The Show: Without music you are all dead.

R.I.P. Lee Scratch Perry

Summer is just around the corner, so what better soundtrack could there be for a weekend of warm sunshine than Scotch Rolex, The Bug, MC Kano and, of course, Benefits?

And on with the show…

The Show: It all means the same, down the line

Winter hibernation doesn’t seem to have dented or affected musical productivity in Ōtautahi Christchurch. In these darkest and coldest of months the releases keep coming.

Looking forward to the new KOOL AID (the artists formerly known as Brian Tamaki and The Kool Aid Kids) Family Portrait EP. Lovely video too for ‘Family Portrait Revisited’, ironically a good summer day out in this Antipodean Gothic paradise.

And not forgetting these Christchurch cats, to name just a few who appear on the show today…

NECRUM SELECT


GETSET


CARAMEL SMOOTH HEAVEN & JESS ASPINWALL

The Show: Joy From The World

One of those shows where, by sheer chance, every corner of the world seems to be represented (the glaring exception being our own back yard).

So thanks to the Republic of Ireland, Mali, UK, US, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Argentina, Vietnam, Trinidad, Japan & France for the music in today’s show.

We’ll make amends on the local muisc shortfall in a special end of year show. If you can’t wait that long our 8k colleagues Cock Block & Tit Bit have put together a ClamJam Best NZ 2017 mix.
