The Listening Club - 20th November 2016

Greetings folks,

Everything grey, wet and grim right now, fortunate though to have a cracking weekend of music to keep us positive and on-point; Mark Pritchard was in most excellent DJ form on Friday night, starting with ambient, folk, post-rock and dub, building to a ragga and jungle climax that stretched the leg muscles considerably. Last night we had a whole different bag of totalitarian boogie at the premiere of Laibach's "Liberation Day" documentary of their visit to play in North Korea, with a cracking set from the band themselves after. And today tapping this out early so we can scoot out for a good lunch and then an 8 hour set from The Necks and their friends, celebrating the band's 30th Anniversary. Get it whilst it's there folks!

Last week @wojsvenwoj was in an understandably fiery mood, stoking the flames with his pick of "Avengers" by, erm, Avengers, which sounded highly zeitgeisty, despite being nearly 40 years old. Thanks to Woj for the pick, and for sailing the frisb across to @JimMcCauley, who's here with the pre-match...

"I don't think I've picked a DJ mix album before, so let's see about that tonight. No crazy turntablism, just some mad Ableton skills and a bunch of great tunes; I think I'm mainly picking this one, over a whole bunch of other albums by the same artist that I could have chosen, because of the stunning remix around the 40 minute mark.

"Basically: this year, eh? It's put me right in the mood to just get mashed up and dance all night, and I'd be very happy indeed if this album dropped around 2AM. Enjoy!"

Okaydoke. Direct download is here, and the potentially-spoiler-ridden HearThis stream is....

See you at 8pm GMT!
