Daedelus, Wizards Sleeve + Blah Blah Blah

Huw Stephens Huw Stephens | 10:20 UK time, Thursday, 8 June 2006

I think Tuesday's show went with a certain bang. So many amazing records in there - the Beyond the Wizards Sleeve compilation is really good, I need to investigate more. Some lovely Bat For Lashes too, new dub from Richie Phoe, two corking unsigned tracks from Scouting For Girls and Flies Are Spies From Hell and so much more!

Today I went to Maida Vale where Daedelus was recording his session for next weeks show. It sounded amazing with Welsh rappers Diwygiad (Reformation) collaborating on the tracks. On the down side, their car was first fined and then clamped and towed away while they were recording the session. Good name for a hip hop album though - Fined and Clamped... in stores now!

I enjoyed DJing at the Tired and Lonesome night at the Social in London. Twas good to meet Mike from the label who've released some really great records by Kid Carpet, Polysics and Robochrist. I played the Four Tet remix of Archie Bronson Units new single, Peter Bjorn and John, Nouvelle Vague (I'll hate it within a month, maybe) and some ELO for good measure. Blah Blah Blah played an ace set on the double bass and giiiitar - like George Formby with added cockneyness!

Today I listen to records, pre record my Radio Cymru show, and then enjoy Vito in session on the Beth and Huw show tonight from Cardiff. Have a good Thursday!

    was really terrible.
    apart from that everything is cool...
    keep on the good work.

    Hi Huw,
    If you like Belgium (and music in Belgium!) you should really check out the Pukkel Pop festival in August. www.pukkelpop.be
    Take care xx
