Playing tracks by
The Moons, Tom Williams and the Boat, Little Barrie , Edwyn Collins, The Third Degree and more.
A 7" only selection from a few bands I love- who should be bigger. The Moons and Tom Williams kick off this mix with 2 b-sides. 'Little' Barrie Cadogan is probably better known as being Primal Scream's guitarist of late, but his own band are really something special- catch them live, and thank me later. Edwyn's continuing rehabilitation after his life threatening double cerebral haemorrhage is well known, this Northern influenced track is killer, he also records Little Barrie AND The Moons. Genius. Tamworth Groove Merchant, Mark Mortimer's DC Fontana are a band everyone should know- beautifully crafted Art and Soul. The Third Degree make Duffy's 'Mercy' their own, while Roy Budd gets some Acid Jazz treatment courtesy of The Filthy Six. Janice Graham Band are just starting out- infectious grooves and a carnival atmos, see them! Double Slit action from Ari Up (RIP), with On-U Sound's New Age Steppers, and Hollie Cook, before we finish with a Specials classic- b side of No1 hit Ghost Town
