The Show: Gimme more Star Wars, gimme open barre chords…

Driving around town yesterday listening to RNZ resulted in multiple earworms and tangled musical threads that needed dealing with. That’s the official explanation for FUN BOY THREE, BANANARAMA, ROXY MUSIC, LL COOL J and a few other cuts from the 60s, 70s and 80s making it on to the show today.

Every track on the show is a highlight, so it feels mean to play favourites, but a tip of the hat to Bill of Human Pleasure Radio for putting us on to Kiwi Jr. In a parallel universe The Cars would have signed to Flying Nun and their offspring would eventually become the house band for a shady sake bar in Toronto. You don’t even have to imagine it, here’s the video…

And on with the show…

The Show: Bar-b-que courtesy J.R.R. Tolkien Jr, George R.R. Martin

Catching up on 2019. Jeremy Deller‘s ‘Everybody in the Place, An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992’ somehow intertwining miners’ strikes, civil disobedience, and warehouse raves. Mind blown.

Also glad to see the return of Rory Ferreira aka R.A.P. Ferreira aka Milo aka Scallops Hotel. We thought he had quit the business but in reviewing 2019 discovered his newish R.A.P. Ferreira persona. Who else could rap about J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R. Martin running a barbecue??? No one. But that was possibly a rhetorical question.
