Awkward Movements on NTS – 24.12.16

Here’s the Christmas Eve NTS show from you’re good friends at Awkward Movements. I’m not sure why I’ve started by labeling it with Christmas Eve, as there’s no mention of the holidays in it, nor end of year lists (seriously, some of these end of year shows started December 1st before some of the best tracks came out) – just heat. Including Mor Thiam (above) who’s Dini Safarrar (Drums Of Fire) LP has been reissued from 1973 to 2016 on Jazzman.

It’s essential listening if you’ve not picked it up. And here’s the crazy thing, many years ago when I was working across the hall from Gerald’s cave of records I remember seeing the original of this on his wall. Glad I finally got to not only listen to it but own a copy as well.

Ras G appears twice (we’ve rinsed him in 2016), a cut from the Gas boxset (worth the money), Malcolm Pointon experiments on Public information and loads more. Full track list below, just underneath the stream.

As a side note, we’re thinking of making the Muslimgauze tribute show we did last year an annual thing. It seems that Bryn Jones is still a central figure in what we do, and has been since Paul and I started playing records together (though back then it was more to each other). Plus everyone seemed to like and in a matter of weeks other people’s tributes were popping up everywhere, even back on NTS.

So this is a shout out for anyone that might have rare audio, stills or just a request of what they’d like to see in it and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
