Dandelion Radio - September 2008 shows


30 août 2008, 8h20m

Andrew Morrison:
Andy has two shows repeating every day in September's schedule on Dandelion Radio. His two hour regular show features two brand new sessions: one from John Peel faves Decoration, the other from Fidgital. Decoration's second session for the show includes exclusive versions of material from their forthcoming second album 'See You After The War' and a mystery cover version. Fidgital contribute an innovative live violin and decks set as their session tracks. There's also a live recording from Alex Canasta's album launch party in Copenhagen at which Andy was a guest DJ, as well as an exclusive new remix of a track from the album. The show also has several tracks from bands playing at September's Bestival on the Isle of Wight and the excellent 12" version of Bloc Party's new single 'Mercury'.
The latest instalment of the occasional Andy's Archives finds him once again rummaging randomly through his sizeable record collection for an hour, picking lots of excellent tracks that are at least ten years old. Choices this time around include Mansun, Billy Bragg, The Future Sound of London, Arab Strap, Dubstar, The Prodigy, All About Eve, and many more. Join Andy for this aural trip down memory lane, with classic and obscure selections for your listening pleasure.
Listen out for Andy presenting a show on Bestival FM, live from the festival site on Saturday September 6th from 9am 'til 10am - broadcasting to the entire Isle of Wight on 87.7MHz FM and the world at http://www.bestival.net!

As we near the end of another glorious British summer...ahem, Steve and Brian bring you 3 more hours of sunshine from Scotland's T in the Park and the Wickerman Festival. Having secured press passes for both, marvel as they try desperately to secure interviews with musical icons, struggling with recording levels and a recently aquired addiction to Pimms along the way.
There are interviews galore with some of Scoltand's finest upcoming musical talent and a few surprise guests, plus a cracking set of tracks from performers at both weekends. So don't be putting away the tent and soft bog roll yet, let us take you on one more summer festival journey before the onset of dark nights and colder weather once more drag you into the depths of misery and self pity.
Will they get to speak to Mark E Smith, Glasvegas or Annie Nightingale? ... You'll just have to tune in to find out.
Wagon roll!!

Jeff Grainger:
Hello again! My Show for September is a two hour bonanza of Myspace finds; (KateGoes and Jujuman to name two.) mixed with Northern Soul resplendence; (Could this be Bill Cosby’s debut on Dandelion Radio?) Topped up with brilliant tracks of yore from the likes of Sister Nancy and Paul Rooney and equally brilliant tracks of the ‘Now’ with Warning! Heatwave, The Beep seals and Clutter vs Susan Matthews. Gabrielle’s Wish bring us this months featured Album with the jaw dropping-ly awesome ‘Portal’. Cornerstone to the proceedings is a nod to the late great Isaac Hayes
As a final touch, in a desperate attempt, to usher in the start of Oldham’s Dandelion Radio Nights starting the Thursday 25th of September. (See News/Events page) There’s a track from each of the Bands on the bill; Bingo Jesus, Rev Porl with Teatime, My Captive Audience and Contra Mundum.
Right lets get to work on Octobers’ Goodies

Mark Cunliffe:
It's September and the leaves are going to start falling to the ground quicker than Didier Drogba feeling a puff of wind in the penalty box. On the show we have a recording of Derby's king of drum & bass, Iziah DC live from The Vic Inn. For his live shows he employs the talents of P.Fine on MCing duties and M Alton on sax.....it's BIG! As well as that we have Sugar Bill getting all boombastic on us. There's No.Lay spitting some truth and Nigel Mansell makes an appearance but only under the guidance of Brighton's Chevron. For the kids we have a visit to London Zoo courtesy of The Bug. Sarandon has a Massive Haircut but hopefully not a Gianluigi Buffon. Vex'd finally gets a look in (I've been meaning to play it for MONTHS....sorry Vex'd). Top Cat goes a bit jungle on us in an old skool stylee. Damien Shingleton's found a band and has gone Tunng like which meets approval round these parts. Finally, The Rocky Nest feel things are moving in a promising fashion which is a nice positive note to end on I think.... :-)

Pete Jackson:
September's show sees us invite a few mates round to console us as summer finally gives up and disappears. The Greencoats take a trip from Sweden, Lucy and The Popsonics pop round from Brazil, and Stereolab and Dr Usui join us from space (probably) to enjoy some crazy psychedelic rock from India and Nigeria and some irreligious bluegrass from The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir.
Plus we warm up for the first Dandelion Radio night in Warrington on September 19th with some classic live mayhem from headliners Lovecraft.
See you down the front!

Rachael Neiman:
In September’s very special edition of ‘The Rachael Neiman Experience’, we have two extra special guests, Ste Mccabe and Paul Forster who are joining us to talk about the forthcoming Ladybois – Men and bois who support Ladyfest’ Ladyfest Manchester fund-raising extravaganza and play some of the bands who will be performing at the event, including Pete Bentham and the Dinnerladies and The Seven Inches. We also play a couple of songs from Ste’s forthcoming debut album Hate Mail. Paul and Ste also pick some favourite tracks from the likes of Tender Trap, Cars Can Be Blue and a couple of golden oldies from The Popguns and Huggy Bear.
Elsewhere we have riot grrrl goodness from Trickbabies, Violet Violet, micropenis, Postcode, dark pop from Fuck Dress, Captain Polaroid and Paul Hawkins plus sublime indiepop from KateGoes, Mexican Kids At home, Shrag, Silence At Sea, Socks and Shoes, The Deirdres, Awesome Wells, The Tony Head Experience, Hyperbubble, Shisho, Gnu and the shrew and Cherryade's amazing new signings The Lovely Eggs. We also take a chance to celebrate the release of the Best Of Fortuna Pop! Compilation and the upcoming ‘Remembering Slampt’ festival in Newcastle by playing a classic track from Spraydog.

September brings another packed three hour show from Rocker. There's live tracks from the current LP by The Manhattan Love Suicides, and more new tracks than you can shake a stick at, unless you try quite hard. Or are very good at shaking sticks at large numbers of things.
There's tracks from The Wave Pictures; The Brazen; Bakers at Dawn; Je Suis Animal; The Tamborines; Engine; The Bumblebees; Lonely Boy; Skream; Puerto Muerto; Coming Soon; Ballboy; Flannel; and (the) Nervous Rex. Also new singles from The Pains of Being Pure At Heart; Phil Wilson; Fuck Dress; and Pete Green; as well as techno / electro from Facundo Mohrr; The Chemical Brothers; Sennh; and Ricardo Tobar.
The Charlatans; Laura Cantrell; and Jeremy Warmsley all cover songs by the same act from the 80s, there's a remix of a classic 80s track by Laurie Anderson, and this month's Peel's big 45 is a seminal electronic reggae track from the same era. There's also a brace of classic 60s soul records, in tribute to two of the great singers who we have lost in the last few weeks.
As well as little known acts, here's this month's little known fact: The Manhattan Love Suicides are named after a series of raw and extreme erotic short films from 1985 by New York underground filmmaker Richard Kern, who also directed the "Death Valley 69" video by Sonic Youth.

Simon Hickinbotham
This month's show is a staggering 92.8% music, so that means only 7.2% glitches, mumbling, false starts and pauses whilst frantically hitting alt+tab. Of the musical content, 30% is from Britain, (including Ugly Billy, Dub Syndicate, The Polaroids and Little Boots), 7% is from Japan (Velocityut and IN CORRIDORS), and 3.5% each from Italy (Gum) and Germany (Phonotones).
We have two songs from fifties America - I didn't plan it, it just happened that way, and to give more details here would spoil the surprise. However, I can reveal that we'll also be hearing a track from Pepe Kalle - one of the African artists that, to quote John Peel "will make you dance until you bleed".

Yank Sizzler:
Come lament the end of summer with me on the Yank Sizzler this month. We will fight the coming of shorter days with awesome new music from Bodies of Water, Suzannah Johannes, Coat Party, The Wilders, Eli Paperboy Reed & Anna Kramer.
The fortifications of our spirits will be strengthened by superb classics from Dr. Alimantado, Tom Waits, Ken Boothe, Percy Mayfield and Galaxie 500.
Lastly the tunes of Bembeya Jazz National, King Khan, DJ Donna Summer, Modeselektor, Vivian Girls, Blood On the Wall and CPC Gangbangs will ensure that we do not go quietly.
