The Show: I’ll be eating breakfast in the evening, as the world crumbles in May…

More sneaky threesomes on the show today, this time round plundering new albums from LES BAXTERS and PICKLE DARLING.

And we do love our synth-pop. So how could we resist MANIFEST KITSUNE‘s “catchy, creepy Lovecraft inspired synthwave live electronic anthem for the surreal year of 2021”? Hint: we couldn’t.

And on with the show…

The Show: Try, try, try. Just you try…

A few sneaky threesomes on the show today from Blair Parkes and The Big Fresh Collective. (This is our usual tactic when we find it far too difficult to narrow the choice down to a single track from a new album)…

New Brighton’s finest, Blair Parkes is back with his latest album “new building”, featuring Ryan Fisherman, Miss Mercury and Marcus Thomas. Perfect jangly pop music.

Liam K Swiggs has also been busy over in Redwood. FOOTMAHI 2021 is the latest project out of The Big Fresh Collective. 160bpm madness crafted by producers born or currently residing in Aoteroa New Zealand, from the dirty south all the way up to Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland.

The Show: 1971 was a good year

1971. Fifty whole years ago.

A good year for The Arsenal (winning the coveted Football League First Division and FA Cup double).

A good year for music (with albums from the likes of Can, Carly Simon, Harry Nilsson, Serge Gainsbourg, Captain Beeheart, The Carpenters and many others).

And the year Fraserhead was born.

Saying that, sadly no music from 1971 in the mix today (Harry Nilsson a few weeks back was it), but there’s a token effort with some found footage of The Arsenal’s double winning season (apologies to Spurs and Liverpool fans), and then there’s the usual cryptic blend of beats and noises.

And on with the show…
