The Show
On tonight’s show: Easter Bunnies, tracks from the new Holden album, something from Mike Batt(!), ukulele, organ, Moog and a couple of tracks from the still-to-be-released new album from The Emperor Machine.

The Music

We started this Easter show with a brace of bunnies:

1. Metrophonics – Close Up (Charles Wilp: Michelangelo In Space – The Bunny Remixes, 2000)
2. Tipsy – Bunny Kick (Uh-Oh!, 2001)

Next up a track from the brand new album by Holden:

3. Holden – Mia (Fantomatisme, 2009)

Followed by another piece of French pop – complete with ukulele:

4. Mareva Galanter – C’est Bon (UkuYéyé, 2006)

@Mike_Batt started following me on Twitter so to mark this auspicious event we played this next track. Shortly afterwards, he stopped following me on Twitter. I’m not sure if the two are related:

5. Synthesonic Sounds – Superfly (The Easy Project – 20 Loungecore Favourites, 1973)

As a certain car manufacturer has decided to use a song by The Free Design to promote their latest vehicle we felt it was time play a song by this wonderful band:

6. The Free Design – Canada In Springtime (There Is A Song, 1972)
7. The Bran Flakes – Dance Of The Sugarsnap Fairy (I Have Hands, 2008)

Following the news of the “surprise” premiere of the new Star Trek movie (see below) we played possibly the only guitar version of the theme tune:

8. The Ventures – Star Trek (Batman Theme & TV Themes)

9. The Emperor Machine – The Frontist (Space Beyond The Egg, 2009)

10. Bill Bockey – Berk (45 single)
11. Tony Hatch & The Satin Brass – Codename (Sounds Of The 70s, 1970)

We meant to play this next track on last week’s show – oops!

12. Jack Parnell – Cha Cha Rock (Trip to Mars, 1958)
13. Bert Kaempfert – Cha Cha Brasilia (That Latin Feeling, 1964)

Then we returned to the new Holden album:

14. Holden – Longue Est Ma Descente – Fantomatisme – 2009

Followed by a track which we meant to play on last week’s show marking what would have been Joe Meek’s 80th birthday:

15. The Sharades – Dumb Head (Let’s Go! Joe Meek’s Girls, 1995)

Our roaming charity shop digger, Fuz, sent us a truly extraordinary version of the theme to the Godfather:

16. Harold Smart – Love Theme from the Godfather (Love Sensations)

And we closed the show with another master of the organ:

17. Dick Hyman – The Third Man Theme (The Man From O.R.G.A.N., 1965)

    Pleased to see the Joe Meek tributes this week and last. I was going to remind you about this anniversary but forgot. I'm particularly glad you finally played "Dumb Head". Awesome track. Nothing from 'I Hear A New World' though?

    I shall bring along my copy of the Meek 'Vampires, Cowboys, Spacemen & Spooks' CD when I'm next in Scotland – there's lots of great PM fodder on this comp!
