Radio Show: June 20th, 2010 // Special guest alert (Ketil from CasioKids!) ft. Magic Kids, Familjen, Happy Birthday, a-ha (!) and PRINCE!!! (plus interview with Silje Nes!)

June 23, 2010

Matt ditches Dionne for a DJ gig so Ketil from Casiokids steps nobly into Barker’s steely hi tops. Music is delivered with a side of Scandinavia including Jónsi, Korallreven, Familjen, The New Wine, a-ha (!) plus an interview with locally signed Nordic experimentalist Silje Nes. Pepper that with some Moshi Moshi siblings and add a spot of Tennis and you have yourself a jolly day out!

Oh and in anticipation of His Majesties impending festival appearances, we take this opportunity to pledge our allegiance to Prince in the form of 12” extended version of the GREATEST SONG OF ALL TIME.

Thank you.

Holy Vessels

Toot toot! Here we are – chasing our tails trying to catch up. We’re getting there. This is a show that we did back in early May (pre-recorded on election day no less!) in which we played lots of bands appearing at the Great Escape Festival, the UK’s answer to SxSW that happens every year right here in sunny ol’ Brighton.

So in this show you can hear bands like Brighton’s very own favorite sons, Holy Vessels and Lyrebirds, plus Tony Allen (who played the Great Escape with Sean Kuti!!!), Chapel Club, Our pal Darwin Deez (who we got to interview over the weekend – look out for it soon) These New Puritans, and the very welcome return of Phoenix (who didn’t play The Great Escape – sadface).

So anyway, check out the show riiiight heeeere:

minmi on Totally Wired

Hey hey! Look at the state of us eh? All dishevelled and woefully late. Well, you know what to expect by now I guess. So our shows have been going out on the radio (Juice 107.2 FM, every Sunday night in Brighton, UK), and also so they tell us on Totally Radio (how does that work btw? Magic I suppose), but we’ve been seriously neglecting you, our loyal interweb chums! (And by the way, if you think you’ve been neglected, spare a thought for our wonderful PodCast buddies. They’re all parched and wan – starved of the wafflacious nonsense that Totally Wired brims with every week. Sadface.

So this time around, we knocked out some peachy new tunes for you – you’ve got Japanese Soca queen Minmi (yes I did write that correctly – Japanese Soca queen), new DFA bods Black Van, the Record Store Day tunes from Hot Chip and Blur, a golden panda in the form of Gold Panda, plus lots of other wonderous fresh cakes – see the playlist below for the full infos, and listen to the show in full by giving that button a little click:
