The Show: Dead white men’s notes.

Another week and another music documentary to recommend.

“Sisters With Transistors” charts the (relatively) unheralded female pioneers of electronic music. From Clara Rockmore’s mastery and development of the theremin to the earsplitting drones of Maryanne Amacher, it’s the story of women who wanted to do more than “push around dead white men’s notes”.

It only seemed right and proper to include a couple of tunes from the soundtrack in today’s playlist, to wit: Laurie Spiegel and Space Lady.

All interspersed with excerpts from Chris Addison’s recent Bugle appearance.

And on with the show…

Pale, Stale Males & Sing Speech

James, Eno, CFTPA, heck, even Charlie Brown – the pale, stale male death rattle is heard throughout today’s show (Gaz Coombes didn’t make the cut… this week).

Then there’s the sing speech / speak singing – Laurie Anderson, Tami T, Special Request, Flux and (at a very dubby push) Miss Red.

All interspersed with our favourite moments from a tournament we never wanted to watch but discovered we didn’t have the moral fibre to ignore – FIFA World Cup Russia 2018. Never mind. We promise there’s no way we’ll be watching the calendar fucking, slave labour exploitingtradition trashing, new high bar of corruption FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Honest.
