This is the show where we talk Japanese monkeys, bands that sound like other bands, and welcome back Chorizo Garbanzo’s much loved (by everyone other than Kicker) quiz. There’s also some footballer confusion, where some players are more abel than others.

You can hear all of that plus some cracking tunes in the newly fangled pod of two halves with the A-side here and the B-side here and there and there:

Turn away now if you don’t want to know what’s coming up. Otherwise, here’s what we played:

  1. Sakuran Zensen – Monkey O Monkey
  2. Vision Fortune – Habitat
  3. Coriky – Too Many Husbands
  4. For Abel – Yorkshire
  5. La Sera – Hold
  6. Davey Woodward & The Winter Orphans – Dylan’s Poster
  7. Boston Spaceships – German Field Of Shadows
  8. The Replacements – Within Your Reach
  9. Bobby Darin – The Proper Gander
  10. Gandhi’s Hands – Brain Bugs

The physicality:

Those all important singalong lyrics…

Monkii – O – Monkii

tokai no kawa ha, yozora okkochite

yogoreta kanashimi no kao ha utsuranai

ishikoro ketobashite atare merusedesu

kizukeba ikitomari zuibun kiteta.

anoko ha yozora wo makka ni nurikaete

anoko ha sarutachi wo makka ni nurikaete

akuma to odoru himitsu mitsuketara

takai biru kara tobu wa uketomete

anoko ha yozora wo makka ni nurikaete

anoko ha sarutachi wo makka ni nurikaete

anoko ha yozora wo makka ni nurikaete

anoko ha sarutachi wo makka ni nurikaete

Monkey O Monkey – Sakuran Zensen

(Translated by Kicker Jr)

As the night sky falls away into the city river,

It doesn’t reflect my dirty sad face.

I kick away pebbles, take that, Mercedes!

I’ve walked for a long time, if only I’d noticed the dead end.

She’s painting the night sky bright red,

She’s painting the monkeys bright red.

If you find out about the secret dance with the devil,

I’ll fly from a tall building. Please catch me.

She’s painting the night sky bright red,

She’s painting the monkeys bright red.

She’s painting the night sky bright red,

She’s painting the monkeys bright red.

  1. Many thanks to our regular correspondent, Will, who points out that Kicker was clearly suckered into one of those many scam websites hosting false information about UK #1s (or else he was hopelessly incompetent once again). Either way, the actual number 1 in the UK on the day he was born was Esther & Abi Ofarim’s Cinderella Rockefella, which goes like this…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhkpcWNdob0
