It is becoming increasingly difficult to tip-toe through the
Podsafe Music Network avoiding all the so-called "holiday" music.
Most of which, I have to say, is utterly dire. How many more times
do you want to hear a country/punk/metal/sugar laden sweet or
novelty version of Jingle Bells?
Happily the show is (and will remain) a mercifully sane oasis of
real music, so, if you find yourself getting just a little bit
oppressed by all the nonsense, you'll be very, very welcome in
here. You've got 95 shows to choose from and I promise not to throw
another log on the fire for you.
We've been getting into winter here in Suffolk in the last few
days. Last night's sunset (right) was a good indicator of the
frozen chicken drinkers this morning.
More rushing around this week with another two day in London - I'm
off again as soon as I've finished recording the show. Back on
Friday then to London again on Monday for another couple of days.
Another (cheaper) hotel but I bet we'll be in a basement again!
Sorry. Getting tetchy - not been to a live gig for weeks.
Happy - Jimmie Bratcher
Cool. Collected. Calm. -
Max Shelley (vocals/bass), Dan Probert (guitar) and Kev Abbott
(drums) make up the UK three-piece pop-punk band one:day:life.
It wasn't until I was doing the
shownotes that I realised that this band originates from within a
few miles of The Barn.

Bang - Kyoshi
Kyoshi: a band as comfortable getting you dancing as they are
getting you thinking. Classy indie-rock backbeats provide the
canvas for vocalist Leanne King's half-sang, half-rapped tales of
the modern world.

Closer - Dice
Coming of age in Eastern Long Island, New York, BEAU Taylor was
instilled both with homespun values and a punk-rock mentality. With
knuckles bruised and blistered from a Catholic school education,
Beau has always been the fiendishly debonair type. Drawn to music
since he could remember.

A few weeks ago, as I may have mentioned, I (and 25 other people)
stayed at a ridiculously expensive hotel in central London which
was paid for by the long suffering British tax-payer. The final
bill was, frankly, eye-watering, despite the fact that a couple of
weeks before, I had opted out of the promised "lovely big dinner
with lots of lovely wine". The sheer waste of money and the obvious
self-indulgence of the government agency that had booked it got we

be a win-win situation. Let me know how you feel about it. Could we
do something? I know it's a hell, of an ask but let's at least
start the conversation. Leave a comment here on the shownotes (just
