In this special programme for The Guardian Northerner I take you through the first 20 acts featured on my New Band Up North column. Each week, if you don’t know, I dig through the sounds of the North picking out one artist or band I think you should take notice of. Now you can listen and enjoy all the music I've highlighted so far in one place. Plus if you’ve not quite up to date yet or missed any articles it’s a chance to catch up and refresh your memory.
