Friends, Caged Animals & East Park Reggae Collective on The BCB Sessions!

4 January

Hello you,

Happy New Year!

Hope happy days are here and all’s good. So far, I’ve slipped down a flight of stairs and given myself a royal pain in the neck (*muted shrieking hoping no-one would notice – I’ll never make a scientologist*), nursed a cold that makes me sound like Pat Butcher (God rest her soul), cancelled my holiday (wtf?) and been stuck for hours on a broken down train while a young girl sang Abba medleys and read the bible out loud. The youth of today… There’s more but that’ll do, this isn’t an episode of Enders.

Needless to say, I’m reaching out the hand of sympathy and solidarity to those of you who are also getting all their bad luck out the way on days one, two and three…

So, here’s the show that’ll make you feel better.

Friends – Friend crush

The Wave Pictures – Eskimo kiss

Stay Positive – Dandelion

Still Corners – Endless summer

East Park Reggae Collective – The Frontline (love these guys – get their latest album from Bandcamp)

Fol Chen – So good

Everything Everything (BCB Sessions Archive) – Suffragette Suffragette

Kaiser Chiefs – Little shocks

Crackpot – Star

Willard Grant Conspiracy (BCB Sessions Archive) – Drunkard’s Prayer

Moby (Kleerup remix) – The right thing
