Oct 11th - live session from south-coast neo-shoegazers Air Formation (hope that description is ok phil?) plus a session from A Hawk And A Hacksaw recorded a few weeks back at 'sHRiMP/oof! hq - it had people dancing in the street then so don't miss it!

gLASSsHRiMP radio: Wed 20th September 2006

we are back on the air after our summer break - sharp listeners will have noticed that we were back last week with a Space Special to tie in with Resonance Space Week but the 'sHRiMP publicity machine that updates this blog wasn't up to speed - we had an amazing specially conceived session from They Came From Stars (I Saw Them), so special thanks to Horton, Dan and the 'Stars' - anyway, on with our normal feast this week...

broadcast live on Resonance 104.4 fm - 5 til 6.30pm (UK time) - Wednesday 20th September 2006 - fm in London, streaming from

live session from the wonderfully twisted Kent-based singer-songwriter Lupen Crook - indie folk with an unique and eccentric side - recent album 'Accident Occur While Sleeping' (Tap n Tin) - we will also talk to Lupen about his current and future activities.

we have Rupert Orton from the Spitz to talk about the remainder of the Spitz Festival of Folk and maybe upcoming events including much jazz-ness.

we also welcome artist Tai Shani in to talk about the happening she is curating this coming Sunday - walkwalkwalk: The Musical, a special walkwalkwalk event - a guided walk with live music from a host of artists en route - confused, Tai will explain.

in Da Hed's rather lightweight bag this week - new stuff from Bardo Pond (recent cdr release), Grails, Reigns (forthcoming on Jonson Family), The Hundred Dollar Band/Alastair Galbraith, Tara Jane O'Neil, OOIOO, EmbryoNNCK, Yo La Tengo, Part Chimp, Jack Rose and Radio Birdman and maybe something old from Fad Gadget, Suns of Arka and Alastair Galbraith - this won't be the half of it.
