Turn on, tune in, freak out.

I thought it was time to update my audio visual showcase, so I have added a plethora of YouTube videos to my Sound and Vision page, compiling all the best mixes and sonic experiments from the last few years.

I have also added a link to the folder containing these and dozens of other mp3 files, should you wish to download any of my peculiar ouevre, completely free of charge.

Enjoy the vibes.

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day fifty three.

Good morning and thank you for joining me on our final audio excursion into the unknown archives of the Melodic Randomiser, at least for the meantime.

So let’s get the last Isolation Radio show on the go, with a tune from proto-Underworld Welsh oddballs Freur and, purely by coincidence, my epic remix of the title track and only “hit” from their 1983 album, this is “Doot Doot”

To follow that, we take a hard left on the musical superhighway and catch up with another poor relation of a more famous band, Love and Rockets, who started out as Bauhaus. This is “Holiday on the Moon” from 1986’s Express album.

And the closing track for this, the last show in the series, comes to you from one of the more bonkers UK pop outfits of the ’80s, The KLF; whose rampant and chaotic career spawned some of the most recognisable walls of sound in dance music.

Thank you once again for listening and I’ll leave you with the 12″mix of the monumental “Last Train to Trancentral” from 1991’s The White Room.

Stay safe, look out for each other and don’t let the bastards grind you down.

Peace

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day fifty two.

Enough Isolation Radio shows to air one a week for a year!

Another milestone made possible by the musical oracle that is the Melodic Randomiser, which today brings you a trilogy of tunage that starts with…

The Cure and a song originally from their 1982 Pornography album, but shuffled to you here from the ’86 singles collection, Standing on a Beach; this is Laughing Bob and boys with “The Hanging Garden”

I doubt it’s every day that the world’s favourite goth cheerleaders find themselves in the company of upbeat New Orleans jazz, but today is that day. Because the next track is another from the soundtrack of Treme; this time the show’s main theme song by John Boutte (with the bonus of getting DoMaJe‘s theme from the wire, “Way Down in the Hole” thrown in for good measure)

Last in this week’s Saturday listicle is Mrs Musk, or Grimes to her fans (or possibly “X Æ A-12’s mum”) and a song from 2012’s Visions album; this is “Oblivion”

Join me tomorrow for the final Sunday Service in this current run, before the march towards the New Normal continues.

Have a lovely rest of the day, live long and spritzer.

Peace

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day fifty one.

Time to ease yourselves into the weekend with the Isolation Radio show, bringing you all the crucial tunes the Melodic Randomiser has to spare on this sunny, Summer Friday afternoon.

We begin today’s micro countdown with more from Molly Hatchet and their blistering version of the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, “Freebird”, from 1985’s “Double Trouble Live” album.

After which extreme riffery we have a touch of serenity from Beth Orton and the opening track to her Central Reservation album; this is “Stolen Car”

Where can we go from that unlikely segue? Well, into a song by the equally mis-matched, latex-clad, 80’s Swiss hair metal screamers, Krokus, that’s where. This is a track from their 1980 Metal Rendezvous album called “Heatstrokes”

That should set the tone for a decent Friday night so, whatever you’re up to this weekend, have a great time and stay safe, my friends.

Peace

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day fifty.

The Isolation Radio show hits the half century in style, as the Melodic Randomiser takes us one day closer to something approaching normality with today’s top three.

Starting with a fantastic track from Patti Smith‘s 1978 Easter album, this is the anthemic call to arms “Till Victory”

Thursday’s second tune is by David Bowie and comes from his album Heroes, released the year previously, this is “Joe the Lion”

We end this unlikely trio with a song from prog’s Mr Grumpy himself, Roger Waters; this is from his 2017 dystopian treatise on modern day civilisation, Is This the Life we Really Want? and it’s called “Wait for Her”

And on that cheery note, I’ll leave you until tomorrow, when I’ll bring you three more slices of musical ephemera to sort through.

Keep safe, stay happy, be good to each other.

Peace

#1linerWeds*: Wednesday Weirdness.

Here we are again, for what is probably the final dose (for now, anyway) of Wednesday Weirdness, as the guest features for Lockdown 2020 come to an end.

I have once more been hard at work in the Return of the Internet Nobody video editing suite, (a chair in the garden) to splice together an even more FX-laden audio visual spectacular; using a greatest hits collection of my animated Instagram posts which are all, need I remind you, made using only this same single photo, soundtracked with one of my remixes.

With any luck, normal service will resume next week.

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day forty nine.

Day 49 of our audio odyssey with the Melodic Randomiser and we’re on the downhill run of the Isolation Radio show.

Just a quick one, as I have two posts to fill today.

The first tune to grace your ears is by The Black Angels and comes from their Clear Lake Forest album. Here’s “An Occurrence at 4507 South Third Street”

Next up, another bona fide pop classic from the ’80s and Soft Cell; this is their huge hit single “Tainted Love”, from the Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret album

And we end with a bit of minimal techno from Lindstrom and “Gentle as a Giant”, from It’s a Feedelity Affair

Ok, gotta run, back tomorrow.

Do good, be good, stay safe.

Peace

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day forty seven.

Looks like the final week of the strictest lockdown restrictions is now underway, meaning some of you may have returned to work already or are doing so in the next few days.

I shall not be going back until next Monday, as I’m not confident we are over the worst of it yet and I am still concerned about a possible spike in new cases over the coming week. That’s a risk I am just not prepared to take, due to Rhonda and Audrey both having health issues which put them at higher risk of serious complications from infection.

So the Isolation Radio show will continue until at least Sunday, because the Melodic Randomiser is still packed full of top tunes, such as…

…a song by Canadian oddballs, Men Without Hats, from their 1982 Rhythm of Youth album, here’s the quirky “Ideas for Walls”

After that we have a big slab of anthemic goth rock by The Sisters of Mercy, from their epic 1985 Floodland album, this is the excellent “Dominion”

And today’s third and final offering is another incarnation of Bill Nelson, this time with his short lived new wave outfit, Red Noise. This is a song from their only album, Sound on Sound, released in ’79, the slightly manic “Art, Empire, Industry”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank any of you who have tuned in for this journey through my musical memory banks, and I hope you’ll stick with me for the last few days of audio delights if you have the time.

Keep on staying safe and being good to each other, this thing is far from over and we all need to continue to do our part.

Peace

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day forty five.

What a beautiful day to be sitting in the garden with the Melodic Randomiser by my side, ready to provide a trio of tunes for today’s Isolation Radio show, easing you into your Saturday evening with…

Belly and without doubt their most famous song, the single “Feed the Tree” from 1993’s Baby Silvertooth album.

Then we turn to Thomas Dolby for an ’80s pop classic, “Hyperactive”, from his 1984 The Flat Earth album

And we finish today with a 2001 track by Sum-41; “In Too Deep” from the All Killer No Filler album

That’s your lot for this sunny Saturday, I’ll be back for your musical Sunday sermon tomorrow.

Have as good a night as you can and stay safe.

Peace
