Your best independent music mixtape all ready for the weekend.

This week I play the freshest sounds in the independent music spectrum kicking off with a demo version of my track Don’t then this list of lovlies “Billy Bragg meets Greenday” TC Folkpunk – I Overheard Someone Telling Me,  followed by “A special kind of smooth” from Eddy Smith – Blood On Your Hands, the kind of rock we really need – an angry version of The Stranglers –Damn Vandals– Mad As Hell, the wonderful mix of Americana and Brit Pop- who would have thought it possible but Bombs – Wrong Side of The Road do it brilliantly, finishing with a kind of angry Kate Bush album track from the mighty Josephine and the Artizans – Let Me Go

All good nothing bad yes?

This podcast first went live 9th August 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

Is This Thing On Podcast 107

 

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.
