I’m sure I heard this back in the day, but Ian Fondue posted this onto Facebook and it’s a classic mix of 88 (count ‘em!) rave anthems. Love the Orbital vs Tone Loc bit especially.
Hope you like the cover, it was quite hard to design badly, and break all the rules…must….not…correct!
Yes Radio Clash is 9…number 9…number 9…years old as of last week, and I go Back to the 90’s (ALL the 9’s – 89-99!).
A paean to covermount CDs and cassettes, and to Deep Heat, Thin Ice, Right Stuff compilations, where shirts were Global Hypercolor, the posters were Magic Eye (Complaints, mostly), the record covers looked like a freshly trained intern had just discovered the DTP type stretch function, and the music was a mix of skippety-skippety house, italo house, r&b, balearic, rave, big beat, hardbag, speed garage, indie, britpop, power pop, trip hop, early trance and IDM. And anyone who knows me. Even the Xmas Rave Battle for #1 gets a look in!
I was charged for excess, but excess it never came (2:06 / 168Mb)
It’s Festive Rave Wars for the Xmas #1 this year! Campaign to get Altern8’s Activ-8 to Christmas #1 has been floating around for a while but now Mark Archer is re-releasing the Masked Hysteria classic it’s going into hyperdrive, with remixes from Balkan Vinyl faves such as AGT Rave Cru, DJ Phantasy, DJ Billy Daniel Bunter & King Yoof, Tommie Sunshine & Costeffects, Rocket Pimp and many others. You can pre-order on iTunes now.
Nice one, top one, get Santa!
But hark! Ding dong! A new contender has entered the ring – Orbital are releasing Christmas Chime the day before, with a new video – which is very funny and you can also pre-order on iTunes.
Which will win? Head torches vs facemasks, bells vs bleeps?
Probably a record for a podfade or as we at Radio Clash like to call it ‘just popping down to the shops‘. The shops are of course in Timbuktoo…
It’s nearly 5 years since my last digital debris podcast and nearly 50 years since Doctor Who and it’s theme was shown. So I journey into the world of ‘De La Russe’, more well known as Delia Derbyshire the creator (and some say co-composer) of that show’s theme and many other BBC Radiophonic works. Lots of rarer spoken word and radio works she did are featured, rather than just the ‘usual’ which of course make an appearance but along with spoken word clips and readings as is usual with digital debris.
Thanks to Martin Guy and many other DD fans for the audio clips that otherwise would have made this podcast impossible, and those people whose documentaries I mixed in.
Various spoken word clips unless otherwise noted:
P.S. This is one of my walk images from 2012, from the Burnham on Crouch to Tillingham walk – red in honour of Delia whose pseudonym was DeLa Russe.
