The Show: Fennoscandia

We make the faux pas so you don’t have to.

Fraserhead unreservedly apologises to Finnish band K-X-P and Finnish listeners for calling them Scandanavian in his “sneaky Scandanavian foursome” halfway through the show.

According to Wikipedia:

In English, Scandinavia usually refers to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

When a speaker wants to explicitly include Finland alongside Scandinavia-proper, the geographic terms Fenno-Scandinavia or Fennoscandia are sometimes used in English, although these terms are hardly if at all used within Scandinavia.

More precisely, and subject to no dispute, is that Finland is included in the broader term ‘Nordic countries’.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.


Happy birthday Herb Whisperer. Hope you like the BROS picture disc.

The show: Averted Vision redux

Last night we met with The Joint advisory board. It was an informal and relaxed meeting where we discussed the future of the show. In a bid to increase listener pleasure 37% per annum our board suggested that we follow the lead of the Government and the Christchurch City Council by conducting partial asset sales. This will take the form of us handing over part of the show (a maximum of 49%) to guest hosts, or investors if you will.

For that reason local duo Reach and Offset aka Reset, who also happen to be the proprietors of the Averted Vision record label, are back today for a guest mix.

The Show: Herb is overseas so Iggy drops in

The Herb Whisperer is away today.

In Melbourne. With 70,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Not with.

Near.

Behind a door.

Luckily Iggy Pop dropped in to discuss free music in a capitalist society. You can find out more about this at Mr Pop’s 2014 John Peel Lecture. The transcript is here if you want to skip to the juicy details. Food for thought.

I didn’t think the Nancy Whang / Etienne de Crecy version of “Comme Un Aigle” / “Like An Eagle” could be beat but how wrong I was. Have a peek below at the Michel Vedette version. Anyone know where we can buy silver disco shorts?

The Show: Chase the disco devil!

Apologies (again) for the slightly inferior sound quality this week. A technical glitch meant we had to resort to the back up recording of the show.

Whilst we work on those glitches we pose the question for 2014 – why is Lee “Scratch” Perry not on Twitter???
