The Show: I’ve made a rod for my own back.

Stewart Lee decrying his own CD filing system.

Can we make a case for The Boo Radleys being filed in the Britpop shoebox, alongside such luminaries as Bennet, Jocasta and Thurman? Let’s not just limit them to Liverpool and Post-Punk / C86 / early Creation / Shoegaze. Here’s the proof – a 67% Britpop rating (courtesy of Top Trumps):

The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

The Show: Never mind the NRA. What about the GOA, the NAGR, the SAF and, of course, the JPFO?*

If, like us, you’re fed up with the NRA because they don’t go far enough in protecting the 2nd amendment rights of our Trans-Pacific cousins, then let us introduce you to the Gun Owners Of America, the National Association for Gun Rights, the Second Amendment Foundation and, our favourite, Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership (motto: “You do NOT have to be Jewish to join us!“).

Listen to those NRA socialist weasels kowtowing to authoritarian police bureaucrats in the YouTube clips we play during today’s show.

Another thing we can’t all agree on is the gender pay gap, judging by the comments on the “77” video from Alice Bag.
