Edinburgh Man #203

April 9th, 2015

So last night I went to see Tigercats, Plastic Animals, and Fever Dream at Henry’s Cellar Bar. It was the first standing up gig I’ve been at all year! I was going to go out again tonight and see Stanley Brinks and Freschard, but more than 14 hours of standing yesterday seems to have had an adverse reaction on this old man’s back.

However, earlier on today, before I’d decided to spend this evening lying down rather than tapping my foot to French anti-folk, I recorded this podcast as I walked to work. Yep – it’s one of those outside broadcasts recording on an iPhone!

On tonight’s podcast:

1) I use a flimsy looking iPad stand – let’s hope it doesn’t fall over halfway through with “hilarious” consequences.

2) Edinburgh Man Junior sings random lyrics to “The Farmers in the Dell” loudly from the other room. No doubt this isn’t picked up by the microphone and you probably assume it’s all in my head.

3) I have notes! On paper! And I manage to get even more confused as a result.

4) I summarily dismiss the talents of the creator of one of the seminal TV shows of the last century because of the way he ate a sandwich.

April 2nd, 2015

Time for another exciting edition of the Edinburgh Man Podcast! And again, it’s not a live show. I’ve done something to the live server so that it won’t stream for more than 5 minutes. I will fix it at some point, but not tonight because, as always, I’ve left it all to the last minute.

Actually, I haven’t left everything to the last minute. I did a whole load of preparation for tonight’s show, including writing notes while I had my coffee this morning! Shocking. Will this professionalism be reflected in the quality of the show? Probably not.

1. Rough Shape – “Michigan State Hospital” (Played courtesy of Rough Shape, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
2. Sei Yamamoto – “Hakuro-jo Castle” (Played courtesy of Sei Yamamoto, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
3. Garden Of Elks – “This Morning We Are Astronauts” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
4. Fake Species – “We Are The Ones” (Played courtesy of Fake Species, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. Winter – “Strange Emotions” (Played courtesy of Winter, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. Apache Viking – “Magic Dudes” (Played courtesy of Bleeding Gold Records)
7. Woodpigeon – “When You Look For Trouble, Trouble Comes” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)

Edinburgh Man #200

March 31st, 2015

Oh, hello. Apologies for the lack of podcasts for the last two weeks. For the first week I came down with an unpleasant dose of tonsillitis, so I thought it best to postpone. And this time last week we were off to the sick kids hospital with Edinburgh Man Junior, so podcasting wasn’t really at the forefront of our minds. Anyway, the good news is that everyone is healthy again so normal service can resume.

It’s that all important podcast number 200! Except it’s not really. I suspect podcast number 177 was actually the 200th show. So on that note there’s not much special about tonight’s show. Well – other than the usual outstanding podcasting professionalism, of course.

1. The Tuts – “Do I Have to Look for Love?” (Played courtesy of The Tuts)
2. Jonnie Common – “Binary 101″ (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
3. DIET CIG – “Breathless” (Played courtesy of DIET CIG)
4. the second hand marching band – “A Dance to Half Death” (Played courtesy of the second hand marching band, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. David Thomas Broughton & Juice – “In Service” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
6. olivia blu – “spirits like moths” (Played courtesy of olivia blu, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
