The Show
On the show this week we enjoyed a musical miscellany featuring several recent acquisitions found in local charity shops as well as some library music and a splash of Moog…

The Music
1. Keith Woodman’s Piccadilly Brass – Mexican Flier (On The Brink Return Of The Instro-Hipsters, 2007)
2. Alan Tew – Brazil (Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, 1977)

That last track was one of the tracks I picked up in a local charity shop recently and the album is worth getting just for the bizarre photo of Mr Tew on the back of the sleeve.

Next up, a brace of tuneless twanging, but great tuneless twanging it has to be said:

3. Puccio Roelens Orchestra – Detroit City (Ciao Musica, 2007)
4. Sukia – Vaseline & Sand (Contacto Espacial con el Tercer Sexo – 1997)

The Large Hadron Collider is due to be fired up this week (see news story below) so we thought we would mark the occasion:

5. The Moog Cookbook – Black Hole Sun (The Moog Cookbook, 1996)

Two slices of latin loveliness:

6. Bill McGuffie – Begin the Beguine (When Lights Are Low, 1973)
7. Cal Tjader – Sally’s Tomato – Soña Libré

Thanks to Jeff for drawing my attention to this fabulous slice of space disco:

8. Alan Hawkshaw – The Speed Of Sound (Elaste Vol. 2, 2008)

9. Ten Plus (aka Alan Parker)– 9-10-Out (Watch With Teacher, 2008)

When Jeff was on the show the other week Jean-Claude Vannier was our featured artist and listeners may recall that M. Vannier worked with many great musicians including one Bernard Estardy:

10. Bernard Estardy – Cha Tatch Ka (Top Timing!)
11. Janko Nilovic – Hand In Hand (Last Impressions, 2007)

Wonderful news reaches us at Moonbase Towers of the imminent release of a new album by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Dana Countryman. To celebrate we played a track from the first album that they put out in 2006:

12. Jean Jacques Perrey with Dana Countryman – Atomic Twist (The Happy Electropop Music Machine, 2006)

Followed by some Moog-ska:

13. The Vulcans – Red Herring (Star Trek, 2005)

A recent trip to some local charity shops has thrown up some great tunes and here are a couple more:

14. Perry Botkin – Ode to Billy Joe (Folk Hits From Across the Sea, 1969)
15. Henry Mancini – Policewoman (The Cop Show Themes, 1976)

The long-awaited release of a DVD containing the amazing music videos by Cornelius is out so we played something by the great man:

16. Cornelius – The Microdisneycal World Tour (Sean O’ Hagan Mix) (Sushi 4004, 1997)

And to close, another track from the 10th anniversary reissue of Air’s Moon Safari which includes a whole load of remixes, rarities and radio sessions:

17. Air – Kelly Watch the Stars (Moog Cookbook Remix) (Moon Safari Remixes, Rarities and Radio Sessions, 2008)
