Busy Buffet

We have lots to tell you!

First of all, there’s the latest radio show, which inevitably contains a bit of Prince, but TBH there’s something in there for everyone as we veer from rock to electronica to grime to disco Beatles. Described as “Top quality light entertainment” by Phil Cope, which puts us up there with Eurovision, right?

Then there’s Front Room Disco at Kirkgate Centre on Saturday 21st May, hosted by us! Yes, Wil Oddsox has entrusted us with his baby, the daft bugger. Expect disco chaos. We haven’t had a good dance in ages, we’ll be like crazy monkeys let out of the cage.

Finally, we’re also hosting Record Club on Saturday 28th May, also at Kirkgate Centre. The event is 33 1/3 Revolutions, so rock up with your political music and social commentary on vinyl. Wonder how many versions of Two Tribes you all have?

Hope to see you at one or all of the above!

Buffet #77 We let SXSW do all the work for us…

WP_20150319_001Obviously I’ve never been to South by South West (I live in hope) but each year I listen to the Austin 100, as compiled by Stephen Thompson, and pick a few tracks for our radio show. If you want to take advantage of the free downloads you have until April 2nd, so pull your finger out. It’s worth noting that SXSW has no problem booking female artists – Reading/Leeds really could learn a thing or two…

Here’s what we played on Buffet:

1. Summer Cannibals – Something New
2. Doomtree – Gray Duck
3. La Luz – Pink Slime
4. GABI – Fleece
5. Metz – Acetate
6. Terakaft – Tafouk Tele (The Sun is There)
7. Xetas - The Point
8. Tingle in the Netherlands – Housewife’s Lament
9. Mantar – Spit
10. Mama Cass and The Big Three – Young Girl’s Lament
11. Hinds – Bamboo
12. Aerial Pink – Dayzed Inn Daydreams
13. Swans – Screen Shot

We’re back on 19th April – hope you can join us!

Buffet #75 – The one where we missed six f-bombs

Funny story. Because we broadcast between 7-8pm we have to watch our language. The occasional small swear (a ‘shit’, for example) is acceptable , but ‘f***s’ and other swears are not, so we always fuzzy them up when there’s a record we really want to play. This means you know they’re there, but the sensibilities of the young and easily offended are somewhat protected.

However, for this week’s show, having already bleeped a track by Afghan Whigs and another by Sufjan Stevens (who hardly ever bloody swears) we somehow let six f-bombs through. SIX! And when I say somehow, what I actually mean is Boris didn’t notice them despite previewing the track several times. When I listened back later and heard the sweet soprano of FKA Twigs unleash a string of dirty f-bombs and, what’s more, in the context of singing about very graphic sex, I had no choice but to alert BCB and ask for guidance. Thank you to lovely Mary Dowson, Head Honcho and Goddess of Wonderfulness for stepping in. She took a decision to cut the track and stuck a lovely bit of Stevie Wonder on at the end (thankfully not Ebony and Ivory).

So, if you’re here to listen back to Buffet and want the sanitised version, you can listen here

But if you want to hear FKA Twigs mimicking early Prince, but without the humour (ie. singing about sex in a high-pitched voice and saying ‘Motherf***er’ a few times) you can listen to the show here

And here’s our full track list:

1. Courtney Barnett – Pedestrian at Best
2. Viet Cong – Bunker Buster
3. Bjork – Stonemilker
4. Novelist x Mumdance – 1 Sec
5. Afghan Whigs – Be Sweet
6. Ibeyi – Ghosts
7. Gruff Rhys – Liberty (Is Where We’ll Be)
8. FKA Twigs – Two Weeks (only on Mixcloud)
9. Tanya Tagaq – Uja
10. Thee Oh Sees – The Dream
11. Sufjan Stevens – No Shade In the Shadow of the Cross
12. Nadine Shah – Fool
13. Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba – Siran Fen
14. Stevie Wonder – Superstition (only on BCB listen again link)

Please join us for more japes on 22nd March! Or in the meantime follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Cheers! x

 

When Big Joan Sets Up 30th January – Pissing Trigger

On 13th January the great Ronnie Ronalde died aged 91. The man that John Peel described as “one of the great British entertainers” made his name through his uncanny ability to whistle like a bird – a somewhat archaic talent these days but still more impressive than anything Ed Sheeran has ever done. Roy Rogers once complained to him that his whistling made his horse,Trigger urinate involuntarily. The three tracks from his 2002 John Peel session included in this week’s When Big Joan Sets Up may well have the same effect on you.
