Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
This month's wingding from Thomas is dedicated to Australian artist Katharine Daly, who died last month, and has regularly featured on the show with music made under her own name or as the frontperson for the band Ostraaly. This episode closes with a selection of her songs and a plea to download the Ostraaly album Misery Guests, released at the start of 2020 by the label Tenth Court.
Before that though there's elation, fear, aliens, ghosts, milk, cheese, and a bunch of new singles from Zig Zag, BRNDA, MissGenius, Blonde Revolver, Tragic Carpet, Jangly Mark, and plenty more besides.
The label Tuff City provide some soul and funk from yesterdecade, Mothra finally release an album that's been sat under the bed since the mid nineties, and your host becomes overwhelmed by a twenty year old song about a cringeworthy newsreader.

On the show NEXT month:
Thomas's October excursion is the first show back since the death of firm favourite Lee 'Scratch' Perry, so there's much treasure to be had this month from the mighty man himself and his numerous collaborators, spanning over half a century. From just a handful of heavy hitters in the Pipecock Jackson back catalogue we get to hear him screech like a cat, accuse someone of drinking chicken blood, and deliver a guide to the Universe.
A combination of listening to dub non-stop for a month, some light head trauma (long story) and the effects of an ongoing lockdown (even longer story, I guess) this month's episode is a bit spacier than usual, but includes terrific new singles from Dianas, Papaphilia, BlackFace Family, Nooky & Jamel, Centennial Gardens and the like, plus the same track played at two different speeds, a band performing their last gig ever eleven years ago, and - why not - a song about October.

Biography:

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.
