    'Why I Went to Mexico' w/ David Foote & Morphamish

    I got interviewed for a change . So I thought it might be a good way to start Season 4. I had spent the day recording the forthcoming Girobabies album and was a few hours away from going to Mexico when David Foote asked me if I would like to do an interview for the Davidicemal podcast in Sound Sound studios where we already were. So here it is. Morphamish co-hosted and produced as always. Check out their show here: https://bit.ly/thedds  . In today's episode we discuss why I was leaving for Mexico, the history of my bands The Girobabies and Jackal Trades plus how I got involved in festivals and podcasts. I haven't listened back but remember feeling happy , relaxed and slightly wasted. One of the songs we had recorded that day was 'Landfill Culture' which is out now on all platforms: http://linktr.ee/girobabies

    How do you finish a season of amazing guests? Well you release one of the biggest guests we have ever had all the way from New York. Gordon Raphael . The guy who produced The Strokes first two albums and has worked with the likes of The LI=ibertines, Ian Brown, 808 state, reggina spektor and the wildehearts.And to make it even more interesting this was recorded in front of a live studio audience at Blitkreig record shop in the barras. Thanks to Lucy at Wordvillle for inviting me to interview one of the biggest music producers of all time. He was a fascinating guy to speak to . I am delighted, and surprised to get the green light to release this one as it was under lock and key for a year or so but now we can finallly release it to the world.

    'An Independent Curveball' w/ Dutty Moonshine Big Band

    'An Independent Curveball' w/ Dutty Moonshine Big Band

    Probably one of the biggest independent bands in the UK right now and one of my personal festival favourites, we chat to the sound of Bristol,  Dutty Moonshine of Dutty Moonshine Big Band.  And at the time of this conversation the band were in the top 10 iTunes chart which is an incredible achievement for someone unsigned . They also tour Europe relentlessly and headline the big stages at the big festivals to tens of thousands of people on the regular. This is a fascinating insight to the behind the scenes mechanics of being able to make it happen without major backing. He shares tips, secrets and the hard work and reality behind it all. So even if you don't know the band you are gonna learn something today. He shows us behind the smoke and mirrors and gives a modern day account of touring, social media and how his band have been so successful. Like the last couple of episodes this was recorded a few months back now . I think October 2023 if memory serves me right, but everything is still relevant or even more relevant than it was then . Season 4 coming soon remember we have no sponsors, no funding and no adverts so if you want to support what we do then go to http://patreon.com/youcallthatradio check our what else YCTR does over here: http://linktr.ee/YCTR
