Them 'Tones, Them 'Tones...
Well, I never did present the Friday radio show standing up. My BBC consultant had proposed the deal but I was fatigued, it didn’t feel right and hey, it was close to midnight. But I did try to get the links a bit more tidy, and I enthused more precisely, instead of wittering without an actual point. That’s the best we can hope for just now.
Anyway, the playlist made me happy, and it was only fair to plug the new Undertones album, a couple of weeks in a row. Most of the songs are less than two minutes long, the O’ Neill brothers play like circus knife-throwers and a song called ‘Fight My Corner’ is possibly the best thing I’ve heard this year. I’ve written a review for the Across The Line website. You can read it here.
Stu Bailie presents The Late show on Radio Ulster, every Friday from 10pm until midnight. See his playlist here.
