I play to a crowd of no one, but I’ve got loads of online fans (Buffet #74)

RadioIf you tuned into Buffet on Sunday 25th January, we thank you. Or if you’re wondering how to listen to it, it’s over on our Mixcloud.

A massive thank you to the lovely, super-talented Jimmy May for joining us! We got the low down on 50 Sniffs and Cool Beans, as well as indulging in flat vowels and fen-punk from flat, fat, far-out Boston.

This is what we played:

1. Plan B – Ill Manors
2. 50 Sniffs – That’s Why I Only Call You When I’m High (feat. Arctic Monkeys)
3. Vehicle Derek – Sometimes She Will
4. Dan Le Sa vs Scroobius Pip – Thou Shalt Always Kill
5. Screaming Females – Ripe
6. Sleaford Mods – Shit Streets Runny
7. 50 Foot Wave – Bath White
8. Astronauts – In My Direction
9. Nots – Reactor
10. Belle and Sebastian – The Party Line
11. Bad Manners – Lip Up Fatty

Buffet is back on the radio on February 22nd. In the meantime, we’re on Facebook and Twitter. We’re probably on MySpace, too, but abandoned that years ago.

Ta-tar!

Buffet’s Butlins Tracklist

Hope you enjoyed the Buffet Christmas special, which had nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever. Instead we dedicated a whole hour to our recent All Tomorrow’s Parties road-trip to Bowlie 2, curated by Belle and Sebastian. We saw bands we love and have featured before on our show, as well as loads of new (to us) music. Here’s what we played:

The New Pornographers – Mass Romantic
School of Language – Rockist part 4 (as performed by Field Music)
The Vaselines – Son of a Gun
Silver Columns – Always On
The Beatles – Helter Skelter (as not performed by Them Beatles)
Dirty Projectors – Stillness is the Move
Foals – Spanish Sahara
Jenny and Johnny – Big Wave
Phenomenal Handclap Band – 15 to 20
Mulatu Astatke – Mulatu
P J Harvey – 50ft Queenie (Jenny’s fantasy-festival curator)
Belle and Sebastian – Write About Love
Franz Ferdinand – Jaqueline

Our next ‘normal’ Buffet is on New Year’s Day at 5pm. Join us for a 2010 review (of sorts).

Twee(t) Blog – the Buffet Triumverate Visit Butlins for Bowlie

So the Buffet Belles had a fabulous time at All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Bowlie 2, curated by Belle and Sebastian; but we are far too busy to write up a proper blog – so here are our tweets from the event instead.

(And please tune in for our next show on New Year’s Day at 5pm, and listen out for a buffet special over the holiday period!)
