Bandcamp Day tips!

Bandcamp Friday is back and there’s more options than ever so it can be confusing to navigate, once you’ve caught up on clearing out your email inbox. So here’s some top tips from us.

First up, Sunburned Hand of the Man are offering 85% off when you buy their whole back catalogue. That works out at $27.79 for 155 releases. It’s not just a whole armada of Sunburned jams, but also some incendiary John Moloney/Thurston Moore sets of flamethrower rock n roll, country psyche from Franklin’s Mint and lots more.

Next up, the long standing and every strong VHF Records have made everything pay what you want to download and loads of sweet deals on merch. Here’s a few selected classics:

and speaking of VHF, they gave an amazing offsite tip-off yesterday. Hiroyuki Usui [aka L] had put up a free download of a two CD career restrospective he put together recently. Includes work he’s done under his own name, as L, as a member of Ghost and Azul. An astounding range of stuff here from spectral blues, to psychedelic jazz to some of the finest jams.

James Toth, the artist formerly known as Wooden Wand, has an EP of brand new songs ready ya!

Finally, even we have got in on the action, with a short 15 minute track by new secret collab The Hawkshead Bedroom Orchestra. It’s a wild track that outgrew its intended album and is full of deep psychedelic low end. It’s pay what you want but at the artists request, it will be made private next week and as a result, no longer for sale.

Whatever you do, enjoy the music and please share any top tips of your own

Please do not adjust your set

Normal service will be resumed shortly*

First of all, a cautionary tale. Parts of the site are made with WordPress. I use lots of plug ins with WordPress and I do update them regularly BUT some old, abandoned by their inventors plug-ins actually took out all my WordPress pages last week.

Well, those pages (like this one) are all back online now BUT there were two that just couldn’t be saved for some reason: BEER and TOR IST DAS!

Beer was a bit under updated, perhaps our most neglected page and so some future rebirth is due. Tor Ist Das! was kept alive secretly out of pure nostalgia. Oh well, we’ll always have our memories

Future updates and changes ahoy but first I’m finally doing something I’ve been meaning to do since 2011: change web host. When my current hosts CEO was outed as an elephant shooter back in 2011 I wanted to leave but a Dad with a full time job fears complications.

Well now the deal is done and the wheels are in motion. Hopefully we don’t fall off said wheels and all is smooth.

The January Radio Show

Here it is, a little later than it should be. Unfortunately, I had some ancient WordPress plug-ins that dragged this page into purgatory. However, its cleared up now so all good. Here’s the January show!

There’s a special theme for January’s mix. It’s entirely based around what I was listening to in the 90s. Obviously, that’s not just 90s music. Then there was just enough time left to play something off the recent Richard Dawson & Circle album which is just as classic.

So, here’s the tracklist:

0:00 – Richard Dawson & Circle – Ivy

9:37 – Spacemen 3 – Ecstasy Symphony/Transparent Radiation (Flashback)

18:58 – Main – Corona (pt. 1)

1:00:37 – The Velvet Underground & Nico – All Tomorrow’s Parties

1:06:20 – Paul Giovani & Magnet – Searching For Rowan

1:08:37 – Godflesh – Slateman

1:14:14 – Laibach – War
