A very special edition of Rathole Radio this time as I was joined by one of my comedy heroes Alexei Sayle. People keep saying we look like twins but I don’t know about that. Check out the picture below and decide for yourself. I also played my usual eclectic mix of music and performed a live track. So put the kettle on, put your feet up and enjoy the music and chat.
- 00:00 – The Banadana Splits – Sometimes – License Unknown
- 05:54 – Al Duval – Where The Comet Falls – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed
- 09:57 – Broam – Wings Of The Fallen – CC BY-SA Licensed – Sent in by listener Bryan K. His own music. Good bit of electro I thought.
21:23 – Special Guest: Alexei Sayle, comedian, writer, actor and all round top bloke.
Massive thanks to the lovely people at News From Nowhere, the radical book shop in Bold St for accommodating me. Go and visit them if you’re ever in Liverpool. Also thanks to my good friend Mr Neil Morrin for helping set this up at the last minute.
The music in the background is Cello Suite No 6 in D Major by Johan Sebastian Bach. This is an excerpt from a much longer performance you can download free from the Gardner Museum collection. It features Colin Carr on solo cello.
- 38:12 – Billy Bragg – Never Buy The Sun – All Rights Reserved- A sentiment I can get behind. I took a chance with this and hoped Billy wouldn’t mind. I don’t think he will.
I also mentioned the MC Frontalot kickstarter project after a prompt from @heeed
- 45:32 – Flearoy – Tiger Lily (with EMEFE horns) – All Rights Reserved – Heard this on AMPed and it was submitted by Rich Palmer of Audio Gumshoe.
- 50:54 – LIVE TRACK – My rendition of Is You Is by Louis Jordan. A jazz/blues classic that I think I’ve played on the show before but it seemed ok to sing it again.
- 64:43 – Lejo Harmeson & Essence – Don’t Be Harshing My Mellow – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – Another fantastic song from Lejo, check out the lyrics. Words to live by in my book 🙂
