This week we delve into mid-80s US punk, bands paying tribute Italian horror composers, the music Italian horror composers do on their days off, the world of Bullion, the more out-there moments of the Fun Boy Three, the Super Furry Animals most manic moment, the fine funk of Chakachas (or Chaka Chas – think eastend cockney Chaka Khan), the Stones Throw library music collection and more.
In addition, we attempt to find our most distant live listener (stand up Jenni in Portland!), discuss the merits of Hawaiian music, fight over just how much you can talk about drugs on air and, well… more of the same really!
Thanks to those that interacted with us via our Twitter feed – if you missed out, tune in live next week to send us messages while we’re on air etc.
Remember: next week is our last show of the month, and therefore will be our Theme Show. The theme this month? Celebrity albums. You have been warned!

Here was our featured video for this show: Zombie Flesh Eater – Zombie vs. Shark
This, if we say so ourselves, is a peach of a show. We have chilled jazz fusion on the hippie tip courtesy of Compost, brand new brilliance from the ever-reliable Super Furry Animals, military disco from Meco, the vaudeville gypsy rock n’ roll insanity of Martin Martini and the Bone Palace Orchestra, baile funk from Feadz and even a track Tom correctly posits as the first ever hip hop track, from the bisexual queen of country (it says here), Ms. Joan Baez. Is Tom mad? Quite the contrary – check the show to hear his argument!
