The Show: Look at those bezels.

AK DAN GWANG CHIL – Youngjeonggeori

ADG7 might create traditional minyo music from Hwanghae-do in South Korea but it has a slight feel of late 70’s / early 80’s no wave / alternative / post-punk. So, naturally, we love it.

“2 Old For This Shit” Trailer

File this under “things you never knew you wanted” – a punk rock opera based on Lethal Weapon 2, courtesy of Boyle Heights. If you desire a physical copy it’s available on VHS only. The 10 song / 14 minute package acts as a soundtrack to the band recreating their favourite scenes from the 1989 movie.

The Show: Well that’s gentrification you prick

We were going to use more of the #MAGAChallenge entries on today’s show but, quite frankly, we lost the will to live after viewing a half dozen. Better to cut back on the sneering and squeeze in more tunes. Or as a member of Consolidated’s audience put it during a live show “I reckon you should shut the fuck up and play some music”.

And if we had played more music we could have squeezed in the new Pregoblin single.

The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.

The Show: Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You…

Tried to avoid any Christmas frivolity this year but the pull towards festive nonsense was too great.

Plus, the repeated-lyric-reworking of Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” put us in mind of an equivalent deconstruction someone performed on The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” a few years ago.
