VS 2012 is back for another show. They said we’d never make it, but finally we pulled through. Yes, we can’t believe it! The most amazing thing has happened. Our second show!! Well, we’d like to thank WhatYouWant Radio, and Jebus, and Blowfly and, yes, how could I forget, us. We rock. Ego is not a dirty word.
We also offer a hearty VS ! hola¡ to our brand new DJ, ‘DJ SCSI’. Arisen from the fires of Mt MF Doom, she has taken her place at the right hand of the troika. Bejewelled and beautiful she… actually, who the hell are we kidding? It’s just our old SCSI with a new ribbon cable and sexier heels. Oh well, next time perhaps.
(i) (esp. of a change or distinction) So delicate or
precise as to be difficult to analyze or describe.
(ii) (of a mixture or effect) Delicately complex and understated.
(iii) NOT VS 2012. No way. Nuh-uh. You kidding me?
What a mix of outright hedonism, strange psychedelic masterpieces and Australian double entrendre we have for you this week. We kick off with a world triple with tracks from Iran, Mexico and Het Neder. Noted Dutch ‘author’ Xaviera Hollander discusses the merits of polishing a bar top., which can only be followed by Australian band Skyhooks celebrating onanism by using pretty much every piece of slang for the holy practice they can muster. ‘Average Inadequacy’ is Australian indie dance from 1982 and is backed a piece of Australian Underground by the Particles. Madlib breaks out the raga beats and disco crew Lipstique channels Piero Umiliani (and Animal). A breakdown of French masculine folie ensues with Polnareff, Dutronc and Hallyday sprouting forth large gushes of la testosterone (and Jimmy
Page guitar licks on Psychedelic). Finally after an encounter with ‘le verge de satan’ (go on, google it) we round out the set with some psych with the Pleasure Seekers from ’65, some murder country with Psycho and finally a plea to allow a child some dignity and respect especially from his half-naked mother by Troy Hess. SCSI makes her presence felt at the end with a tribute to Estonia and their many, many Eurovision triumphs. So there you have it, VS 2012 plays fast and loose with your ears, your brain, your duodenum and your own folie (and perhaps verge).
