Radio Buffet – feat. Dr Jenny Jet’s Rock Surgery! July 2010

You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d happened upon a twisted radio version of ‘Loose Women’ if you tuned into Radio Buffet this month.

Driven by a kind of afro-beat rhythm that builds and builds on top of Garbus’ distinctive chanting and yodelling, this all came together to form a sound that’s brilliantly smart and stupidly brilliant, exemplified in ‘Sunlight’.
