Andy has two shows in May’s schedule. In his 2-hour regular show, he proudly presents the 'Lord Numb Love-In' in his 2-hour May show, with three sessions for the price of two (sort of) including two exclusively-recorded tunes each from Lord Numb, his close associate Spidersleg, and The Reject Club - the name under which both Spidersleg and Lord Numb work together. There's loads of other great music including Harry's Gym, Niki & the Dove, Laura Cantrell, Pete Miles, Trembling Blue Stars, PJ Harvey, Alpines, Team Ghost, Samuraj Cities and Morrissey, plus a fine selection of new and unsigned bands. A classic rave anthem appears as Andy's Old Chestnut; Teresa introduces a Tasty Tip; Scott's supplies a Funky Five Minutes; and there's another exciting competition to win a bumper bundle of CDs!
His second show in May is Andy’s Archives, featuring music released ten or more years ago, selected at random from his comprehensive record collection. …

Andy introduces two shows during April's schedule. His regular 3-hour show features a brand new session from progressive trance act Cygnus X-1 - his second for the show. There's exciting new (and some old) music from Sleigh Bells, Harrys gym, Napoleon IIIrd, Red Cosmos, Dave.i.d, Trembling Blue Stars, The Horn the Hunt, Sabres of Paradise, Swans and Team Ghost, to name just a handful. Teresa introduces a Tasty Tip, Scott selects a Funky Five Minutes, and there's another competition to win a bumper bundle of CDs.Elsewhere in the schedule, Andy's Archives is back, with an hour of top tunes from ten or more years ago, randomly picked from Andy's record collection. Classic tracks come from Curve, 808 State, Aphex Twin and many more!
Greg Healey: Five, four, two. No, not a defensively minded line up selected to nullify the attacking fluency of Arsenal, but rather this month's show from Greg Healey, which features five sessions over four hours divided into two, two hours shows. …
23 Mar 2011, 04:05 by utopiantheoristSpectrum Spools has started off strong. While I was first hesitant about another entry into the burgeoning field of Kosmic music, I felt a bit weary. Thankfully Fabric allays all my fears. As it started up, I said “This is going to be a good trip” and I was right.
Immediately you’re brought into this vast, pulsing environment created by Matthew Mullane. Matthew Mullane is based in Chicago but originally came from Ohio. Seeing how many other kinds of musicians of similar ilk came from Ohio, I wonder if there’s something in the water over there because this flows so well. Each piece, whether short or long, contributes to this environment. So many of these sounds are ones you might hear fairly often, like the sweep introducing “Soft Disconnect” but it is the evolution of these pieces that’s truly amazing.
Each piece (excluding the shorter vignettes) builds up so nicely. And there’s never just a single pattern, they are woven together so tightly. …
