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.

The Duke And The King at BCB, April 2010

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.

The Duke And The King session

If you didn’t hear The Duke And The King in session back in May, you missed a really good one. This was certainly one of Laura’s favourites so far this year in her show The BCB Sessions. Laura asked me to help out with the session, and it was a real pleasure.  So, here’s another chance for you to hear it.

The BCB Sessions – 21st April 2010

Greetings people,

I’m in very fine spirits today – we’ve just had The Duke and the King in for a session and they blew me away.  I say we because  I did the organising, tea making, hugging and grinning and Alb did the nob twiddling – playing to our respective strengths (Alb don’t edit this bit – it’s serious and true).

Anyway, the hairs on the back of my neck are still standing on end! They’re now on the way to Leeds for tonight’s gig and Alb’s busy recording another musical gem with Hannah Lou and Trevor Moss.  La vie est belle.

Tonight’s show’s already been lovingly prepared for you - because I’m off to tap my feet, nod my head and swoon over our session guests. So I can reveal tonight’s tunes (Wed 21st):

Two Door Cinema Club – Something good can work
New Young Pony Club – Lost a girl
Cate Le Bon – Shoeing the bones
Owen Pallett – Lewis Takes Off His Shirt
Royal Bangs – War Bells
Yeasayer – O.N.E.
Stars and Sons – If it’s good for me
Bonobo – The Keeper ft. Andreya Triana
Emika – Double Edge
Rex – My Baby Left Me
The Duke and the King – Still Remember Love
MGMT – Flash Delerium
Hot Chip – One Life Stand
She and Him – In the sun
Bonobo – We could forever

All summery – all great. Will keep you posted re: forthcoming session guests so don’t go away.

On next week’s show - already in the pipeline - I’ve got details of a fab competition for local bands to bag themselves  a spot at Moor Music Festival plus a preview of Live at Leeds. Oh, Alb and I are working on a Rough Beats Festival preview in early May. Huza!
