THRESHOLD FESTIVAL BLURB:
In February 2011, Liverpool’s NOVAS Contemporary Urban Centre will play host to a large multi-arts Festival; Under the Influence presents ‘THRESHOLD’.
The first Rathole Radio of 2011 and it went with a bang. Sadly I couldn’t do a live song after a 2hr gig with 20lb Sounds the night before. My voice was like a Shetland pony… a little horse, get it? Ok I’ll get my coat. I played my usual eclectic selection of music and had a good chat with everyone on IRC. I hope you enjoy the show.
A festive Rathole Radio this time, broadcast on December 26th. I even performed a Shakin Stevens Christmas song that won the live vote, you won’t hear that again soon. I had an eclectic mix of tracks as always and lots of fun chat was had in the IRC channel. I hope you all enjoy the show and have a great New Year
Winter greetings from Rathole headquarters. It’s icy here in the UK at the moment but I attempted to warm everyone up with some hearty tunes. A bit of Nerdcore, some rock, some acoustic tunes, a bit of funk and even some ragga. What more could you want? Ok don’t answer that. I also played a live song on the electric guitar this time. It was great to be on live again and chatting to people in the IRC. Hope you enjoy the show.
Greetings everyone. Settle in for another episode of Rathole Radio. No live broadcast this time I’m afraid because at the usual show time I was in London at a Public Enemy gig. You have to forgive me, I couldn’t miss this. I pre-recorded this show but it still contains the eclectic mix of great music you’re used to. There’s also an acoustic performance to enjoy, so I hope you will. Let’s rock!
Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight #35 - November 2010 The Jon Gomm special
This month's Liverpool Acoustic Live takes place on Friday 26th November at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street and features three very different, but extremely talented, performers at the top of their game.
We're really excited that Jon Gomm will be headlining in his first Liverpool gig for over four years. Jon is one of the finest percussive guitarists in the UK today, and we're delighted that he's agreed to travel over from Leeds to play for us. Those of you lucky enough to get a ticket are in for a real treat!
A momentous Rathole Radio this time as I launched the all new website for my band 20lb Sounds. I’ve been working hard on it in the last week or two and I also played a world exclusive new studio track called “Jimmy Carter”, we’ve been perfecting it and we hope you like it. I also played an acoustic version of my own song celebrating NanoWrimo which started Nov 1st, along with the usual compliment of great music. Sit back put your feet up and enjoy.
Liverpool's first Music Unconference is planned for the 23rd and 24th April 2011 and it's totally free - yes you read that right FREE.....
For musicians by musicians
The most awesome of Music events is on now in Manchester and if you have the time this weekend I suggest you get over there - not only for this National Unconvention but also for the mad AND Fest - which presents art, creativity and technology merged into one amorphous mass of flashing lights and screechy noises.
But to return to our subject matter - this year’s national Un-Convention event promises to be the biggest and best yet. Taking influence from Un-Convention events around the world and inviting some of the most inspirational and influential figures from the global grassroots music scene – this year will use Un-Conventional spaces – including a barge, Salford Lads Club, Chapel Street venues - Sacred Trinity Church, Islington Mill, Salford Central Station; and explore new and cutting edge issues around music, technology and creativity. It's on now till Sunday 3rd Oct….
