In which Beeso and the Doc pour some out for Prince, as was the fashion of the day (last Friday night, specifically.) Bring out your dead, all takes taken, Gett On (The Job), won't somebody think of the parents, partying with the Budgie, Solo Man, symbolism and fragmentation, the case for 1991, blaming Prince for MRAs, Keep Earth Weird, popping off, reefer madness, concept > reality, run the show, Insufficiently Blazed 2 B Unfazed, the case for cliches, the case for not doing your job properly, Beeso's blood feud with Katie Noonan, music to die to and The Shelf Life Of Pablo.
Reviewed this week: Pop/Homme's Post Pop Depression, The Bennies' Wisdom Machine and Beeso's classic pick, Killervision by FWTB* Salmonella Dub. Next week: The Dandy Warhols are still a thing, something called an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and the definitive 90s Australian indie album, You Am I's Hi-Fi Way. This and next week's albums are, as always, available for your listening pleasure on the BALLS Spotify playlist.
*Fucking Wellington Trumpet Band, for those who came in late
