Welcome to Rathole Radio number 65. It’s hard to believe we’ve reached 65 already but there it is. I played my usual mix of eclectic independent tunes and chatted away with everyone listening live. I skipped playing an acoustic tune as we had a packed show anyway. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

00:00 – Paul Liddell – Ghost Car – License Unknown – I heard this via the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlighthalloween show and friend Graham Holland. Buy the EP Help Yourself Float from Paul’s website.I played Graham Holland’s amazing Roland Ratbumper he made for me!! :)08:48 – Triplexity That FeelingCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – Heard this on Jamendo. A Spanish artist I’ve played before who mixes jazz with breaks and other interesting elements. The track contains mobile phone interference noises, it’s not me!!

13:56 – M.A.S.T – The Rise Of Eastern StarLicense Unknown – This track was an email suggestion from Ratko Vujanovic. This group did the music for a Guild Wars podcast called Relics of Orr apparently.

I played a promo for The Bugcast which is hosted by fellow AMP members Dave and Caroline Lee.

24:12 – A Minor TheoryDream In BlueCC BY-NC Licensed – From CCHits – A slice of retro sounding electro pop that I really enjoyed. It has a very 80’s feel.

27:44 – TabloidThe Junkie Violin PlayerCC BY-SA Licensed – From CCHits – A UK band I heard via CCHits and wanted to share with you. Find them on Jamendo.

Check out Kevie’s TuxJam show. Inspired by RR apparently. I’m honoured.

36:06 – Slim – Ghost Island – License Unknown – Another track I heard via fellow Liverpool podcaster Graham Holland. A singer songwriter from Hackney, North London. Buy the album ‘Slim’ and download this track for free from his website.

42:36 – Freak Fandango OrchestraRequiem For A FishCC BY-SA Licensed – I had an email from the band saying their new album Tales Of A Dead Fish was out on Jamendo. They are from Barcelona and I’ve played them before. I like their quirky sound.

Extra Barcamp Liverpool show details – Friday November 18th at 8pm UK time. See the website for venue details and come down. It’s free and everyone is welcome.

51:00 – CathleenHold meCC BY-NC-SA Licensed From CCHits – Heard this on the CCHits weekly show and liked it a lot. Despite the Irish name and slightly folky sound Cathleen is actually German. Very nice song.

55:53 – JiboulNaz-PartyCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A track I heard on Jamendo but I’ve actually played the artist before.

I had an email from Ted Strait, also a listener of Linux Outlaws to ask if he could rebroadcast the show on http://www.radioreclaimed.com/. Of course I said yes.

64:00 – David Rovics Occupy Wall Street – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – Friend of the show, former guest and roadshow participant David Rovics with a studio recording of his new song about the reasons to occupy wall street. Obviously a big movement going on right now.

  • 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.
