The Show: What’s the point of your existence, if you don’t want to make a difference?

Fraserhead’s track of the week is JOHN PAUL‘s “Glenn” from the new album “Subjects”. A shuffling beat, a sneaky trumpet, and sharp lyrics a la “The Maltese Falcon’s a nativity play”. What’s not to love??? Nihilism has never been so cheerful. Pure gold. Tip of the hat to the one and only Bill from HUMAN PLEASURE RADIO for putting us on to it :)

And on with the show…

The Show: It all means the same, down the line

Winter hibernation doesn’t seem to have dented or affected musical productivity in Ōtautahi Christchurch. In these darkest and coldest of months the releases keep coming.

Looking forward to the new KOOL AID (the artists formerly known as Brian Tamaki and The Kool Aid Kids) Family Portrait EP. Lovely video too for ‘Family Portrait Revisited’, ironically a good summer day out in this Antipodean Gothic paradise.

And not forgetting these Christchurch cats, to name just a few who appear on the show today…

The Show: Sit down politely, do it like Nike…

Good friend of The Joint Blair Parkes has been busy as ever in his shed studio down in New Brighton and he’s got a new album ‘liveable city’ out now on Bandcamp. Dreamy, fuzzy, trippy and hazy. Just how we like our pop. Video above for the single ‘habit to break’.

A track from Motorbass kicks off the show today in memory of French producer extraordinaire Philippe “Zdar” Cerboneschi (Motorbass, La Funk Mob, and Cassius). And then we delve into a werewolf exploitation horror movie soundtrack from 1971 before weaving our way through our usual left-field and eclectic selections of pop, noise, beats and off-kilter techno.

The Show: Too hot to sing, too hot to think…

Doing things back to front today and starting with the (so called) slow burners and then finishing with the (so called) bangers.
