Did you miss me? Well I’m back with a bucketfull of the best independent music you have ever heard. In no particular order I played The Cherry Bluestones – By Your Leave, Catfish & The Bottlemen – Sidewinder, Vivid Nation – We’re Not The Same, We Steal Flyers – Our World, Sigurdor Gudmunson ~ Naem, Killing No Murder – Reality TV Star, Captain Backfire – Double Kid, Jon Gomm – Gloria, Lock n Load – Lock n Load and a song from me Don’t from my new  “Big Set”.

I interviewed the amazing Anja McCloskey and she also plays a brand new track “Black Coffee” live in the ITTO studio.

I also mentioned The Hot Potatoes Podcast but you’d best give that a wide birth unless you like crazy British potato humour.

I’ll be back next week with more of the best music you have never heard.

Is This Thing On Podcast 100!

So here we are, episode 100! Recorded live at The Cellar Southampton and what an afternoon Paul (Unplug the Juke Box) and I had!

Sadly no live video stream ( I broke the internet!) but some great live performances from Anja McCloskey, Marvin B Naylor, The Lost Boys, Mike Vaughan and Gideon Towers from Gideon’s Demise. I filled in with some amazing tracks from Tim Farrell and Matt Stevens ( the remixed one by Pseudo Ambient) . I chatted with Guy Sivour from Sand River,  David Simnell, and Mark Lawrence from Broken Links. It would have been mean not to play one of their tracks so I did that too!

In time honored fashion I finished of with one of my tracks Be Like Your Friend.

Thanks to everyone that came along and especially to Mark & Kev from The Cellar for letting me shout in their bar for a few hours!

I chucked in another Watch With Mothers review thing just for kicks.
