PMB201: Highly Fertile (Laurie Johnson, Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa, Hailu Mergia & The Walias, Noisewaves, Mouse On Mars, Concretism, Blueblut, The John Warren Orchestra, William Onyeabor)

PMB201: Highly FertileIt’s time to catch up with some of our favourite new releases and reissues on the show this week, dear listener.

We have a couple of tracks from one of the terrific compilations being put out by Bob Stanley on his Croydon Municipal label. There’s also retro-futuristic music from Ethiopia and Nigeria, theremin jazz from Austria and the first tangible release from friend of the show, Concretism to name but a few.

We would like to heartily thank everyone who phoned the PMB hotline last week to leave a message for our 200th show – and also those of you who voted on our duelling duals. It’s taking a while for our super-computer to carry out the complex analysis of the results but we’ll bring these to you in the next week or two.

Are you Highly Fertile? ARE YOU!?

PMB200: Dual DuelWell dear listener, that moment has arrived – we have reached the 200th edition of Project Moonbase!

We would like to take this opportunity to mop away a tear and thank all of our loyal listeners who have stuck with us over the years, through yodelling and whistling. We would like to particularly thank those of you who were kind enough to suggest tracks for this edition of the show – and also those who respond to our invitation to call the hotline with messages of support.

For this week’s bumper edition of the show, we have paired up some of your and some of our favourite tracks in a series of face-offs. We leave it to you, dear listener, to decide which is the better version using an increasingly unmanageable collection of hashtags.

We think doubling up tracks like this works rather well. The question is, do you agree? #DualDuel
