When Big Joan Sets Up 4th April – Three Times wi’ Scraps

“Electric Ocean” the new LP from Scraps was the focus of our attentions tonight. Scraps is the musical nom de plume of Brisbane’s Laura Hill whose sound is described by aintgotno on Facebook as ” Kimya Dawson/the Moldy Peaches & Fever Ray’s bubbly lovechild” which will do for us.

Added to this harrowingly beautiful sub bass from Killing Sound, a new LP from The Nightingales and the end of the first World War.

As mentioned on the programme there’s some of our tunes from WW1 plus loads of other vintage music at The University of California Wax Cylinder Digitization Project here :cylinders.library.ucsb.edu

    One of the teachers at my nursery once told my mother that it was likely I would grow up to be a juvenile delinquent, such was the standard of my behaviour at the time. Had my mother ever listened to Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers I suspect the prospect would not have disturbed her half as much as it did.
