The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

Don’t forget to support the sponsors of the show – Future Promotions, Innocence Back2Back Mixtapes and, of course, the Ravers Dateline (0839812752 to meet boy ravers and 0839812753 to meet girl ravers).

And on with the show…

* The inspiration for this week’s lyrical heading.

The Show: Georgia? What about Michigan, Boston, Florida, Jamaica or Jordan? Or Scunthorpe.

Welcome to our “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” YouTube wormhole, wherein the Charlie Daniel’s Band classic is re-interpreted in a variety of ways. Several are zany, one is borderline racist, one is evangelical but all of them all awful. You’re welcome.

The only reason we’re giving the K.M.C. Kru a pass is because we are suckers for that late 80’s early 90’s hip hop vibe.
