Eclectic Mainline 27th October 2010

Tonight, to mark the fact that The Duke & The King are playing in Leeds at The Wardrobe tomorrow with Wilful Missing I repeated the session of theirs, first broadcast in Laura’s BCB Sessions back on 12th May.  You can also listen to their session again here on Untitled Noise if you so wish.

Amid all the excitement of the fact that we were running a competition to give away tickets to the above mentioned gig, and the fact that I was looking forward to The Twilight Sad in session in Laura’s show tonight, I forgot to wax lyrical about the fact that Animal Collective have been announced as curators of the ATP Festival next May.  This is absolutely brilliant news.  I had in my head 4 potential candidates for curating it, of which they were one.  The others, if you are interested, would have been Super Furry Animals, Polly Jean Harvey or Dangermouse.

Too Much Too Young 10/3/10 (Yeasayer Interview!)

Interviewing Chris from Yeasayer

Fun Show this week, with an interview with Chris from Yeasayer! Joel was away, but me and KC were as present as ever. KC’s Backrow Banter was entertaining as always, although it was a shame that we were back to a 6/10 film.

And the interview was fun to do. It may even get another playing at some point.

See you next week at 6.30pm on Wednesday or 1.00pm on Thursday!

Tracklisting:
Gaggle – I Hear Flies
Sondre Lerche – Bluish (Animal Collective Cover)
Yeasayer Interview
Yeasayer – Madder Red
KC’s Backrow Banter – Alice in Wonderland (6/10)
Radikal Satan – Prohibido
