dentists + ollie

Last Monday we were joined in our shiny new studio by three quarters of the legendary Dentists, whose 1985 debut album Some People Are On The Pitch They Think Its All Over It Is Now has been gloriously remastered and reissued on vinyl by Trouble In Mind Records. We invited Theatre Royal’s front man Oliver Burgess to come and interview Bob, Ian and Mark and play a few tracks from the album, and that’s what he did. You can listen again here…

Listen Again to the 20th May Show with Kids Unique

KU Collage

On Monday we were visited by Adam and Dan from Kids Unique, who popped in to chat about their music, soca, owls and all sorts of other things. Very entertaining it was too. So entertaining, in fact, that Fizzer disappeared off up that London to see the band at the Proud Gallery and didn’t come home for days. When he did, he was muttering “wide on” over and over again, and we had to prise the recording of Monday’s show from his clammy fingers, hence the relative lateness of this post.

Here’s the show. Enjoy!
