Chaos reigned supreme this week, as an entire band tried to exit the studio whilst Trick set up and Tom was left stuck in traffic while things went on-air. So: not a textbook start then, but no matter! Why? Because we still rolled out some mighty fine tunes for your ears…
Starting with the unsigned loveliness of Rupert Lally (see Blog section for a free download of it too!), we took in a track from Fink’s forthcoming – and very, very excellent – Sort Of Revolution LP, some 70s mellow rock from Sopwith Camel, some african beat bootleg action, the millenial Dischord brilliance of Q And Not U and also a mighty fine cover of the Velvet’s “Rock and Roll” courtesy of Mitch Ryder.
Get stuck in! Oh, and keep an eye/ear out for some aural treats appearing in the Blog section too…

Here was the Featured Video for this week’s show:
Rupert Lally is a producer whose work I had played on Rhythm Incursions before now, notably 3 tracks from his debut LP “Feral” on one of our minifeatures. Since then though, he’s been off working on new material and got back in touch recently to see what I thought of it.
One of the tracks that really leapt out at me was this one, Disco Volante. Rupert’s given us the all-clear to offer it up here, so grab the download if you liked what you heard on the show (or just grab it anyway if you didn’t hear it being aired!) and see what you reckon. Check Rupert out on his MySpace page – hell drop by and say hi if you liked the track!
Oh and did I mention Rupert is currently unsigned? Labels: take note!
I’m a little late off the starting blocks with this one as I was hoping to tie it in with last week’s celeb spesh but as threatened I eventually took half an hour out of my demanding daytime tv schedule to get my teeth into the almost good “Hello Hello” by Brown Sauce AKA the three headed beast that was Philbin, Chegwin & Edmonds. I couldn’t tell you whether this was a Milli Vanilli-esque vanity project or the three of them really did miss their calling as metronomical session behemoths however u can now (perhaps) enjoy the good groove of the Swap Shop theme without the intrusion of the nasty synth horn fanfare.
In a concerted effort to balance out this somewhat tawdry entry I’m also upping an MP3 sent over by the nice folk at All Young Kings who’ve given the green light to pass around a new track from a Transatlantic lady by the name of Shaunsie who’s “Masudasante Naima” wont be rolling off most people’s tongues in a hurry but should definitely be blowing up a few speaker boxes with it’s creeping round midnight swing growing into a deep 4am lope of a beat. There isn’t much more info I can give you but definitely someone to keep your eye on in the coming months.
… and, if you can get through all that, we bring you the usual broad spread of tracks taking in Ninja Tune’s finest artist (in Trick’s humble opinion) Yppah, the telecaster brilliance of one-time Byrds associate Clarence White, the cosmic music of John & Alice Coltrane, newies Sound Species and a phenomenal half-time groove from one-time dancehall man Eric Delaney.
After much raving on the show about Clarence White and why he’s such an underrated (to some at least) guitar legend, it only seems right to direct you to this excellent post covering the very period played on the show (i.e. pre-Byrds, post bluegrass pickin’). Go take a read, trust me its worth it – with plenty of audio to dig through too.
Also, be sure to check the Twitter feed where pics were posted from the show along with various comments etc. Remember, to contribute, just sign up to Twitter and start your message with “@trickandtom” and it will find its way to us.
