IT’S GOT A BABOON ON THE COVER
So this was a different, difficult one to do.
Like the rest of the world, the two of us find ourselves currently in lock down, and resultingly engaged in a bit of a catch up via Skype…
Yes yes y’all, inevitably, anything JG can do, Bushie can do waay better..and so welcome to the SECOND Grump related online radio show!! LITTLE PLASTIC RADIO!!
PS: there’s a podcast on the way too, I swear.
Hello my little shower of shit! While the epidemic has temporarily forced the cogs of the Grump machine to halt (ie: while we’re trying to figure how to do this thing from two different locations), we thgouth we’d give you a little something to keep you entertained. And so behold..THE GRUMP SONG CHALLENGE and a new episode of J’s “Destroyed Human” show
Awakening from our seasonal hibernation, the Grumps reconvene to discuss the golden era of alternative music on television via the pivotal work of Snub TV, Alternative Nation and The Word in getting underground sounds into suburban Irish homes.
Welcome back fellow spooks as we launch Season 2 with our second Halloween Hoedown! We also briefly hit on the Banana Splits movie, the secret history behind a Goth -lite movie musician, and call out the entire Irish metal scene for being Motley Crue loving posers..all before revealing a sinister twist that will leave you reaching for the phone to call your local exorcist. Oh also we have the best guest cameo ever. EVER. Read on for more.
In the final episode of what we’ve now decided is our first season we shoot the breeze about Jawbreaker’s return, Fugazi’s best gig, Scott Walker’s passing, John Mulvaney’s cheeky side, the secret parentage of Aussie synthpunks Nun, and explain why we’ve been so busy. We also encourage you to donate equipment to Girls Rock.
We delve into Jonas Akerlund’s “truth and lies” movie of the black metal’s most famous doomed bromance.
