Episode 59 The Home Spun Sessions: The Bikini Beach Band

The fabulously flambuoyant Bikini Beach Band rock their surf noir sound for the Home Spun Sessions. This was a crazy gig recorded at the Red Hot Grind Show in Shoreditch.

  • Japanese Gentlemen stand up please! Tightening up and funking out with The Yellow Magic Orchestra.
  • Head Saucier, Googie Rene rocks the sleazy beatnik beats. We learn the difference between a titty-shaker and a grind. One not to forget!
  • The classic flatshare: Robert Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith. More punk than Johnny Rotten!
  • One micro-cosmic year: Youth Culture: Blink and you miss it.
