Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
You'll have to excuse the state of your presenter's voice this month as Thomas (writing this in the third person) has a new disease called covid and has been languishing in bed listening to Damo Suzuki live recordings, which is why this show starts with Can from German telly in 1971.
Also from the seventies is Essential Logic whose Peel session is about to become available on 10” vinyl, otherwise it's largely new goodness from Aya, Emily Wurramara, Jess Ribeiro, Cerrot and the like.
There's a Record Store Day recommendation from Prince Far I and a record collecting life recommendation from the new split 7” by Hearts and Rockets and Cong Josie.

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.
