Latest The Tube upload has an Armoury Show set &  a pre-recorded live (I'm pretty sure that's an oxymoron) version of Pink Orange Red by Cocteau Twins. If I recall correctly, it was the premiere of the song.
& it's fecking gorgeous. It's at the 1 hour 8 minute mark.

I'm sure y'all saw it already, but at least one show favorite made the NPR best 50 albums list: https://www.fark.com/goto/11953​995/www​.npr.org/2021/12/01/1054318397/the-50-​best-albums-of-2021-page-1%3Futm_sourc​e%3Dfark%26utm_medium

There may be more but I'm terrible at remembering artist names if I haven't typed them out myself at least 10 times.

On another note, according to Spotify, one of my top genres was "bubble grunge". They helpfully failed to include any examples of stuff I listened to that fell into that category, or even stuff I didn't listen to in that category.

I wasn't sure about Japanese Breakfast. I couldn't remember if I had heard it on this show, or if it was just from having popped up on my playlists. I'm also bad at remembering where I heard something, or when.

apparently...
"Numan himself says: 'The spoken part was about an incident that happened at Christmas (1978). It speaks for itself, S.U. was a person. The rest of it was about the theme, where you can buy friends - you hire them by the hour. They're electric. You ring up and say you want a friend for something - it can be for sex, for talking, whatever you want - and they'll send one along. The friends were all identical - a grey man in a long coat. Grey hair, all smoking a cigarette so that nobody knows what you've hired them for ... The song was basically about how life in the near future would be, a world of personal alienation. The song was inspired by living in tower blocks in England, I was feeling very depersonalised at the time.'"

Do we not talk about it because it causes too much joy?  Or is there another reason?
