Salford Music Scene – 5th July 2011

Spot the silly mistake again on this show when I describe Still Down Gill  as Sit Down Gill – I’ve have no idea why I did this but I seemed to have got stuck in my head that they were called that – probably cause Kev Morel sits down when he plays his bongos, well that’s my excuse anyway. On this one I concentrate on the new Vinny Peculiar album whic h was released the day before the show was broadcast……anyway here we go again…..

  1. The Black Knights – Midnight in the Mausoleum – Fuck You Very Much : The Death of the The Black Knights – the swan-song from the dynamic duo who are now The Calimocho Club. Available as a free download from Bandcamp. Helmets have the new band lined up for a gig at The Kings Arms in Salford in August.
  2. Toska Wilde – I Am (Your Temptation) – from a forthcoming limited edition album called “Cindy Darling” this features Brucie from The Get. A definitely harder edge and more dance oriented tune from Toska.
  3. The Souls – Caught In A Whisper – not played anything from these lads for a while so I was pleased to get this version of this fab tune.
  4. Vinny Peculiar – A Vision/Art Thief – two tracks back to back from Vinny’s new album “Other People Like Me” which is rather excellent. You can get it from the usual download outlets.
  5. The Happy Fallen – Deadbeat Disco – NJ is back with another great tune.
  6. No Tokyo – Ego Healer – got this in as a demo and was impressed by their mix of funky bass and indie guitar.
  7. Toska Wilde – All Men Want Me – a radio edit according to Toska.
  8. Whipcord – Mista Vista – they are playing a gig at Ruby Lounge in a couple of week with Mr Heart.
  9. Still Down Gill – City Limit Sisters – got this via Tony Thornborough. Two ex Jannocks in this line up with is a good place to start. A modern take on a bluesy 600s/70s sound.
  10. Shanty Town – A Day In The Life of Edward – thanks to Mr Coupe for these tracks, another Facebook friend request sent and not responded to as yet – never mind. A fine band from Salford.
  11. Vinny Peculiar – Christo & John-Claude/Something and Nothing – another couple of tracks from Vinny.
  12. The Fall – Birthday Song – it’s getting to be a bit of a fixture to finish the show with a Fall tune. This is one from the recently released remastered version of the Marshall Suite. The Fall in reflective mood with excellent keyboards from Julia Adamson.
