are your ears painted on?
This programme is meant to serve as a roadmap through the best of the globetrotting music blogosphere. Feel free to kick back and let us do the driving as we create an alternative pop history from this lost world of undiscovered artefacts. Or, if you're feeling fresh, grab the wheel: extra hunting and gathering once you delve into our suggested pit stops will lead to hours of thrilling musical discovery (along with a seriously stunted social life).
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"!
On this week's programme we sample South African Tsonga Disco, French Playdough-phonics, Greek Electronic Witchcraft, Finger snapping Library Jazz, Japanese Femme Crime Funk, Wonky Afrobeat and much more... chOOn!! in!
