Second week of putting playlists up as we go!

There's a new computer in the studio with an internet connection on it! I managed, as you can now see, to put the entire playlist up in realtime. I'll let it speak for itself, except to say that I dedicated "This Is Not A Love Song" to Johnny Howard, George Bush and the Free Trade Agreement that's going to make us all vassals of the American Empire, starting now.
Also played a bunch more tracks from the wonderful Funckarma, under their moniker Quench. They produced the new Shadow Huntaz LP, taking electonirca & hip-hop to a new level... A bit of breakcore mayhem before we finished with some Aussie plunderphonic lunacy.

Playlist 08.02.04 (3:40 pm)

This week we had a few mini-specials: Started with a classical/folk/electronic crossover interpretation of The The, from an excellent 4-track EP of The The versions, and then a band with whom they shared a record label at the time, Nine Inch Nails, with two remixes courtesy of Telefon Tel Aviv, whose new album is finally out this week, and should be available in Oz any minute...
Iconoclastic UK label Ninja Tune is finally releasing some retrospective compilations, including a double-CD set of remixes released on the label. Tonight I decided to play a few of my fave Ninja remixes that didn't make it onto the (very cool!) compilation, including the only Amon Tobin remix I can think of that was actually released on Ninja Tune. I also played the slightly-longer original version of Four Tet's Bonobo remix...
Also just out is the long-awaited Shadow Huntaz album on Skam, which is a collaboration between three US MCs and the amazing Dutch brothers Funckarma. We heard some electronica-meets-hip-hop from Boards of Canada and cLOUDDEAD, and then a whole heap of Funckarma's extraordinary back-catalogue, as well as a couple of Shadow Huntaz tracks. More to come next week!

The The - ShrunkenMan (performed by Daau) [Nothing]
Nine Inch Nails - Where Is Everybody? (manipulated by Danny Lohner featuring Telefon Tel Aviv) [Nothing]
Nine Inch Nails - The Frail (manipulated by Benelli) [Nothing] {I know Benelli is actually Joshua Eustis with Turk Dietrich, but they've hardly done anything outside of this remix, and Dietrich is credited on a couple of trax on the new Telefon album as well...}
Telefon Tel Aviv - Map of What is Effortless [Hefty Records]
Ryuichi Sakamoto - Grief (Amon Tobin remix) [Ninja Tune]
Can - Oh Yeah (Sunroof mix by Gareth Jones and Daniel Miller) [Mute]
DJ Vadim - Who The Hell Am I? (Animals on Wheels remix) [Ninja Tune]

Montano - Shimmer [self-released promo CDR]

Funckarma - Spatial Convolution [dub]
Shadow Huntaz - Trenches [Skam]
Funckarma - Here and Now (original song by Céline) [On Records (main page here)] {No link for "Céline" - I have the terrifying thought that this is the grotesque Ms Dion, granulated to all buggery...}
Gridlock - Estrella (Funckarma remix) [Hymen]
Math - Forces Combined (Funckarma remix) [Musik Aus Strom]
Shadow Huntaz - Figure of Speech [Skam]
Funckarma - Lignite [dub]
Cex - Eleven Million Dollars Worth of Bearer Bonds [Tigerbeat 6]

Playlist 01.02.04 (1:28 pm)

Tonight we started with (and scattered through the whole show) a whole lot of what could loosely be termed "pop". Neil Gaiman, in his journal, mentioned a song by comics author/genius Alan Moore and his Sinister Ducks called "The March of the Sinister Ducks", which appeared on a flexi-disc with Fantagraphics' Critters #23 anothology, although it dates from even earlier than that. It was a collaboration with David J of Bauhaus, so we had to hear a brilliant classic by Bauhaus after that. Can made an appearance because Damo Suzuki is in town, and a bunch of new stuff got featured: A new CD from Trinkets, instrumental folky post-rock, featuring beautiful violin and occasional cello, from Brisbane - yay!
A new album by Dublin-based Herv, released on his Compactrisc label, showcasing an innovative electronic scene that seems to be springing up in the capital of Eyre what with Skkatter as well - and the Maersk track on the same label is really nice postfolkrock(tronica?) too!
And finally on the new tip, there's a new album by Fantômas, mastered as one 74-minute (or something) track. The press release says "Needless to say, this won't be played on the radio", so I had to take the bait, and played a 5(ish)-minute chunk that was pretty UFog-friendly!

Sinister Ducks - March of the Sinister Ducks [once released by Fantagraphics Books, and can be downloaded at this location]
Bauhaus - Bela Lugosi's dead [Small Wonder Records, which you can Google for if you like...]
Can - Mushroom [Spoon/Mute]
