Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
Happy new thingy! Thomas is still catching up with records from 2017 and is in a festive mood for the Festive Fifty. Who'll be in the chart? LAPS? Open Mike Eagle? Mixed Infants again, perhaps with their cover of a shock-jock classic? There's also a few artists to look out for in 2018 such as V, Hatchie and Dream Wife, the lattermost being one of three bands played this month with the word "dream" in their name. Dream baby, dream ...
Oh! The closing piece of music by Eluvium is from an album called Shuffle Drones, where the listener is invited to put all 23 "sonic vignettes" on shuffle and create a randomised listening experience "anywhere between 13 minutes and 13,000 hours long, depending on how (and how long) you choose to play it".
There was only a couple of minutes spare at the end of the show, but you get the idea.

Biography:

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.
