A slightly overdue Rathole Radio this time. I missed the live show on Sunday unfortunately due to exhaustion, so I recorded this show offline instead. I skipped the live song but I did manage to cram in a bumper selection of eclectic music as always. Normal service will be resumed next time I promise.

  • 00:00 – The Gentlemen – Three Minute Marriage Proposal – License Unknown – A great band I heard via AMPed new music weekly and had to share. Love this song and it’s energy. Very well produced too.
  • 07:25 – Dumbo Get’s Mad – Marmalade Kids – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – Another track from CC netlabel Bad Panda Records, I’ve mentioned them a lot. This track is from the album Elephants At The Door released in Feb 2011.
  • 11:41 – Zoe Mulford – Just Before I Go – License Unknown – Another one I heard via Graham Holland. I actually saw Zoe performing with Lorelei Loveridge at the View Two gallery in Liverpool back in 2010. It was one of Graham’s Liverpool Acoustic nights and I was really impressed.
  • 19:20 – vvsmusicGreensleevesCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – From Hamburg in Germany, VVS is a composer and arranger who makes music for films and much more besides. He’s also a software developer and designer. A multi-talented guy it seems. This arrangement of the well known classic Greensleeves is currently number 2 in the Jamendo top 100.
  • 22:15 – Bobo In White Wooden Houses – I Wanna Keep You On My Side – License Unknown – Thanks to Moggers87 for this one. Another German artist, lots of those lately. The website has lots of pictures and other things but no real biog or info on the band that I can see. However, they sound great and I hope to find out more.
  • 30:58 – Black BonesPirates Of The CoastCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – I have to thank my Linux Outlaws co-host Fab for bringing this to my attention. He got it via a listener who I think heard it via Dave & Caroline at The Bugcast. All very convoluted. Black Bones are a pirate metal band from Piacenza, Italy. This is the opening track off their album of the title. It’s available from Jamendo.
  • 34:56 – Black BonesWe’ll Rise AgainCC BY-NC-SA Licensed – The second track off the album Pirates Of The Coast but it leads in from the first one so I wanted to play it.

I was on TuxJam with @kevie, check it out!

  • 40:18 – felixjd_make_believe_CC BY Licensed – A funky house track I picked up from Jamendo. It’s by an Italian artist who I can’t tell you a whole lot more about but it sounds good. They’re from Milan and there’s a stack of albums to dig through on Jamendo. I found a MySpace link but not much else. If you find out more let me know.
  • 44:56 – vitaminsforyou – Six O’Clock Whispers – CC BY-NC-ND Licensed – This one was submitted to AMPed by Idyllic Music. Nice bit of electro. You can get this on Archive.org
  • 56:06 – William Michael DillonBlack Robes & LawyersLicense Unknown – Heard this one via fellow Liverpool podcaster Graham Holland. A great track and it’s good to play some blues again. Read Dillon’s story from his site, wrongly imprisoned for 27 years he was cleared by DNA evidence in 2008. Now he makes music and campaigns against injustice.

  • 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.
