Rathole Radio 78 – 15th May 2012
Posted on May 16, 2012
A very special show this time as I present recordings from the Rathole Roadshow 2012 which took place on Friday May 11th @ LEAF, Liverpool. Hear live sets from Thom Morecroft, 20lb Sounds, P’Chenga and The Corinthians. I have to give a big thanks to Andrew Bates our recording engineer, Jon Hall our live engineer, Neil Morrin for his excellent video work and Adrian McEwen for the audience bot, Bubblino and keeping us in touch with the chat room.
The evening kicked off with the fabulous Thom Morecroft, accompanied by Elle on vocals and Chris on percussion. I apologise for not knowing their surnames and will endeavour to find out more. Enjoy Thom’s set.

Up next I took the stage with Gary on bass and Ross on drums as we played a 20lb Sounds live set. I broke a string in the 3rd song but pressed on. It’s one less to worry about right?

Finally I was delighted to welcome one of my favourite artists in Liverpool right now, The Corinthians. Nicky Talent, Kyle The Unlikely, Little Dread and of course the main man Sonny on the beats. They tore the roof off with their very own brand of dub hop. Everyone was dancing. I don’t have all the track names here so please bear with me. Sorry.
