Ben Dodd and His Organ – Pinker Sea (Trick Mammoth)

Ben Dodd hails from Christchurch and this cover track was the innocent start to a loud and thrashy 39th version of the show. There’s nothing fringier than organ music, so it was perfect really.

This track also featured on the compilation that was the basis for the show – You’re Not Invited – a triple album set of music from 2010-2015.

Ben Dodd also has a hilariously-titled follow up to the album that this track comes from: Borgan Dorgan Horgan Oorgan


Greg Johnson – No-one Makes it Alone

Show 38 Featured a preview of a new Greg Johnson Track, called No One Makes It Alone. It’s a catchy wee number, with references to what feels like hundreds of dynamic duos.

The video was released to newsletter subscribers – and has now been taken down…
Here’s how the newsletter described it:

Thanks so much for making the new album possible, it’s been an incredible journey making it and I am VERY excited to share the album with you all very soon. It’s sounding AMAZING!

If you haven’t heard yet, the album is called Swing The Lantern and will be released in August. We should have a confirmed release date very soon. Of course if you have pledged you will be the first to get the album.

It’s not too late to pre order the album at my website

In the meantime we wanted to share a video we put together to say thanks for Pledging and helping out along the way.

Take a survey and go in the draw

There’s also a survey where you can help Greg figure out touring options for next year.

Samuel Truth – Mercury

Samuel Truth is a musician and producer based in Auckland. The 15,000 strong bunch of followers on Soundcloud have a fair bit of work to choose from … and fans of crytic tweets will enjoy @TroySamuela on twitter. Try it out for something a bit different – and you can buy on bandcamp.

On Show 38 I played Mercury.

Next up: A load of Rs

Rowdy, raucous and ragged sounds on Wednesday’s radio show. From the reverb of Idiio’s Home, to the reflective Money Talks by New Gum Sarn. Witness more raw muscle from Dudley Benson, and the experience the rapacious thirst of the Wellington Sea Shanty Society.

Recalibrate with the right-on rock and roll of the Situations and the ratty noise of Transistors and you’ve got a radio show with a  righteous amount of r-tistic, r-tastic Kiwi music. rs, ahs, ahrs, rrrs …. Tune in to at 8pm on Wednesday, ye landlubbers.

Markdown – Boneman

No, not the markdown notation language, nor markdown prices for that matter; this Markdown is a punk band from Auckland who do short, snappy punk songs that show us how important the little things are. I played Boneman, Please remove your card and Lifecycle of a flea. Great fun stuff, you can find them on bandcamp.

Great aretwork too, eh?
