The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

And on with the show…

“We’re not cutting edge… we’re the clean up crew.”

That’s Fraserhead’s description of the show on-air today. It’s true. We’re the last to arrive at musical crime scenes, handling the hazardous tunes other shows have left (way) behind. RDU’s very own Sunshine Cleaning team.

No time for a cone of silence today but RIP Chris Kelly aka Mac Daddy.

The Show: Oddball UK Hip Hop

Strange U has a new EP out on Eglo Records consisting of weird, murky, grainy hip hop.

How weird? Well the record label describes it as “rap music never sounding so orthopaedic” and that Strange U are ” invoking the spirts of Oshun, Vishnu, Apollo, Sobek and Jim Henson” in order to “crush Duran Duran rapper with a Dr Claw beer mit”.

For some reason this all makes us hark back to the Infinite Livez’ “Bush Meat”  album from 2004. So to enable you to compare and contrast here are Strange U’s “Klaatu Barada Nikto” and Infinite Livez’ “The Adventures Of The Lactating Man”

(actually it is mainly contrast)

The Show: Really fucking edgy

If you have the fascination / stomach to watch the original Signal 30 short, as described in today’s show, head on over to The Internet Archive.

Otherwise you can make do with the first official video from Public Service Broadcasting, wherein they sample some of the audio and images from the legendary 1959 snuff movie driving safety film.

The Show: Rich / Hoe?

Is it time for a collaboration between Die Antwoord‘s Yo-Landi Vi$$er and Nicki Minaj? We certainly think so. The closest we’ll probably get is by playing them back to back on the show today but one can live in hope. Best costumes ever.

Die Antwoord “Rich Bitch”

Nicki Minaj “Stupid Hoe”
