The Show: Dead white men’s notes.

Another week and another music documentary to recommend.

“Sisters With Transistors” charts the (relatively) unheralded female pioneers of electronic music. From Clara Rockmore’s mastery and development of the theremin to the earsplitting drones of Maryanne Amacher, it’s the story of women who wanted to do more than “push around dead white men’s notes”.

It only seemed right and proper to include a couple of tunes from the soundtrack in today’s playlist, to wit: Laurie Spiegel and Space Lady.

All interspersed with excerpts from Chris Addison’s recent Bugle appearance.

And on with the show…

The Show: Bloody Anglo-Saxons. Coming over here.

We’d love to be able to present you with a video of the Stewart Lee bit that was sampled on today’s last song courtesy of Asian Dub Foundation.

But we can’t.

The best we can manage is a slightly (deliberately?) wonky clip on  Daily Motion. So you’ll just have to close your eyes for four minutes whilst the picture is frozen but the audio keeps rolling.

On the other hand we do have the official video for the tune

And on with the show…

The Show: Are you the goddamn Coronavirus?

This week’s show was put together quickly, incorporating large chunks of Conan O’Brien’s Self-Quarantine podcast (featuring Andy Daly) and huge swathes of the 2020 BBC Radio 6 Music Festival.

However, the time we saved was put to good use. We managed to get in 8 – 10 solid hours of worrying about the future of the world. Job done.

And on with the show…
