Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
Greetings listeners from a Melbourne winter where it's parkier than Michael Parkinson in a parka, parking his car, and where sparkling dew forms on the turntables of a morn. Thomas is annoyed at his own voice again and blames the weather, but is still cock-a-hoop about all the records in July's show. There's some pupil-dilatingly great albums represented, either just arrived or just on the horizon, by the likes of Empat Lima, SOPHIE, AhMerAhSu, Sobs, Rabbit Island and more, plus some recent reissues from Professor Rhythm and Sunny & The Sunliners.
As usual, there's some words that cause pronunciation problems (how do you say 'Glimer'? 'Basenji'? 'Iiris'?) and, as seems to be happening every month now, a couple of early nineties rave flashbacks.
Plus! Two songs urging men to stop harassing people on the bus (c'mon guys, seriously), the return of Fresh (hooray!) and a song which you're almost certainly going to think is being played at the wrong speed. Do it, do it, yeah!

Thomas Blatchford is a man born in Southampton that has now lived for the best part of a decade in Melbourne, Australia. He was an avid listener to the John Peel show between 2000-2004 (first show: May 3rd 2000, with Kid Koala in session) and is still gutted he never got to have a Peel session. He has previously run the bedroom record label Fulsome Prism Recordings, and was also involved with another DIY imprint, Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen, way back when. He is in at least four bands at the moment including - genuinely - an acappella glam metal trio. He still regularly makes fanzines even though it is no longer 1981, and runs annual Melbourne zine fair Festival Of The Photocopier. He has a cat called Sarah and a rabbit called Milk, neither of them named after the record labels, just a coincidence.
