Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
January is usually an odd month for The Thomas Show on Dandelion, and really what is there to look forward to in 2023 other than the new Blonde Revolver album?
But the show is laced with extra sadness this year, being recorded on the day Terry Hall died, and would be a complete downer without excellent new stuff from Wildfire Manwurrk, Nightwave, Clara Hope and former session guests CRASH THE SUPERYACHT, amongst others.
The ghost of Festive Fifties past arrives in the form of Ballboy and something by Art Brut makes your host well up.
Plus there's some jazz! Deal with it!

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.
