Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
Apparently it's now September (you could've told me it was still May and I would've accepted it) and Melbourne is in Stage 4 Lockdown, which is a bit like being grounded for two months for not washing your hands. Recorded post-curfew, Thomas brings you a bumper three-hour, forty-song wingding while police helicopters circle above the neighbourhood.
What do we have here? New chunks of albums by the likes of Katie Dey, Neil O'hardty, No Home and Gaika, an exploration into endometriosis surgery by Nunsploitation, two songs from 2008 by pure coincidence, Big Joanie's magnificent new Solange cover, and a live recording from Philadelphia in June by Sour Spirit. Songs by actual children and actual birds, and at least two titles I had to take a run up to say (hello to you, 'Okandjambameya' and 'Excreta Related Epidemics and the Significance of Salient Sanitation').
Thanks so much for listening, you pass the litmus test.

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.
