The Official 2010 Festive Fifty - January 2011
Continuing a Christmas tradition started by the late broadcaster John Peel in 1976, an assortment of our DJs count down through the best 50 tracks from 2010, as voted for by listeners to Dandelion Radio. Mark Cunliffe, Paul Ackroyd, Matt Gunn, Ste, Rocker, Mark Whitby, Pete Jackson, and Andy take it in turns to reveal the chart in reverse order, with Rachael Neiman announcing this year's winner!
To try to keep the suspense in the countdown, the track info is not shown until a few seconds before each song finishes. The show is repeated every day (at different times) until the end of January so if you join in somewhere in the middle, do come back and hear the rest.

Marcelle - January 2011
'DJ Marcelle vs. The Future'
Thanks to the Planet Mu label Marcelle presents the new exciting sound of footwork, a hip dance craze hype from Chicago. The likes of DJ Nate, DJ Rashad and DJ Diamond currently make the most original, never-heard-before sounds. The Belgium Crammed Discs label has invited amongst others Deerhoof, Optimo, Shackleton, Burnt Friedman and Micachu And The Shapes to a musical battle vs. the legendary Congotronic music from Konono No.1 and Kasai All Stars, to name a few. The result is one of the best remix albums ever.
Jamaican dub legend Scientist works very well vs. the dubstep scene and Mississippi Records enchants us with another two blues and gospel compilations. The legendary Golden Pudel Club from Hamburg (where Marcelle is a resident dj) comes with a wicked compilation too and the UK Funky sound, another exciting development in dance music, gets represented by Randomer and Fife.
On a sad note Marcelle pays tribute to the recently deceased Don van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart, by not only playing a Beefheart single but also playing covers of Beefheart songs, showing his huge influence on the (post-) postpunk generations. All this makes this first Marcelle show of 2011 an essential one. And we haven't even mentioned the Look Back Bore records (New Age Steppers, Fire Engines and Clock DVA) and two new releases on the Diskant label (Harmonious Thelonious and The Durian Brothers)!

Mark Cunliffe - January 2011
I'm sooooooo disappointed that, for the first time since 1985, I'll be missing the Fancy Rat and Mouse Annual Show held in Hacienda Heights, California. Unfortunately my cotton mouse, Jeremy, has a reoccurring infectious fungal complaint and it is too big a risk to take him.
However, I'm really hoping this months show will help me get over my disappointment. What have we in store? Mokke's got the AA out, trouble is, he was giving Ryuji Takeuchi a lift to the Mouse And Rat show and he's now missing it too ... Full Crate & FS Green think it is Shrove Tuesday and Elephant Man thinks he's helping the batter mix by trying to Shake It. Shackleton's not into the mouse thing and is entertaining some illegitimate spooks instead and Compound One is Backing Off Grimm cos he's on Fire ...

Mark Whitby - January 2011
An exclusive session of brand new recordings from Hehfu leads the way in a January show filled with new releases, including tracks from albums by Deerhoof, Earthling Society, Braids, The Evolution Control Committee, Wire, The Beets, Deadhorse, Fujiya & Miyagi and Minks.
Also featured are tracks from future 2011 session guests Trevor Sensitive & The Locals and Sugarbrute, demos from EMA and Julien Auroux and a debut of rare quality from The Hogarths.
And, as Dandelion reveals the results of the official 2010 Festive Fifty, we dig out a couple of pearlers from the chart of ten years ago in "Peel Back & Sniff" and there's a poignant choice of a track that may have graced a festive fifty of 1970, had their been one, from the peerless and greatly missed Captain Beefheart.

Paul Ackroyd - January 2011
This time out it's a three hours long installment of Kamikaze and, as ever, is full to the brim with astounding records. In experimental nonsense this month Mark Fell of SND has been a busy lad, releasing two albums in the past few weeks, so there's a track from each of them, plus a track from Marcus Schnitzler's new record, and one from Brian Eno's new album. In beats, Robert Hood works his magic with a belter of a track under his Floorplan moniker, plus funky offerings from Randomer & Fife and Tribal Guarechero, hypnotic jangling techno in the form of a new Shackleton single, and Kassem Mosse remixing Braiden to devastating effect. In laidback beats, library sounds and hynogogatronica, Hype Williams have just released their second album of the past six months, so something off that, and Downliners Sekt have returned with a new EP, so something from that as well, not to mention a monster of a track from Anworth Kirk. This Bangs & Works compilation on Planet Mu has finally dropped, taking a snapshot of the Juke and Footwork scene in Chicago, and there's plenty ace tunes on that, so I couldn't resist slipping three tracks from that into the show.
In old African music this month, you can hear excellent tracks from recent compilations from the Honest Jons and Analog Africa labels. And in dub and reggae, classic tunes from The Upsetters, Reggie Stepper and Augustus Pablo ...
As if all of that weren't enough for your ears to feast upon, there are four mini-mixes in the show too. For starters I'm very proud to present an exclusive mix from Berlin's Extended Modulation, covering the best in neo/modern classical and experimental minimal electronica. That's well good, worth tuning in for that alone. Also in the mix department, I'll be taking a brief look at Demdike Stare's lush trilogy of albums they've released for Modern Love over the past eight months, with a track from each album; and, **COMPETITION TIME**, a chance to win a copy of the brilliant new witch house compilation 'Isvolt', with an accompanying three-track taster mix to let you know what's up for grabs. Tune in to find out how to win that, well worth it!
As for the final mix for the show, well it's five more tracks from those Alan Lomax compilations on Mississippi Records. If you heard my December show you'll have heard a load of tracks from this series already, but so many of you got in touch (thanks by the way!) saying how much you enjoyed those tracks, and I do too, I'm totally obsessed with these records, so I thought I'd stick a load more in for you all. Enjoy x

Pete Jackson - January 2011
Having missed the chance to get a programme ready last month, Pete has a lot of catching up to do to start 2011 - so expect tracks from albums by Stereolab, Mugstar, Shobaleader One and The Phantom Band, new tunes from Eclier, Manwel T and Conan Mockasin, some of the contents of the two fat envelopes received at the Broadcast One launch gig in November, and a fine selection of favourite session tracks from 2010. New Year - its not all about the future, you know!

Rocker - January 2011
The first show of 2011 from me is three hours long, and includes a featured LP from new US band Weekend, plus new tracks from Horowitz; The Loves; PJ Harvey; Youngfuck; The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart; La Sera; Three Hour Tour; Girls Names; and Brilliant Colors.
This month Anika takes on Twinkle, while Standard Fare and One Happy Island cover each other. Emperor Machine mixes Stereolab, while Stephan Bodzin and Marc Romboy prove that original is best where their classic track "Callisto" is concerned. There's also new electronica from Max Cooper remixed by Ryan Davis, while Operative and Circuit bring the dubstep.
The Distractions and The Electric Sugar Children both come up with their first new material for many years, while Guantanamo Baywatch come up with some shredding surf guitar music, as well as providing band name of the month. This month's Peel's Big 45 is a very early Ska 45, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a scorcher from Lenis Guess.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: "Terry" by Twinkle was a massive hit in 1964, despite, or possibly because of, being banned by the BBC - probably due to it being seen as a call to suicide, rather than the artist's name.
