Beard Radio 08.10.09

This week's show is available to listen again.

Stew and Gary bring the tunes and the swears - hey, PJ Harvey started it! A bit of dubstep, an amazing wiggly grime instrumental, some beautiful jazz, lush disco with amazing synths, Iranian classical music and NEW LIGHTNING BOLT! Rhode Island's finest unleash a gonzo hoedown.

I made a slip of the tongue during the show. I said Angels was by Don Cherry. It is of course by Don Ayler.

Darkstar - Aidy's Girl's A Computer; Hyperdub 5 (Hyperdub)
PJ Harvey & John Parish - A Woman A Man Walked By/The Crow Knows Where...; A Woman A Man Walked By (Island)
Position Normal - Fart In A Bottle; Cassette Album (Self-released)
Micachu and The Shapes - Calculator; Jewelry (Rough Trade)
The Thing - Angels; Bag It! (Smalltown Superjazz)
Terror Danjah - Zumpi Hunter; Gremlinz (Planet Mu)
Lightning Bolt - Funny Farm; Earthly Delights (Load)
Zeki Duygulu - Karciar Taksim; Victrola Favorites (Dust To Digital)
XTC - Respectable Street; Black Sea (Virgin)
Patrick Cowley - Going Home; 12" (Megatone)

Our Glasgow listeners can catch Darkstar, along with Rustie and Jaimie Vex'd, at Ballers Social Club at Stereo on Friday October 9th. Micachu is also playing Glasgow that night, at the Captain's Rest. And Ballers also present Terror Danjah at the Sub Club on October 22. What a month for gigging and clubbing!

Pick up the excellent Position Normal cassette album from their website. A hauntological, scatological, wonky sample-based delight!

This week's wonderful bed music was Billy Mure's Supersonic Guitars Vol II. The cover, I'm sure you'll agree, is rather beautiful.
