Make sure you are listening to the Local Music show at 4 today to be in with a chance of winning tickets to Vinyl Jacket’s secret gig in Sunderland on the 17th of April.
We will be giving away 5 pairs to the first 5 people who text into the studio when we play their new single ‘Painting Stations’. Good Luck….this isn’t one your going to want to miss.
“The world may not have heard of them yet but, take it from me, Vinyl Jacket are a band at the very top of their game. One memorable radio record is all it needs and they’ll be all over the 6 Music playlist like a rash.”
Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

Home and Away is getting so depressing

not enough tea bags in the world

dribbling nose and snotty throat. LUSH!
About two weeks ago I received an email from Bob ‘God’ Allan down at Generator with a list of up and coming bands/artists in the North East that I should be looking out for. The list introduced me to a couple of pretty interesting newcomers, but non of which have hit me as hard as the fantastic Nadine Shah.
Its a pretty small world with this bird only living up the road from me, you would think my rather A-tuned ears would have picked up her distinctive sound from behind the waves of Whitburn’s coast. But no! Now that I have found a new talent that has me more excited than anything I have heard since working in Local Music, I can’t wait to hear more from this local lass.
A disarmingly disturbing alternative pop sound with lyrical and vocal flashes of brilliance, trust me this girl is special.Down at Spark FM we have added Nadines track ‘Aching Bones’ to the 6-6 playlist to be played out everyday on air. It’s worth your time to tune in and listen all seven days this week even if it’s just for this track. Either that or check Miss Shah out on her facebook and myspace pages were you can hear some more of her enthralling piano based gems.
I could go on, but all I will say is Polly Harvey watch your haunting, genius ass!
