Children’s TV dancing genitals cartoon sparks parental outcry in Sweden | Bacillakuten | Video

Snoppen och snippan *musikvideo* – Bacillakuten på Barnkanalen

Swedish children’s TV dancing genitals cartoon. Prepare to be outraged!!!… or not, at this frankly fairly innocuous, if quite amusing clip. The song was written and performed by Johan Holmström.

Hear more about this story (and more unusual music) on PMB211: Root Vegetables.

PMB210: Futurism, Energism, Bambooism (Paul Hart, Sharda, The Soulless Party, Dario Russo, Cavern Of Anti Matter, The Advisory Circle, Teisco, Brian Bennett, Conrad Wedde)

PMB210: Futurism, Energism, BambooismTime to catch up with some new releases and reissues on the show this week, dear listener.

We have a couple of selections from what we hope will be an ongoing series of reissues of the Bruton Music Library by Dutton Vocalion. Hot on the heels of Bombay Disco volume 1 comes volume 2, from which we have a track. Our favourite documentary series about Hitler’s time in an American high school, Danger 5, has released a 100-track(!) soundtrack album. There’s also a brand new/old track from Soulless Party, some Italian library music, the latest release from Field Hymns and we finally catch up with the new release from the Advisory Circle as well as one side from the latest 7″ by Tim Gane’s latest project.
