Happy - Jimmie Bratcher
Welcome to you, especially if you are a new listener - there seem
to be more of us having a good time together each week!
Been out for a fix of live music again this week, Thursday saw the
launch of a new venture, pretty much a collective of local
musicians who are promoting showcase nights. The first of the
Al Lindsey who played a fabulous set with the most spectacular
upright bass player whose name I completely failed to get, along
with sets from Debs Warren and Belinda Gillett who featured on the
show some months ago.
Progress with MySpace
In an attempt to keep the original Suffolk'n'Cool MySpace for bands
that have been played on the show, I've done the deed and created
two more MySpace areas, one, the SnC
( www.myspace.com/snc_lounge ) is especially
for err, listeners.
The other, the SnC Music Network
(www.myspace.com/snc_network) is a space where musicians and
listeners can find a growing body of promoters, venues, studios,
other podcasts, etc. I've linked to both from the MySpace page at
You've got to ... - The Young
The Young Punx are London based Hal Ritson and Cameron Saunders.
2007 will see The Young Punx release their debut album - a
crossover cocktail of elements of popular culture mashed with
pumping house, nuskool breaks, drum and bass, heavy rock and 80s
pop. The album will feature tracks such as 'Young And Beautiful'
and 'You've Got To' which is featured on the new FIFA '07 EA
computer game. Fatboy Slim liked this track so much he asked to
remix it for free.
Over the last 18 months The Young Punx have firmly established
themselves as the new darlings of UK dance music. With many of the
world's top DJs championing their records and over 100 BBC Radio 1
plays to date the duo are at the forefront of the UK Dance
The Young Punx are now firmly established as one of the most in
demand remixers in the UK. In the past 18 months they have remixed
artists such as De Lacey, Chicane and Tom Jones, Scissor Sisters,
Hound dogs, Dario G, Tina Turner, Space Cowboy and many more. They
have even incorporated the BBC Shipping Forecast - as was reported
today by Radio
The Young Punx play live both as DJs and as The Young Punx live
The full live band includes legendary guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan
(Guitarist Magazine guitarist of the year) and vocals from Tiffany
Gore (Medcab / Chicane / Kraak en Smaak) and recently performed for
2 nights at the Nano Mugen Festival in Japan to an audience of
Cafe Turc - Sara Alexander
Born in Israel of a Romanian, Jewish, gypsy father and a Turkish
Jewish mother, Sara never forgot about the problems in the part of
the world from which she has come, and does all she can to help
contribute to the understanding between the people, especially
between Israelis and Palestinians.
She has a fascinating website with the story of her work so far and
links to some amazing music and outstanding musicians.

The Jersey Shore's Alex Brumel is a 21-year-old singer/songwriter

Neo Latha Hatha Datha - RU36
Ru36 has been shaking up the Bay Area music scene for over 10
years. With their controversial subject matters and even newsworthy
chaotic live shows, RU36 is a force to be reckoned with. Give them
and listen and decide for yourself. In fact, if you listen
carefully enough you may just discover that this may not be
considered entirely family safe by people whose biggest concern in
life is naughty words!
What a life - Scott Brunger
(Maidstone, UK) FIRST PLAY
For once, everything came together by sheer luck. A semi-automated
MySpace friend-finder put in a request to SnC. I as about to
redirect it to the new SNC Music Network MySpace but this tune
started playing and I was blown away. A couple of quick messages
and a couple of calls to his cell/mobile ended up with the
requisite MP3 file arriving as I was recording the show. I hope
you'll see why it HAD to go in.
If you'd like a Suffolk'n'Cool Psst ...
CD to help introduce your
friends to podcasts (what they are, how to listen, subscription is
generally free, etc.) just send an email to me (including your
address). I've got a limited number to distribute - the idea is to
get them out and moving around from person to person, to spread the
word. You're very welcome to copy the disc and give it to
