The Show: Between the viaducts of your dream

Gemma Syme filling in. Says Gemma:

Isn’t Astral Weeks AMAZING? The whole album is insanely beautiful. I remember reading a Lester Bangs book and he did a huge spiel about the album, so I remember picking it up and listening to the whole thing and being blown away. Madame George is also one of my favs.

The Show: Gene Krupa – Drummin’ man

There’s a magnificent run of rhymes in the Davis song “Levert” we played today – sutures, computer, luger, Krueger, cougar, tutor, tumour and tuna amongst others – but the one that made us take notice was:

New lease on life learning drum like Gene Krupa

Nice to hear a name check for the drummin’ man.

As a special bonus you can peer behind the curtain at the inner (inane?) workings of The Joint when we forget to turn the microphones off at the 1:41:20 mark. Will these off-air comments prove to be our Rachel Smalley moment? Strain your ears to find out.

The Show: Blobs of red jelly

Thank you long time listener Michael Mickelbart for bringing to our attention the brand new Isolée single “Allowance”. It’s lovely minimal house that reminds us of the early days of The Joint. You can watch the video for “Allowance” below. Be warned – it features ghosts and blobs of red jelly. Nice to have you tuned in from the USA, Michael!

Allow us to also recommend the Delusions of Grandeur podcast hosted by Norm de Plume. Always a fantastic selection from a classy record label. Put us on to the fantastic disco sounds of Drop Out Orchestra and the new “Pathfinder” EP by Toby Tobias. Hear more goodness over at DoG’s Soundcloud page.

The Show: The British invasion continues

Following the British invasion of Auckland this week by Radiohead and Coldplay you could be forgiven for thinking that the South Island misses out once again.

Never fear because The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall hit Christchurch next week on their Diamond Jubilee World Tour. To get you in the mood here’s Cassetteboy vs The Diamond Queen. See you in the mosh pit.
