26 November 2012

Usual guff, but this time with guest Matt in the studio with us

The Beatles - Taxman
John: George didn't want to pay his taxes back in 1966. Dangerously close to jumping the shark there, you class warriors.

Eric B and Rakim - Paid In Full
John: Yeah, which we'd rather be too. Some early hip-hop there from 1987, a time when there was no such thing as too many samples.
Carolyn: Yes, like 'we've got all these bits, let's shove another one in'

The Divine Comedy - Complete Banker
John: From the 2010 album Bang Goes The Knighthood. I think I've thumped that tub enough now.
Carolyn: Yes dear, shall we move on?

Cover Version Corner
Royal Festival Orchestra/The Cats - Swan Lake
John: The Royal Festival Orchestra playing Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake - well, a bit of it - and a ska'd up version which is great for when the sun's out, roof down on the car and the volume up.

The Shins - Simple Song
John: From the current album Port Of Morrow. They are from Albuquerque.

Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy
John: In what is becoming a feature where we make everyone feel old, that's off Blue Lines which is 21 years old.
Carolyn: It can't be. I refuse to accept time has passed so quickly.
John: This show is becoming like a musical Logan's Run. 'I'm still young!'

Groove Armada - Paper Romance
John: They have a new single out, Pull Up, but this is from a couple of years ago off the album Black Light.

Adam Green and Binki Shapiro - Here I Am
John: Out now, that's off the album also called Adam Green and Binki Shapiro and jolly pleasant it is too.
Carolyn: Binki?

Professor Kliq - Moth Returns
John: Chicago artist Mike Else performs as Professor Kliq - with a K and a Q.

One Degree Of Separation
The Smiths - I Want The One I Can't Have
Morrissey - You're The One For Me, Fatty
John: Not exactly going for a massive leap here. These are Matt's choices. Any reason behind picking those tracks?
Matt: I still think he's among the best live artists around today and they're two really good tunes.
John: First the Smiths from Meat Is Murder back in 1985 and the second from Your Arsenal in 1992.

Steve Mason - Lost and Found
John: The ex-Beta Band man, that's off Boys Outside which came out in 2010.

The Primitives - Crash
John: Another one to make us feel old, that's from 1988. Two minutes, bosh, done, perfect.
Carolyn: I was looking for that the other day. And now we have it. That's not the single version though is it?
John: No, that was a recording from an Andy Kershaw session.

White Denim - Street Joy
John: From Austin, Texas, that's off last year's album D. As in the letter D.
Carolyn: White Denim had to be from Texas.

Ty Segall - Thank God For Sinners
John: From San Francisco, that's off the album Twins which is out now.
Carolyn: Lots of old stuff tonight, but finish on something new.

Here's your YouTube playlist.
