Lollards Podcast7 comments • 563 views

Freaky Trigger’s radio escapades continue to The Next Level. Here’s the episode as originally broadcast on Resonance 104.4FM between 7 and 8pm earlier this evening.

HAIR, sprouting from a new location. Hosted by Mark. What has gone before? (And why?) Britney has a plan. Kat’s entirely explicable Victorian hair fixation and a dubious graph. Magnus’s doffable clothing. New Seeker’s Pinball Wizard. The Teen Forecast. 2 Unlimited. Katie susses sunseed. And announcing the Midweek Number One…

Specially brought to you from us, the good people at :-)

Cooking With An Espresso Machine

FT + Proven By Science + Pumpkin Publog5 comments • 596 views

Hope to have time to blog the various gastronomic delights of our weekend in San Sebastian / Donostia soon. But just to bear in mind that this small Spanish town and its environs have more Michelin stars than anywhere else in the world. You can pick them up ont he pavement*. But a google for Txocoli, the local semi-wine drink brought up this gorgeously illustrated webpage of an expo by ten of the the best Donostian chefs. A bit of molecular gastronomy is going on here, but most exciting is the innovation of cooking using fruit juice from an espresso machine. Awesome!

*Sorry, just been told that they were Milky Way Stars.

This evening at 7PM on Resonance FM, we’re proud to announce the return of Freaky Trigger And The Lollards Of Pop, our hour-long radio show which mixes talk, music, insight and foolishness in arbitrary amounts.

Here’s what the scheduler says:

“New day, new slot, same foolish game: brainy people wasting their gifts and your time in the best ways they can think of! Serious about the silly stuff, silly about the serious, the interweb’s one sane collective starts up again on air, to do once more what it does best: lolling in the high church of low culture, dropping science so you can pick it up again. This week live from the radio room on the Kon Tiki, the Victorian world of fizzog fungi, HATS! where they went and will they return? plus the Advert Scientician Handwaving Awards…

Host: Mark Sinker. Guests: Kat Stevens, Magnus Anderson, Katie Grocott plus Eli Sessions on knobs and Texan charm.”

Listen to us online at the Resonance link. We’re on every week until well into the New Year and there’s a lot of good stuff planned.

One advance warning: next week the show falls on No Music Day, as decreed by Bill Drummond. We will not be breaking the music ban on air, but we WILL be uploading certain tracks to the FT server so you can fill in the musical gaps yourselves. Watch this space for that, and for details of a tentative lollard toe-poke into social networking.

But in the meantime, here is a little compilation to wet your appetite for tonight.

7. Mello Core – Good Feeling 

Another great transition here – the final note of ‘Something Good’ dies out, exhausted after the Saints’ techno onslaught. In floats a soothing female voice over dreamy strings: “And my mind’s wide open baby, I won’t let this feeling go…” Hippy mush celebrating the pleasurable effects of substance abuse, perhaps –
