Art girls are nice Their sheets are clean And they have good stuff Singing oh, aah Here come the cops. Auto writing is cool You can shout out loud Saying nothing And then the police came And closed it down.
You can now listen to Melodica every Thursday from 17:00-18:00 on Bondi FM in Australia.
Over East on the 344. I found these in the market. Wood blocks from the age of letters. The age of print and ink and waiting by the window for a lover’s missive; please mister postman. What headlines have these been part of, what guilty, sticky secrets, what grand hopeful projects, what dark epoch defining events have these humble letters helped to announce to the world? aCtress Caught On the jOb? Canary wharf Open day? KiCk of dOOm? Or perhaps something more humble but still useful, like an information sheet about the price of COffee? I bought them because I love the feel of these old things, they feel real, worn, used, useful, beautiful, special. I bought them because I like the typeface and they make up the letters of my artist name. I bought them to help me make my inky mark in this new year in the age of ones and zeros.
Chris Coco’s weekly radio broadcast. An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. In this episode Chris sets himself the impossible task of identifying the best tunes of 2010 and squeezing them into an hour (while nursing a head cold). So we end up with a selection of some of the finest music from last year (and not too much talking). Listen to this as a companion piece to last week’s best albums show.
