Tuesday Wednesday Thursday

Becoming a little more changeable for the rest of the week winds picking up on Tuesday and Wednesday bringing the odd band of rain between brighter weather, but still fairly mild.

Unsigned bands this week.

Jared Richter band – Essex

This band have been going for a few weeks and have already recorded an excellent single. I had to admire their pluck for asking the likes of Zane Lowe to check it out. Zane is a really really nice guy and I know because I have met him quite a few times.

Anyway, I checked out their song and it’s pretty good, so even if it doesn’t get onto Radio 1 straight away I’m going to give it a go.

Skata Tones -North Devon

Reggae/Ska band from the local area performing a mix of covers and originals.

Bison – Sheffield

One of my favourite bands with five albums to chose from, this week I think a bit of a ska sea shanty should go down well.

“Seasick Sam”.

Boardwalk Isabella – North Devon

Right, last time I will be playing Resurrection Man for some time, because next Sunday i will be playing you the brand new single The World Is a Mirror which is released on 24th March.

Bombskare – Scotland

Do All Dogs Go To Heaven is a brilliant piece of genre stretching ska with lots of brilliant tempo changes. I love it, I hope you do too.

One Man Boycott – North Devon

He supported Scott Xander Linn & The Broken Bottles last Friday at the Boathouse and I couldn’t go because I was gigging myself.

So here’s “Fingers Crossed” which I was planning to play a while back but couldn’t for technical reasons.

Ashley Fayth

Well she took the trouble to respond to a post on Facebook this morning when I couldn’t decide who to play. So I’m going to play the opening track from her album Wonder Wonder, it’s called Peanut butter.

By the way she wants me to point you at this link for a project she needs your help with.


Sam Dowden

I haven’t played Sam for a while now and it’s about time I put that right. “Silver Skin” was playlisted for a while so I think I’ll give it a whirl now.

Scott Xander Linn & The Broken Bottles

They played at The Boathouse last Friday and to give you an idea how mega they really are, they had One Man Boycott in support! He’s a headline act in his own right, but he came along and warmed up for them.
Let’s have my personal favourite “Six Feet Under the Bar”
