Sometimes on The 404 Special, no matter how hard we try, the already tenuous thematic links between songs completely break down.
For example, planning for this edition began with the rough description Consumer Goods, then adopted an even-rougher episode title of How We Spend Our Disposable Income, before resting on the frankly awkward House and Home, and the Things We Fill it With. Which was all very well until we got to the last track and realized - way too late - that it was a song about voyeurism, rather than window coverings.
Despite this, today's tracks still manage to complement each other remarkably well, we think. So perhaps it is best to consider today's show as an audio equivalent of aesthetically-pleasing interior design.
