Heat wave

Martha Reeves singing Heat Wave

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

Phew, what a scorcher. Well, in this part of the world anyway. No doubt our British listeners are inside with central heating on full blast, waiting for the rain to stop so they can go out and wash the car. So let's have 50 minutes of blistering tracks about heat. Chris Stamey has been on before on the power pop programme, but this is a first outing on the TUWSJ for the original industrialists Throbbing Gristle. (Update: R.I.P. Peter Christopherson).
