The Show: Flirting with disaster


RIP Dele Fadele, NME journalist during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Although he actually died sometime during 2018 the news only became public a few weeks ago.

In 1992 he became one of the first people to call Morrissey out on his flirtation with right wing imagery.

“For what’s it’s worth, I don’t think Morrissey is a racist. He just likes the trappings and the culture that surround the outsider element. He has some racist friends. And if he carries on this way, he’ll have thousands more.”

Unfortunately, we now know how that particular flirtation turned out.

Mr. Fadele also fronted his own band, Welfare Heroine, and it’s their ever-so-slightly-baggy cover version of the 1969 Peter Sarstedt song “Where Do You Go To My Lovely” that features in today’s show.

And on with the show…

The Show: Pearly Qdrops Drops


We admit that the pun for this week’s show title came first and we then frantically tried to base a playlist around it. Very much a cart-before-the-horse scenario.

It proved to be a good excuse for our biennial trawl through the Cocteau Twins back catalogue, cover versions and all. This included finding a surprising take on “Wax & Wane” by Deftones, which narrowly failed to make the cut in today’s set.

The QAnon portion of the pun is provided by an interview from the All Gas No Brakes YouTube channel (imagine a Louis Theroux documentary put through a Tim & Eric filter).

The remainder of the spoken word clips are taken from On The Media’s “Spheres Of Influence” which takes a dive into “conspirituality” and the rise of pastel QAnon.

And on with the show…
