shows // chOOn!!
This programme was born out of the desire to share the best of the most amazing downloads siphoned from deep within the bloated bowels of the globetrotting music blogosphere.
A lost world of undiscovered artefacts and simply outrageous sounds await your careful attention with an oddball selection wandering through past and present independent music, worldbeat gems, exotic oddities, bizarre disco, creepy soundtracks, fuzzy library, deviant crossovers, primitive electronics, amateur incidents, nowadays outsiders...and forgotten fourth world composers. From the sublime to the ridiculous but all fit to be branded "chOOn"!
here's choon i made earlier
chOOn!! presents musical narratives from Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, North and Southeast Asia and eastward to the edge of the earth – from Beirut to Bonnyrigg via Bombay.
Host mr. chOOn!! is a Dundonian-born filmmaker, writer and part-time model for Freemans clubby catalogue with roots in East Prussia by way of Yemen.
Narrative threads include dancing in underwear, mp3 tinkering, social media warfare, presenter/listener cyber courtships, the kaleidoscopic reinventions of pop culture with a mainstay of old and new treasures that delight and confound the earballs and everything in between and beyond.
Most simply this is a love letter to the trucking chOOn!!
