SESSION 51: At Home With Rose

* who remembers Gumby?

Almost crooners


Almost wasn't doing a show tonight - hence the late playlist. But last minute change of plans. So here we go - all these songs (to me) have some kind of crooning aspect - even the ones with no voice. David Sylvian and Roxy Music are pretty obvious.

Lazy playlist for people who are running it close to the wire!

SESSION 50: At Home With Rose

Lovely low-fi


Bloody hell! Fifty shows under my belt! Pretty damned pleased about that, yessiree.

This week's theme became apparent after choosing my first 3 songs. Seems I have low-fi on my mind. And back to some good New Zealand music which is fitting cos that's where this radio show began. Mixed in are a few songs from the rest of the world, but the core is most definitely Noo Zild.

Note all the great NZ labels. Yes, we have some wonderful musicians in this country, but don't forget about the hard work done by the people that run the labels to get the music out there so you can listen to it. Amongst tonight's labels:

Pseudo Arcana
Celebrate/Psi/Phenomenon (now called Don't Fuck With Magic)
The other NZ labels here are defunct (as far as I know).

Lots of gigs coming up and no money to go to them. Darn. Wish I was going to Health and wish I was going to Isis. Ah well. It is not to be.

No show this week

I'm heading up to Auckland this week so I won't be doing a live show. Back as usual next week.

Two nights in Auckland will be very nice.
