Yes I know it’s been a while and if you listen to this amazing episode you will hear why. Nevertheless some outstanding tracks this week including Jim Chorley – There’s nothing like your love, Lyra – S.T.A.Y., Dom Down Jones – Hold ME Down, Charmides – Cold Blooded Killer, Skyfever – Burning Hands, Decoster Turn to fire or stone, Nick Tann – Crazy, Alireza Yousefi – Maale Man Bash.
This week is a special episode where I get to interview the marvellous Dan O’Farrell, he of Accrington Stanley and John Peel’s playlist fame as well as a legend in his own lunchbox with his solo project AND with the amazing Dan O’Farrell and the Difference Engine. We chat about the John Peel days, his record number (surley a record yes?) of live performances and of double bass player Rick Foot. He also performed a live version of “Fill My Lungs” in the studio. It was really something and something you should really hear. Hoping to do more interviews over the next few weeks. Who would you like to hear me interview? Answers on a postcard…. remember those??
What a show and made better by having some top tunes from Spoiled Horse Racer (Eva Avenue) – What a Stunner when he Roll up, Heroine – Afraid, Rat Faced Lewey – Comfortable, Desensitised – Emily, Sally Crosby – Good Enough, Rosalind Harniess – Help Me, Saints of Sin We’re on Fire, Nick Tann – Love Lies, High/Low – Road (I’m not superman)
An amazing array of fresh new music from all over the planet this week including news singles from This Blue Falcon – Prohibition Park and the stunningly good Anatoli Tsampa – Only a Stranger. Gumshoe – When They Start to Ignite, wowed me and Lillimure – Something, makes me want to visit New York. I played Doyle and The Forefathers – When Will The Children Learn, as a small tribute to BEn Clark who sadly died a couple of weeks ago. I gave favourites of the show Dakka Shanks – Skinhead Boy a spin, what a track and what a band! I’m getting more and more into Guy Siv – Agnicity, I wonder why….? I managed to jam one of my tracks in Nick Tann – Safe Harbour from my album Authentic still available from my website. All in all a great show although I don’t think I was at my best presenting wise… Never mind the music is fab!
