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

2. 50 Sniffs – That’s Why I Only Call You When I’m High (feat. Arctic Monkeys)
