PBS RADIO FESTIVAL 2009


With a new logo, we have a new look PBS and a new Radio festival.

Barrel of Monkeys had another awesome radio festival show, with a late night 'spooky' theme. Check out the playlist at PBSfm's website.

For our secret spooky shame with had 'Ghostbusters' by Ray Parker Junior.

And also played this Alice Cooper 'Welcome to my nightmare' (although it wasn't this version)

The Muppet's used to give me Nightmares when I was little.

iglu and hartly

In the world of the internet I found this the other day

which is like an indie rock group with some rap thrown in, like what Linkon Park did for Alt Metal.
Also digging the animation in this video clip, it reminded me of ghost in the shell.

Ratatat

Ratatat, Qua and Worlds End Press(did not see) at the Corner Friday 15th, $30+BF

Qua was very hypnotic, 2 piece, Laptop, Synth, Electronic Drums and Sampler/Loop machine(I think)
Ratatat had some great guitar riffs and visuals, with plenty of electronic beats and samples.
I was up the front for most of it, but couldn’t stand it, seams that all the f*** heads are up the front, they tend to get a little overexcited, pushy, violent to others, and all the mellow people who would like to have a non intrusive dance stand up the back.

Lady of Pop


Lady Sovereign - So Human

This is such a pop number, I would feel very scared to play it on PBSfm. I love the use of sampling of the Cure's 'Close to Me'.

Howling Bells



Howling Bells - Cities Burning Down

Just been listening to 'Treasure Hunt' from Howling Bells and like what I hear, it's from there new album Radio Wars which has been out for awhile, and haven't listened to it yet.

Come Back

Last Friday night one of my long time RL friends decided to disappear from the interwebs (well his words were more like take a break from Facebook). And instantly thought of this song...



Player - Baby Come Back

Also I've been trying to get this smooth track on itunes but they have some crappy updated version, looks like I'll be heading to the record store.

Richie 1250

Ventured into the Old Bar on Friday to see Richie play with his band the Brides of Christ. Did happen to hear a little of Howl at the Moon, very tight and Toot Toot Toot, very challenging.


Richie was really intense on stage, really getting into the moment, dancing into the crowd. Also the guitar was really tight, and the whole band too.

Soul a Go Go


This was probably the best Soul a Go Go I've been to. Crowd was a little over 28's, and started off being a little quiet at 10 but then got packed around 11. Highlights were Vince, Paul Sadot (in the soul room) and DJ Prequel.
