Radio Show: September 27th, 2009 // Cure found for the “Summertime Blues”

September 29, 2009

Sebastian Tellier

Eddie Cochran, were he alive today, would surely retract his assertion that there “ain’t no cure for the summertime blues” when he heard the delights that this (and many other) summers have yielded. Given the protracted periods of balmy weather this autumn has given us, Matt and Dionne decided to respond in kind by recapping this summer’s best, and reliving some from summers past. That means a little ray of Passion Pit, a bright Phoenix remix, some sun-kissed Knightlife, and of course, no summer is complete without the inevitable Yacht, Tanlines, a lovely Sunrise (courtesy of Yeasayer), some Golden Silvers and a honey-voiced, slightly-too-hairy French lothario in Speedos (Sebatian Tellier on this occasion).

So slap on some factor 30, roll out the towel and soak up the radio waves (probably keep the sweater on though; it is almost October after all).

Radio Show: September 20th 2009 // Kats playing Synths – water great show!

September 23, 2009


ack… ack.. oooh, furballs. Kats with synth and a Kinema showing. And a strange amount of water sound effects. That’s what you’ve got this week Totally Wired fans.

Furballs is the first of Brighton label Fat Cat’s showcase nights, and we look forward by playing headliners Get Back Guinozzi. Album of the week is plinkty plonkty synthpop duo Katsen with their album It Hertz. Also this week we looked back at the Source Magazine’s annual knees-up with disco-pop Hall & Oates botherers :Kinema: (punctuation theirs, not ours).

Elsewhere we played the sound of rain, the sound of the tide, a waterfall and a urinal flushing. Well, maybe not that last one. All coincidentally appeared within songs by the likes of Sebastian Tellier, Joakim, and …. well see for yourselves. Look at the playlist and listen to the show again right here:

Radio Show Playlist: September 13th 2009 // The Very Best, The Phenomenal, Dionne and Matt

September 16, 2009


We are thinking about changing our name to something like “The Utterly Flawless Two Hours of Perfection Totally Wired”, to keep in step with the current trend of self-aggrandising band names. This week, for instance, we’ve got The Very Best, whose debut album The Warm Heart of Africa came out on Monday on Moshi Moshi, and we made our Album of the Week.

Conflict arose in the studio over who got to play The Phenomenal Handclap Band. This kind of deep-rooted, bitter disaccord can only be resolved one way. By arm wrestling (are you listening Middle East?). Dionne won, but graciously surrendered the track to Matt anyway (pity is a strong weapon in the arsenal of the wimp).

Elsewhere you’ll find The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Metronomy, Falco (ahem), James Yuill, Rainbow Arabia, a neon Indian Remix of Au Revoir Simone and Kid Creole and the Coconuts. OF COURSE.

Radio Show: September 6th, 2009 // Get Serrrrrrrrrved

September 7, 2009

Kid Creole & The Coconuts

Oh ho! A week off? Well yes – Anna did her show last week, so Dionne and Matt were free to take a trip to Penrith and top up their lace  doiley (Dionne) and comemorative china teacup (Matt) collections.

Only joking! They were trawling for aural nuggets of course! The fruits of their large-opening midwater trawls filled the airwaves of Brighton on Sept 6th 2009, and now, to be relived for ever and ever, here it is on the interweb!

Among the breadcrumbed nuggets, interspersped between the fried syrupy waffles, are Kid Creole & the Coconuts, a lovely Aeroplane remix of Friendly Fires (which also features Au Revoir Simone), an older joint from Plantlife, a positively ancient cover by Al Green and the welcome return of the nation’s favorite feature, the imaginatively named Album Of The Week (complete with improvised jingle from Dionne). This week, it’s the simply super Little Dragon. Fun!

Here’s the buffet – all you can eat!
