Groove On The Wireless #36 Let it flow

The Doctor returns from Body & Soul which took place in an enchanted forest near a castle where everything was a temporary autonomous zone wonderland  ( except for the rain which came on hard and fast for two days and relented for the day trippers on Sunday).  Some of the artists / producers which were there are in this show, like Pantha Du Prince and Jon Hopkins, and it triggered memories of festivals of years gone by when we used to just go to hang out with the crowds or revelers.  Festivals are important element of Irish Culture, where you go into a field in summer, expect any kind of weather and cut loose regardless.  There we buzz off each other as people, seeking new ways to cajole, laugh, ridicule, and joke with each other.  Music, yeah that’s important but like many things, people make the festival.  Body & Soul was a cracker.

Let it Flow  is one of those songs from a long long time ago when two chancers danced together outside a burger van in the middle of a festival.  Some dances live longer in the memory –

This Show Totally Rocks Numero 40 27th June

This Show Totally Rocks Numero 40 27th June

GO TO GGI GO TO GGI GO TO GGI GO TO GGI.  I am going to spend the next few days throwing all mater of shapes and drinks into myself in a field in Ballina so I threw all sorts of stuff at this week’s show.  Ste has been clamouring for some proper Fugazi, so I not only played Fugazi, but went ahead and stuck a bit of Minor Threat in for the laugh.  Next up is a bit of CIV for Trevor (another request I was happy to grant and will continue to do so provided the bands requested aren’t total rubbish) and then on to some Really Red and some Henry Rollins.  Then it all goes fairly Killed by Death for a while with The Thermals,  The Swimming Pool Q’s,  Buzzcocks and The Boys.  Next up it’s the 2 greatest (and possibly only)  African American Punk bands to ever strap on guitars:  Death and Bad Brains.  At the half way mark it’s a Portland double header with Poison Idea and Defect Defect, before throwing out a few for the kids with Diarrhea Planet, Rozwell Kid, Jeff the Brotherhood and Magic Jake and the Powercrystals.  Then its one for the adults from The Soft Boys, before finishing with a set for  the younger (than me) generation with FIDLAR, Audacity, Neon Piss, the Lovely Bad Things and King Tuff rounding off the proceedings.  Tune in, play Loud, Go to the GGI.
