This is the first of several catch-up posts right here on totallywired.co.uk. The radio show is marching ahead of the website, so we are going to have a post-a-thon to redress the balance in favour of you lot, who come and visit us at home. Dionne succumbed to some kind of Scandinavian lurgy and was away this week, so Anna (Moulson, once-a-month TW host and Melting Vinyl proprietor) and Matt stood in, each taking the helm for an hour respectively.
Anna was naturally looking forward to the long weekend of French-themed gigs and events entitled Vive La France, and in that spirit played the super Naive New Beaters, our old pal Sebastian Tellier, Brighton-based, part-Gallic punk funkers Transformer plus… well Phoenix OBVIOUSLY.
Matt on the other hand found not just a theme, but presenting a show in any kind of coherent manner beyond his meagre abilities, and only just managed to cobble an hour of music together. In the mix there you’ll find South London eccentrics La Shark, the wonderfully confrontational These New Puritans, plus Maryland’s disco greats the Beautiful Swimmers and a whole host of others.
