Smarten up your acts, put on some pants and sweep that rubbish under the couch. We’ve got guests! Well, a guest (singular) to be more precise. I caught up with Kate from The Teacups to talk folk, biscuits and oddly Noddy Holder. I also played my usual eclectic mix of tunes. Enjoy!

  • 00:00 – Gangstagrass – Shoot Dem (feat T.O.N.E.z) – License Unknown – I’ve played Gangstagrass before but I was reminded of them recently by Peter Clitheroe of Suffolk And Cool. This track is available for a limited time as a free download.

RATHOLE RADIO GIG DATE CHANGE – Now Friday May 11th, make a note!

  • 07:40 – LagomorhpaSkylineCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A German artist producing interesting electro from Frankfurt. A drum & bass flavour to proceedings at times I thought. I heard this on the Jamendo dance music radio.
  • 11:24 – Quantum JazzAll About The SunCC BY-SA Licensed – Another track off the last album by Danish jazzers Quantum Jazz. End Of Line is the last album in more ways than one as the group has sadly split. But they left some great music that we can all continue to enjoy. Thanks to friend of the show Don_S for sending this. He plays flute on this track. I mistakenly said piano last time.
  • 22:07 – Wim SchönermarckOlacy 200 grams ChipsLicense Unknown – A beautiful piece of sad Flamenco music. I love the way the guitar and cello interact and I highly recommend it. This track can be downloaded via Sound Cloud.

27:32 – Interview:  Kate Locksley from The Teacups. We had a great chat about folk, tea and more.

45:03 – The Teacups – As I Roved Out – License Unknown – A song which Kate picked for us to play and she told us more about it in the intervew.

  • 50:10 – I Am ThisString TheoryCC Sampling+ Licensed – There really isn’t much information about this artist on Jamendo or their own website. It’s all very cryptic but what I can tell you is that they’re from Pheonix, Arizona and I like this weird experimental track. I think it’ll divide the parish and some of you will hate it but let’s find out.
  • 53:26 – Epic Soul FactoryLoveCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – I saw this listed in the Jamendo top 100 and when I clicked on it I expected to hear some smooth soul music from the name. Instead it’s an epic instrumental. It took my surprise but in a good way.
  • 60:20 – Houdini RoadshowGimme BloodCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – German rockers who I’ve played a couple of times before. They recently released a new album called Are You Ready and it’s got their trademark hard rock sound.

  • 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.
