Is This Thing On Independent Music Podcast – Where are they now? #1


Just sit back and bask in what once was as this episode is full of music from bands that are no more. I played their music on the show and despite that they broke up! Therefore there are no links to websites instead just listen to the great music that they made. IF you have any information on the bands then please make a comment here.  So this weeks playlist is…

Doyle & The Forefathers – When Will The Children Learn?, What Is Life For? – the Rush, The Visitors – Same Old Me, The Lost Souls Club – Your Children Are Safe With Us, Menn Arsins – 12 Steps TO The Liquor Store, ‘Til Dusk – Honey Just Walk It, The Wilton Project – Diana, Caroline’s Capuchin Deepest Fall, Vendor Defender – Golden Shivers, Sand River – Love, People – Jackie Who?

I also mooted the idea of an IS This Thing On Youtube Chanel and the possibility of me performing a home concert in YOUR HOME. Have a listen and remember to subscribe to never miss an episode Is This Thing On Podcast
