The Show: Flickering, flickering, flickering…

“Hey pretty baby it’s been a while, haven’t seen your lovely face for a long time”

Yes, it’s been a long time Maria Minerva and it’s good to have you back. The new album Soft Power is out 18 September on 100% Silk, and until then we’ve got “Wake Up In NYC” on repeat…

Not to play favourites or anything but our 8K compatriot Dik Detonic (aka New Ways 2 Noise) is celebrating his solitary confinement in Melbourne by getting S:Bahn back together. “Sync or Swim” is out now and the album “Queen Of Diamonds” is due for release very soon on Polaks Records. “Another month of fucking Sundays” indeed.

And on with the show…
