This is the first PROPER podcast for 2015, last week we took a look back at the best tracks from the 2014 podcasts and what a show it was! This week we are back to normal, 10 new tracks and 1 classic act to entertain you for the next 45 minutes.
So, to celebrate the end of another year, lets spend an hour looking back over 2014 and checking out some of the best acts that I played on The Listening Post podcast courtesy of musicmuso.com
I was going to do a top 10 style countdown but I simply don’t have time to grade each track and it would only cause countless arguments so they’re played in a completely random order.
So, our LAST podcast of 2014, it doesn't seem right that a whole year has passed already, I remember my mother saying that as you get older and have kids, the time just flies past....how right she was, anyway, we're not here to talk about old mother's sayings, we're here to check out 10 of the finest new tracks that are out there in the great big world that we live in....
This week, I have some fine offerings for you, 10 new tracks and a classic piece of Brit Pop courtesy of The Verve. I'll see you next year for a run down of what we feel are the best tracks that were released in 2014, have a good one!
So, our last show before Christmas, I should have squeezed another one in but have been so busy lately, I just haven't found time to sit down and record it! I promise there'll be another one before the end of the year!
We went to see The Wonder Stuff last week in Birmingham, then, on the day I got back, I got called up to cover Grandmaster Flash in Exeter, talk about being exhausted, I nearly fell asleep waiting for him to take to the stage (at 12:30am....yawn!)
This week you can feast your ears on 1o new tracks, one classic track and not a festive song in sight, no siree, no rockin' around any Christmas trees here I'm afraid, just the best in new music!
So folks, Christmas 2014 is nearly upon us, I haven't been subjected to THAT much Christmas music so far, by Christmas music, I'm don't mean carols and suchlike, I love them, they're 'Christmassy', I refer to the dross that comes out this time of year, Slade, Mel & Kim, Wham, all that tosh !!
On the live music front, we have been busy busy buys, we caught Bombay Bicycle Club in Plymouth recently and also caught the legendary drunk folk singer Beans on Toast in Exeter, off to see The Wonder Stuff in Birmingham on December 18th and then Grandmaster Flash on December 19th in Exeter, what a way to end the year, the godfather of Hip Hop!!
