Rave horns at the ready...DJ Rules wants to take you back to 1992 and requests that you to don your day-glo dungarees and throw some shapes...electro, jungle drum & bass and acid house all get a look in. Fortunately Dr Volume is on hand to provide some indie records as well. Featuring Madlib, Hood, Special Request, Lee Gamble, Capricorn, Laetitia Sadier, Future Sound of London, Meat Beat Manifesto, The Three Disciples, Edvard Graham Lewis, Tony Lee, Everything But The Girl, Walter Gibbons
Leave your preconceptions at reception and set your Flangers to stun because here comes another irregular missive from Medium Wave towers. We trawl for gems from the forgotten corners of the larder of rock and pop and boy have we got a selection for you...including Officer!, Kleenex, Gruff Rhys, Hate, Bill Hailey & The Comets, Charlotte Church (yes that one), Shades of Rhythm, The Cardiacs, Crash Course in Science, Pale Saints, Sadistic Mika Band and The Soundcarriers.
This episode we find DJ Rules in a New York state of mind. He's been digging deep into US post-punk, Funk No-Wave and come out with his head wedged inside the Big Apple and a big Konk where his nose should be. Don't worry, Dr Volume is on hand to mix things up a bit so expect the usual genre hopping mash up and we end with some proper blissed out shoegazey vibes as usual. Find out if we figure out how to pronounce Jean-Michel Basquiat and find out there's more to Was Not Was than 'Walk the Dinosaur'. The tunes come from Cheatahs, Konk, The Cravats, Suicide, Younghusband, Was Not Was, Finitribe, Loose Joints, Demdike Stare, Chrome, LFO, E.S.G and Snowbird.
Join us, amid a flurry of Lobster flavoured crisps in DJ Rules' electro-shed for more top pop chat, air guitar/air bass and air keyboards, Ken Bruce style Pop quiz questions and we even have time to play tracks from Rupie Edwards, Joanna Gruesome, Slaughter & The Dogs, μ-Ziq, Lizard, Lanterns on the Lake, Jeb Loy Nichols, Mark Pritchard, Apache Dropout, The Beach Boys, Quasimoto, Kiran Leonard, Os Mutantes and Autechre.

In spite of DJ Rules sporting a single glove like Michael Jackson/Alvin Stardust due to an injury sustained in a bizarre gardening accident, we're firing on all cylinders with this one.

Stockholm Monsters, The Ravens Rock Group, Frank Bretschneider, Adam and the Ants, Daughter, Ifan Dafydd, The Fall, Dub Tractor, These New Puritans, UK Decay, Jagwar Ma. 2 Bad Mice, Deerhunter, Roy Brooks and the Artistic Truth.
