* Another summer holiday mix *

This week’s show is another laid-back summer holiday mix so in the absence of a studio guest you can sit back and absorb and steady stream of fresh sounds from Australia and Canada.  But we start out with a few more tracks from the perennially controversial Dayglo Abortions.  I’ve been reading Chris Walter’s super-detailed biography of the band.  It’s certainly an entertaining and sordid read.  The New Christs are up after the Dayglos as we feature some of their classic tracks and then two newies from the band’s highly anticipated and thus far well received record, ‘Incantations’.  Rob Younger on songwriting and singing duties is sounding as passionate and vitriolic as ever.
