Lee Adcock - August 2017
In prior years, I've often framed this month's synopsis in the whole "back-to-school" schtick appropriate for this time of year. However, with the advance of Athens Popfest and my first trip to Knoxville (for another gig, of course - go on, guess who) looming on my ledger this August, the old frame seemed inadequate. Indeed, any frame won't capture this exact frame of mind, which is - where? Maybe stuck somewhere in the middle of Dennis Callaci's sprawling tone poem, trying to discern the environs; or maybe on the sidelines of the dance floor, watching Moon King and Annie Hart work their magic. Or maybe I'm down in the trenches with Priests and Dasher, hiding from hostile forces. No, no, not that. Well, am I floating in the clouds with Frankie Rose or (Sandy) Alex G? Or, no, higher - could I be up in the stars with Le Fruit Vert and Cathode Ray Eyes? No, definitely not. This real state I'm in, I'd place it between the blunt force of Deafcult and the humble ramblings of CHUCK - that is, in an abstract killing spree, but way too self-conscious to feel any pride from the conquest.
(Also featured in this episode of "Lee's Existential Crisis": back room curios from Melvins and Graham Dunning, an 8-minute odyssey of percussion with the Secret Drum Band, and highlights from the homebase from Hand Sand Hands and Small Reactions.)

Mark Whitby - August 2017
We've got a truly special session in the show this month, featuring the always remarkable Cuban Boys, plus special guests they've roped in to re-work tracks from their recent album. The results are, I can confidently claim, truly unique and wonderful, even by their very high standards.
As it's August, I'm off to the Green Man festival later in the month so I'll be playing some of the anticipated highlights of this year's festival, including tracks from The Oh Sees, Hinds, Moddi and Madonnatron among others. There's also a Green Man-themed Peel Back..., plus an extra, extended Peel Back... to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of John Peel's final Perfumed Garden show, which aired in all its five-hour glory this month back in 1967. We also find time to cram in three tracks from this month's featured compilation - three glorious soul tunes from yet another wonderful album from the very reliable Soul Jazz.
And of course there's the usual bunch of new, recent and forthcoming releases, including a track from the new Baker Island album, something from what is sadly going to be the last album from Chuck, a truly extraordinary remix of a Diane Marie Kloba tune and something new - and, as you'd expect, very noisy - from Estonia's Threes And Will.

Pete Jackson - August 2017
There's a number of new tunes from very established artsists this month, expect to be astonished by the likes of Public Enemy, The Wedding Present, Cornershop, The Telescopes, Laibach and I, Ludicrous alongside slightly newer bucks such as Feorm, Violent Pacifists, Manwel T and Labasheeda among many others.
As usual there's a good geographical range, from South Carolina to Zambia, Germany to Mali, though Manchester may be slightly over-represented thanks to a great new compilation of independent music from the city's history.

Rocker - August 2017
Another three hour show packed with new music, including tracks from this month's featured album, "Night Of The Living Electrical Appliances", by Girl One & The Grease Guns.
There's also new tracks from The Stevenson Ranch Davidians; The Fall; Cinema Red & Blue; Lens Mozer; Equinox; Billy Bragg; JD Meatyard; Alvvays; Flemmings; Asbo Derek; The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy; Exedra; Star Tropics; Sunshine & The Rain; and Julian's little brother Joss Cope.
There's electronica from Martijn Ten Velden & Staves, C. Vogt & Patrick Jeremic, and Mount Kimbie. Burial comes up with a memorably chilling remix of Monic, while Four Tet takes on The XX. Boyracer cover The Undertones, while Cornershop have updated their mega hit to commemorate its 20th anniversary.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is from a 1978 classic that John Peel himself part-funded, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a current record from Sydney, Australia.
As well as little know acts, here's this month's little known fact: Cornershop's Brimful Of Asha references the queen of Bollywood's filmi singers, Asha Bhosle, whose name Asha also means 'hope' in Hindi. The song is a veiled critique of Indian filmi culture, where the masses find escapism in romantic films and songs, instead of becoming politically active and opposing government corruption as exemplified by huge expensive projects such as 'the dams they are building'.

Sean Hocking - August 2017
We start the show with a new demo from London's very noisy dreamherbs and something a bit quieter from Salary in Perth.
One of my favourite discoveries of the year so far is UK dub artist Roger Robinson. If you are a fan of Linton Kwesi Johnson, Augustus Pablo and dub that harks back to the music and politics approach of the late 70s this album is for you. I hope you like it as much as I do.
New music from bands with names like Biscuit Mouth, Polish Club, Kokoko! & Boat Show. We also feature new tunes from Liverpool's i-Discordian, Phnom Penh's The Cambodian Space Project and New York's $hit & $hine.
Also check out wonderful norther territory band Lonely Boys. They play rarely as none of them own instruments and can only practice when they actually all turn up in the same place and that location actually has all the equipment needed for a jam session. As they say, "Me properly black bushfella"
Thanks for listening. Hope you have time to check out all the shows on the the station this month.
