PMB185: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s 2 (Oxykitten, Rich Menga, Hunter Complex, mitch murder, Norm Chambers, Suzanne Ciani, James Last, Hirut Bekele, Peachy Pixel8, Büromaschinen)

PMB185 Now That's What I Don't Call the 80s 2By far our most popular episode to date is PMB128: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s. We have no idea why that might be but in an attempt to re-create the huge success of that show, we thought it time to collect together another selection of music which sounds as though it could have been recorded 30 years ago. To that end, we bring you new/old releases from Oxykitten, Rich Menga, Hunter Complex, mitch murder and Norm Chambers.

We do also have some music actually recorded in the 1980s but we hope the strong legal defence mounted in the course of this week’s show justifying their inclusion proves convincing in the court of public opinion.

PMB184 Frozen SolidInspired by what is supposedly (and inexplicably) the highest-grossing animation film ever made, we bring you a show themed around Disney’s Frozen, including several improvements on tracks featured in that film as well some other ice-themed tunes which we feel should really have been part of the film.

PMB183: Confusion (Meridian Brothers, Hunter Complex, concretism, Theremin Hero, Fimber Bravo, Keith Seatman, Rabih Abou Khalil, Alexander von Mehren, James Last)

PMB183 ConfusionThis week on the show, dear listener, we bring you some recent releases and arrivals at the Moonbase which have been graded APPROPRIATE by our rigorous scoring algorithms.

We have another track from the extremely wobbly new album from The Meridian Brothers, some brand new 80s spookiness from Holland, a medicinal track from concretism, Theremin Hero playing his NESKeytar, music from one of our highly talented listeners Keith Seatman, the return of show favourite Caravan by means of the Lebanon and Munich, a rare return to an album we’d previously vacuum-sealed and consigned to the archive and we close the show with a quite extraordinary piece of alternate history courtesy of James Last.
