Radio Cure #10 – “The Clap”

Radio Cure 10

The show this week is titled “The Clap”! No, it’s not an hour of music by artists who may carry STDs. Instead it is a compilation of songs that all contain ‘handclaps’ and the musicians performing the claps may have or may, at some stage in their lives, of had a sexy sexual disease. But that’s not for me to say. So I give you “The Clap”! See what I did there? Funny isn’t it? Enjoy the noise!

Slight Return 14

SR 14
Can we ever say anyone is truly wrong? That they are absolutely wrong? On a recent trip to France, I was confused by a vigil we passed, and while trying to work out through my pigeon french whether the vigil was either Pro gay marriage and adoption or Anti, a youngish man approached us to answer our questions. However rather than try to influence or persuade us to his POV, he emphasised that his group had a right to express their views peacefully, without being discriminated against. Are there moral absolutes or is it all one giant grey area?

Sam Harris (Ted Talk) uses the example of a (Christian) father wanting to kill his gay son before he gets a boyfriend, preventing him from sinning, and condemning himself to hell. Equal rights has been on my noodle all the time recently – what level of social injustice is acceptable??? Why should we fight for equal rights where the rights don’t concern us? Because we are part of the oppression if we don’t. That’s it.

14. Rudimentary Peni – The Horrors IN the Museum

Damien Dempsey is Ireleand’s Vegemite, you love him or hate him, no inbetween. I think he’s great. He grew up near my home and I feel he is one of ours. Dublin Town is about my town. “This is a love song, cos I love my people” I cringe with delight and pride whenever I hear this.

11Paranoias is from their debut album, superunatural, kind of like dublin these days. It is dark and heavy and strangely alluring. It is doomy but when the headphones are on it is somewhere to get lost

Catholic Block is a song from my youth, I saw Sonic Youth in McGOnagles, it was one of many great gigs in that long lost Dublin venue. I think I will do a show on them soon.

I did see Paranoid Visions in McGonagles and most other now closed down venues in Dublin. I have been singing the prasies of their latest album, escape from the austerity complex for quite a while now and Poles Apart is from this

Integrity are coming to Dublin this week, it is adding to a heavy show tonight and there will be some heaviness going down at fibbers this week

There’s something about the Hives that I love and it’s not the suits that they wear. T.H.E. H.I.V.E.S. is from their Black and white album which is a real rocker

This Hives song reminds me a bit of Black Eyes, kind of a distant disco relation but I like to have any excuse to play Black Eyes. Someone Has His Fingers Broken has me jumping around this room. great music for headphones.

So what about Grant Hart? Can you believe he has a new album out? Called the Argument? Awake, Arise is from this. It doesn’t disappoint

When the ex and dog faced hermans came to town back on November 5 1991 i had acheived all I needed to in life up to that point. I’d seen all i needed to see and woould have gladly travelled on that custom bus the bands were using to travel around Europe. Of course I’m glad now I chose to stay in glorious Dublin town as my life took a glorious journey but that night November 5 I will rembmer for ever. They didn’t play Walt’s Disneyland as the album this is on, Dizzy Spells, didn’t come out until a decade later but their two shows in Dublin that night were memorable, life affirming. You’d have to have been there, truly remarkable

Dan Le Sac and scroobius Pip are coming back to dublin in October Try and get there if you can

Glimmermen have a new album out. It is being launched in a couple of weeks. Self released local boys, any chance you can buy it?

Soccer 96 are from Brighton, nearly my favourite UK city. There is a compilation out now called Sea Monsters. It is the third year in a row to see such a comp Soccer 96 is a band name, to catch anyones eye. Mexico wasn’t it?

I saw Who Shot Who last year and the lead singer was dressed as a prioest, I knew he wasn’t one but I still wanted to confess my sins to the man, thankfully I only told him how long it was since my last confession and he let me pass with no treaty nomercy.

I’ve never seen Rudimentary Peni live but would have loved to. Cacaphony album has just been re-released on Southern and is a class album. I could have played any of the 30 tracks but the horrors in the museum gives a good indication of the band

This Show Could Totally Be Your Life


This Show Totally Rocks Numero 44 25th July

I don’t know what made me think of Our Band Could Be Your Life this week.  Maybe pics on FB from touring bands, or playing The Minutemen on last week’s show, or even a recent night in, listening to some old Chicago/Austin noise rock, but it got me to thinking of how great the bands in the book were/are and how mad some of the stories are.  If you haven’t read the book, read it, start today.  So on to the show.  It starts off with a bit of the Wipers, just cuz.  Then it is a chapter by chapter run down of the bands in the book:   Black Flag, Minutemen (Click the link for We Jam Econo) , Mission of Burma, Husker Du, The Replacements, Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers, Big Black, Dinorsaur Jr, Fugazi, Minor Threat and Mudhoney.  I skipped Beat Happening as I don’t have any of their material and I will leave the room if any is put on the stereo.  So that is the book and its worth the price alone for the story of Watt gaffer taping the legs of his trousers shut for days to keep in a severe case of the trotskys.  The other big revelation this week was that Poison Idea was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.  They are followed by Bad Religion, The Angry Samoans, Mule , the Jesus Lizard and lastly Fucked Up.  Alright that’s your lot, enjoy, let’s get it on!!!
