About the show

Playing tracks by

Skream, NVR-NDR, Ming & Ping, Meat beat manifesto, Jajouka Soundsystem and more.

Today's show was inspired by a piece by Banksy, courtesy of Art of the State. As you can see, we have what we can safely assume is a fairly well-to-do, middle-aged white male gazing thoughtfully of some graffiti that simply reads "BORING." Given Banksy's meteoric rise from obscurity to a cult following art world darling it's safe to assume that this is Banksy wry commentary on art, culture, media and fame.

Banksy's piece also reminds me of something Elvis Costello once said: "writing about music is like dancing for architecture." As the host of this show that comments makes me feel a little uncomfortable. While I may not be writing about music I am dangerously flirting with pomposity when I interview the guests who grace the show. There have been a few times one one of the people I am interviewing feels exasperated talking about their music. Sometimes it's almost ineffable.
