Another Rathole Radio is upon us. My first from the newly relocated studio. I haven’t moved into some expensive purpose built studio, I’ve just moved everything from my bedroom to the spare room. It’s working out well so far though. I hope you’ll enjoy my usual eclectic mix of music and also a quick live performance.

  • 07:54 – The Orchestra – Like A Beetle On It’s Back – License Unknown – Another track from the Swedish band I met in Liverpool recently. Nice guys and great musicians.
  • 12:14 – KoimatsuParty, soul and funkyCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – An interesting bit of jazzy Spanish funk. Love the cover art too. Will add a link in the show notes.
  • 19:39 – Henrik Jose – The Little ThingsCC BY-NC-ND Licensed – Recommended to me in person by Bob from LivLUG, a new way to submit suggestions perhaps. This is from the 23seconds.org net label and it’s from an EP of the same title.
  • 24:42 – BrownoutOlvidaloCC BY-NC Licensed
  • 42:12 – MacroformStress ResponseCC BY-NC-ND Licensed – Suggested via email by Jonthan Archer – American electro/instrumental artist from Troy, Ohio. Where Lolcatz come from of course. This is from the 2010 album Return To Knowing.
  • 47:30 – LIVE TRACK – My version of “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley. I hope you like it.
  • 52:45 – The Teacups – John Cherokee – License Unknown – Been talking to Kate Locksley from the group and we’ll have them as guests soon. Thanks to Adrian for putting us in touch.

I mentioned Professor Kliq and his college fundraiser.

  • 60:08 – You Me TreeThis RaceCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – This sounds like Rob Warren on the vocals and I see it was uploaded by McMack in Amsterdam so that would make sense.

  • 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.
