It’s time for another Rathole Radio and together with my usual eclectic mix of tunes I also have a fabulous guest. Fit & The Conniptions AKA Wayne Myers joins us live to talk about music, Linux, funny names and more. I had some technical problems getting him on the line but once I’d got some more coal in the furnace we were away. Enjoy!

  • 00:00 – Talco – Tortuga – CC BY-ND Licensed – An Italian ska punk band I was tipped off about by Doug Whitfield from Music Manumit. Very cool tune I think and it’s from their album Combat Circus which you can find on Jamendo.

I talked about the email Don Henry sent me concerning the classical music on the last show. I confused him with Don_S, sorry! You can get more great CC classical music here – http://www.gardnermuseum.org/music/listen/music_library

  • 07:44 – OrganetRim Och ResonCC BY Licensed – From Stockholm,  Sweden. I heard this quirky little track on CCHit’s Weekly Review show and had to share it.
  • 21:10 – SouthsideGet DownLicense Unknown – A fat slice of Nerdcore for the good folks at Scrub Club Records. I enjoyed this track a lot. Been saying this far ages but I’ll get that Scrub Club chat hooked up.

23:40 – Guest: Wayne Myers AKA Fit & The Conniptions joined me to talk about the new album Sweet Sister Starlight.

  • 60:48 – Emerald Park The CommonfieldCC BY-NC-SA – Swedish CC band who are really exceptional. They also played the recent IPO Liverpool event where 20lb Sounds played as well.

  • 00:00 – Tab Benoit – Come And Get It – License Unknown – Heard this on the Roadhouse podcast number 324 and had to play it. Great tune. Check out Tab Benoit’s website and his new album Medicine.
  • 15:41 – Partition 36The Optic NerveCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – I played a track called “I Love Penguins” by this artist some time ago and this is a great follow up. Lovely slice of industrial sounding electro. Thanks to GamerChick02 for the tip.
  • 21:38 – Derelict EarthThe Darkest SerenityCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A French metal band (from Grenoble), you don’t see many of those. They’ve obviously been listening to some early Metallica I think, and that’s no bad thing.
  • 43:14 – LIVE TUNE – Medicine Man by Dan Lynch – A tune I wrote some years ago and I have a feeling I might have played it live on the show before. I only realised after I’d done it. Well never mind, people seemed to enjoy it anyway. I’m hoping to soon record an album of tunes like this that have gotten away over the years.
  • 48:49 – ‘Til Dusk – One By One – License Unknown – Emailed to me by Chris from the band. They’re based in Southampton in the UK. This track is taken from their debut album Cold Lust which is released May 16th and you can find out more at www.tildusk.co.uk

Guest next time! Wayne Mayers AKA Fit & The Conniptions.

  • 57:59 – Dual CoreMagnificent Seven (feat Nerdcore)All Rights Reserved- A big thanks to Mark Horsley for emailing this track to me. I’ve heard Dual Core a few times but not this track. It’s from the 2009 album Next Level which you can get on Bandcamp and other places and it features almost everyone in Nerdcore it seems. Beefy, MC Frontalot and more.
