Radio Wunderbar #33 – Speedo special with Welsh bands + music from Scottish band Aereogramme
Gary Speed tribute special featuring music from Welsh bands and a couple of plays of Scottish group Aereogramme, underground alt heroes of the last decade who were once signed to Matador records. There were also football themed song titles including “I’m Not A Substitute” by Jay Reatard and “From A Terrace” by Hey Marseilles.
The inclusion of Aereogramme in this week’s show was quite random, after I recalled the band while telling a story about Funeral For A Friend. I’m grateful for RW listener J.K. for sending me some Aereogramme music live on the show – listener participation, yes!! I still have a strong memory of an intense Aereogramme set in Inverness, Scotland way back in October 2004. Aeorgramme were compelling. Their music features lots of experimentation. I chatted with Craig from the band after the show (see the picture below from the Music Vice archives). Aereogramme’s back catalogue is well worth seeking out – I am happily rediscovering their music myself.
Episode 33 ended with a status update: the first year of doing this show has been great but right now we are looking for help to continue the show. To allow the show to continue and grow to it’s full potential, we are now strongly considering taking things ‘on the road’ with mobile broadcasting from new locations. This means sourcing some equipment and locations. The search begins for possible sponsors or companies who may wish to partner with us so we can make this happen and so that we can continue to bring great new indie music to you!
Thanks for listening! Until next time: Be kind to your mothers and true to your lovers. …And long live indie! – Brian
