BALLS After Dark.65 ...Nice

Posted October 7, 2016 into Music by beeso

Separating music from its time and place (and why it's futile), share house stories, Melbourne hipsters, rubber masks, classic Black Keys and new Rival Sons and BadBadNotGood.

You can get all the tunes at the Spotify playlist and keep an eye on the favourite track for the year on The Mixtape. Get the episode here

BALLS After Dark.55 Entreduce Yourself

Posted July 22, 2016 into Music by beeso

The Doc and Beeso review the new DJ Shadow, wondering if the Doc's high school knob twiddling really gives him the insight needed for the new album, before Beeso can't make up his mind (again!) about Band of Skulls. We also talk about the slowly growing #BallsPodcastMixtape where we are collecting our favourite songs of the year. Then we agree on Doc's classic from The Stalkers. You can also hear the albums for this week and next on The Balls Podcast Playlist.

Next week we review the new sparkly favourite thing by The Avalanches and also Yung's new record as well as the CLASSIC Pornland album In the Nude.

Therbs swirls their brandy and claims...

Avalanches? No! Anything associated with DJ Dexter, even though he no longer is with them, gets the big brush off.

dweeze is gonna tell you...

I had to use BrushOff in my ears after listening to new Avalanches muck. How disappointing that a once fine band took 15 years to produce insipid pop goo.

BALLS After Dark.50 pt 2 Desert Island Dicks - Eclectic Boogaloo

Posted June 14, 2016 into Music by beeso

Yes kids it's Part 2 of our 50th Episode Desert Island Discs Spectacularrrrrrrr, in which host @Beeso, designated munter @DrYobbo and stunt butt (of many, many Def Leppard jokes) @adamhfoto bring the heat as they argue through each other's top fives. [Cue Commodore 64 crowd-cheer SFX that sounds a lot like thunderstorms on Beeso's roof.] Agenda items: Compost, more on that band that were around with the Stones, nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah nah, blind truthers, surprise metal, equal opportunity sledging, rock cheese, fake drama and midlife crises, why you should never let Mike Patton get you a drink, Journey To Somewhere, the Doc's Keef Flint Gridwalk Update, missing puzzle pieces, the McDonalds cheeseburger of music, your new favourite compilation, Axl rises, Now That's What I Call The Hottest 100, and Chinese-Australian Democracy. Sincere thanks to Adam for guesting on this very special double ep of the show, and to everyone who sent in their desert island music feels, many of which were discussed in Part 1. GET IT HERE

BALLS After Dark.50 pt 1 Desert Island Dicks

Posted June 8, 2016 into Music by beeso

THE AFTER DARK. It's Part One of our After Dark 50th Episode Desert Island Discs Spectacular! In which Beeso, Dr Yobbo and Special Guest Heather Locklear @adamhfoto talk Hottest 100s Of All Time Of Their Time, being interesting on Facebook, you say anima I say anaemia, MAHHH WAHHHFFE, the Predator unplugged, avalanche warnings and other extreme weather events, scabby junkies, Alley cats, searching for the guy from that Sugarman doco, Tori Amos PTSD, rusting out, Beeso talks to kids, that band that were around when the Stones were around, music to drive tractors to, music to get in the sea to, Beats One killed the Rdio star, caping for Lana Del Ray, young LNP thrusters, niche work if you can get it, and Fitzy's tight five. Beeso, Adam and the Doc argue for their own Desert Island Discs selections in Ep 50 Part 2, out later this week.

Thanks to all who contributed top fives, not all of whom we could squeeze into this episode (including but not limited to Mrs Beeso, Dan and Dave from At The Drive Thru, Ben Cuzzupe, Spankee, Lenny from the Brothers Stoney, Beeso's old Alley bar and stage crew, Ben Connolly, John Alexander and the poor touch footy bastards who Beeso shouts at a lot.) Special appearance from the Podfather, John Birmingham, who pops on opposite #BALLS' very own JB to talk through his list. A reminder, our special brand of ill-informed shouting and crap features alongside actual #content on Birmo's blog Cheeseburger Gothic.

Balls After Dark 48-In which Special Guest Star @adamhfoto joins the Doc to review an album his millennial coworkers picked, indicating the level of love and respect they have for him; followed by an Accidental Metallica Special, because you've got to find some way to disinfect that Lumineers shit from your ears. Chaos and shenanigans ensue....

then Balls 59 where Beeso laughs at all the completely wrong NBA finals takes he wasn't there to make, before wondering just how much The Special One will destroy MUFC and why Red Bull hates Australian F1 drivers.

Slack Balls

Beeso had some kid free days last week, so here are this weeks Balls.

BALLS! Curtains for Spurs and the Spurs, Steph is unanimously good at basketball, Rotovegas represent, and Fat Sam is a dangerous floater that refuses to be flushed. Get that here.

Then the always professional Beeso and Dr Yobbo discuss the cultural imperialism of chip packet colours, Biggie vs Starks, Beeso vs actual music reviewers, old worn-out T-shirts as a metaphor for old worn-out bands, great tyre dumps of Sydney's inner-west, and who is the Steven Adams of dub. Somewhere amongst all of that crap they also review new albums by King Gizzard and the Cat Empire, and 1985 vintage live Oils. Get that here

Another insightful and informative recap Ms B. Not as funny as some you've given us but that's hardly surprising in this time of post-Hodor grief.
