X-Ray Moon

On my show this month:
Monkey Say Monkey Do
This month X-Ray Moon has compiled a programme that he has called 'Nirvana Etcetera', which is dedicated to the memory of Kurt Cobain who sadly died thirty years ago on 5th April 1994.
In this programme we are presented with a sprinkling of a few of Nirvana's best tracks (though how does one choose one from another – since so many of them are fabulous?!). We are also presented with some of Nirvana's contemporaries from around the Seattle, USA, area; as well as some rather splendid, shocking and rare cover versions of some of Nirvana tracks. Finally, we are treated to tracks from a selection of Kurt’s favourite albums.
This is X-Ray Moon’s dedication to Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
Enjoy!

On the show NEXT month:
This month X-Ray Moon is taking summer seriously ...
Mixing, as he always does, some old fab tracks with what he considers to be some of the best of the new.
We even, as is always a wonderfully nostalgic pleasure mixed with sadness, get to once again hear the voice of John Peel as he introduces Martin Pig.
We get a marvellously eclectic mix with Nico, David Bowie, and Talking Heads - as some of the older tracks or re-releases. We are treated to Squid, Kat Collins, Kara Delik, the wonderful – keeping the spirit of out-on-the-edge Punk alive – Poundland.
Moon suggests we drink cold tea and warm ice cream to tracks by: Corridor, Redd Kross, and Bibi Club ... and he helpfully plays the words of the Dadaist Poet Tristan Tzara that instruct us on how to write a Dadaist Poem…
He also states that anyone who happens to write a Dadaist Poem while listening to his show should send them in, and he might read one or two of them on his next show ...
Enjoy!!!

Biography:

Music both old and new. My tendency has always been to be attracted to the 'different', the other, the subversive… something that in one way or another challenges authority or orthodoxy and somehow attempts to shape wider society. Whether that be Punk, two-tone, Krautrock, Rai… etc.
In addition to that though I quite simply enjoy discovering the new, the different and the strange. Sounds, voices and atmospheres from around this small globe we call home are what excite me...
Over the years I have lived in many different countries, and wherever I was John Peel was the background, for many years, that aurally lit-up my adventures. He so perfectly reminded us that the quality, importance and worth of something has nothing to do with its 'popularity', and more to do with how it breaks down barriers and makes the complacent feel uncomfortable. How music at its best can be so much more than just a wallpaper-friendly pop song. So, then, eternal thanks to John Peel, who helped mould many of us…
Plus, thanks for listening. It is a great pleasure and joy to bring these shows to you; I hope you enjoy what you hear.
