RC 209: Norwegian Blue

Although I recorded this last week I was so busy only just got round to posting it now, the 2nd of the 3 back to back (ish) shows…and this is a companion piece to RC 167: Not Here Right Now, with a downtempo look at that terrible events in Norway and the death of Amy Winehouse…where words fail and all you have is music left.

Rather than focusing on the gorey lurid drive-by moneyshots that the media specialises I tried to make more a downbeat meditative show (a calm lake to the last show’s crashing sea) with hope in it’s eyes, partying and throwing glitter into the face of fascism but also exploring the darker and angrier side of a slightly schizophrenic happening – but at no point giving the platform to madness.

Shout outs go to CTels excellent Acid Ted blog where I got and found out about Kodomo and suchlike, Potholes in my Blog for the Weeknd remix, Indie Shuffle and of course Stereogum.
