THE JOINT

The Herb Whisperer and Fraserhead go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.

The Show: I’ll stare directly at the sun, but never in the mirror

18.11.2022

Rest in peace Keith Levene. We celebrate his memory with a couple of live versions of PILs “Poptones”.

One aural, recorded in Paris in 1980 (today’s lucky last track). One visual, from American Bandstand later that same year. The latter must surely be one of the oddest performances ever to grace US network television.

Even before the news of his passing reached us the playlist already had a post-punk flavour from the old (Killing Joke, Kitchen & The Spoons) to the new (Iceage, Spooner).

Low_at_Saturn,_Birmingham,_Alabama,_2022-03-25,_Mimi_Red

Rest in peace Mimi Parker. Hard to pick one track to celebrate her voice, percussion and songwriting. Instead, one track from each of Low’s albums so that we slow down time and immerse ourselves in beautiful and unsettling dreams.

The Guardian: Low’s Mimi Parker was a voice of hope and healing in indie rock
