Summer Show

This week's show is a tribute to summer in all it's forms - as it comes in, as it goes out, when it breaks your heart or gives you hope. Technical difficulties mean I couldn't capture the stream so it's just the music this week. I do love WBRS but these sorts of problems are aggravating.

The new album from John Foxx And The Maths is his best work in 30 years. I'm still not sure when an artists revisits his most famous territory if it's bad or good, but I do love this new album.

6-14 Show

New stuff this week from TV Smith, F In Math and The Church, old stuff from Talking Heads, Monochrome Set and Minimal Compact. Sadly, the stations streaming broke again so there's no brilliant commentary from your humble host so I'll just make these few points:

TV Smith, the folk-punk, keeps churning out great music years after leading The Adverts.

Love the line from Marty Willson-Piper, "Andy Partridge/Robert Wyatt/You hear it/You buy it". Nice to know artists I like are just as big music obsessives as me!

Iggy Pop's solo albums are patchy (there's not much to "Skull Ring" but it's a great groove and chorus) but the Anthology really collects all the highlights.

I'm an unabashed fan of 80s synth-pop remixes, enjoy the 3 tracks that end the show!
