Buffet #77 We let SXSW do all the work for us…

WP_20150319_001Obviously I’ve never been to South by South West (I live in hope) but each year I listen to the Austin 100, as compiled by Stephen Thompson, and pick a few tracks for our radio show. If you want to take advantage of the free downloads you have until April 2nd, so pull your finger out. It’s worth noting that SXSW has no problem booking female artists – Reading/Leeds really could learn a thing or two…

Here’s what we played on Buffet:

1. Summer Cannibals – Something New
2. Doomtree – Gray Duck
3. La Luz – Pink Slime
4. GABI – Fleece
5. Metz – Acetate
6. Terakaft – Tafouk Tele (The Sun is There)
7. Xetas - The Point
8. Tingle in the Netherlands – Housewife’s Lament
9. Mantar – Spit
10. Mama Cass and The Big Three – Young Girl’s Lament
11. Hinds – Bamboo
12. Aerial Pink – Dayzed Inn Daydreams
13. Swans – Screen Shot

We’re back on 19th April – hope you can join us!

Le menu – Wed 28th Feb

Hello you,

Ok, have you seen the bit of paper I wrote the track listings on for last week’s show? It’s A4, white with scrawl on it, probably a bit crumpled by now?Are you hiding it? Help! I’ve looked everywhere AND unpacked every banana box in the flippin living room and it’s just not there. So, I start this post with an apology for bad filing and a promise that I’ll try really hard next week. On the upside, it’s better to listen to the show so put this addy in the bar at the top if you missed it…http://www.podcast.canstream.co.uk/bcb/index.php?page=16

and scroll down to click on The BCB Sessions

We’re sending out a big BCB Sessions bon chance to all the bands heading off to SXSW and playing at the Yorks & NE SXSW 2011 Showcase on Sat 19th. Thanks Pat (Timeless Music Project) for coming on the show and making us all jealous! Thanks also to Duane Simon – featured artist of the week…I had your track going round in my head for ages, a proper ear worm.

Now then onwards to this week’s show (Wed 9th March) and we’re doing a full on nod to International Women’s Day with female DJ’s from across BCB’s specialist music schedule and friends of the show talking about their favourite female artists and playing some of their songs. The show’s live from 9pm on 106.6fm and online at www.bcbradio.co.uk If you miss it then you can listen again by clicking on the pink highlights box on the BCB homepage. If there’s a particular female fronted band or artist you’d like to hear then get in touch: laura.rawlings@bcbradio.co.uk and we’ll put a quid in the BCB jukebox and see what happens.

Until Wed at 9,

Scars On 45 Dish On Bradford’s Best Curries

Scars On 45 backstage at The Brudenell Social Club

A couple of months ago I had a chat with half-Bradford, half-Leeds bred indie rockers Scars On 45 before they went off to Texas to play SXSW with their new Chop Shop Records label-mates Fanfarlo and Marina and the Diamonds. Vocalists Danny Bemrose and Aimee Driver had a lot to say about their upcoming album, living the dream and… where to get a good curry in Bradford.

“People always get it wrong… they go to places like Aagrah and Akbar’s and nice places, but you’ve got to go to some proper dives to get a good curry. There’s Sweet Centre… there’s Karachi. Karachi was in The Guardian, it’s been going since 1965! And it’s either chicken and spinach, or chicken and potato… but it’s got to be masala.”

And his bandmate? “Spicy Cottage! Chicken tikka every time!”
