It’s all about the web this week, and on Wednesday 15th July, from 9pm, #TimsTwitterListeningParty sees Tim Burgess and Stuart David out of Looper (and maybe Peacock Johnson?) discuss 2000’s ‘The Geometrid’.
Also under the knife in Tim’s dissection lab, just an hour later: Teenage Fanclub’s 1995 album ‘Grand Prix’, which as well as being voted the favourite Scottish album of all time by is this music? readers in 2005, now gets the accolade of being the subject of #TimsTwitterListeningParty, on Wednesday at 10pm.
Oh, and we do like to put a kilt on Talking Heads, so on Saturday, July 18, featured album (and some would argue, their finest) – 1979’s ‘Fear Of Music’ – that’s from 8pm with hopefully an appearance from Dumbarton’s finest, David Byrne.
And also subject of a listening party, from 9pm on Sunday 19th, The Waterboys 1985 long-player ‘This Is The Sea’ – their ‘breakthrough’ release in that it’s The One With The Whle Of The Moon On It (plus it got to #37 in the UK charts).
And it’s not the TV, or the radio (what is?) but John McKeown out of The Yummy Fur has compiled 70-Youtube minutes of “scurrilous gossip and random interference featuring all the tragic losers of the mid 90s Glasgow pop scene”, plus music from the likes of Ganger, bis, Gilded Lil, El Hombre, Country Teasers, Trout…
Oh, largely unconnected, but you can also hear Mr McK on Clydebuilt Radio on a Sunday from 1pm.
