Edinburgh Man #223

January 24th, 2016

Aw man. I think this is only the second time in the history of the podcast that I recorded a show and it didn’t actually record and I had to record the whole thing again. It was already a technological juggling act because I played all the music tracks “as live” from cassette! I know, I know. Be prepared to experience wobbly music and non-Dolby hiss.

Edinburgh Man #222

January 14th, 2016

In a change from the usual yearly routine Edinburgh Man is not taking a break for the month of January, although you’d be forgiven for not realising this since there wasn’t a show last week. Never mind, we kick the year off today with chat about retro technology and a track from a new cassette by Baker Island.

Also on the show tracks from Jo Mango (with RM Hubbert), “Not” Spot Collins, and Plastic Animals. Sounds like a great start to 2016…

Best of 2015

January 1st, 2016

It’s the Edinburgh Man Best of 2015 show!

If you listened to the show throughout 2015 you’ll know that I had some issues with the regularity of the show in terms of duration, content and release dates. Normally at the end of the year I produce two shows comprising a listener voted top 50 tracks of the year. This year, I just didn’t have the time to devote to putting such a show together. However, in making the “weekly” shows I stick a rating in the comments field of the tracks – this helps me select the music for each show. So this year, instead of doing a listener selection, I just sorted all the tracks I played by my rating, and out popped a 25 track show! No more thought and preparation has gone into this show – other than pouring myself a big glass of Drambuie – so it’s likely to be as much of a surprise to me as you.

25. Dearness – “It’s OK, You’re Fine” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
24. Arm Candy – “Lounge Lizard” (Played courtesy of Arm Candy, Released under a Creative Commons licence)

Edinburgh Man #221

December 24th, 2015

It’s almost Christmas… which can only mean one thing. No more Lego Advent Calendar! Hooray. Hopefully this will mean longer sleeps, and it will definitely mean a reduction in the amount of Lego construction that Edinburgh Man Junior requests at some ungodly hour every morning.

The last regular podcast of the year. Next week will be a 2015 round-up. Not the normal top 50 show voted by listeners because your erstwhile host has been working up until yesterday and hasn’t had the time to pull of the organisational craziness required. So I’m just going to play a couple of hours worth of my favourites tracks of 2015.

1. Book Group – “Late Show” (Played courtesy of Book Group)
2. General Sherman – “Cajun bubbles” (Played courtesy of Spooker Rekkids)
3. The Paperback Throne – “No Mean Christmas” (Played courtesy of The Paperback Throne)
4. Psychic Soviets – “I Become a Feminist” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. Loone – “All Pacing Horses” (Played courtesy of Loone / Paper Bee, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. The Mountain Goats – “This Year” (Played courtesy of archive.org / The Mountain Goats)
