AND IN OTHER NEWS! We are DJ-ing a fundraiser for Bradford People’s Assembly on Friday 13th November at Kirkgate Centre, Shipley. Come join the fun!
Really loved doing the show this week – chatting to BCB’s finest female DJs and playing some of their favourite songstresses. We celebrated International Women’s Day on The BCB Sessions – only broadcasting the voices of the fairer sex. It’s almost impossible condensing everything I’d like to play into an hour but here’s what made the mix:
Broadcast – Still Feels Like Tears
Gossip – Listen Up (live in Liverpool version)
Garbage – Only Happy When It Rains (Selected by Alissa Juvan, one half of BCB’s Fabric show)
Lush – Single Girl (back to 1996….)
Kaito – Should I (Chosen by Katie Jennings, one half of BCB’s DIY or Die show)
Anna Calvi – Blackout (atmospheric, immense…brilliant)
Blue Roses – Does Anyone Love Me (Acoustic BCB Session – shiny and gorgeous!)
Roisin Murphy – Ruby Blue (Selected by Sally Cooper, blogger, presenter/producer of many a BCB show)
Bat For Lashes – Horse and I (another one of mine…takes me right back to sitting on the carpet at the Brudenell Social Club being mesmerised along with many other people by N Khan in tight white jeans).
Nina Simone – Feeling Good (Chosen by Emma Adams, one half of BCB’s Buffet duo..we’re feeling good)
Peaches – Downtown (it was either this or suck on my ***** !@%&)
MIA – It Takes A Muscle (Had to play MIA…she’s ace)
Of course I’ve missed out loads of great female artists so I’d like to do it all over again with the women I missed Â - who should be in the mix next time? Suggestions please….Joan as Policewoman, Cat Power?? Your thoughts please. You don’t have to be a lady to contribute. Thank the lord.
If you missed the show you can listen again….hopefully this link will take you to it
Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs - The Dark Side Of The Moon
After last week’s snowbound cancellation this week, When Big Joan Sets Up emerged from the frozen wastes of Kippax like a big emerging thing to bring you Oaklahoman psychedelic legends,The Flaming Lips‘ radical reinterpretation of Pink Floyd‘s 1973 gazillion selling opus, Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.
This fact has led to me and Albert Freeman putting our not inconsiderable heads together to come up with other “classic” LPs that we’d like to see reinterpreted. Above the clamour of “haven’t you sad bastards got anything better to do?” (the answer to which is, he probably has, I definitely haven’t) we came up with the following:
