PMB218: Variable Currents (datassette, Dieter Reith, Weave of K., Yvette Horner, The Pattern Forms, Jean-Pierre Decerf, Steve Moore, Disasterpeace, John Carpenter)

PMB218: Variable CurrentsIt’s time to catch up with some of our favourite recent releases and reissues to reach us here on the Moon.

We’ve got business funk from an extraordinary new collection from datassette, some German space disco from an associate of The Herb, French library music, tracks from the latest two releases from Ghost Box and the show reaches a truly portentous pinnacle of horror with music from Disasterpeace and the debut album from up-and-coming talent John Carpenter.

PMB217: Hello Old Chum (Elaine And Derek, Teresa Brewer, Homer & Jethro, Paul Eachus & Dodworth Saxhorn Band, Kemialliset Ystävät, Arthur Lyman, Françoise Hardy, Barbariki, France Gall, University of Memphis Bottom Line, Las Jilguerillas)

PMB217: Hello Old ChumThis week’s show celebrates simple human friendship, whether that be expressed with a firm shake of the hand, a slap on the back or perhaps even, perish the thought, a hug.

We have some borderline terrifying children singing about Jesus, two (yes two!) French chanteuses confusing friendship for love, some very laid back exotica, even more laid back saxhorn and positively catatonic tubas.

Buy the artwork Hello Old Chum on society6 and Hello Old Chum on redbubble.
