• Dandelion Radio - February 3013

    29 Jan 2013, 09:12 by DandelionRadio

    Andrew Morrison:
    Andy's February show has two hours of great music from the likes of Errors, Alex Canasta, Gabriel Bruce, Stealing Sheep, New Order, Chromatics, Purity Ring, The Caretaker, Soulsavers and Peace. Scott returns with a Funky Five Minutes, and Andy's father Barry introduces another tune from his record collection.

    Gareth Main:
    The first show from Gareth in 2013 is his first vinyl-only extravaganza, taking in new records from Roots Manuva, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and The Bug, as well as more obscure cuts from Peru, Italy, Sweden, Japan, and even Scotland. There's a cut of classic French groove from Marcel Zanini, a reissued b-movie soundtrack from Michael Perilstein, and library music from Canadian composer Harry Forbes.

    Elsewhere in the hour is a random selected record from Gareth's collection - a dangerous game of Russian Roulette for a man who owns a 2x12" gatefold vinyl called 'Shape Up For Motherhood' - a blast of Turkish funk, and a snippet of the first release on Gareth's GM Sounds label.

    Festive 50:
    Continuing a Christmas tradition started by the late BBC broadcaster John Peel in 1976, an assortment of our DJs will be counting down through the best 50 tracks from 2012, as voted for by listeners to Dandelion Radio. Neil Jenkins, Pete Jackson, Mark Whitby, Rocker, Rachael Neiman, Andrew Morrison and take it in turns to reveal the chart in reverse order, with Jeff Grainger announcing this year's winner! The show will broadcast daily (at different times) from Christmas Day until the end of January.

    Andrew Morrison:
    Andy's first show for 2013 features three hours of tracks from the very best releases over the last year - the vast majority of which you won't have heard him play before - including Human Don't Be Angry, The Horn The Hunt, Team Ghost, Breton, Ghost Society, The Twilight Sad, Errors, Stealing Sheep and many more. There's another chance to hear a couple of session tracks recorded exclusively for the show in the last twelve months from Cygnus X-1 and Atomizer, along with Scott's Funky Five Minutes. …

    Andrew Morrison:
    Andy crams a whopping 39 tunes into his 3-hour August show, featuring the 'Lord Numb Love-In 2', following on from the first guest appearance in May 2011, with three sessions from Lord Numb, his associate Spidersleg and The Reject Club - the name under which both acts collaborate. New music includes 2:54, Scuba, Spoek Mathambo, Savages, Totally Extinct Enormous Dinosaurs, Human Don’t Be Angry, Breton, Pure Love and Madeon; there’s three Andy’s Old Chestnuts from 1982, 1984 and 1987; plus a brilliant 12” New Order jukebox selection from 1989.

    Gareth Main:
    It might not be healing of the Marvin Gaye variety, but there's something undeniably sexual about the funky masterwork that opens this month's Dandelion show by Gareth Main. Taken from the 1968 Lady in Cement OST - recently reissued on Harkit.
    Don't worry though, that only prepares the patient for a brutal tearing open via the noise of Ancient Methods' remix of Delusions from Spain's Ballistic label and thrashing guitars of Ty Segall off US label In the Red. …

So listen in, for a backwards glance at some of Andy's classic Dandelion selections, and a succinct summary of the type of records that he loves playing on his show.

    Gareth Main:
    After the best part of a year away from Dandelion, Gareth returns with a heavily digidub infused two hours, featuring incredible Doncaster MC Parly B as well as Alpha Steppas, Soom T and Pupajim.
    It's not all dub though, as always, there's a mix of the weird and wonderful…
