We had to exit sometime.And here we are?Creeping out of this pandemic and hoping that we don’t have to do another radio show.I’ve been out and about, walking through Dublin town and seeing people again in public, so it feels like the emergence is on.I’ve heard that the amazing Little Simz is coming over and doing a gig so I’d like to see some of you there.We have a little bit of nostalgia for the rage exuded from Nirvana back in 1991 with Nevermind – 30 years ago. I finish with a desire for us to seize this opportunity to change the way that we live / and how we operate.
News: This may well be the last show. It looks that way andAndrew say’s that we need to remain cautious – given what is going on in the UK, and the fact that our hospitalisation rate is not falling, but this could have something to do with hospital outbreaks.But with 90% of all people – over the age of 12 – this means that we are relying on that impressive figure to protect us from the worst outcomes.Andrew talks about this as a slow uncertainity – as we settle into a very plateaued figures since the start of July.So maybe this is how it ends, and you don’t hear from us again.We would hope that if we return it is with news of the resistance to how the world currently operates, as we build for a future which is a break from where we are now.
New music in this show from the amazing inspiring Little Simz. We leave the best wine till last with two tracks from the new Low album which has harmony and distortion all in one, for me it seldom gets any better.So listen out for that.In the news it looks like we are finally coming to the end of this long run of Plague Tapes…
News: Andrew tells us that the ‘Emergency’ is over.So he has called it, and gives us details in relation to the fact that we have over 90% of the Adult population and we continue to eat into the unvaccinated population, 440,000 elegible to be vaccinated and we vaccinated 18,847 of them which is 4.3%.So these are all important – because this is the easy route to immunity.We are the highest adult population which is fully vaccinated in Europe and we are still higher up there with the incidence of the virus.5 day case average 1320.

Much like the old Rock Jihad Night in the International Bar, tonight’s show is full of cracking tunes and ridiculous stories told over the course of an increasingly incoherent evening.
Tune in, turn it up way too loud, sit two feet in front of your speakers and try to talk to the person next to you, drink your weight in whatever lager you have on hand (make sure to piss on the floor of your own jacks), and you’ll be transported back to those heady Friday nights down in the basement of the Inter.
Tune in for the following bands, played in a completely different order:
Metallica, Big Black, Motorhead, Cunts, Red Fang, Coilguns, White Hills, Ho99o9, Wolfmother, Naked Raygun, The Melvins, Pere Ubu, Joe Jackson, Slift, Wizards of Firetop Mountain, Sunnata, Wipers
Dr. Groove brings you a show with music for Michael K Williams, the actor who brought Omar in our lives through The Wire.If you have not seen this series, then take the time to do an undergraduate course in sociology whilst looking at the layers and intersections that make up modern life in a collapsing system.It’s brilliant, and justifiably hailed as the the best of TV.
We start off with a tribute paid to him by his fellow actor [Bunk] Wendell Pierce.
How you expect to run with the wolves come night, when you spend all day sporting wit’ the pupplies? Omar [The Wire]
News: Andrew tells us about the uncertain period which is this coming out of the Covid.The facts are that we are in a unique position, being highly vaccinated, 90% of Adults, and also have a huge incidence rate of 443 per 100,000 which has us leading the EU.So whilst 14 day and 4 day avearages are coming down, we still have the issue of what do we do with the under 12’s who are back in school and can only develop immunity though getting it.How is this going to work -> and what are the costs.Press conferences are not happening and is there a strategy which looks at this and why is it not being dealt with or discussed.Is it that discussion would lead to disuption of the narrative that we are ‘coming out of this’ ?These are the questions and debates that one should have in civic society but they would rather treat you like children.

With so many now passing it is hard to stay optimistic. LEE ‘SCRATCH’ PERRY’S death last week at the age of 85 was particularly hard to take. In future programmes I’ll try to ‘scratch’ the surface of his career playing the occasional gem. This edition of O Vibes opens with the Upsetter and follows with a slew of tracks from a range of other artists. For more information please go to https://dj-iano.blogspot.com
