Beard Radio 1.10.09

Stewart and Gary return with an hour of amazing music and pish banter. In honour of our friend Alex's progrimage to Magma in London next week, we bring you a classic track by the French lunatics. Plus vintage Greek rebetika, deranged wobble-step, neo-Italo, dreamy bedroom pop, harsh black metal, Glasgwegian mutant hip-hop, classic doom, hauntological transmissions and glorious synth pop.

Raffertie - Wobble Horror; 12" (Planet Mu)
Pentagram - All Your Sins; Pentagram (Peaceville)
Marika Papagika - Zmirneikos Balos; I Don't Feel At Home In This World Any More (Mississippi Records)
Magma - Ima Suri Dondai; Mekanik Destruktiv Kommandoh (Seventh Records)
Antoni Maiovvi - They Return; Shadow Of The Blood Stained Kiss (Seed Records)
Nite Jewel - Artificial Intelligence; Good Night (No Pain In Pop)
Acephale - The Book of Lies; Mord Und Totschlag (Aurora Borealis)
Broadcast & The Focus Group - The Be Colony; Witch Cults of The Radio Age (Warp)
Hudson Mohawke - Star Crackout; Butter (Warp)
Thomas Dolby - Flying North; Golden Age of Wireless (EMI)

If you enjoyed the Thomas Dolby song, then check out Beard chum Joseph Stannard's interview with the synth-pop pioneer on Drowned In Sound.

This week's bed music was a charity shop favourite, Moog Party Time on Contour. The version of Sailor's Coconut is particularly choice, while the breezy take on Beautiful Sunday brought much cheer to the studio.
