Hi all! This week’s Deep Cuts, is going to be a swashbuckler …

And what is swashbuckling? Well, if I could tell you, you’d be the first to know. What I do know is that ‘swashbuckling’ has a lot to do with the sea and not a whole lot in common with buckles or swashes, and so does this week’s Deep Cuts!

So, I think this theme came to Mike and me through repeated sessions of Robert Wyatt’s Rock Bottom and perhaps even Cardiacs’ seafaring adventures at the Seaside, aboard “Big Ships”, On Land and in the Sea, or even “Shaping the River” with The Sea Nymphs. Or maybe it was visiting Long Island for the first time last April and getting to hear the waves crash against the beach for the first time in my life. Either way, we both realized that – like the animals theme of yestershow – our musical heroes dug all things wet and aquatic, just like we do.

A note that Mike did appear on this show, but a technical snafu meant that I lost 2/3's of the recording and had to rerecord the intros.

Really good show. Great to hear The Cardiacs and interesting additional information about artists played.


Thanks Tim!
