The Tramp's Jukebox Puri: Top Of The Pods Rundown!


If you haven't been listening to the groundbreaking Keep Calm And Curry On podcast – shame on you! – then you might be forgiven for assuming that the The Tramp's Jukebox Puri had finally packed in and toddled off to the great lounge bar in the sky – but you'd be wrong. I now crank up the old girl every single month as Trampy and I round off the inimitably hilarious-yet-insightful blend of news, views and reviews that is KCACO with an Indian-related track plucked from the archives. With five episodes of what we've been calling "the world's only curry podcast" in the bag and a sixth imminent, here – in reverse order – is what you've missed. Now then, now then, it's a Top Of The Pods rundown! (And you can click on each headline to hear the full podcast episode.)

Our highest new entry this week comes from the lovely Salma Agha who's stormed into the KCACO chart with this deep slice of dubbed-out disco, straight from the early 80s ...

Dutch sitar spaceman Okko Bekker continues his ascent up the charts with this rocking eastern riff on Hendrix – you can almost hear the horns in the background ...


video

Things can only get Bekker as the spaceman is back with a second entry in the top five, a cosmically soothing ode to the destroyer himself (or herself, according to Trampy): Shiva!


video

Holding steady at number two is legendary jazz bassist, sitar master and bandleader of the Cosmic Brotherhood – it's Bill Plummer's smooth cover of Bacharach classic The Look Of Love ...

And right up there as the first ever KCACO Jukebox Puri track is everyone's favourite fruit-munching (and occasionally chilli-eating) green dinosaur, Yoshi, with a catchy little curry-themed ditty from the N64 classic Yoshi's Story ...

There you have it! That's what we've been grooving to on The Tramp's Jukebox Puri over the last few months. So if you like what you've heard, tune in to future episodes of Keep Calm And Curry On for more mindbending sitar discoveries ... and if you've got a hidden gem of a track that you think we could feature then get in touch by dropping us an email. Jangle jangle, tunery tunery ...
