RatholeRadio 29 – 27th June 10

Another Rathole Radio is upon us. I have to confess I didn’t broadcast this show live as I was out watching England V Germany in the World Cup. We were so comprehensively beaten in that game I’m glad I pre-recorded this. I wasn’t in much of a mood to do it after. Still, it’s a great show I think and I hope you all enjoy it. Don’t forget to leave comments and get in touch. Normal service will be resumed next time I promise.

It’s Rathole Radio time again, and despite being delayed by World Cup distractions it turned out to be a great show. I played my usual eclectic mix of music, chatted with all the good folks in the IRC channel, and also played a rendition of one of my favourite tunes. I hope you enjoy the episode.

Here's a qik video of Plectrum the Band performance last night as part of Frakass. It was rumoured, the band who performed their first gig in the 70's flew in from New York yesterday just for this gig - it was also rumoured that they were particularly difficult, making extreme demands of the organisers and generally being obnoxious.

Performing in cardboard costumes Plectrum continued to keep their identity and only increase the mystery surronding them. That all said though, they did provide a bit of light hearted entertainment at the end of a Mega noise filled night. From the Cardboard coffin to the plectrum shaped plectrum user they rolled the tunes out and were much welcomed by the audience who witnessed a truly exclusive performanc. The 3 tracks they played were well worth it waiting till the end of the night.

If you have ever heard them before or have any photos that would reveal their identities then please do let us know. This may be the last time we hear from them but if we are lucky we will see them emerge in other forms.

Catch Plectrum for the last time

FRAKASS is back. ... and this time it's personal! Yes the more jovial side of Frakture, liverpool based experimental music organsation is back and it's let it's hair down again and opened up the sweet shop of electronica to the youth.... well younger members anyway. That's right, they're back with more weird and wonderful music for all you loverly weird and wonderful music fans out there! Frakass = "A quarrel, fight, or disturbance marked by very noisy, disorderly, and often violent behavior: affray, brawl, broil2, donnybrook, fray, free-for-all, melee, riot, row2, ruction, tumult. Slang rumble. "

They've got an extra special line up for our return show, with the LAST EVER performance by Plectrum the band, preposterous noise from Crucifix, and musical terrorism from Kinsheeva. Plus there's visuals courtesy of Noise Club, and DJ Tim Downey will be spinning the discs for us.

Rathole Radio - Episode 27 - 30th May

It’s time for another Rathole Radio. This time I played my usual mix of eclectic styles and people said it was a “more relaxed” show, until I got to the thrash metal at the end of the show that is muwhahaha. I also played a live version of one of my favourite blues song, complete with Bee Gees falsetto vocals in parts, listen out for that. I hope you enjoy the show.
