The holidays and the annual Festive 50 are soon approaching. So what were your faves of the year so far? Drop me a line and let me know. They might just be tabulated in the show's year end countdown.
Nothing excites me more as a music fan then when your fave band releases new material. But when the band breaks up you have to wait for the elusive solo album to come out. Some artists have no problem releasing new material, others it takes a while. That is the case with the 2 new tracks I'm psyched about tonight.
Firstly, we have David Newton from everybody's fave leather clad indie rockers from the late 80s, early 90s, Mighty Lemon Drops. He's resurfaced in David Newton & Thee Mighty Angels. They have just released a new EP called Paint The Town. We feature the title track tonight. Get ready for more coming our fave Lemon Drop/Angel!
David Newton & Thee Mighty Angels- "Paint The Town"
Second up is the enchanting Kate Jackson. The former Long Blonde, not Charlie's Angel (North Americans always seem to comment on her name). It's been 3 long years since the demise of Long Blondes. Kate is back and worked with Bernard Butler on her new single Wonder Feeling. We feature the title track tonight. It's like she's only been gone a mere moment.
