Brightonsfinest Radio Schedule: Mon 18th - Thur 21st June

Mon

Interview with Belly
Led by Tanya Donelly, Belly were one of the great indie bands of the early 1990s - most famous of course for their 1992 mega-hit ‘Feed The Tree’. Despite only releasing two albums at the time, the hype and fond memories were sustained and to much delight and acclaim, they have just released their third album, Dove, and have sold out their show at Concorde 2 to look forward to.

Going Up With… Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
During and after their two sets at The Great Escape, a huge word-of-mouth acclaim built for Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - only following a pattern that has been present since last year’s The French Press EP, released on SubPop. Following our conversation with them at the time, it is a delight to once again have them back - this time in our funny little elevator.

Tue

Interview with The Wave Pictures
Nothing if not prolific, Brushes With Happiness will be the 17th studio album in just 15 years for The Wave Pictures. With a gig at Komedia as well, it is exciting times for fans of the trio from Wymeswold who have been compared to the likes of The Smiths in the past due to their witty lyrics and clever songwriting. We will be talking to Dave Tattersall to find out about the intriguing way they recorded their latest album.

Interview with Travis
Album anniversaries have a habit of sneaking up on you, and so it is with Travis and their iconic album The Man Who. Before their show at Brighton Dome, which celebrates this multi-million selling album in town, we will be chatting to their frontman Fran Healy to find out what the intervening years have brought and what is next for the guys.

 

Wed

Interview with Beth Rowley
In Brighton for a show at Latest Music Bar in support of her second album Gota Fría, Beth Rowley will be dropping by for a chat. This time round, she has worked with the likes of Ron Sexsmith and produced a piece of work deeply ingrained with rock, blues and rich Americana - a tantalising move for the singer with a stunning and unique voice.

Interview with Big Ups
In town for an exciting Green Door Store show, New York’s Big Ups are a punk band with a difference. Comprised of Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal, Carlos Salguero and Brendan Finn, the band played their first show on vocalist Joe’s roof due to not being able to get booked. How times have changed for the band who have often been compared to The Descendents, offering a tantalising balance of nihilism and defiance.

 

Thu

Interview with Immersion
Immersion are the husband and wife duo of Wire frontman Colin Newman and Minimal Compact co-founder Malka Spigel. Continuing their common themes of using simplicity of sound and the spaces within, their album Sleepless is a warm consolidation of krautrock and chill out. We are joined by Colin and Malka to discuss more.

BF Listener’s Chart
Back with four brand new tracks for you to cast your vote for, this week’s Brightonsfinest Listener’s Chart returns with offerings from Starcrawler, Orbital, Waxahatchee and Life. As ever, this chart is completely dictated by YOUR votes so don’t miss a chance to influence this!

Coming Soon

Orbital
While the world awaits Monsters Exist, the ninth studio album from Orbital (and their first in six years), the time is right for an exclusive conversation with the one and only Paul Hartnoll. With a very special show at Brighton Racecourse at the end of June, excitement is building for the kind of live extravaganza that only these brothers seem capable of putting on.

Earth, Wind & Fire
A band that barely need introducing. Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the biggest acts of the 1970s, regardless of genre or origin. As very special closing night headliners to this year’s Love Supreme, they are sure to bring that party to one hell of a crescendo with their array of huge, irresistible hits. We will be speaking to Verdine White beforehand, get ready for this!

Album of the Week


Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – Hope Downs
RBCF have really charmed us. Our interview on radio will be the second time we speak to the band in just a few weeks - but we couldn’t resist, now that their album Hope Downs is finally here. It’s definitely Album of the Week material.


Track of the Week


Johnny Marr - ‘Walk Into The Sea’
Legendary ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has returned, a respected act in his own right, with his third solo album Call The Comet. ‘Walk Into The Sea’ is another thrilling taster from the record, and hopefully a hint at what’s to come at his Brighton show in November.
