the radiofreemidwich show episode 13

Hello comrades!  Ach, it was almost Summer for a moment wasn’t it? Oh well. Why not manage your frustrations with this cathartic mix of fury, improv, improv fury, short wave flutter and unnerving loopage. An exceptional selection, even if I say so myself. AND I DO.

Featuring music from Redbait, Red Team, Guttersnipe, Andrew Paine, Chlorine and Kirsty Porter. The interlude this week is a recording made whilst leaning against the door of the plant room at work, enjoying machine throbbery augmented by birds trilling in the trees opposite.

You are very sweet for listening. Share the love via a tweet or a tag on the wall of the toilets at Café Oto.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 12

Hello comrades!  Today I present a taster menu – two of the tracks are complete, the remainder are flavoursome excerpts from longer works that I can’t help but feature. Hold tight for bludgeoning fury, heavy tidal beauty, dada noise rampage, duelling cello/dictaphonic improv, a glorious psychnoise crescendo and unplaceable magnificence from The Slowest Lift.

As well as a preview of Sof and Julian’s forthcoming album, the show includes music from Crisis Sigil, Acoxaca, an exclusive live snippet from Territorial Gobbing & Neil Campbell, Posset / Ulyatt and FVNGVM. The golden age continues…

Thanks as ever for listening, please spread the word and leave comments in chalk on the pavement outside your house. These shows are available as podcasts in most of the usual places and can be streamed from either the embedded player below or mixcloud.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 11

Hello comrades!  The spotty summer of crushing hayfever and political unrest continues so hopefully this half hour will be a welcome tonic. I love all my strange children equally, of course, but this golden eyed episode is a particular favourite.

Features music from Mariam Rezaei (featuring YOL), Wizards Tell Lies, Alan Morse Davies, Ignatz Höch, Robert Ridley-Shackleton and Black Dresses and an interlude which involves me walking across the Brotherton library in-between one track and the next.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 10

Hello comrades! I trust you are enjoying a summer of leaking shoes, blown out umbrellas and murderous geopolitics. To accompany the fun/dread here is a discordant mix of current noise, drone and clatter from in and around the no-audience underground.

Features music from (the extraordinary) Comfort, SALTINGS, Rovellasca, CLOAK+CLOACA, Van Appears and marlo eggplant. The interlude is the croaking of a Schalow’s Turaco – a shimmering green bird with a rad manga haircut, recorded last year at Lotherton Hall. Today’s selection is more abrasive than that of some other shows but IT WILL DO YOU GOOD.

If you enjoy these offerings please tell others and, if you like, tell me. Tragically, even the faintest of praise or encouragement will keep me at it.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 9

Hello comrades! Well, it’s Summer in our hearts, right? Here’s the latest collection of hardcore fury, dronal oddities, bubbling electrics and homespun improv to provide the aural equivalent of a second duvet during this inclement weather.

Features music from Rat Cage, Cahn Ingold Prelog, Kieran Mahon, Mariam Rezaei, The Leaf Library and Sophie Cooper. This week’s interlude is a determined rummage in a gigantic pile of Lego and the links were recorded whilst staring out of an open bedroom window in-between downpours. The episode picture is of a large painting dumped outside a coffee shop near where I live. It’s been there for days and I’ve become a bit obsessed.

If you enjoy the show please feel free to tug the sleeves of those around you. You can also listen via the embedded player below or subscribe and download these shows as podcasts from the Apple thing or other more manageable means.  Ratings, comments and whatnot always gratefully received.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 8

Hello comrades!  Apologies for the late running of this service but real life commitments mean our weekly schedule will be disrupted by engineering works during the summer months.  Your indulgence is also requested as a moment of softness led to my son Thomas helping with the links in this episode and a moment of steely-eyed calculation led to me including excerpts from two projects I am personally involved in.

Features music from Closet Witch, Daniel Thomas, Dublock, Penance Stare, Earth Trumpet & Midwich and Kassia Flux.  The interlude is some wave-washed, pebble-scrunching recorded on a blustery beach – the crackling you can hear is my forehead reddening in the sun.

If you enjoy the show please continue to spread the word.  All comment on any media is much appreciated.  You can also listen via the embedded player below or subscribe and download these shows as podcasts from iTunes (or whatever iTunes has been replaced with should you be reading this after the Apple shake-up) and various other less crap apps too.  If you are given the opportunity to praise or rate the show, please do.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 7

Hello comrades! Tuck in your napkin and enjoy a deep-fried selection of sludge-punk, melancholia, unplaceable oddness and joyous intimations of different climes. Featuring music by Cartilage, Ayankoko, Chrissie Caulfield, Thistle Group, Depletion and a jaw-dropping field recording of Gamelan Angklung. This episode’s interlude is an in-carriage recording of a chugging steam train on the West Somerset Railway.

Should you dig this I would appreciate you tweeting about it, commenting on mixcloud, pumping it from your car stereo as you idle at the lights to impress the kids etc. You can also listen via the embedded player below or subscribe and download these shows as podcasts from iTunes (and various other podcast apps too).  Should you feel the urge to leave a five star rating, hey, who could blame you?

the radiofreemidwich show episode 6

You know when your enjoyment of the warm weather is undercut by the nagging feeling that an end-of-the-world storm is gathering? Yeah, me too. So here’s a soundtrack for your lunchtime stroll!

Episode 6 features dronepunkdadaelectronica from Unsanitary Napkin, Cloud Diameter, Anna Peaker, Posset, Robin Smith + Territorial Gobbing and Dane Law. The interlude is a chainsaw idling – no further explanation offered. This episode’s links were recorded in a park on campus so, as well as me yammering, you get birdsong plus aircon and generator units. Hip soundscape, eh? I also swallow a flying bug whilst saying goodbye!

Should you dig this I would appreciate you tweeting about it, commenting on mixcloud, playing snatches to your bewildered work colleagues etc. You can also listen via the embedded player below or subscribe and download these shows as podcasts from iTunes (and those apps that scrape listings from iTunes). Don’t forget to leave a five star rating – it’s only polite.

the radiofreemidwich show episode 5

Yes, episode five is upon us! Released at some random hour, from a secret location because my partner is using the Midwich Towers mainframe for, y’know, important real life stuff.

Features music from Clemency, Me, Claudius (meaning the act called ‘Me, Claudius’ not myself then some Roman bloke), Otto Willberg, Amy Cutler & Delphine Dora, Ashtray Navigations and, in a fit of excitement brought on by the announcement that he will be playing TUSK in October, an obscurity from the vaults by Johann Wlight. It’s end-to-end, super-max quality. AS EVER.

If you enjoy this please comment, tweet, stuff haiku into the pockets of unsuspecting fellow commuters and all that. You can also listen via an embedded player here (see below) and, after suffering the humiliation of submitting myself for Apple’s approval, you should now be able to subscribe and download the show as a podcast via iTunes and a bunch of other podcasting apps. Yes, I now have a podcast – oh, the indignity…

the radiofreemidwich show episode 4

I dunno, you wait for a no-audience underground radio show/podcast type thing from this blog for nearly ten years then four come along at once…

Looking to continue the trend of halving the number of listeners with each successive episode (according to maths, #8 will have less than one…) I’ve chosen a tricksy but sublime mix for this fourth instalment.  Keep all limbs inside the vehicle as we have hardcore punk, enveloping drone, electric disquiet and an indescribable duet for turntables and guttural snarling.  I do top it off with some cosmic groove to resettle your equilibrium though – don’t worry, I ain’t a monster.  Features tracks by crisis sigil, beth gripps, The Leaf Library, Tungsten Grasshopper, Mariam & Yol and Tuluum Shimmering.  All manner of brilliance, all over in 34 minutes.  Guaranteed synapse fuel.

Please pass it on if you like the show.  Comments on mixcloud very much appreciated.
