Eclectic Mainline 16th April 2014

My favourite opening track on an album so far this year is Mask Maker by Liars, and ooh look, a record with string in it – I want!

It’s not just me celebrating a 10th anniversary this year.  Bleep has also been going 10 years and they are releasing a compilation featuring exclusive tracks, including this by Machinedrum:

I played both of the above in this week’s Eclectic Mainline.  You will find the full programme on the BCB Listen Again service.

I only have 2 weeks left of Eclectic Mainline now.  Next week’s programme will be a look back (listen back, I suppose) at some of the wonderful live sessions I’ve had during my 10 year tenure.

This Saturday, Bird (listen below) and Monster Killed by Lasers (played in this week’s Eclectic Mainline) play at a Golden Cabinet gig at Shipley’s Kirkgate Centre.

Speaking of the Kirkgate Centre, I was there last Saturday as Wilful Missing were curating The Record Club.  If you are minded to see what records we played, and read what I had to say about one record in particular, Aw Come Aw Wry by Phosphorescent, have a look at The Record Club website.

Anyway, back to the now.  Music featured in this week’s programme included a couple of tracks from the excellent new Steve Hauschildt compilation on Editions Mego, including this:
