South Live

Birdpen doing a weird video.

On Air: 18.06.06

It's an unusual blend of acts this week, because we like to bring variety and spice of life to the air-waves on a Sunday afternoon. Prepare to be educated!

Dans Musical Facts

  • Just because you don't like a track or act it doesn't mean it's / they're rubbish.
  • The scale system we use in the west is only one interpretation of tonal quality.
  • You don't have to be 'precious' about your songs for them to work.
  • Even the recorder is a great instrument in the right hands.

The Technoillogical Myopia exist between the fragile musings of a warped mind and the tender touch of an angel. Other-worldly, born of the subconscious mind interjected with rock guitars, stonking kit and jagged vocals the are a breed apart from our usual Sunday offerings.

To follow this we have Mister Tamborine Man, Ben Griffith with music that will have you dancing about in the countryside.

This week's demos are a trio of acoustic based acts:

Colin Hare with his track 'Civilisation Progressive Blues' which has a Dire Straits kind of feel with more contemporary rhythm. Nick Barnes, his track 'Down To The River' and The Mighty High Times with 'My Love For You Won't Die'

The demo panel will be here with their balanced ears and wealth of experience to give these acts their opinions about the tracks and to mark them out of ten. The scores are then totaled up and the winner will get to come on the show on the following Sunday and tell us what they are up to.

Thank's to Luke Higgins, Southern Counties Radio world cup songwriter (watch out any A&R bods out there Luke is one to watch!) who was interviewed on Sunday about his track 'Stand Up For England'. Thank's also to Skyline Heroes' Ben Gourley, cellist Robert Cohen from Charleston Manor and  Nickleback's Daniel Adare for their contributions.

Belated thank you to all the acts who played on South Live during the May Festival in Brighton and indeed to all the acts who played the evening show during the Festival. A selection of those tracks are available elsewhere on the site. Thank you to Birdpen for their post festival session on June 4, you can hear a track from their session at the top of this page.
