The show: Remembrance of things past

Seems we’re playing some real throwbacks today. And bands that want to sound like throwbacks (looking at you Giuda and Eternal Tapestry). Which is a good thing if it means that sifty psychedelia and Krautrock is making a welcome resurgence (not that it’s ever really gone away).

If you want a really good sifty psychedelic time then be sure to have a peep below at Shacklock Meth Party‘s dirty video for “This Is My Shit, Gwen”.

And here’s the playlist in full…

The Show: “Gorgeous” George Galloway vs Bill “No Spin Zone” O’Reilly. And the return of The Nicol Brothers.

Tunisian / Palestinian combo Checkpoint 303 have a brand new track out, “Needle Stuck On Lebanon“, which makes good use of news broadcast samples from around the world.

Not only should we thank them for letting us know the song is available as a free download from their website, we are also eternally grateful that they sent us this link to a George Galloway interview that appeared on Sky News UK recently. It’s not a spectacle for the fainthearted, as the Respect MP tears strips off the hapless journalist to the point where he comes across as a misogynistic bully.

We can’t imagine Rupert Murdoch was amused and it certainly wouldn’t have gone to air on Rupert’s other news channel, Fox. Unless George went up against Bill O’Reilly. That really would be a heavyweight challenge. So much so that it could be made the equivalent of a pay-per-view prizefight. We’re willing to cough up a few bucks to watch so let’s start lobbying for it now.

And thank you to The Nicol Brothers aka Offset and Hank for dropping in today to lay down a few drum’n’bass sets. Cheers fellas.
