Thought-forms are actully one of the best talents of wiltshire i've heard in a looong time. there much different to the same old same old we get these days.

Only just listened to this. Ace show! Particuarly loving The Operation, Subluminal and The Panic.

Great show!!, some really raw talent, it's shows like this that keep the growing potential of bands in this region alive and in the public eye. It's high time the south west got the props it deserves for the wealth of music it keeps secret! check out Bath based harmony rockin outfit K-gari, proper songs!

Fantastic show. It'd be a crime if this finished after only a few shows - it's already doing huge amounts to help out all those highly talented bands to get a little much deserved attention.

excellent work... was so surprised to hear about this show... and very very pleeeased!! keep it up!

Souls, amazing aint really a good enough word to describe them. Really i though they should have won the moles battle of the bands as they were by far the best band there, musically as well as visually. i'd like to hear more of them on the radio as they are what our music indusrty needs. thnks for playing it the beast!!

Just wondering if you're planning on doing a feature on Melksham band Thought Forms, who recently won the final of the 2005 Moles Clubs "Battle of the Bands". I heard them in an earlier heat and I have to say I thought they were brilliant - really original. Any chance you could cover them on your show?
