Kevin Robinson - November 2014
The stack of new releases this month include a raucous Stereolab cover from Toronto band Greys, polyrhythmic assaults from Cut Hands and Japanese producer Anchorsong, and a full-length of vicious rock'n'roll from California's Musk.
From the "Riots Not Diets" stable there's a new offering from The Ethical Debating Society, brand new reggae with a fresh Groundation album, plus tracks from recent releases by London's Ravioli Me Away, Austin's Spray Paint, and Thailand's Khun Narin Electric Phin Band. We also lift tracks from the sansa-influenced new collection from Cameroon's Francis Bebey, the riotous international ensemble Fumaça Preta and the tremendously fierce Senegalese singer Aby Ngana Diop.
Also this month there's sonically arresting new electronica from Objekt, Hieroglyphic Being on Planet Mu, Leicester duo Witch on Happa's new label, Woodstock's Photay, Black Dice's Eric Copeland on L.I.E.S., Mutsumi (the artist formally known as Mu), talented new Tri Angle signing Boothroyd, Tokyo's Ueno Masaaki, plusLakker produces something that sounds like "screaming into the wind on the top of a mountain".
If it's golden oldies you're looking for, there's a Peel session track from 1981 by Killing Joke, a re-issue from Girls At Our Best! and a track from a stunning new Sun Ra collection.
Don't forget to get those Festive 50 votes in!

Lee Adcock - November 2014
As you probably know, November is Festive 50 Campaigning month here at Dandy HQ - so my show will juggle between the megahits from earlier in the year and the fizzy pop on tap right now. Choose your flavor: we've got late night synth gambles with Siobhan, out-of-body noise illumination with Future Ape Tapes, gypsy ska caravan rolling with Hallouminati, bratty crunchy goodness from Crayon, and plenty more in the back if that don't suit ya. Festive 50 contenders from yestermonths include some top-tier prize contenders, like Kate Tempest and Ex-Easter Island Head, plus highlights from the international airwaves (we'll elaborate on the local front next month).
Oh, and Papernut Cambridge popped in for a delightful session. They're on their second album now, y'know.
And do hang in there to the end, if you can - one of the most awe-inspiring tracks I've heard all year caps off the show.

Mark Whitby - November 2014
It's about time we had a Hungarian band in session on the show and this month we put that right with exclusive recordings from Piresian Beach in a joint session with Pete Jackson, in whose show you can hear the rest of it. They're not the only featured artists from the European continent: we've also got fellow Hungarians Karaul, a cracking new single from Spain's Deers, Ukrainians Zapaska, Futuroscope from France and Germany's Deejay Deer.
Closer to home, at least to me, among other things we've got album tracks from Inspiral Carpets, Tyrannosaurus Dead and Thom Yorke plus a show debut for the excellent Jackn Bones. From across the pond, there's something from the new Deerhoof album, a stunning new track from Katie Gately and more from that incredible Shellac LP.
This month sees Festive Fifty voting upon us, of course, so, as is the custom, our Peel Back... feature recalls three tracks from the festive fifty of thirty years ago.

Pete Jackson - November 2014
A first this month as Pete shares a session with Mark Whitby - ace Hungarians Piresian Beach perform three tracks here, another three there. Lots of new stuff from acts new to the show too, including Chileans Nueva Costa, Portugal's Jibóia and Greek-sounding Americans Rhyton; the John Peel influence still prevails too with new releases from Peel faves Thurston Moore, Aphex Twin and The Cuban Boys as well as a classic 1990 session track.
Finally, there's three flexidiscs from a new Fruit De Mer box set - the 8-track revival can only be days away ...

Boyracer cover The Rosehips, while The Flatmates cover Prince. Sarandon cover the June Brides, while the A-side of the June Brides new single finally gets a play. There's a (rather long) track from Thurston Moore's new album, which features a My Bloody Valentine, and there's a somewhat shorter track from California-based oi - mod - punk supergroup Hard Left, featuring members of Boyracer, Black Tambourine, and Lunchbox.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is a classic on Drag City from 1990. while this month's Educating Elizabeth track is a new recording from an Old Northern Soul favourite.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Westward Ho! is the only settlement in the UK to include an exclamation mark in its name.

Sean Hocking - November 2014
Ring of Fire is back with something new and something old. Not so much happening in the AP region this month so we've had a wander over the planet and are especially pleased to hear so much great new music coming out of the UK that has nothing at all to do with 4 white boys all strutting around the stage doing yet another Kinks pastiche. I'm really enjoying listening to African Boy shop lifting from Lidl, The Fat White Family wishing they were Mark E Smith and The Council Tax Band having to waste their life in the job centre.
Maybe at long last the drudgery of Noel and his cohorts are over (actually I'm quite fond of Noel) but some of the flotsam that has trailed in his wake over the past decade has at times made me think that British music was losing it's inventiveness. Great to see it back! Oh yes, almost forgot and why is UK music so great? Yet again we have the Tories to thank so thank you Mr Cameron and we have of course included your rap as created by the one and only Cassette Boy the best thing he's done since the Parker Tapes. On the electronic and funkier side of things we've got some great mid-nineties acid from Richie Hawtin. I keep reading that acid is coming back. Here at Ring of Fire it never went away. We've also come across an amazing Pilooski edit that we hadn't heard before, Bissau, not really surprising as it came out a few years back but limited to only a 150 12"s.
Australia's had a fruitful year for new lo-fi indie music that appears to be informed by a Go-Betweens aesthetic. We are especially fond of Brisbane's Blank Realm and Melbourne's Dick Diver. Make sure you listen to the show as there's a little Dick Diver competition I'm running.
Elsewhere from Asia we've got a preview of the forthcoming re-issue for the first time on vinyl (originally on cassette only) of Drakkar 74. An album recorded just prior to the arrival of the Khmer Rouge and almost lost to history. Here at MP we've now spent 14 months finding the album, the band members and getting it re-mastered from the final remaining dodgy cassettes ... although the sound isn't perfect (it was recorded in 1972/73 in Cambodia!) it has a rather magical sound to it. We'll be releasing 500 only and that's it ... so if obscure Cambodian psych rock folk is your bag you'll be in heaven.
Last but not least two great cuts of artists that are rearing their heads after a long time hidden in the undergrowth. From 1989 a Keith Levene interpretation of Lennon's Cold Turkey and finally the amazing Lonnie Holley US underground artist whom I managed to catch over the summer. His psychedelic soul with more than a touch of Gil Scott Heron politics has me entranced. Hopefully he'll do the same for you too. Next month we roll on to xmas, so remember it's Festive 50 time and I'll be doing my own little selfish best of 2014. It's going to be a long xmas special from here considering the amount of great new tracks rolling into us daily at the moment.
