Apologies for the slight delay in recording the show. We took last week off as Carwyn from Colorama and Nev Cottee were playing in Manchester. The concerts were part of a final farewell to the much loved city centre venue, The Roadhouse.
It's been the scene of many of the crimes of our youth and although it's hosting lots of sold out club nights over the next month, this intimate concert was the perfect way for us to say goodbye.
Carwyn was on fine form, treating us to stripped back solo versions of Colorama classics (and Eighty Six favourites too, thank you) like, 'Sound', 'Turnham Green', 'I Can't Give you More Than Everything' and 'Hapus'. Support came from Nev Cottee, showcasing tacks from his new brilliant new LP 'Strange News Form the Sun' and backed by a full band.
This show features Jif and TC down in the basement on the week when summer arrived in the UK. Look out in this show for 'Follow the Sun' a track for the new Nev Cottee LP, coming out in June on the always excellent Wonderful Sound record label. The show also features an exclusive play of new music from Professor Yaffle with Everything and Nothing. There's a track from the new Sufjan Stevens' LP and the 50th release on Paul 'Mudd' Murphy's Claremont 56 record label, Paraiso. There's also a track from the early potential album of the year from Fabiano Do Nascimento with a beauty called Tupi.
Record Store Day was last week and it saw the release of the latest very limited Aficionado, 4 track 10". This was exclusively played by Moonboots when he was on the show in January but RSD gave us the opportunity to finally own it on vinyl. We finished the show choosing to playing Half Silk: Delicious Crime, which is a brilliant solo outing by Ryan from Horsebeach.
