The Show: Pearly Qdrops Drops

We admit that the pun for this week’s show title came first and we then frantically tried to base a playlist around it. Very much a cart-before-the-horse scenario.

It proved to be a good excuse for our biennial trawl through the Cocteau Twins back catalogue, cover versions and all. This included finding a surprising take on “Wax & Wane” by Deftones, which narrowly failed to make the cut in today’s set.

The QAnon portion of the pun is provided by an interview from the All Gas No Brakes YouTube channel (imagine a Louis Theroux documentary put through a Tim & Eric filter).

The remainder of the spoken word clips are taken from On The Media’s “Spheres Of Influence” which takes a dive into “conspirituality” and the rise of pastel QAnon.

And on with the show…

Black Estate Sessions Volume 2

We’re taking a break this weekend which means no show on RDU today.

Just in case you were desperate for a hit of The Joint here’s a recording of the live set we played at Black Estate’sDumpling, Wine & Records” night last month.

The audio quality is a little scratchy in places. As the evening wore on the faders were pushed higher and the needle was bouncing in the red. You know how noisy and raucous these vineyard events can get, especially when you break out the Wham vinyl.
