Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
It's bloody March already and Thomas still has some Mark E Smith related content he wants to play despite the marathon tribute you all got on this station recently - in fact, there seems to be an unusually high quota of golden gassers from yesteryear in this month's show generally, including: the slight return of darkwave giants Mollusc; the feted unearthing of an unheard Television Personalities gem; vintage beef from Lee 'Scratch' Perry; and a classic cut from Dandelion's newest stablemates The Beatbox Saboteurs in case they don't play it themselves.
But don't fret, there's plenty of shiny new things too, such as the first new material in half a decade from The Fish Police, two dazzlers from the recent The Native Cats LP, Tectonic's hundredth release, two drummers fighting, angels, dogs, polyamory, broccoli, and literally more besides.

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.
