Balls 53 and BALLS After Dark 43

Posted April 22, 2016 into Music by beeso

Beeso and Dr Yobbo do a conscise and relevant (right up until the first night of games) breakdown of the start of the NBA finals and still manage to wedge in some mountain bike, F1 and soccccccer. Get that here

Then in the After Dark, we break format to talk festivals and why they are so retro, whether the Avalanches will ever do a second album and the Doc watches Coachella. Get that here

This week we will probably have a bit of a chat about Prince, considering the news, so drop us a facebook line here or tweet us @theballspodcast if you have any cool memories or sweet youtube links.

Man, the hits just keep coming. Lemmy, Weiland, Wright, Bowie and now Prince. His own catalogue aside, check out his guitar solo at the George Harrison tribute on the toobz. Fucking epic.
Link already flicked to Balls Facebook.

Prince today, and also (on a slightly different note) Victoria Wood yesterday. Bowie at the beginning of the year. Can someone check on Springsteen & Tina Turner? I feel as if The Dark Side is threatening my childhood favourites.

Think on the bright side. Glen Campbell turned 80 today. Perhaps he's got a few more tunes up his sleeve.And before you all scoff, have you heard Cassandra Wilson's 'Wichita Lineman'?cassandra wilson wichita lineman youtube

Oh Quokka! Thank you for that! I have never experienced Cassandra Wilson before. ..what a revelation! Glen Campbell has always been in my world (especially after marrying a cowboy type...yeah got over that) but that voice! And I have spent a bunch of time just listening to that rumbling glorious timbre...wow.

BALLS After Dark.39 Two Nurofen, one scotch, one beer

Posted March 17, 2016 into Music by beeso

In a tremendously shambolic After Dark your friends and mine, Beeso and the Doc, get into abusing drugs, production values, disregarding the Beatles, despising the Fauves, Vale Festy Hall, seabin redux, dogs are the best people, Ronseal, sonic youths, therapy?, releasing all the things, grow up Australia, the Kendrick Moratorium (not a Robert Ludlum book), going in to Sin City, bad accents and why you should buy our T-shirts. Then, in a very special all-new After After Dark your correspondents dive into blockbuster music, difficult artists, busking with Dave Graney and having access to ALL THE MUSIC IN THE WORLD. This week we reviewed new albums from Wolfmother and Yuck, and an orchestrally accompanied classic from Portishead live in NYC. Next week: Urthboy, the DMAs and the D4 from 2005. As always, this and next week's selections are on the BALLS Spotify playlist. by Dr Yobbo, probably still drunk.

BALLS After Dark.37 Reverse Patreon

Posted March 2, 2016 into Music by beeso

In which Beeso and Dr Yobbo (still whinging about his manflu) talk Beesoap, pleasurable drives, playing to the crowd, the blame game, peak cock, Very L.A., the Doc can't remember which RHCP album he's talking about, pornographic basslines, skipping practice, Adam is wrong (although he's right about this), headphone lust, Also Very L.A., all that you'd pay good money to leave behind, the Simpsons vs King Wally, Kanye vs Molly vs Lexapro, competitive drug abuse, and getting it right in the orchestras. Album reviews this week were the Jezebels' Synthia, Buckcherry's unironically titled latest Rock 'N' Roll and RHCP's 1991 classic Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Next week we get the Frights, troll boomers from the Hilltops with an orchestra, and crank a recent Australian classic by The Vasco Era. As always, this week and next's tunes are on the BALLS Spotify playlist. by Dr Yobbo
