The Hand Loom Lament Radio Hour
Everyone keeps dying. It's getting me down.
Rolf Julius is dead. Trish Keenan is dead. Casco is dead. John Barry is dead.
More importantly, Neil Young, one of the most graceful players to ever pull on the sacred sky blue colours of my beloved Manchester City, is also dead.
All these passings are categorical proof that:
A) Nietzsche was right. God is fucking dead. B) There is no fucking God. But I reckon that was what Friedrich was probably getting at.
So... tonight I invite you to shuffle off your mortal coils and join me for an hour of musicking themed around one of lifes only certainties.
Featuring brain dreck sermons from 16 Bitch Pile Up, hopelessly optimistic street corner gospel, doomstep auteurship fro Shackleton, paranoid dub fantasy from Augustus Pablo, industrialized nightmare clatter from Lemon Kittens, Thai pop exotica based around the death of an entire city, French underground electronic garishness and loads of other stuff to slit yer wrists to.02:00 - 03:00
