The Joint: First to put a bike rack on the Rolls…

Tyler, The Creator. He likes his classic cars. He likes his speedboats. He likes his bicycles. And apparently he likes attaching bike racks to Rolls Royces.

The musical remembrances of Camera Obscura and Cocteau Twins on the show today were from comedian Alan Davies’ new podcast Seven Pillars with Alan Davies and his chat with former footballer Pat Nevin.

And on with the show…

The Show: Flickering, flickering, flickering…

“Hey pretty baby it’s been a while, haven’t seen your lovely face for a long time”

Yes, it’s been a long time Maria Minerva and it’s good to have you back. The new album Soft Power is out 18 September on 100% Silk, and until then we’ve got “Wake Up In NYC” on repeat…

Not to play favourites or anything but our 8K compatriot Dik Detonic (aka New Ways 2 Noise) is celebrating his solitary confinement in Melbourne by getting S:Bahn back together. “Sync or Swim” is out now and the album “Queen Of Diamonds” is due for release very soon on Polaks Records. “Another month of fucking Sundays” indeed.

The Show: And I done it in Europe like George Graham…

Yip, it’s the novelty hit of the summer, Reece West et al getting grimy on Arsène Wenger. Accidentally redressing the balance because THE HERB WHISPERER very recently revealed he’s been playing trap on the show if Paul Pogba’s been appearing in the related videos. Can’t argue with that logic to be honest.

DISCLAIMER: Playing this track is in no way an endorsement of ArsenalFanTV.
