November on Artrocker Radio
Crucially we at last had the release of the Wolf People album. This meant that the embargo on playing tracks was lifted and I was free to indulge myself and listeners – it also meant a pre-recorded show at lunch-time to allow myself and researcher Lewis, to attend Wolf People’s launch gig. I think I also gave myself a similar luxury to witness a real first – John Carpenter playing his film scores live for the first time ever. The band were excellent- moody, dark, and fuzzed up – the montage of film clips were choice (and certainly made me want to see ‘ They Live’), and those new recordings, ‘Lost Soundtracks’ are perhaps even stronger material than the original soundtracks …. and that’s saying something.
Elsewhere; Traams returned to majorly excellent form; Domkraft unveiled a brilliant heavy space-rock album; Petrol Girls debut album was streamed by The Inpependent (I kid you not); Fuzz Club released an outstanding ‘stocking-filler’ of a compilation with ‘The Reverb Conspiracy Vol 4’; and some great lo-fi post punk from Ill, Duck, Ravioli me away, Olimpia Splendid, Nachthexen.
