Salford Music Scene – 30th August 2011

This show focuses on the band that have contributed to our latest free download which is available from September 1st ….. Sandells

  • Sandells – Hell In Heaven – Session Track – recorded live in Studio 2 last year, i’m still trying to work out how we got a drum kit, bass player, guitarist and keyboard player in the studio – featuring Dave Thom as special guest on the keys. Sandells is Tim Lyons (bass, vocals) Johann Kloos (guitar, vocals) and Brian Benson (drums).
  • Sandbox – Out of Rage – the b-side of Shades of Grey – still waiting for the album.
  • Silver Sound Explosion – Sidekicks – as released on June 24th – you can see the video here….
  • Sandells – Glissando – a new track from the band which they let me have for the show – an amazing mix of Neu and Gong with that added Sandells magic.
  • Arks – Untitled #2 –  from the new EP which you can get from Bandcamp.
  • Mandrake – Echoes in Eternity – New demo from the second album due to be released next year, Oscar says “this is rough first mix only with guide vocal so obviously not been properly mixed/mastered”.
  • Periscope – Barefoot –  it’s mandatory to play a little Periscope once in a while.
  • Electric Wood – A Tragic Satire – a demo track from this band from Kearsley.
  • Sandells – Alien Intelligence – Alien Intelligence – the title track from the live album – recorded live in Glossop on Janice’s super duper video thingy – not a camera phone as I mistakenly say on the show – watch this blog for details on how to download the album – it is free!
  • Death to the Strange – Closer – it is also mandatory to play a little DTTS once in a while.
  • The Blimp – Fake Tan – 3 – still available from Bandcamp FREE!! …..featuring my good buddy Michael J Leigh on the drums …. he is also on…
  • The Fall – Fiery Jack – Fiery Jack – classic Fall…..no more to say…..

Salford Music Scene – 23rd August 2011

On this show….and while I am at it please support independent music by going to gigs and acquiring music….ta!

  • Geevor – Bitch Cackle – errr…they’ve split up and are no longer available for live appearances ….. this always happens , I record a show and then a band split up, nothing to do with me I hasten to add, just serendipity (or the opposite of it)…… so regardless of whether this is a great track all of this is a bit redundant in the great scheme of previewing this forthcoming saturday’s Helmets for Men at the Kings Arms, Bloom Street, Salford. My associate Mr Thornborough is working his magic to find a third act to fill the line-up which will also consist of…
  • Still Down Gill – City Limit Sisters – comprising as it does of two ex-Jannocks this band has quality pedigree and delivers a mean slice of blues soaked rock for your delectation and
  • The Calimocho Club – She Told Me – the purple suit and the eye-liner is gone and the plaid shirts and more of an RnB inflection is with us – headlining on Saturday night and proving that metamorphosis is indeed a sensible activity in a lot of instances…and I’m advised its CHO rather than CO in terms of pronunciation….
  • The Happy Fallen – The Wheel – the ever busy Mr Neale James has been hard at work with this excellent new tune…..I think he should get a band together and go out and share this with you all live …..
  • No Flash – Truth or Dare – missed them last week at the BOTW Indie thing due to illness – impressive sound and well worth checking out…will be playing near you soon!
  • Vei – Escebeche – Jonn Dean showing how electronica should be delivered from his recent EP on Mind on Fire. He tells me he is going to record again soon with a more digital slant….
  • The Loaded Dice – Turbo – recently recieved their material via our new and unsigned page…lots of info here on their website
  • Salford Media City – The Lynx Effect –  a band with a lot going on for it but not much material out there so I was pleased to extract this from the recent Found in a Skip release – they will be on at the Salford Music Festival I am advised…..so I look forward to actually seeing them live in a pub close to where I live….
  • Arks – Patterns – new EP out recently and this is from it
  • Fidel and the Castros – Golden 20 – from a demo they sent me and rather fine it is too.
  • Kill for Company – Tongue Tattoo – a new track from my favourite band of the moment – also on at the Salford Music Festival…..
  • Vei – Moths – another one from the “Thank You For Talking” EP.
  • The Fall – Repetition – classic early gruppe from the marvellous debut album “Live at the Witch Trials
