Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m sixty four? That’s right Rathole Radio number 64 is upon us. I got most of the tracks from Jamendo this time and they’re full of Creative Commons goodness, plus marrowbone jelly. Ok, no marrowbone jelly but have a listen anyway. You might enjoy them. I also reprised a live version of “Stringman” by Neil Young.

  • ShearerDay’s EndCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A track from one of the most popular rock bands on Jamendo. Shearer hail from Germany and I like their frantic sound. I’ve played theme before but this track comes form the 2010 album Monument which is new to me.
  • Microcobra – Mizuki’s Last Chance – Backlash (Microcobra Mix Edition) – License Unknown – Heard this one via AMPed and the award winning Pete Cogle of PC Podcast. A great piece of 8-bit electro from netlabel Sociopath Recordings.
  • The Underground CollectiveMelodios HamonicsCC BY-SA Licensed – From a compilation called Mix Tape vol 2 which you can get on Jamendo. Short but sweet I thought. Nice track.
  • Plug’n’PlayLost A FriendCC BY-SA Licensed – You could easily be fooled into thinking this band were British with the jangly indie sounds and Morrisey-esque vocal. Actually they’re Polish. This Lublin-Warsaw band released a wonderfully titled EP Whoreship in 2008. Grab it from Jamendo.
  • Stefano MociniLeaving YouCC BY-SA Licensed – A great Italian pianist. Check out his album A Cat Playing on Jamendo. I highly recommend it. Lovely instrumental piano music. Love the artwork. Possible Lolcatz endorsement on the horision I think 🙂

CCHits.net 1st birthday was last week. Great work Jon! 🙂

  • Vampire TNAMean ParadeCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – An interesting Greek electro artist I found on a dubstep playlist in Jamendo.
  • Sean WrightSipping On A Red BullCC BY Licensed – A strange but interesting rock tune from British artist Sean Wright. I like his voice and it has a slightly Bobby Gillespie vibe to my ear. The song seems oddly concerned with Red Bull, no commercial endsorsements here!

LIVE TRACK: I was a little under-prepared so I asked the IRC for song suggestion and Gamerchick02 mentioned Neil Young. I wanted to play “Stringman” again for everyone. I know I’ve done it before but hopefully you like it.

  • EsgiAlone AgainCC BY-NC-ND Licensed – A nice bit of Ambient music I found on Jamendo. This artist is British and this is from the 2007 album Echos In Time. Great chill out music.

There’ll be an extra bonus Barcamp Liverpool show on Friday November 18th. More details to follow

  • BlackangesBreezeCC BY-SA Licensed – Another slice of Dubstep, this time from a German artist. This is the sort of track that makes you sit up and take notice. The dirtiest analogue bassline I’ve heard in a while.

  • 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.
