PMB269 Tokyo Conservation Spiders (Hackney Colliery Band, Family Atlantica, Diamondback Manhunter, Beverely Sisters, Belbury Poly, Vanishing Twin, Tokyo Elvis, Occams Laser, The Bongolian)

PMB269 Tokyo Conservation SpidersBefore you think we’ve gone ultra-niche and come up with a set of tracks about spiders in Tokyo who are specialists in conservation, no, dear listener. No, this week’s show is a chance for us to catch up with some exciting new releases and reissues.

We open with a double-barreled blast of brass from London, followed by a track from the magnificently-named Diamondback Manhunter. There’s also a track from the new album from Belbury Poly as well as the lead single from the debut album by Vanishing Twin.

The show closes with an extremely exuberant Moog workout, for which you might want to spend the show working yourself up.

Thing of the Week

LEGO Pharaoh's Quest 7326: Rise of the SphinxThrowing dynamite from his racing hotrod, Mac McLoud blows a hole through the temple to take one of Pharaoh Amset-Ra’s six treasures. What looked like an easy job just got much harder! Two mummies chant a magical spell to awaken the giant Sphinx guardian. Can Mac escape with the Golden Sword before it’s too late?

We have no idea who Mac McLoud is, dear listener, nor why this pack seems to include Anubis rather than a sphinx but nevertheless we urge to you to make a purchase. And be quick, for only one remains in stock!

PMB267 Days of the Week: Monday (Johnny Pearson, Mary Roos, Melkeveien vs. Niño, Mrs. Miller, Chanteurs Pour Enfants, Clipounets & Les Petits Minous, Trio Nago, Stepan Smetacek & New Orchestra of Dreams, Roberto Firpo, Remigio Ducros & Massimo Catalano, Beautiful People Fanfare Club)

PMB267 MondayThis week, dear listener, we start a new cut-out-and-keep series all about the days of the week.

Perhaps contentiously, we start with Monday. Recognised by many as the first day of the week, we do also appreciate that for large parts of the world, Monday is actually the second day of the week.

However, for future reference, the official position here on the moon is that we subscribe to international standard ISO 8601.

On this celebration of all things Monday, we bring you library music from the UK, skweee from Norway, educational music from France, extremely groovy music from the Czech Republic and possibly the crackliest record we’ve ever played on the show.
