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.
Here we are then – I guess this is what “up to date” feels like. This is the most recent show that Dionne and Matt did, and folks, it’s another corker (so long as you understand ‘corker’ to mean ‘litany of errors’).
Dionne will never let the opportunity to play some big-voiced R&B hit, and the very sad passing of the very brave Teddy Pendergrass meant that we could tick the topical box and play (what else) Love TKO. Elsewhere there’s new newness from Dum Dum Girls (that’s them above), the new Van Halen-baiting Goldfrapp single, a Prins Thomas remix of Ali Love, a track off the mental new These New Puritans, some Joanna Newsome, and some more Van Halen references in the shape of Brooklyn-ites Coasting.
Wrap yer ears around THIS: (PS if you wonder each week why we post the show in 3 parts, its so that the load time stays low – for some reason a full length 2 hour show loads slower than tectonic plate shift – sorry!).
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:
