Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
This month's Thomas show is coming direct to you from one of Melbourne's new Covid hotspots, on the cusp of a new wave, which sounds more chic than it is. And less terrifying. Mopero certainly has something to say about that, but another rather topical theme also keeps popping up in recent singles from Terrace Martin, YG, Barkaa and Hanger Management. See if you can guess what it is.
We have a few tasters from anticipated albums (including Beans, Special Interest, Gordon Koang, 700 Bliss, etc.) and one minor hit from a band that's already split up (about cutting your own hair in quarantine). Two of the songs in the show mention onions. And did you know The Shaggs were on Bandcamp? Hard not to be these days.

Biography:

Thomas Blatchford was born in Southampton (UK) but has now lived for over a decade in Birraranga (aka Melbourne, Australia). An avid listener to the John Peel show between 2000-2004 (first show: May 3rd 2000, with Kid Koala in session), Thomas tries to make up for the disappointment of never having a Peel session by always being in at least five bands simultaneously (which currently includes - genuinely - an acappella glam metal trio). Thomas previously ran the bedroom record label Fulsome Prism Recordings, and was also involved with another DIY imprint, Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen, way back when. Thomas still occasionally makes fanzines even though it is no longer 1981, and works in a discount bookshop to make ends meet.
