The Show: British Masters

We’ve spent the last few weeks binge watching Noisey’s British Masters series, hosted by John Doran.

If these interviews intrigue you (and they intrigued us enough to include some highlights in today’s show) head over to The Quietus where you can find more of Mr Doran’s work.

The show: Reduce me, seduce me, dress me up in Stüssy*

secrets - Hell is round the corner

secrets - Hell is round the corner

1995 seems like such a long time ago.

That’s when Tricky released his debut album “Maxinquaye“. At the time it was released it was a dark, brooding, decaying and paranoid affair. I listened to it the other day and it has aged quite well.

The closest I have ever heard anyone get to its moodiness are the M.I.A., Burial, and Kode9 albums. Tricky is also the only artist I have ever heard cover a Public Enemy song (“Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos”) and match it (and arguably surpass it).

In a way, Tricky seems like an impossible artist to cover.

But you’d be wrong. I was.

The other day I was lurking around bandcamp.com and noticed that secrets aka Fraser Austin had done a cover version of “Hell is Round the Corner”. Damn well shat myself when I discovered that it was true in spirit to the original. Must be something about the Christchurch winter that lends itself to paranoia. Or secrets is taking lots of cough syrup at the moment.

*ERRATUM: Curses. As ever I got the lyric wrong. Instead of “Seduce me, seduce me…” it should have been “Reduce me, seduce me…”. THX Hairdresser on Fire for inadvertently alerting me to my error.

Alternatively, this is the raw, unpasteurized version of the show in mp3 format. No chapters, pictures or links. Slightly less quality. Otherwise the audio content is the same as the two files above. The choice is yours…..

Technical difficulties also meant the first song on today’s show is missing from the podcast.
