The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

This is not a Christmas special.

It’s definitely NOT a Christmas special but we do start proceedings with THE FALL’S peerless version of JINGLE BELL ROCK. If you can handle that opening salvo you’ll be rewarded with many seasonal gifts such as a sneaky threesome from Otāutahi Christchurch label Club Unique, some dark synths from Distant Stars, beautiful Parisian electro pop via Il Est Vilaine plus too many others to name.

The Show: Stop thinking… let things happen… and be… the ball.

After the Xmas silliness finally a chance to catch up on the backlog as well as throw our favourite outliers into the mix. Today’s wildcard entry is courtesy of Shit and Shine who miraculously turn a Caddyshack gag into a stonking, percussive, distorted 10-minute breakbeat epic dedicated to the power of golf and centeredness.

If we ever get round to organising a yard party then we’ll be sure to get Shit and Shine to play a set. Here’s what it would look and sound like…
