shows // Deadbeat Club
For people who have ever laughed at teenage pictures of their parents but secretly thought their jumpers were nice.
seks, drugs and killing
Anna's away to Malibu (NW1) to make the film 'Arthur' and a month's worth of tea, so this'll be our last show for a while.
Don't worry about feeling our absence though, because this show will dose you up for the month. I mean, it's got bloody PANPIPES doesn't it??

we've sacked the lounge jazz band.
Back in the Thursday swing of things, and we've gone and sacked our jazz lounge band.
Bonanza new feature 'Desert Bands-named-after-Islands Discs' is launched with all the ceremony that the well thought out concept deserves. Anna plays a track that's not quite as good as another track she wanted to play. Elsewhere, two artists want more, and boy do we deliver!!!
- if it was not particularly thought out conversation topics that French Kissing and Jay Reatard were wanting more of (think that it was?!!?).

If you were listening to a show where most of the chat is based around hypothetical action film situations and two morons shouting 'nail hands!??!' loads of times would you:
b) listen anyway, because the playlist is quite good
c) nail hands. !!??!!

my observation wasn't ready.
If radio were foodstuff, today's show would be haute quizine. That, or bizquizts.
Yes, from the bottom of today's chat barrel we produced the theme 'pub quizzes', so listen in for some tips, warnings and general etiquette, as we shamelessly plug the pub quiz we're doing. At Curlers. On the 27th February. See you there!!?!
Also the playlist is exclusively eighties, and is every good as bit as that suggests it might be.

less setback, more metaphor
When life hits you with setbacks, you can either lie there on life's metaphorical Byres Road, with life's metaphorical broken wine bottle by your side, or you can GET UP, aided by life's metaphorical three strangers (one of whom was middle aged..er...in the metaphor) or, better still, by (life's literal) YOURSELF. GODDIT?
Post punk/new wave tracks (like dem good old deadbeat days) plus some newer stuff, the playlist gives you a good indication of what it must be like to be Anna's neighbour. (This effect could be enhanced by listening to the show through a wall, but we wouldn't recommend it.)
