Tonights Show 14th July 2008 with Cult Hero, Alex Gopher, SMD, Palace of Pleasure...
This Mondays Show: The show is for Leeney as she is leaving us for a while to go and chill with Buddhist nuns for three months.
We have Cult Hero (Robert Smith, his bassist and a postman), Palace of Pleasure, Pravda23, Kliktrak, Grinderman etc....
1st Hour of Show
Cult Hero – I’m a cult hero
Robert Smith didn't like his original bassist (Michael Dempsey) much, he met a new bassist (Simon Gallup), to see if they could work well together, he formed a band with their postman, Frank Bell. They called it Cult Hero, Simon Gallup was hired and a postman had some fun and minor celebrity with a future anti-hero... lovely
The Kills – what new york used to be
Cool track from there most recent offering Midnight Boom
Material – don’t lose control (dance version)
Mr Bill Laswell and fiends with this slice of leftfield dance from the 80's, damn fine. Bill Laswell is an amazing bassist and he is still doing groundbreaking music today... find him, love him
Simian – Sunshine
Simian were a fourpiece, they bought out two albums, then they split... this is from the second album We Are Your Friends....
Simian Mobile Disco - Clock
They split and two of the members namely James Ellis Ford and James Anthony Shaw formed SMD and we are thankful for that, freaking awesome!!
Palace of Pleasure – Another Deal
Norwegian electronica kings with the title track from their new album out in September, This lends itself to a youth spent in ones bedroom listening to Gene Loves Jezebel and Echo and the Bunnymen Heaven up Here and taking many notes
Depeche Mode – The Darkest Star
What would a show of mine be without the MODE!!! This is the last track on the Playing the Angel album, I am still waiting to be dissapointed by a DM album..
Cabaret Voltaire – Sensoria (Bloody Beetroots vs Sir Billy Experience RMX)
The Cab's classic reworked and electrofied stupendously by them Blood Beetroots and the Sir Billy Experience, it hasn't left my car CD player for 4 days:)
MtKidU – Nudark
Jozi's finest leftfield thinking mans Electronica, check them out and give them some love
Kliktrak - Electrospheric (Edit 11)
Durbans finest electro tekno twiddler with another reason why i am a committed fan, you should be too
Pravda 23 – Forgetfulness Pravda23
Cape Towns Pravda23 with an unforgettable track, got this from Electrotrash's fine collection of free MP3's of our local talent, proving we have what it takes to take on the world stage
Noise Floor Crew vs Portishead – Machine Gun (RMX)
The new album has many brilliant tracks, this one is probably my favourite at the moment, the remix is astounding
2nd Hour of Show
The Cure – In Your House
This is the title track of The Cure's second album, a radical departure from the first album Three Imaginary Boys and a blueprint for their carreer to come, the album also has one of my all time favourite tracks A Forest
Cult Hero – I Dig You
Galluping Bob and his postman digging you
Grinderman – No Pussy Blues
Lord Nick complaing about something that he has never experienced, still great, the man is a genius, I love the fact that he is calling all the shots on his carreer and constantly reinventing himself, who knew that he played guitar so well, the only other time I can remember him playing guitar on any track was for The Girl At The Bottom Of My Glass which is the b-side of Oh Deanna
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Night of the Lotus Eaters
The great man from his great new album Dig, Lazarus Dig!, as with the Mode, I am STILL awaiting a bad Nick Cave album (I know some of you may think that Nocturama wasn't great, but I think its not one of his best but still streets ahead of most music out there)
NYPC – The Bomb (Dirty Disco Youths Maximal Bomb Remix)
Storming remix of a storming song by a storming band----- a lot of storming going on here
Siriusmo – Mein menu fahrrad (boys noise edit)
Mr Ridha doing what he does best, making Siriusmo sound even better than they allready did,
Yazoo – Don’t Go (Electro 2008 Rmx)
This is to celebrate the fact that this great band and slice of Electro Pop genius have reformed, they broke up after You and Me Both and never toured with the album, so it will be the first time these tracks are played live:)
Etienne de Crecy - Funk (Bloody Beetroots Rmx (video for Funk))
The French former member of Orange being his funky acid electro best, reinvented by them naughty Beetroots.
Alex Gopher – Aurora (Riot in Belgium & Knightlife Rmx)
Another member of Orange, with another fantastic track remixed beautifuly. The other two member of Orange are now called Air, that is like a supergroup of Electronica creativity and madness, brilliant
Late of the Pier – Heartbeat
Fast becoming the band to watch on the UK festival scene, this is from their up and coming album called Fantasy Black Channel. Very Numanesque which is high praise indeed
Pop Levi – Oh God, (What Can I Do?)
This makes me think of T-Rex at their pompous and swashbuckling best. The former Ladytron bassist is also one to watch.
Metallica – Master of Puppets (Old School Reunion Rmx)
A classic Metallica track given the shredded electro treatment by the Old School Reunion, this came third in a Metallica remix competition, I would have given it first place
Shriekback – My Spine is the Bassline (12” Mix)
Leftfield 80's dance heaven from Shriekback, makes me remember the Junction and Decodance with misty eyes....
Foetus - Mandelay
Mr Thirlwell, a complete nutter, gotta love it
Monday Nights 11pm till 1am Johannesburg Time, Channel 169 Audio Bouquet also 1485AM Radio (Johannesburg Only)
