Leo Gilbert

On my show this month:
Three hours of wonderfulness from Leo this month. Tunes from (almost) every single continent on the globe, most of which have been released over the past couple of months. 34 bands, 20 of whom Leo has never played before! How's that for new?
Relative old hands are Mark Lanegan (the only artist with two tunes in the show), Dominik Eulberg, Rival Consoles, Amnesia Scanner and Max Cooper.
In with the uninitiated are (among many others) Holodec, Meth Math, Photay, Archie + Lyn, Powell, Dijit and Eartheater.
Music goes along the tunnel, up the M62, moving heat, takes in street scenes, takes a stand for love, heads below the clavicle for movement 6, heads inwards for the foetus of a love song, sees the nightmare at Yoyogi Park, a band, dark blue plastic fantasies and asks is it right.
What can it all mean? Listen in and all will be revealed...

Biography:
I am in many ways your typical John Peel fan. I grew up listening to his shows from the era of punk rock until his death, and, with increasing obsessiveness, compiled cassettes, mini discs and finally mp3 playlists of the best tunes. Music runs through my family’s veins, and in me this takes the form of a compulsive search for new sounds. As John Peel used to put it, what I really want to hear is something I haven’t heard before.

Envy fills me when I read what my Dandelion collaborators have achieved in promoting, making and playing music, but my life as a teacher for the past quarter of a century has squeezed out any time for, well, pretty much anything apart from listening to and appreciating what continues to be made musically across the world. At last, though, I have found the space to pursue what has long been an ambition and can attempt to meet the stellar broadcasting standards set by my volunteer colleagues by sharing my love of new music with Dandelion listeners. I really hope at least some of what you hear gets its hooks into you.
