“Discovering new music has been an unceasing passion for me. I’ve been buying records for 35 years now. Accumulating so much music sometimes seems indulgent so to have a chance to share with other people is always a pleasure. I’ve never really enjoyed the dynamic of playing out to a live audience and making mix tapes for friends can be a little sterile. But the idea of doing a radio show has always appealed so I’m grateful to Domino for the opportunity.
If you like your music heavy and a bit tripped out, and you can excuse my “amateur hour” delivery, then hopefully you’ll enjoy this selection of stoned rock and psych, some old, some new, spanning four continents.
Next time I’ll be playing only M.O.R. and power ballads”.
