The Bill session is very nice indeed, stormingly proggy Mastodon... some nice chat esp. goodwill to Tim; and a charming Marc Riley 6Music jingle in full Drake/Cardiacs style, i hope he was well recompensed for such commercial activity.

Here's a link to just the session, so you don't have to patiently wade through the rest of the stuff: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p010f7pq

Radcliffe and Maconie - right now - someone has picked Day Is Gone for "The Chain" section :D

I think that's only the second time our beloved Cardiacs have featured on The Chain

I love 6Music :D

cheers

Steve

This is a might-be-Twitching, so we'll see what happens.

I'm half of a duo called Two Fingers, and I'm going to be on Lauren Laverne's BBC 6Music show on Friday morning to talk about a Memory Tape that they asked us to put together. It's an imaginary compilation of tracks that are linked with events in your life, or that have influenced you, or that you'd want people to hear (and by "you" I mean "me": get your own Twitching). They'll be playing 6 tracks from the list, so I have no idea what will get played.

It's difficult to balance a choice against the likelihood of it getting played and the chance that they'd be able to find a copy to play, so I went for "Ain't He Messy Though" since that's probably the track I would play to someone to ease them into Tim Smith's music comfortably. They've asked me if there's any particular track from the list that I'd be most keen for them to include in the programme, and I've told them I would choose this one. Ultimately it's down to what they think their audience will accept.

As in Amon Tobin? Cool. There was just a discussion about the appearance of Cardiacs/Sea Nymphs choons in his sets :shock: Most apposite... :)

6Music has a good track record for playing Cardiacs :D I don't recall hearing anything off Guns being played on 6Music before though.... I shall eschew Ken Bruce and Popmaster and listen to Lauren's show on Friday.

cheers

Yes, that Two Fingers :)

After the first two LPs, I sat out for Stunt Rhythms but I'll be back on the next one.

A great choice - I've long thought this to be one of their most radio-friendly. I really enjoy Lauren Laverne's show - she strikes me as a good egg. Let's see if she is or not!

She IS a good egg :D How great to hear that on the radio. And I love that she read your further comments about them and even corrected herself when she said The Cardiacs.

That made my day - thank you Mr Doubleclick.

Yes, it was excellent, some splendid choices, and some fine words about Cardiacs and Tim.

I have to say I knew far more of the tracks from Amon's list though!

(full list here : http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/laurenlaverne/)
