We have decided to launch a regular podcast called ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ which will feature all manner of weird, cool, funky, whack and downright cool tracks, most of which we could never play at our club nights. Over the years we have done many radio shows and podcasts where some of our collection gets a good airing. From our other ‘show’ called VS (check it out here) to a variety of weird late night community radio shows in Sydney, we love the chance to be released from our dance, dance, dance mantra and just play what we love. So, that’s it really. A show full of that stuff. It will be pretty wide ranging. French, Spanish, Italian, German, Belgian, plus the rest of the continent. It will feature Yé–yé (of course!) plus psych, prog, rock, covers, Italian soundtracks, moog, freakbeat, garage and we might even play a bit of Eurovision. Yes, we said it. France Gall and Serge Gainsbourg won it. So it is cool. End of that debate.
We will put a show every month or so. They won’t be long. Just 30 minutes of prime cool. We would love to invite some guest DJs to the party. We would also love to play your party/club/venue/bar. You know how to contact us.
Welcome to the next tranche of French, Euro (and Japanese) bangers we have unearthed for you. This time we recognise the crate digging talents of one of our regular record dealers in France who persisted in sending me a giant package of records from his home to mine, before having Australia Post send it right […]
Bonjour! We continue our mining of the newest finds in our collection, all coming from our friend in France Instant Party, and never a truer name has been spoken for this amazing set of of hip swinging, head banging, mind blowing and foot cracking heroes of French and Euro sixties pop. We are all over […]
It is a new year and a new theme. We have updated the GBU theme to include three (count them) three different versions of the classic Morricone score, including three by the late genius himself. And if you are new to the podcast, welcome! Our purpose is to dig deep and plays cuts from across […]
Welcome to 2021! We have a huge year planned of deep cuts, rare stuff, crate dug goodies, things that costs a few euro cents to the scarce of the scarce. It won’t all be gold, but it will be banging. Whatever the case, we have dropped some mighty tracks on this show, so let’s start. […]
Two in a row, what is this? A record? We roll out another set of absolute bangers including tracks from Gainsbourg and Birkin, Italian soundtrack madness, some jugopop from Grupo 220, yé-yé from France Loubert, some Massiera psych and the French soundtrack to Hair. Streaming, flaxen and waxen. What more could a show want? How […]
We are back baby! After a long hiatus, the Babypop collectif had returned to drop some new show, digging deep into the crates of the rare and unheard. On this show we forswear vinyl and pilot our mothership into reissues and CDs we have picked up over the years. Sure its cheating, but hey, when […]
Night 2 of the lockdown DJ series presented by the Babypop crew, this week featuring the best of noneties Britpop and UK banging faves. Yuo, it’s a bit of a GH tour, but nostaligia is always 20/20. This is pretty much the set that DJ Ringfinger blasted out on FB live easter Saturday, tidied for […]
The Babpypop crew bring you a one off (until next time) DJ night, broascast live on Facebook Saturday 4th April. Featuring a hand picked set of all vinyl (by handpicked, we mean what Ringfinger could find in the first box or two in his garage, we decided that who cares if we are all in […]
Welcome to the bank holiday weekend edition of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly brought to you by at least one member of the Babypop crew. The others are either asleep in the backyard or on a retreat on the fringes of western society trying ‘find themselves’. Jacques Dutronc – On Rous Cache tut, […]
