Show 37 – Doggy Style ?

Listen here or by using the new Feedplayer in the sidebar, but I’d love you to subscribe instead !

OK – wipe that smirk off your face and stop being so dirty-minded ! The show title is a reference to the fact that I’m playing two tracks – with special permission – from a cracking Scottish band who are signed to a proper record label. Their debut 2004 album, Please Describe Yourself, was produced by the legendary Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, who have worked with Madness and The Smiths, amongst others. The style refers to the wonderfully classy and stylish Papermoon, who’re taking us on a little journey for which you’ll need to pack your lederhosen.

On a separate note, the Three From Leith Showcase gig pictures are now up (see the post below this one or click the link to go straight there).

Finally, if you’re into motorsport you may recognise the interloper getting in on the act and introducing a song on the excellent The Dogbox Podcast hosted by TFL’s good friend Bruce in Australia.

Dogs Die In Hot Cars – I Love You Cause I Have To
Brought to my attention in summer 2004 by my brother (who picked it up with his monthly pile of CDs by artists he likes the look of but doesn’t know – thanks, Keith !) and consequently never off my iRiver on my jaunts in the US and Mexico that September. Gloriousy unique, incredibly catchy and chock-full of 100% upbeat goodness. The band are recording their second album as I write and I for one can’t wait. Huge thanks to Craig from the band for the permission to play the songs.

Papermoon – Daytrip to Salzburg
Sparkly, bubbly and so damn addictive – the stylish and self-confessed ‘earplug band’ are making me think so much of summer that I get so upset when I look out the window and realise that it’s only just turned May and the weather doesn’t match the feelings I’m having. Ach well, I’ve ordered the album now so there’s a whole little shiny disc of delights winging its way here from Canada. Yippee !!

Dogs Die In Hot Cars – Godhopping

Hollow Horse – Prayer To St Jude
Busy recording their next album, the fantastically world-famous (via many podcasts) and popular Glasgow band get another outing on TFL. One of Scotland’s great undiscovered gems, with shades of Gerry Rafferty (which I may have mentioned before !), they’re a must-have for your CD collection. Get the plastic out and head over here and spend, spend, spend !!

    Hi Grant,

    Now that you have the new player on your website, how do I go about manually downloading the show? I can’t seem to find a link anywhere.
    I know that you would prefer people to subscribe etc. but I still like to do it the old fashion way so I get a chance to visit your website and check out anything new.

    Hi Grant

    I think you still need to put up a “download” link for when – like now – iTunes hasn’t yet registered the show.

    DDIHC – a bit Kaiser Chiefs, wouldn’t you say? And great to hear Hollow Horse are back in the studio. Good show, my man.
