The Listening Club - 11th June 2017

Greetings folks,

Hope you're good. No need to comment much on the political turmoil that has hit the UK this week, sure you're all aware that things are currently more chaotic than ever in Blighty. Who knows how this is going to play out, but personally hoping that long-term damage is kept to a minimum before the tide finally turns... and that that tide turns sooner rather than later.

Last week @samsmitter came up with the fine idea of a #myfirstgigvortex, which, appealing to the majority like the absolute boy, is now slotted in for Sunday 25th June. The man @JimMcCauley will be running it, as I'll be away in a (hopefully not too soggy) field down near Pilton. So, what we need from you before then are audio mementos of your first concert experiences, whatever they may have been. Should be quite an eye-opener this one...

Also last week, @cakehugga was in the chair, boggling the faithful with some oddball Mancunian psych courtesy of The Sisters Of Transistors' "At The Ferranti Institute". Many thanks to her for the pick, and for sailing the frisb across to the ever-punning @akx, who's here with this week's intro...

"I'm still terrible at writing anything thoughtful for these blurbs, so I'll keep it short.

You might have heard the opening track somewhere, but the band has otherwise kinda flown under the radar (at least in these parts?), so you probably haven't heard the rest.

Fun fact: While trying to narrow down my shortlist of choices to, well, this one, I came across a Discogs review that describes some of the tracks as "circus on acid" and "freaky festival". So there's that.

#drinkingclub: sake or umeshu might be too obvious"
