. As the evening wore on the faders were pushed higher and the needle was bouncing in the red. You know how noisy and raucous these vineyard events can get, especially when you break out the Wham vinyl.

And here’s the playlist in full…
