Show 3 – 21/04/2016

On this week’s The Quietus hour we’ve a new slot called Persuasion, whereby we want YOU to get in touch with us to cajole us into playing a song you’re particularly loving at the moment. Full details if you listen in, but if you’re a lazy swine here’s the basics – you can call 020 3393 6395 and leave a message persuading us to play a song of your choice on the next show.

John gives details of what is and isn’t expecting on the show, along with a new analysis of the latest in music news and our first film review slot.

There’s also the best new music from Daniel Patrick Quinn, Selvhenter, Gaika, Eva Bowen, Xiu Xiu doing Twin Peaks and Marissa Nadler, plus a new life-saver Velvet Underground cover by Brian Eno, ANOTHER cover of Do You Think I’m Sexy, Coil and Barıs Manco & Kurtalan Ekspre.

That’s not to mention the chat you love on Luke’s battles with woodpeckers in Epping Forest, England’s Hidden Reverse, brutal piratical death methods and Spencer’s new record shop in Margate.

Show 2 – 13/04/2016

Could it be? COULD IT BE? We have made two consecutive episodes of The Quietus Radio Hour with nothing going wrong? Electromagnetic pulse detonation between typing this and the show going live notwithstanding, it seems we might have. On this week’s programme we play new music from Tom Cohen, Underworld and PJ Harvey’s stunning new album (this week’s Lead Review) alongside tracks from Jackie Lynn, Fumaça Preta, Yossarians and Susso.

We’ve also got a 1980 Turkish disco cover of ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy’! AND speaking of having the horn, Luke discusses a weekend spent blowing Celtic instruments up in Scotland and why Romans hate free jazz, and there’s more sausage-plated chat on John’s failing memory, Laibach, and Wayne The Fireman’s four course pizza meal.

Oh yeah, and we reveal the modern-day ‘Stairway To Heaven’.

Show 1 – 07/04/2016

As has become an annual tradition at tQHQ, we have decided to start a weekly radio show, called The Quietus Hour, dedicated to bringing you the best in new music. Thanks to the organisational skills of our former producer the Noble Paul Noble and the liquid skills of our current producer, Seb White, here is our first show of this year, with *crosses both fingers behind back, faces north and stands on one leg* each consecutive show to go out live on a Wednesday afternoon.

Quietus editors John Doran and Luke Turner surf a cresting wave of liquid chat for sixty minutes peppered with new music by ILL, Arabrot, Anna Meredith, Kiran Leonard, Jessy Lanza, Zayn and Fat White Family; not to mention copper bottomed exclusives by Billy Childish, Knifeworld and the first ever airing of the Gary Numan/John Foxx collaboration ‘Talk (Are You Listening To Me?)’.

Pour yourself a cup of chai and pull up a pouffe – it’s going to be luxurious.
