Jumping The Gap Show 25 April 2012
No More War!
It was the ANZAC Day holiday here in Australia, commemorating those killed in battles. While putting together the show I came across a great photo of a demo with Quaker-pacifists carrying a banner which read: "Quakers Oppose All War". It seemed apt given the holiday theme & the fact I'd just been reviewing the fantastic new Quakers LP - which is a 3-way collaboration between producers Geoff Barrow (Portishead), 7Stu7 & Sydney's own Katalyst. Released on the Stones Throw label, it also features 39 guest MCs & a massive 41 tracks. So we hear a few tracks from it today (more to follow in coming weeks) & end with Timmy Thomas' evergreen mantra "No more war, no more war... Why can't we live together..." Lest we forget! In between there's more hip hop, including a French flashback, more of those Killer Funk edits (a reggae one even), new Kiwi-dub via the Black Seeds, plus two kinds of "soul power". All the best for your weekend... Paris
