The Show: Cover letters

The Joint has always maintained that if you’re going to cover a song, do it properly. Give the original a good aural kicking down a back alley and ignore any accusations of a lack of respect towards the original material.

We said it in the letters pages of Smash Hits* when Paul Young covered “Love Will Tear Us Apart” in 1983 and we’re saying it again today as we playlist Brian Case’s radical re-working of Elvis Costello / Robert Wyatt’s “Shipbuilding

The Show: Fennoscandia

We make the faux pas so you don’t have to.

Fraserhead unreservedly apologises to Finnish band K-X-P and Finnish listeners for calling them Scandanavian in his “sneaky Scandanavian foursome” halfway through the show.

According to Wikipedia:

In English, Scandinavia usually refers to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

When a speaker wants to explicitly include Finland alongside Scandinavia-proper, the geographic terms Fenno-Scandinavia or Fennoscandia are sometimes used in English, although these terms are hardly if at all used within Scandinavia.

More precisely, and subject to no dispute, is that Finland is included in the broader term ‘Nordic countries’.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.


Happy birthday Herb Whisperer. Hope you like the BROS picture disc.

The Show: Chase the disco devil!

Apologies (again) for the slightly inferior sound quality this week. A technical glitch meant we had to resort to the back up recording of the show.

Whilst we work on those glitches we pose the question for 2014 – why is Lee “Scratch” Perry not on Twitter???
