Tom Robinson Tom Robinson | 01:00 UK time, Sunday, 21 August 2011

Real Fur with Tom Robinson Tom with tonight's interview guests Real Fur.

Sunday morning's guests were the East London trio Real Fur, who entertained us with tales of their nationwide tour of… laundrettes. Performing cheek by jowl with washing machines and dryers is the way to go if you're really after a party attmosphere, they tell us - with many proprietors tending to share the unconventional renegade spirit of the band and their fellow travellers under the Safari Funk umbrella.  A new single is due in October, but first comes Hackney City Farm where Real Fur and their friends plan their next musical safari among assorted domestic animals including (we're told) an unfeasibly large pig.

We also repeated the sublime session tracks performed live by Chad Valley for Jo Good when she was sitting in for Lauren Laverne back in June 2011 for Jo Good. Of course we knew him on this show before he was famous - back when he was mostly known as Hugo Manuel, frontman with the Oxford combo Jonquil. These performances sounded even better than his records: synth-led electronica with gentle understated vocals - right up our street. 

And the second half of the show included a trio of out, loud and proud tracks from One Night Stand In North Dakota, plus - in honour of UK Black Pride 2011 this weekend - Musa Okwonga's startling new outfit The King's Will and ROKK with Dean Atta on a track specially created for a 1Xtra Documentary made in collaboration with the grime website SBTV. And who could resist a second helping of Ottowa's Ninety Pounds Of Ugly with their cheerfully outrageous Take Your Pants off Johnny?
