As well as an online archive, with audio snippets from a variety of these musicals from the 50’s to the 80’s, there’s also a book “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” which is making a strong early bid to be The Joint’s Christmas stocking filler.
For more information have a listen to an interview the authors gave to NPR, complete with recollections from a veteran of many of these productions, and have a look below at a brief appearance one of them made on the David Letterman Show.
Like Ebony Bones, The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour.
As we mention towards the end of the show, we did encounter some problems with the recording for the podcast. We’ve had to resort to using our uncompressed back up option. The songs still sound pretty good though…
…but Fraserhead prefers to think of it as giving the music some room and letting it breathe. WTF? That’s right, The Herb Whisperer is away today so Fraserhead is flying solo. Expect sparse voice breaks, minimal mixing, lots of triple plays, and maybe some Kenny Loggins.
Huge thanks to regular listener Greg Dodds for tipping us off about TRAAMS. Could happily leave this on repeat for the w-h-o-l-e show. But won’t. Have a listen below though…
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
