Lonely Stretch

Presented by Nick Brown
This programme has been archived.

A fortnightly wander along a trail of primordial gunk, head-nod fuzz, goo goo muck and primitive pulse.

From the scorched-earth sound of outsider Australian rock to the paranoia of synth punk. Things that throb and drone. Noise that strips paint from the walls. Anthems of introspection. Slow burners. Floor clearers ...

Bands like Spacemen 3, Primitive Calculators, Suicide, The Stabs, Endless Boogie, The Victims, Forces, Exhaustion, Boards of Canada, The Triffids, Wooden Shjips, Nun, Deaf Wish and Factory Floor all find a home here.

So do stranger fruits from house, stoner, kraut and techno from time to time; themes of isolation, dedication, lust, longing and separation.
