Edinburgh Man #226

March 3rd, 2016

Remember last week when I said I’d played the last single by The Last Battle? Well, I didn’t. It was the second last. Here’s the last one on tonight’s show, and it’s a belter. The single that is, not the show. The show is… well… you know… mildly acceptable. Also featured are new tracks from The Second Hand Marching Band & Benni Hemm Hemm, Little Big Bangs, and more. In fact, one of the tracks on the show has mysteriously vanished from the Internets, but since I plan these things so far in advance I’ve still got a copy… If only I’d taken down some information about the artist when I downloaded the track.

On the ball as ever. I recorded this podcast earlier on this evening and then totally forgot about it. Here we are, as I’m locking up the house and getting ready for bed I think – “I’m sure there was something else I was going to do tonight”… Oh yeah, upload a podcast.

On tonight’s show new singles from Storm the Palace and The Last Battle. Tracks from new albums by Witching Waves and Great Thunder & Radiator Hospital. And a track from six years ago by cars & trains.

A lunchtime recorded podcast this week, and another one featuring Edinburgh Man Junior as the cover star. He’s starting to get big enough to actually be useful now. Here he is shuffling snow. As I record this episode, with the sun streaming through the window in the middle of the day, it’s hard to believe there was even just a light dusting of snow a few days ago. That said, it’s still damn cold…

On today’s show… no tapes I’m afraid. But some great music from Leggy, The Mountain Goats, Tiger Waves and more.

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.

2. Tieranniesaur – “Intro” (Played courtesy of Soft Power Records)
3. Tieranniesaur – “DIYSCO” (Played courtesy of Soft Power Records)
4. The Spook School – “I Don’t Know” (Played courtesy of The Spook School / Soft Power Records)
5. Wounded Knee – “Love is Teasin'” (Played courtesy of Gerry Loves Records)
6. Randolph’s Leap – “I Can’t Dance To This Music Anymore” (Played courtesy of Peenko Records)
7. Trust Fund – “Sadness” (Played courtesy of Trust fund, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
