Another year gone, almost. How did that happen? The penultimate show of the year contains lots of great new music. In this show I'm particularly enthralled by the 3 new Metal Postcard releases that have just come out from DEF!CIT, Yea Big and the mighty dreamherbs.
Last month I happened to be in the UK so offered to drive the band 5 hours up to a Leeds gig. Not a successful outing, ten hours driving for literally 120 seconds on stage. The band, who I hasten to add, had been turned down to 10% of their normal volume were still way too loud for the locals and a quick exit had to be made to avoid a night of ensuing violence; ahhh! rock'n'roll is still alive!
We also very happy to be able to feature the latest release from Billinghurst's finest, The Suburban Homes and a new one from Jangly Mark & the Benefits. I do have to say apart from some of the rock crud coming out of Manchester at the moment and being pushed by the usual clueless press, music otherwise, is the healthiest its been for years in the UK.
I never thought I'd be featuring Eminem on the show, but, although not exactly subtle, his new rap about Trump is on the mark and worth at least one listen. On the international front we have arab band from the Golan Heights, TootArd, and their addictive mix of Ethiopian rhythms, Mali guitar stylings with a touch of reggae to top it all off. Or how about MilkyWhale from Iceland (Thank-you Ben) who make pop like it should sound in 2017.
Oldies from White Horse, Matt Finucane, The Carter Family and more. Don't miss around the hour and a half mark, the wonderful, "Meth" by Serengeti. The lyric talks about Derek and his Meth habit which is doubly odd as we just had a meth head (he lasted about a week) working in the restaurant called Derek.
By the way if you are a dreamherbs fan, do head over to Pete's show for a track from them.
