News Knit May 23

It was Victoria Day and all so I filled up the airwaves with some warm spring-summer jams. Plenty of new shit stuff this week to fill your hats with, of particular interest is numero group's new sampler "An Alternate History of Popular Music" stretching from some classic blues of the late 50s to some excellent knock-off powerpop of the mid 80's. Also the new Booker T. album is surprisingly awesome. Cool stuff. - Joe

New Shiver May 16, 2011

The image of the small grouping of sea forts that were originally linked together by steel walkways build in the Thames and Mersey Estuaries in the 2nd WW keep on coming up in different contexts - my favourite has nothing to do with them being used as anti-aircraft outposts, but with pirate radio.....
they all have super rad names like shivering sands, red sands, nore. I would like to make some radio out there one day - i'll look into it
