Adam Walton playlist and show info: Saturday 21 April 2012

This week's show is now available on the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.

It has been a busy old week. First off, I DJd a very good friend's wedding. It wasn't your typical wedding DJ set, featuring - as it did - wild handbrake turns from Steps to Mclusky, and the image of the groom up on everyone's shoulders, bellowing along to The Flaming Lips' Do You Realize??, will live with me for a very long time indeed.

Those raucous celebrations ran into the start of Focus Wales, a city-based festival held in Wrexham. The festival is in its second year. Ninety-ish artists played over four nights. In short, it was ACE, despite my only being able to attend for the first two nights. A review on the BBC Wales Music pages is imminent - for the time being, you can enjoy We Are Animal live from Central Station during this week's show. It's rhythmic, primal and blinking great.

Away from the festival stages and bars, Alan Holmes waxes Punjabi about Charged; Lara Catrin translates Gildas, and Ben 'Soundhog' Hayes treats us to a bit of Killer Watts.

In between the talkie bits, oodles of ace music. Including début plays for The Bagel Project, The Black Music Workshop, Jack Dixon, Ocean City, The Knuckledowns, Enbe, Gavner P, Ben Lloyd, Richard Readey, Silver/Back/Club, Tea That Burns and the Joe Webb Trio.

Shows stats for 2012 currently stand like this: 528 unique songs out of 621 Total. 351 Artists in 17 shows since 1 January 2012 (songs per show: 37; unique artists per show: 21) Welsh: 94%.

Not that I'm obsessed with statistics. Oh, no.

How to submit music:

  1. Be good
  2. Send your (single) best track to me. An mp3/download link to themysterytour@gmail.com
  3. I get a couple of hundred submissions every week. I'll get back to you if I play you, or if I think I can offer constructive advice.
