Podcast 01 – 31.01.2016

January 2016 and these are just some of the Irish and UK bands turning our heads at the moment.


“If you’re listening to this at night and you’ve got kids, get them out of the scratcher and give them an education :)”

Let’s go…Here’s the lineup…

0:20: The Dead Heavys (Liquidator)

(20 second mark)

Working with Jagz Kooner (Radio 4, Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Massive Attack, The Charlatans, Kasabian, Reverend and the Makers. The list is endless) this is one of our favourite Irish bands at the moment.

From Waterford, it’s The Dead Heavys with Liquidator. Indie. Psychedelic. Whopper.

Come On!


4:35 The Wholls (X21)

(4:40min mark)

X21 by The Wholls has been blasted out at some of the big football stadiums around the UK. NME have been blown away. BBC Introducing reckon they’ll become one of the biggest bands in the UK.

From Bedford this is a top right hand corner back of the net tune.

Get In!


The Sour Seeds_Pod01

(8:30min mark)

This band’s current EP “Always Never'” was recently voted 3rd best Irish EP for 2015 by U&I Magazine. From Dublin, this is The Sour Seeds with Can’t Bring Me Down from that EP.

You’re welcome :)


No Hot Ashes_Pod01

(12:30min mark)

There comes a time when an absolute cracker of a band enters your life and just doesn’t leave it. Working with Gavin Monaghan (Ocean Colour Scene, The Twang, Robert Plant etc etc) and managed by the great Mr. Peeps this is an absolute corker of a band from Manchester. It’s No Hot Ashes with Easy Peeler.

Nice one ;)


The Tapestry_Pod01

(17:50min mark)

According to Louder Than War, this is “a self styled ‘dirty garage pop’ band, currently building a reputation for themselves as a ‘must see’ live act”. From Manchester and it wasn’t that long ago that they were opening up for The Enemy, it’s The Tapestry with Infatuation.

How’s the beer going down? ;)


Casual Agenda_Pod01

(22min mark)

Recently opened up for Bruce Foxtons From The Jam at the O2 Academy in Birmingham and now headlining the launch gig for Gardiner Music Feb 28th at Whelan’s, keep it casual with this next one. From Walsall, it’s a rather nice bit of mod rock by Casual Agenda with Apple Eye.

Deadly buzz wha’ :)



(26:35min mark)

Listed on the Fred Perry Subculture ones to watch for this year and recent winners of the Nambucca Live “Big In 2016”, we’re absolutely lovin’ this punk band from London. It’s Sisteray with Back To Yours.

Let’s start that revolution!



(30:25min mark)

Paul Weller‘s a fan of this next band. Hofner Guitars are backing them. This is balls to the wall stuff from Aylesbury :) It’s The Repeat Offenders with 900 Times.

“Come on son I’ll take it on the chin.”

Can’t you hear that on MOTD? We can. Whooo ahhhh!


The Klares_Pod01

(34:20min mark)

In hot demand and getting really nice radio play at the moment, Hot Press favourites and U&I magazine are fans, this next band are opening up for Casual Agenda at the launch gig for Gardiner Music 28th Feb in Whelan’s. From Dublin, it’s The Klares with Cookoo.

Go on lads, let it rip!



(40min mark)

“Performance veer from barrages of flailing rage breaking into hypnotic synchronised dance moves.” From Dublin, this band has got a sound that can lift you out of yourself if you let it. Close your eyes and feel this one wash over ya from Segrasso with Altimeter.

It’s a stone groove :)
