JUNIOR ASPIRIN RADIO SESSION 21 : The United States of President America Election Special


The United States of President America Election Special

Devised and presented by Dan L. Fox, with contributions from Hillary R. Clinton, Andy D.T.B. Cooke, H. Sinclair Lewis, Nathaniel M. Mellors and Donald J. Trump

As the Junior Aspirin Records label HQ moves its operations to a remote and heavily-fortified anarcho-syndicalist commune in the Pacific Northwest in anticipation of the total collapse of civic society after the 8 November election, label co-founder, writer and editor Dan Fox has made a rare trip into the city, finding time in his busy urban guerilla warfare training schedule to pop into SoHo, do a little shopping, and rig the US presidential election for this post-pre-post-truth liberal media elite conspiracy-thon. From Dead Kennedys to The Shangri-Las, from ABBA to Jay-Z, a caucus of paranoid political pundits, so desperate to be on the winning side that they'd baste their Grandmas in orange sun-tan lotion just to get ahead, will leak their most criminally top secret emails about the most tremendous electorial issues of the moment. So gather together your favourite tiny-fingered, Cheeto-faced, ferret-wearing shitgibbons and take this opportunity to grope inside America whilst you enjoy the last few weeks of electricity and running water before the pitchforks come out and the briefcase containing the nuclear codes is lost forever at JFK baggage claim. Send in the clowns!

Having relocated our production facilities to a heavily fortified and luxury redoubt deep in the Scottish highlands, Junior Aspirin Records presents The Brexpod: a balanced, neutral and wholly unbiased reflection on the misery and hopelessness inflicted on the United Kingdom by the cowardly, venal, xenophobic, meretricious, mendacious, over-privileged turdworms who, on 23rd June 2016, paddled the country up Bullxit creek and left us in a Euromess without so much as a bratwurst or baguette to gnaw on. From the country that brought you sterling classics such as The Restoration, Luddism, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, the invention of the machine gun, and the colonial subjugation of countries across the globe, the Brexpod is a three-hour epic told in broken English, and featuring Cotswold-stone-cold hits including 'Turd on the Run' by The Rolling Stones (feat. Boris Johnson) and 'Aftermath' by Tricky (feat. Nigel Farage vs. Jean-Claude Juncker). So when the clocks strike half-past France, and the stormy weather hits the pound, forget the summer beach holiday in Greece and thank The Village Green Preservation Society that you will have to learn to love Llandudno again. Kick back with the last remaining bottle of Chianti in England, finish off the tapas, complete your Irish passport application and let the Brexpod remind you and me, the perma-peasantry, that this is how it feels to be lonely.
