shows // Get Back To 8-bit
If somewhere in your black heart you pine for folk songs about asteroid-based slave camps at Christmas, whimsical verses exploring the infinite of the cosmos, electro packed lyrics concerning green leather jackets starting the new revolution and rap detailing the musings of taxi drivers in the 25th century? Get Back To 8-bit can solve all these problems. As well as providing the tunes, Gerald (and his sporadic collection of part time co-hosts) will keep you up to date on fandom and geek-worthy news stories from the farthest reaches of the planet to keep your urges satisfied whilst immediately spouting prophetic warnings of the forthcoming robotic revolution and how to properly take down any future threat with the nearest killamajig thereafter.
let's go and don't forget the droids.
For the last Get Back To 8-bit of the broadcast year, the steadfast G-funk and Ciaran Owens of Let's Get Physical will be picking each other's brains over fizzers in the stratosphere, meats of a vending machine, robots and robot killers in a global pissing contest, the other idea James Cameron had to deal with the oil spill and why the best way you can spot an online nonce is targeted at people who can actually spell. To play you out over the course of two hours will be a hefty mix of summer-time surf and chiptune. Surftune if you will. It's tomorrow at the slightly earlier time of 13:00-15:00 because I went and stole Ciaran's slot so One Louder could have their own two hours. You should listen to them too. BE THERE.

If you're wondering what's happening on this week's Get Back To 8-bit, worry no more. I'll be sharing my thoughts on who you don't wanna call to deal with an oil spill, the story of Mr Stabby the friendliest robot on Earth, the coming cheese revolution and the smell of shirtless space Jew lotharios. And to tie in with scents to make the female heart flutter I'm having an all girl vocal fest of girls what sing and do lady songs. It'll be good! Join in tomorrow @ 14:00 on subcity.org. I shall be awaiting your validation dear listenersersersersers.

On tomorrow's Get Back To 8-bit, your heroes, Gerald Anderson and Andrew Drennan will be celebratin' the birth of Danny Elfman with TWO HOURS of non-stop music as well as the geek-worthiest stories of the week in interludes concerning the legality of the "burrito defence", the super abstract concept of nearly five centuries lost to pac-man in under 36 seconds, new cliques which test the limits of our patience and age and much much more. In a way, it's the GBT8-bit all of you have been waiting for, or at least all my friends have. GET YOUR CHAT IN! we'll be waiting.

When archaeologists look back on Get Back To 8-bit, what will they find? Robots marrying people, twitter feeds for colonic relief, gold encrusted gadget wankery, incomprehensible Asian restaurants, nerds, superheroes, geeks, ME!!!!

douglas adams would be proud.
Join in on today's Get Back To 8-bit as Gerald, Allan and Jamie indulge in some chiptunery of the Pink Floyd nature by playing The Dark Side Of The Moon in all it's synthesised goodness. Plus something else because it won't take up the full hour. We'll be discussing matters of global importance too, like ladies what lie about babies and a funny bra. Other things too. Join in today by listening live @ 14:00 and send us your messages.
