Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

It's been tricky to access all the shows in one place but at last, following some nudges from Clive (and a good few others), here's a wish come true.

This micro-site is the easiest place to listen to the entire SnC archive, all 429 shows.

Explore the back catalogue of shows using the Episodes button (top right). 

Full shownotes are published on the Suffolk 'n' Cool main site.

Happy - Jimmy Bratcher (Missouri, USA)
www.jimmiebratcher.com

PMN variability - last week loads, this week not a lot - but that's part of the fun of it. Surprised not more artists are making their music available for sale through the PMN. It"s a great non-exclusive deal. If you know otherwise, let me know.
Spring/summer was certainly here over the weekend.
Quite a playlist backlog, so loads of great music again this week, some that I've been meaning to play for ages. From the UK, New York, California, Germany, Denmark, Ohio and Moscow. Borders, who needs them?


Second Time Lucky - Figment (UK)  FIRST PLAY
FIGMENT, 3 guys, 3 instruments, 3 words - Rock and Roll.
A sound which is at once timeless and all their own.
No scenes, no clever genres, no gimmicks. Just honest music.
Perhaps that is their gimmick.
"When did 'Rock' become a dirty word?" they ask.

Recording the show fairly early this morning and half the birds of Suffolk are convinced that it"s an open mic session.

I wish I said - Jill Stevenson  (New York, USA)
When I heard this again last night when I was preping the show, I couldn't understand why I hadn't played it already. I would probably have said that it's a bit "soul" for my taste but I just love it. The music of Jill Stevenson reflects a depth of soul and poetic sense that reaches well beyond her years. It probably proves the argument that great music will always appeal across genres.
Jill was studying piano at age seven and her singing career began at the age of nine, with regular appearances in a small church that her parents helped to establish.

This modern love - Bloc Party (UK)
Bloc Party was raised on pop culture from 1976 to the present. They've been influenced by it all. Their second album A Weekend in the City narrowly missed out topping the UK charts this week (it entered at No. 2 behind Mika) also hit the charts at No. 2 in Japan, Australia and Ireland. The album charted top 5 in Germany and Belgium, top 10 in France, Canada, Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong, top 20 in Holland, Sweden, Norway and Austria and top 30 in Denmark and Italy.

The MySpace confusion seems to be settling down. Lots of useful contacts coming into the SNC Music Network area although they are mostly Suffolk-based. It's a global show so why not make use of the facility to promote your venue, show, label and indeed band at www.myspace.com/snc_network just send an add request and I'll sort it out.

C'mon add me - The Mysluts (California, USA)
We had such a love/hate relationship with Myspace that we started writing songs and made a whole band about it. Every band is on Myspace now, hell it's outdated to have your own website as a band anymore. Welcome to the next wave.
