On my show this month:
This month we bring you a three hour show packed with new music, there's a new session from Jonny Kinkaid & The Invisible Nowhere Band, and new tracks from Muddy Summers & The Dirty Field Whores; The Popguns; The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart; The Lovely Basement; Secret Shine; The Como Mamas; Jetstream Pony; The Luxembourg Signal; The Rusty Nutz; Art Trip & The Static Sound; Star Tropics; Kew and Pillow Queens.
There's new electronica from Burial; Jonas Rathsman; Koma; Solee and Assonances get the Petar Dundov treatment. The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy cover Joy Division, while Alan Sutcliffe's 1972 improvised synth noises get a welcome new release.
We also play the number one selling track on the iTunes chart at the time of recording the show - you may be able to guess that one.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is a punk classic from Derry, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a brand new soul tearjerker from UK ska collective Pama International.
As well as little know acts, here's this month's little known fact: The EMS Synthi was a synthesizer built into a suitcase, available from 1971. As well as Alan Sutcliffe, it was used by several notable artists, including Brian Eno and Pink Floyd.

Biography:
I am proud to be a DJ for dandelionradio.com - as far as we know we are the only radio station inspired by John Peel - I was a Peel listener from 1976 to 2004 and it was his open minded attutude to different genres that has shaped my own tastes. It is a great buzz to be carrying on the great man's work and bringing previously unknown artists to the attention of our listeners.

As well as my radio DJing I have been known to drag my crates around the UK - I currently hold DJ residencies at monthly indiepop nights Sunny Inside Presents in Stoke-on-Trent and Big Pink Cake in Bristol, as well as co-promoting and DJing at Bristol's monthly vinyl-only Northern Soul night, Getting Together. I have also appeared as guest DJ at some of London's finest indie nights: Twee As Fuck; How Does It Feel To Be Loved; Lost Music Presents; and Scared To Dance.

I run eclectic CD-R label Local Underground, and am promoter and resident DJ for related gigs & events as Local Underground Presents. I also play out a progressive house set as B_Man - you can download some old mixes here. In the Bristol, UK area I have DJd for Manna parties as well as Empathy, and Voodoo nights. My ambient / chillout / dub reggae / punk / soundtracks / psychedelia sets are also much in demand in certain (crop) circles. Over the years I have also been known to play keyboards / drums in various ensembles. I record most of the bands' sessions for my show in my recording studio, StAR Studios, which, like me, has a busy schedule!

You can find me on MySpace here, and on Facebook here!
