Plus, Radiohead shows us some fake plastic trees, which makes a great segue to Plastic Bertrand giving us some 70s Belgian punk. Tune in and enjoy – it’s eclectic, it’s alternative, it’s just great music!
This week, Brainwaves takes to the trees with a set of swinging monkey music from the chimps over at the Counting Crows, the Dickies, Jonathan Coulton, the Beatles, the Banana Splits (who had a man in a monkey suit starring as one of the ‘Splits) and, of course, the Monkees.
