The Show: 2 oz Pop, 1 oz Hip Hop, 1 splash freshly squeezed Jungle & 3-4 oz Flying Sorcerers

Today is the 50th anniversary of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s innovative invention of conspiracy theories.

 

Don’t forget to pour yourself a large Panther Piss cocktail in tribute to the disco magnificence of the brand new Shit And Shine EP.

The Piss Of A Panther

The Piss Of A Panther

Ingredients

2 oz white rum
1 oz triple sec
1 splash freshly squeezed lime juice
3 – 4 oz lemonade

Directions

Stir the rum, triple sec and lime juice together in an old-fashioned glass 3/4 filled with ice cubes. Fill with lemonade, and serve.

Inspired by that same song we’ll now continue to work on our #BigCatSounds playlist, adding both Janet Jackson’s Black Cat and Ratatat’s Wildcats as tunes that make full and excellent use of large feline growls, screams and cries.

The Show: ’79 Fever

Today’s opening (and truly mind boggling) song came courtesy of the Industrial Musicals website.

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.

The Show: Oversights, apologies and omissions

Speaking of the 1980s, would you like fries with that Andy? Video for the new Tristesse Contemporaine single “Waiting”.

The Show: Bailterspace coming home?

I quite like the new Bailterspace album “Strobosphere”. One of my favourite bands of all time. The new album brings back good memories of their Christchurch gigs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, possibly the loudest gigs I’ve ever been to.

Bailterspace have been based in NYC for many years now so I never thought I would get to see them play live ever again. Am very tempted to go see them at Laneway in Auckland but found out yesterday that they will be playing at The Dux here in Christchurch on Saturday 2 Feb!!! That’s what I call a homecoming.

Below is the video for “World We Share” from the latest album “Strobosphere”. Damn fine clanging deep sea fishing trawler rock ‘n’ roll I say.
