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:
Ordinarily our last show of the month is a theme one, but this month we felt we’d deviated from the standard show format a fair bit, and so hence this week we eschew the thematic take to bring you, er, well two loose themes of sorts.
For my part, the tracks are 100% new releases; quite a shock to anyone who listens regularly and hears my ranting about the quality of new releases. Tom, on the other hand, steps up with a fistful of Acid Jazz-related tracks, with a concerted attempt to shed more light on the lesser-known gems of a label traditionally associated with Corduroy and the James Taylor Quartet.
So, get listening below to hear tracks from Thavius Beck, Tyondai Braxton, Mother Earth, United Future Organisation and more…
Mother Earth “Riot On 103rd St”
Thavius Beck “Go (Offshore Remix)”
United Future Organization “My Foolish Dream”
Fink “See It All”
Benjamin Zephaniah “Dry”
Tyondai Braxton “Opening Bell”
Modulations “Rough Out Here”
Soundbed this week was various tracks from the new Blockhead album “The Music Scene”.

Featured video for this week isn’t a musical one per se – its Tyondai Braxton talking about his Central Market album, which has remained glued to the Mr Trick Listening Post since I got my hands on it…
