Is This thing On Podcast classic episode 59

Because I am away I have decided to post some old or CLASSIC episodes of the podcast to keep you all interested, hopefully….

This podcast first went live 29th November 2010 and has all the classic features. I won’t spoil the surprises but I will post the original notes below. Please remember that this is over two years old and some of the information, websites etc, do not exist and/or may have changed. ENJOY

A bumper episode this week full of wonderful stuff.

My opening track was from the magnificent Schnauser Schnauser followed by the small but perfectly formed Clara Barker.  An exclusive little track from Indigo Earth (I think), then that nice Mr Paul Lane from Unplug the Jukebox came in and told us about Under the Laurels and Johnny 5th Wheel and the Cowards.  Veronica from Boobie Wednesday told us about her site and if you click here you can see this weeks “pair of the week” and they belong to Veronica herself.

Next came a great track from Japanese indie band Suinseinoboaz with many thanks to Jpoplover for that. The sadly one off “Song Story” featured the the mighty Matt Stevens .

I then played the great Fez mentioning that if you love them or have nothing better to do then pop over to https://www.myspace.com/becksmusic and vote for them. I then played beautiful tracks fro The LCD and Tom Caulfield finishing off with a live instrumental from me.

Is This Thing On Podcast 22

Hi, in this weeks podcast I play Kevin Fisher, Sonny, The Wilton Project, Camp Out, The Fierce and the Dead

Tom Caulfield, Nick Tann (me!) and Matt Stevens all got songs reviewed by Swineshead & Napoleon from Watch With Mothers and what wonderful people they are!

As last weeks First Fifteen was a bit of a washout I decided not to play any of them and played the wonderful Sin and Shame by Birminghams own Carvalho instead.

As I mentioned, I don’t get paid for doing this podcast, I do it because I have a passion for independent music.
If you want to help support me buy some of mine or at least grab some for free!
If you like the music you hear from the other artists WHY NOT BUY THEIRS TOO?

This does contain swears, I forgot to tick the “explicit” box and now I can’t find it!
