Amen Andrews, Oozing Wound, Vessel, The Skull Defekts, Paula Temple and more.
This show was 28th in the global alternative chart.
Not exactly a programme packed with yuletide favourites, but still a good one (I hope).
Guaranteed to kick those office parties into full swing, we've got Luke Vibert as his junglist alter ego Amen Andrews, thrash monsters Oozing Wound, post-punk sounds from The Skull Defekts and Useless Eaters.
From Brazil there's a new 7" from Rakta; from Mali a taster of the forthcoming Songhoy Blues album; and even Christmas tune from King Scratch from the Caribbean.
Off-kilter dance-floor compositions come from Vessel, Paula Temple Sully, Happy Meals, The Cyclist, and Silent Servant. Plus pummelling techno from AnD and Franck Vigroux, warped hip hop from Strange U, and the incredible debut of 18 year old South London composer named Jire.
There's always some dub and reggae to warm your chilly December nights from Natural Numbers, Tuff Scout All Stars, a new tape from Hieronymus.
Finally, bringing the sleigh bells and spreading festive cheer, it's none other than ... Captain Beefheart.
