This show balances newer signed material with unsigned and attempts to be as varied as possible. The music out there at the moment is a broad church and this should be reflected in the programming of the show.
Social Distortion – they have been around since 1978 and since then have been through any number of line-up changes. Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes is their 8th album. Essentially it’s American “punk” i.e. a raw garage version of traditional rock and roll.
What?Noise – Tim Harris, Julia Adamson and Chris Nagle developed a fresh dance oriented sound in the late 80s/early 90s. The “Nuance” EP released recently delivers previously unreleased material. Reviewed elsewhere on this blog.
The Happy Soul – as reviewed elsewhere on this blog – the lyrical acoustic bluesy sounds of this artist are well worth a listen.
Sey Hollo – hails from northern Sweden and is the solo-project of Sebastian Larsson. The music is post-rock played on “rusty guitars and organs”. The new EP is out now.
Fire Suave – a mix of alternative country, acoustic and indie rock, from the 2008 album “Sand Fastened”
Apparently We Fly – an unsigned “post hardcore” band from Derbyshire.
Robin James – born in London, December 1980, with Romany Gypsy and Argentinean roots. His fragile, yet powerful, voice, and carefully crafted lyrics, evoke early Nick Drake.
Psycho Charger – a NYC trio with drum machine offering up an interesting mix of styles, a blend of the Cramps and Reverend Horton Heat. From their most recent album “Mark of the Psycho”.
Spencer Cloud and the Range Brothers – a new single from one of my favourite bands of last year.
GlassHeads – unsigned band from Wigan with a new tune
Andy Hay – unsigned singer songwriter who I played on last weeks show
Seven Deadly Sins – scottish band who are well worth checking out – nice sound!
Glass Ankle – excellent Manchester band with a keen sense of melody.
Trevor Sensitive and the Locals – from the new album “Sensitive” the ever reliable and utterly groovy Birmingham style icons.
