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

Buffet #68 – what more excuse d’ya need to turn into a headcase?

So has anyone seen that Maroon 5 video? The one with him stalking a woman and fantasising about a “sexy” blood bath? Honestly, the blatantly shit and potentially very scary ideas some bands come up with, in addition to already producing music that is wank. Pffft….Anyway, we played some marvellous stuff on our radio show, even if my son did exclaim “What is this CRAP you are listening to???” when he heard one of two new Prince albums.  And how lovely to be a triumvirate again – Happy Birthday Jenny Jet!
