The Arts Desk Radio Show 10
Peter and Joe bring you sunshine (also Amazon surf, country-soul and acid house)
Quite possibly because the sun was shining, even if it wasn’t actually warm as such, this show presented by Joe Muggs and Peter Culshaw got its groove on. There was shuffling about the NTS studio, strangers started dancing. The featured albums, by which we mean more than one track were played were the new one from Bachar Mar Khalifé, who is clearly a major talent, the debut from Los Chinches, a Peruvian Amazon surf band, who started and closed the show and an irresistible new compilation of Latin Psychedelia.
The sunny mood kept going through acid house and Forro, Kenyan 45s from the 1970s and only went a bit gloomy for Karl Hyde and Olafur Arnalds and we went on a country detour with My Darling Clementine. A trio of classics from Bobbie Gentry, Malcolm McLaren and Four Tet were played because they seemed to fit at the time.
