Mika Vainio also brings us a genuinely terrifying sliver of noise from his new album 'Revitty' which sounds reminiscent of being torn limb-from-limb by a shoal of bloodthirsty sharks; Adam Bohman offers sage advice to the ill and lovelorn, and besides that we have plenty more psychedelic, electronic, home-made, DIY, perverse, collective karma for you to bug out to.

This extract of the late great John Peel talking about his work were recorded at a discussion on the future of radio at the big chill festial back in 2003. It was a chance for many Peel fans to hear his thoughts and experiences of working at radio one. It certainly seems even more prescient in current times.

I decided to podcast the interviews from the You Are Hear achive to share my experience of meeting him I am sure his many fans and those not so familiar will enjoy hearing his thoughts." Magz Hall Sept 13th 2006

August 2006: DIRTY FAN MALE PODCAST - Jonny Trunk and Wisbey's infamous Dirty Fan Male show recorded at the Big Chill festival.

Jonny Trunk's infamous festival of filth 'Dirty Fan Male' both delighted and appalled Big Chill-goers in equal measure: a musical stage show comprising some of the most bizarre, outrageous, deranged and inadvertantly surreal letters written to British top shelf lovelies by their most devoted fans. Described by The Guardian no less as 'delicious filth', the show is by turns hilarious, bewildering, scary and strangely touching. So listen in as Jonny Trunk and Wisbey invite you into the strange and sidesplittingly funny regions of the male psyche where you will meet the likes of Spunky Arthur and Lionel with his Big Rising Willie.

Many thanks to Jonny Trunk and Wisbey for allowing us to record this performance. If you enjoyed it, take a look at Jonny's TRUNK RECORDS website for lots of incredibly strange and wonderful records and plenty more smut.

as Jonny describes the show we "had people in fits of laughter which slowly developed into a desperate sense of madness, sadness and more. You will never experience anything quite like it. We haven't and we made it."


Broadcast on Resonance 104.4fm, this show brings together some highlights from 2006's Green Man festival, held in the dramatically beautiful surrounds of the Brecon Beacons in late August. For the last four years the festival has grown in size, bringing together a diverse selection of artists all influenced in some way by folk and roots music, from the percussive and hypnotic electronics of Steve Reid and Keiran Hebden to the sublime folk / blues explorations of folk-revival legends Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, with countless acoustic singer-songwriters. For this show, we have chosen to present highlights from the live sets of Nalle, Juana Molina and Tunng.
