The Show: The mystery of Scottish sport is why we hate the English so…

Euro 2020 2021 is currently underway and preparation for today’s show coincided with the build up to the England versus Scotland match.

So much to play for! A win for Scotland would surely guarantee secession or independence. And a win for England would surely vindicate Brexiteers everywhere. Or maybe we were being unrealistic. And then we woke up Saturday morning and saw the match end in a 0-0 draw.

However, we will never pass up an excuse to rummage around in the archives and play Primal Scream, Irvine Welsh & On-U Sound’s The Big Man And The Scream Team Meet The Barmy Army Uptown.

And on with the show…

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.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 1

black-estate-playlist-20150418The Joint likes to dream of DJ’ing with the greats at crucial moments in pop history. Larry Levan in 70’s NYC. Don Letts‘ punky reggae party at The Roxy. DJ Alfredo at Amnesia on Ibiza in the late eighties.

But at our age when we play out it’s not exactly 20,000 people mashed up in field. More like several dozen punters dining at a vineyard. Less “Sorted For E’s & Whizz“. More “Little Old Wine Drinker Me“. Which is exactly why we were invited to play records at the Black Estate Tasting Room & Eatery last Saturday afternoon.

Many thanks to all for making us feel very welcome and a special mention to Waipara DJ Sylvia for helping out. When we ran out of vinyl after 4 hours she filled in with her Lorde LP. Unfortunately we’d stopped recording the set at this point so it was very much a case of you had to be there. Which means in future years, just like with Levan, Letts and Alfredo, thousands will claim they were.

The Joint. Keeping it real(ly mellow).
