Matters relating to Maria and Emma’s show broadcast Saturdays at 5pm.

Buffet Slay (show #94)

Hello strangers.

As the airwaves were bustling with highlights from Bradford Festival, we didn’t have a show last month. Instead we shared The Record Club’s June radio show, 33 1/3 Revolutions which focuses on politics and social commentary in music.

On this month’s show we have some great new releases, many of which tied in very nicely with my general feeling of ‘what the F?’ lately because, you know, the world’s a mess.

Here’s what we played!

THE KING BLUES – We Are Fucking Angry
VIV ALBERTINE – Still England
MICHAEL KIWANUKA – Black Man in a White World
FOLD – Something Gives
LUCY DACUS – I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore
NORTH SEA RADIO ORCHESTRA – The British Road
VINCENT VOCODER VOICE – 500,000 Hymnals
HOCKEYSMITH – Let’s Dagger
ANOHNI – WDYSMFTE
LAPSLEY – Operator
RIZ MC – Englistan
METHYL ETHEL – Rogues
TAU – Mo Anam Cara
BEYONCE feat. JACK WHITE – Don’t Hurt Yourself

Back on 4th Sept, cheers!

 

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!
