PMB259 Country ‘n’ Eastern (Gil Trythall, Eletronico, Alan Moorhouse, Gerhard Gregor, Goose House, Disasterpeace, Moondog, MODULAR, Jean-Jacques Perrey, The Mods, Percy Faith)

PMB259 Country 'n' EasternWe return from our recent hiatus with an admittedly somewhat deranged chimera of a show for you, dear listener. This is two themes for the price of one as we bring you a show about both country music and the current Easter festivities.

We have country Moog x 2, Japanese banjo enhancements, chiptune cake music, two bunny rabbits and some extremely futuristic folk music from Pakistan.

HIATUS ALERT UPDATE – AKA RETURN TO THE MOONBASE

hiatusThe projectmoonbase show will return on Good Friday.

If you have been asking yourself “Where Oh where is projectmoonbase?” The answer is “HIATUS” (sometimes called ‘IATUS). We don’t need to go into the whole whys and wherefores and why-art-thous here. Suffice to say that I brain wiped MCZ a bit too much and left him an empty vessel with not a thought in his head. Now while this may be fine if you want to be a quiz show host or a politician it is no good for a co-host of a top-quality podcast such as this. So the upshot is I am rummaging through the dusty vaults to try and track down a box of old C90 cassettes which I used to back up old MCZ’s brains from years gone by. I know they are in here somewhere. Usually I send MCZ to do the dusty vault rummaging but he is currently otherwise engaged staring at a ball. So as soon as I track down the old C90s and get the Grundig tape machine up and running and probably get a couple of episodes of The A-team inside him, I am sure he will be mostly functional. Pray for his resurrection and the resurrection of the show. Peace.

PMB258 Robot Symptoms (Neil Richardson, AzeTrane, Hugo Montenegro, The Heliocentrics, Lullatone, Maruo Maruko, Polysick, The High Llamas, Cavern of Anti-Matter)

PMB258 Robot SymptomsIt’s time to catch up with some new releases and reissues on the show this week. We have a couple of new reissues from Dutton Vocalion, including a version of show favorite Caravan which we’ve inexplicably neglected up until now. There are a couple of tracks which could be fake 80s but sound more like fake 90s filtered through the fake 70s. There’s also a double bill from Japan and we close the show with a couple of cornerstones/pillars of the Moonbase musical universe.

Thing of the Week

Scarlatti 3 Voice 48 Bass Accordion RedIf you were inspired by the sound of Maruo Maruoko’s nimble finger-work on the keys of her accordion on the show this week, this Scarlatti 3 Voice 48 Bass Accordion Red could be the perfect addition to your collection. It has 34 treble keys, 5 treble couplers, 3 voice, 12×4 bass and straps (though, according to an 80-year old reviewer, these could be a little on the short side. Also please note that while these instruments have good reeds and the instruments are excellent value, they are not finished to the standards of European makers.
