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!
