Finally summer seems to have ended with a few cold nights but yet
more great skies. Envy of Yvonne in New Zealand who I was talking
to this week and for whom spring is underway with months of
glorious summer to come.
A real mix in number 34 with artists from along a line from The
Netherlands to Vancouver. I think this is a show that warrants
close listening, there is some subtle and brilliant music in
Intro: Happy - Jimmie Bratcher
I was brave today - My Device

Oh my life - Sunshine Variety
Awkwardly named Sunshine Variety Club serve up large portions of
seriously epic guitar riffs, cool subtle electro synth sounds and
charming dis-interested 'Syd Barrett' vocals that all lie under a
backbeat of drums and dirty bass lines.
Neil F on vocals and playing with things, his writing partner Rob J
plays electric guitars and a bit of cockney vocals, Bloomers
fingers the bass and is in charge of special dance routines, the
little Irish wanker Kieron is normally a few sheets to the wind and
try's to play the electric guitar and Neil A hits drums with wooden
Already Loved by DJ's Steve Lamacq & Eddie Temple Morris.
Voice comment from Chris Downing of RhVibe
whose tune Backseat Suburban Dreaming
last week. Chris used the MyChingo button on the Suffolk 'n' Cool
website. It is there for you to use to have your say.
3 ships - Katbite
Katbite is a pop-rock band based in the Netherlands. It began when
Kat Leese emigrated to Holland in 2000. The songs are all written
by Kat, so the band has a strong singer-songwriter aspect, although
there are injections of many elements in the arrangements, from
jazz to punk, funk and rock.

"Currently we're still really busy editing the recordings of our
upcoming album. Finally we're making some progress. The first

design the artwork and we have to produce the discs off course.
Besides that, we don't have a title of this cd yet, so send your

Ordinary Heroes - Cats or Cars
Band: Daniel Beahm with an ever-changing cast of characters from
across these United States (and parts of Europe!)
Cats or Cars lives in Champaign, IL, but we are everywhere. Members
roam the globe performing in various capacities and performing all
sorts of media-based tasks.
Trapped in a parallel universe that keeps them constantly in flux
between Columbus, OH, Champaign, IL, and Los Angeles, CA, Cats or
Cars plays intelligent indie-pop grounded by Midwest roots and
infused with all things computer. The result is somewhat hard to
pin down and always eclectic.
Erika created a dance piece last year about ordinary people being
heroes in the every day. It was loosely inspired by people showing
their true colors, shining, after The Towers fell; it's about how
you can be a superhero without having to fly or see through walls.
It's a really cool idea and we love it. Dan co-composed the music
for the dance piece, and that composition evolved into a Cats or
Cars tune first called "Ordinary Heroes" and then changed to "Tall
Hoping to have the new album out this fall.
