Post categories:

Producer Will Producer Will | 22:14 UK time, Friday, 8 April 2011


So there we had it – the first ever Now Playing @6Music, are you back sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin with the debrief.


This week we focussed on the last live performance of LCD Soundsystem at Madison Square Garden – tracks from, which inspired, or were inspired by the iconic indie-electro band ran through the show and varied from the Velvet Underground to Hercules and Love Affair.


We also had the leaking of the Beastie Boys new track – the troubleseome New York white boys are making a comeback with Make Some Noise as well as a promo video featuring some of Hollywood’s A-List such as Will Ferrell, Elijah Wood and Jack Black.


We had contributions from Abeano, Drowned in Sound and Music OMH while the Twitter, e-mail, Facebook and text were red hot throughout the show - and this is how Now Playing @6Music shaped up on its debut outing, and how you told us about them.
