The Show: The Lebensraum of popular music

If you enjoyed the opening to today’s show – and who wouldn’t like Whitney Houston’s music being described as tyrannical and capable of crushing every tune in your record collection – the full exchange between Edward George and John Doran is available as a podcast via The Quietus. It is for subscribers only but this one interview is well worth the price of admission.

Meanwhile, battle lines have been drawn within the greater Joint family over the best version of Harry Styles’ “As It Was” – the original, the Arcade Fire cover or Harry performing the tune live at Coachella. Listen to all 3 in the epilogue or watch them below.

And on with the show…

The Show: The One with Kajagoogoo

One Gen X’er’s piece of throwaway 80’s pop crap is another Gen Z’er’s twenty-twenties vaporwave classic – or so it would seem.

We were forced to re-evaluate and, yes, appreciate Kajagoogoo’s “Hang On Now” after the song featured in Sofie’s recent Bleep mix.

Sofie herself appears in today’s show along with a brand new track from John Carpenter, which seems a good reason as any to post a video of The Thing remade with the cast of Pingu.

And on with the show…
