Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
Thomas comes at you in February from an Australia that is mostly on fire, charred dust and smoke in the very air, the midnight chimes of the Doomsday clock due to strike midnight long before Big Ben will, and uh ... fancy listening to some records?
In this month's lark-filled double-hour Thomas lays a virtual flower for both Norma Tanega and Neil Innes; has a slew of reissues to get pumped about from Lightning Bolt, Katawa Singers and P.H.F.; urges you to consider recent albums by Ostraaly, Diploid and DJ Speedsick; plays the then-current #1 in the Official UK Singles Chart (physical version); and spins several tracks released to raise money for bushfire relief efforts. I like bread!

On the show NEXT month:
Of course the deaths of 20th century rock and pop titans is just going to continue as we hurtle through this new decade, but both Andy Gill and Andrew Weatherall exerted a gargantuan influence on heaps of music that, let's face it, Thomas is very fond of. They both have songs played in their honour this month. 
Also featured is: new singles from DRMNGNOW, Wasted Shirt, Fizzler and Lady Di; three angry/disappointed songs released on Valentine's Day; more music helping to raise money for Australian Bushfire relief efforts from Sports Bra, Tiddas, Pinch Points and more; and an acidic tribute to The Crystal Maze.
Plus look out for one Wilhelm scream secreted somewhere in the show. Away baby, let's go!

Thomas Blatchford was born in Southampton (UK) but has now lived for over a decade in Birraranga (aka Melbourne, Australia). An avid listener to the John Peel show between 2000-2004 (first show: May 3rd 2000, with Kid Koala in session), Thomas tries to make up for the disappointment of never having a Peel session by always being in at least five bands simultaneously (which currently includes - genuinely - an acappella glam metal trio). Thomas previously ran the bedroom record label Fulsome Prism Recordings, and was also involved with another DIY imprint, Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen, way back when. Thomas still occasionally makes fanzines even though it is no longer 1981, and works in a discount bookshop to make ends meet.
