I thought that I really ought to record a podcast in 2012; after all, it’s only 11 months since the last one.  So I took a day off work to remind myself how it’s done (and to do a couple of other things).  Anyway, it does seem to be all coming back.

If you want to look at my photos: here’s my photo-blog.

The 7 songs played today –

My Hit Song by John Parkes

I Love The Way You seal a Deal by Santah

Lock Me Up by Asatron

Karmageddon by Abbe May

B.O.T.S by Briscoe

Graham Calendar by Goodbye Motel

All Coming Back To You  by The Steals (the Soap Company remix)

video of electrical language 226

6 months after the last episode of electrical language, I am back.  For all kinds of reasons, including those mentioned in the podcast, I needed to take a break.

Podcast 226 was recorded in my friend Mark’s studio. in both video and audio format.  Even more worrying for me, it was all done in one take, in real time, so if I stumbled over my words there was no going back to do it again.  But it was fun, so I think we’ll do this again from time to time if Mark will let me.

By the way, Mark is the presenter of TTFN.TV – have a look.  And here are some photos taken in his studio.

I was hopelessly unprepared.  When I arrived at the studio I had not even chosen the songs.  I went through e-mails of song submissions over about the last 2 months, and chose 7 songs which all turned out to be really good.  I also slipped in a couple of older songs.

So, here they are:

Mic Check by Michael Sharpe

Spinning Into You by Blind Divine

Give Up by Low Roar

Drown Part 1 by Michael Sharpe

My Friend by Tom Jeefs

Dead Sound by The Raveonettes

Anything and As Long As I Don’t Cry by Bus Stop Dreams

Heather Nova vs Johnny Cash by Venture Electric

A shorter podcast, as the last 2 long ones are taking a lot of space on the Libsyn server.  This week I bring you 6 new songs.  I have cleared out a lot of old stuff from my “audition list” and am stocking up with fresher material.  We start with 2 gentler songs by 2 of my favourite female vocalists, then build up, ending with a couple of great rock tracks by a local band.

Freer by Naked Woods

Boys Don’t Cry by The Endless

The Chameleon by Paul E. Phonics

One Night Stand by Mr Smith

Take Me Down and Grey by Gideon’s Demise


The soundbed music is Dansi Dans by For A Minor Reflection.  The title music is by Tragic Shell Suit Disaster.
