Radio Show: October 25th, 2009 // Girls Girls Girls… who are really boys.

October 26, 2009

Girls and some girls.

We are fans of Girls here.

They are from San Francisco, and they make lovely lo-fi surf-gaze indie-pop (© 2009 Totally Wired). This week, they passed through our very own seaside hippy city at the tail end of a (apparently tiring) 5 week European tour. You can hear our interview with Chris and JR in part 2, as well as listen to a couple of choice cuts from their album, Album.

Matt had a bit of a DFA love-in, playing the newly reissued Pylon, and new tracks by Free Energy and LCD Soundsystem, plus Chromeo, Alan Vega, our interviewees next week the Wave Pictures, and and MGMT remix. Dionne was in a serious mode (albeit briefly), with a seminal and pertinent airing of a Stevie Wonder classic, plus our new tambourine-crush, The Drums. Elsewhere, you’ve also got Naomi Punk, Wavves, Atlas Sound, Simian Mobile Disco, The Dirty Projectors and Brighton dudes Bellows and Dizrali.

I’m off to other reaches of the internet where the girls aren’t guys…

Itchy Scratchy!

October 19, 2009

Itchy Scratchy night

As mentioned on this week’s show, you should get yourself along to the Westhill Hall in Brighton on Saturday night. Here’s some more info:

This Halloween Permanent presents a night of music as a satellite event to the Itchy Scratchy Picture Show. Four bands have been asked to play Itchy Scratchy sets, comprised of untypical musical styles or new directions as yet unplayed out in public. Initiator of the Itchy Scratchy Picture Show, Jason Evans, will Dj Itchy Scratchy records. Halloween dress code: Spooky itchy scratchy. Including a temporary Permanent Bookshop. The Westhill is a bring-your-own venue.

And for your convenience, here are some links to the band websites:

Satisfaction (and spooks) guaranteed!

Radio Show: October 18th 2009 // Golden Drums

October 18, 2009

The Drums

Much talk this week of The Drums, New York / Florida’s sunshine popsters. Dionne and Matt both brought tracks to play (Dionne naturally turning this happy coinkydink into a competition, insisting her choice was the “better” song – insecurity much?), and both lit up the show (both songs that is, not the presenters…). Dionne’s new favourite band (play count 185 since last Tuesday) played at Iceland Airwaves this weekend, and we were there in spirit. Check out their hyperventilating set here.

Elsewhere, there was the tingle of gold left right and centre – Fool’s Gold’s wonderful stuff (albeit diminished in Dionne’s eyes by their apparently sub-standard video), Golden Silvers bring back memories of their NME gig last week, and have you seen Julian Casabancas’ new artwork… crumbs…

And it’s afrobeat central in part 3 as we pay tribute to the king, Fela Kuti, who would have been 71 years young this week. Expect a veery long track sandwiched with new generation Nigerian Nneka and Norway’s finest adopted Nigerian offspring, CasioKids.

Anyhoo, this show was another big fun – listen here and join in! What we played is just down below.

Radio Show: October 11th 2009 // And the winner is…

October 12, 2009


Well ladies and gents, it’s award season pretty soon, and here is our submission for a Sony Gold. Dionne and Matt blazed through as much quality music as any two-hour period can reasonably sustain, and still found time to layer that yummy jam with some deliciously soft victoria sponge cakey waffles.

It was a great show this week, including an interview with Get Back Guinozzi (bottoms up), plus forthcoming singles from Vampire Weekend, Chromeo, local pop princes :Kinema: (the punctuation is important apparently), a real treat from Fools Gold, and we bear witness to Julian Casablancas discovering the synthesiser.

For those with a shopping urge, you can go right out and buy Simian Mobile Disco, Fiery Furnaces, Micachu and the loooong awaited return of Anti-Pop Consortium.

There were also a couple of classic oldies from the likes of Sylvester and Toba, just to complete the rock of ages.

So quickly, we’d like to thank our Moms, God, our agents, everyone who voted for us. It really is an honour for us to just be here…. Oh… I promised myself I wouldn’t cry… *sniff*

We are lazy, you can Podcast. That is all.

October 6, 2009

…. well not lazy exactly. Anna did her monthly show this week, so Dionne and Matt got to Hastings and look at beach-launched fishing boats and their netting arrangements (Matt) and go to the Cotswolds and hunt for lined driving gloves (Dionne).

In the meantime, we’re not going to judge you, but I know you’ve missed at least ONE of our shows, so for portability and expedience, we have started podcasting! You can find information and subscription directions for the Totally Wired Radio Show Waffleicious Podcast here.
