PMB184: Frozen Solid (45 Caliber Recordings, Neal Hefti, Alan Parker, Mary Medley, Allan Cleary, John Blackinsell Orchestra, Dondero High School, Douglas Wood, Death By Chocolate, Koryo Saito)

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.

PMB182 The Rolling Stones - England's Oldest Hit MakersWe’re not afraid to visit the same very specific topic twice, dear listener, so having marked the 50th anniversary of the formation of The Rolling Stones back in PMB074, on this week’s show we mark the 50th anniversary of the release of their eponymous debut album.

We’ve chosen to do this by attempting a track-for-track cover of (most of) the tracks on the original album through the various media of lounge music, minimal synth, Galician punk and ukulele to name but a few.
