‘It was never supposed to make that noise’

The New Curiosities Box: Show Fifteen

April 29th, 2018


In this show we meet guitar master and multi-platform experimenter Aziz Ibrahim as he takes it to another level through his Project 70: Asian Blues, we get funny and chase the jokes (and audiences) with Comedy Carousel host Andy Robinson and we stretch to the far corners of the box as we speak to Melbourne duo Sÿde about their brightly low-fi sound all the way from sunny Australia.
