On this week’s show, our dynamic (*ahem*) duo, high on cups of tea and possibly a sly biscuit or two, roll out tracks covering the glossy, not-remotely-ironic 80s production of Tigercity, the dubstep-meets-ska of Jazz Steppers, arguably the all-time gay anthem of Man 2 Man feat. Man Parrish and the unassailable genius of the KLF’s awesome (and frankly bloody hilarious) “Whitney Joins The JAMs”.
Now, as some may be aware we record these shows in pairs, and this was the second one of our last session, done on the 27th January. So, it was with some sad irony that Trick opted to air the mighty John Martyn’s “Devil Get My Woman”, singing the man’s praises… only to get news from Tom 24hrs later that the big man himself had passed away at the age of 60. A sad loss indeed – but hey, let’s celebrate the man’s music as it rightly deserves.
As if all that isn’t enough, we also have the ragga-meets-Quo stylings of Elephant Man (no, seriously), the b-more stylings of KZ & Bullfro… er… Bulldog, and the minimalist brilliance of Plastikman’s “Consumed” LP.
Factor in chatter covering gay disco, pretending to be the KLF, the days when headless guitars were fashionable, Tom’s guilty infatuation with Lacey Turner, the campness of early 80s hip hop and much, much more… Get stuck in!
