Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
According to the Elle Magazine headline I just read, "It's Officially Scorpio Season, So Get Horny For Vengeance", but if that sounds too hectic a request just settle in with your cyber-wireless and enjoy Thomas' official first anniversary show on fabulous Dandelion Radio. That's right, Thomas has been on this station for a year now, and to celebrate there's a bundle of sonic curiosities for your amusement and delight, all presented while your host patiently waits for the new Robyn album to be released and (*fingers crossed*) efficiently tear his ribcage in twain.
What do you fancy? We've got: a wide, wild ride from Nkisi; the slight return of LAPS; sweetness from Blood Orange and bitterness from Farai; business from Marie Davidson and pleasure from Surfbort; plus bits of new retrospectives from Super Furry Animals, Smith & Mighty, and the Basement Beehive label. Not only that, but a very good excuse to spin one of the twentieth century's greatest cultural artefacts, and the return of Bertha the german robot. (ps. Thanks to Cystic Nightmare and Mixed Infants for lending their voices this month.)

Thomas Blatchford is a man born in Southampton that has now lived for the best part of a decade in Melbourne, Australia. He was an avid listener to the John Peel show between 2000-2004 (first show: May 3rd 2000, with Kid Koala in session) and is still gutted he never got to have a Peel session. He has previously run the bedroom record label Fulsome Prism Recordings, and was also involved with another DIY imprint, Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen, way back when. He is in at least four bands at the moment including - genuinely - an acappella glam metal trio. He still regularly makes fanzines even though it is no longer 1981, and runs annual Melbourne zine fair Festival Of The Photocopier. He has a cat called Sarah and a rabbit called Milk, neither of them named after the record labels, just a coincidence.
