Robotnicka, great punk fun

Tonight’s top new song was ‘Banana’ by French punks Robotnicka. It’s a marvellous splurge of techpunk, sounding a bit like ’79 Devo but with its own twist. But don’t take my word for it: since Robotnicka are lovely anarchists, you can check it out yourself by downloading it from their website here. Actually, you can get the whole album ‘Spectre En Vue…’ and it’s well worth having. I only hope they come and play somewhere in Britain soon.

Pretty soon, I’ll be compiling a list of my fave albums this year. Tonight, I played a few tunes from some of these, like Shearwater, Deerhoof and Say Hi To Your Mom. It’s been a great year for new music, one of the best I can remember. But, as good as these tunes are, they’re not really old so tonight’s top old tune was Harpers Bizarre’s version of ‘Knock On Wood.’ Beautiful!
