Playing tracks by
The Purple Gang, The Crimea, David Shrigley and The Art Attacks.
In this month's surreal odyssey into all things slightly off-kilter, Mark checks out some of the releases to be found on the 1 bit Wonder label, takes a wander around London's Soho in search of new sounds, and finally, lacerates his toe on one of the table legs in his home studio. Mark's featured artist for this month is the legendary psychedelic jug band 'The Purple Gang' who's 1967 debut single, 'Granny takes a trip' became the first record ever to be banned by the BBC. He'll be playing a selection of tracks from their brand new disc, 'The Butterfly Sessions' recordings that John Peel really wanted to happen, but unfortunately didn't live long enough to hear.
In addition to this, he plays new music from 'The Lawn Grower', Synth.NL and Shrigley, as well as a bunch of old favourites from 'The Cardiacs', 'Drink Me' and 'Frog Pocket'. So log on and 'tune in' to the show that has been described as 'Weirder than a cup of left-handed Donkey Bovril'.
