Wax! Crackle! Pop!

Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #24: Mancunian Candidates or Do the mancurian chicken

Monday, May 19

We remember Ian Curtis as he passed on from this world 34 years ago tonight. We pay tribute by revisiting the seminal Joy Division and some other Manchester contemporaries of their day. In addition, DJ Jim G keeps it dicey with other sonic dips and turns as lethargy sneaks in and threatens control in the interzone. Chickens do dance infinitely, Ian… (RIP)
