live, we are well chuffed to welcome the Nightingales – Midlands based indie legends fronted by Robert Lloyd who was our guest earlier in year when the band had pre-recorded a session for us. as promised Robert has returned with the full band and a treat you are in for. new album ‘Out of True’ (Iron Man) is a massive and important addition to their vital back catalogue – “right from the sardonic opening battle cry of Born Again in Birmingham (‘Cheap wraps of coke were yet to hit Nuneaton’), Out of True finds the Nightingales not merely back to their best, but actually improved.” (Ben Thompson, the Telegraph); “new line-up, which includes the teenage wunderkind guitarist Matt Wood, sees their front man, Robert Lloyd, splatter kitchen-sink cut-up lyrics over scratchy, rhythmically challenging riffs, like a Black Country Captain Beefheart. The album’s opener, Born Again in Birmingham, steamrolls over his unwitting inheritors” (Sunday Times)

live music also from the fantastic Clark – Warp records solo artiste Chris Clark joins us for a live set. he has just released the album ‘Body Riddle’ (Warp), his 3rd of juddering electronic music – electronic groans and washes mixed with electro-funk. some free mp3 previews at his throttleclark website, maybe even buy his record if you like them!

we also have a special feature on Frank Tovey/Fad Gadget – recently released “Fad Gadget by Frank Tovey – A Retrospective in Sound & Vision” (Mute) 2cd/2dvd set is a long planned career length collection of work by the late Frank Tovey, from his pioneering electronic music of the early 80s through to his later ‘solo’ work via classic recordings, unreleased work and demos. 2 DVDs of documentary and live performance complete this great document. we will be playing an interview with Frank’s daughter Morgan Tovey Frost and are lucky enough to have 3 sets to give away (courtesy of Mute records).
