Lady Tulip aka Tulip Black, turning things upside down just like Diana Ross.
Her last appearance on The Joint was back in 2009 and today is the return of Lady Tulip. She’s not too pleased either after missing out on tickets to Beyoncé’s three Auckland gigs in October which means she will be playing the darkest, scariest R&B that she can find. Hold tight.
This week musical distraction has come in the form of Shallow Rewards’ pop commentary videos – one man’s musical musings. There are 25 episodes so far and, although we don’t condone or agree with all the sentiments expressed in these clips (House Of Love only worth one half-assed single?), they make a great starting point for a throwdown between music nerds vigorous debate about the history of late 20th century popular music.

ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
