When lyrics are close to home

We have a lyrical treat on this week’s Bradford Beat – a special feature on songs which namecheck Bradford!

Inspired by the Wild Beasts’ latest single All The King’s Men, which includes  line about “girls from Shipley”, we’ve been rummaging through the archives to find other references to places in or around Bradford in other songs.

So far we’ve come up with tracks by Ooberman, New Model Army and The Negatives – but there may be many more out there that we haven’t come across yet.

If you know of any, let us know by emailing simon.ashberry@bcbradio.co.uk

You can listen to the show from 8pm – 9pm on Thursday, 21 October.

You may have managed to work your new fangel wireless devices that you got for Christmas to listen to BCB to catch our music review show for 2009… It’s been a funny old year in music and personally I am of the opinion not a massive triumph. Don’t get me wrong there has been a massive range of fantastic new albums but the whole year just seems to have been a little slow, I have spent more time looking into musical archives this year seeking out wonderful little gems….

TMTY 04.11.09!

We’ve been forced today away from our usual live broadcast due to rehearsal commitments for this weekend’s Raise Your Banners festival of political song, a worthy excuse if ever there was one.  So this show was a pre-record.


Yessir. A trip down on Saturday night may well result in you seeing my goodself in some fetching women’s clothing…!

But yes, this week we played some very nice stuff indeed.

WILD BEASTS – The Fun Powder Plot

Here’s the Kendal / Leeds gang’s fantastic Jool’s performance for those that missed it too-

Then we talked about how Laura Groves AKA Blue Roses still owes us all a pound in royalties for singing on her album (along with a few other BCB Broadcasters I believe, Albert?)
We played an old version of-
and chatted about her imminent headline tour:



Then a glorious short from-
THE BOBBY MCGEES – L.O.V.E / A Masonic Youth


New music then from the glorious Yeasayer.
‘Ambling Alp’ is their new single.
Available for free here – http://www.amblingalp.com/
Properly stunning stuff, we’re really glad to have some new music coming from those guys after overplaying ‘All Hours Cymbals’ the last few… well… years! (it came out in 2007!)

KC’s Backrow banter gave a solid 8/10 to thirst.

On at the pictureville now!

And a solid dressing down to the latest Danny Dyer / Tamer Hassan / FIDDY Cent shocker ‘Dead Man Running’, 2/10.

We finished with DEVENDRA BARNHART – Baby
Happy Days.
Happy Bonfires.

Singles Club – Our first Podcast


Introducing our first podcast, not quite sure how regular this will be yet. But the pretext is simple. Some of the blog’s authors squabble and talk over each other while stating view points as fact. You can put it on your mobile machines so you’re never too far from BCB.

This week we look at The Twilight Sad, Kate Walsh, Jack White’s new band The Dead Weather and Wild Beasts.
