Let’s Get Social!

It may not be in quite the same league as “The Bathrooms Are Coming” (which you can hear on PMB160: Musical Industry, along with lots of other corporate pop) but this paean to social media is certainly a very moving piece of work, even if the only parts of one’s body that move are the toes:

Project Moonbase in Wired Magazine

Wired, March 2014We’re rather delighted to report that we got a mention in the March 2014 edition of Wired magazine (the US edition) as part of a section by Questlove called How to Listen Now.

You’ll find us at the bottom of page 85, where we’re described as an “oddly specific” podcast specialising in sitar-driven psychedelia, 8-bit and other trips.

Thanks chaps.

PMB171: An Ill Wind (Unit 4 + 2, The 4 Seasons, The Rokes, The New Topnotes, Las Cuatro Monedas, Johnny Hartman, Jean-Pierre Decerf & Myriam Chadcar, Gogi Grant, Setsuo Ohashi, John Buzon Trio)

PMB171 An Ill WindFor the first time on Project Moonbase, we bring you the first part of a conceptual double album, the concept being wind. This arose largely because of two differing approaches taken by DJ Bongoboy and MC Zirconium to the subject, with the former taking a somewhat “Carry On” approach and the latter a more academic one. The end result was so many great pieces of music that we decided to split them across two shows.

So for this first part we bring you a hopefully chuckle and titter inducing selection of tunes, mostly from the more innocent 60s, where the topic of wind had less of a double entendre than it perhaps does now. On next week’s show we’ll be taking a more meteorological and geographical approach to the four winds.
