  • WANTED: KC/Lawrence (& more) Music

    8 Ene 2013, 1:39 de thisisahiijack

    1. This is an ever-growing list of bands and albums I am searching for. Much like the 'haves' journal, not all of these artists are current residents of the area, but all of them have called the region home at one time or another.
    2. This list will never be completely up-to-date, as there are so many musicians that have come out of the area and have released albums with multiple bands. I've also chalked it up to a near-impossibility that I will ever get all of these, but I can try.
    3. I'm open for almost all types of music. If you have something you may not see here, don't let that keep you from speaking up about it. The only types of music I make a general rule not to track down are those who lean more towards a sound of rap rock/nu-metal (downthesun, 8 degrees, Canvas), bar band/classic rock/hair metal/general guitar wankery (Puddle of Mudd fits into the bar band category, the others I don't care to list examples for), or bad rap (Tech N9ne, countless others).

    1. This is a journal containing bands and albums I have recordings from on my computer. Though I try to support local music as best as I can by attending shows and buying albums, not all of this music I am in direct physical possession of through purchase.
    2. Not all of the bands below are directly from the KC/Lawrence area. Other cities and towns I keep in this collection are Topeka, KS, Columbia, MO, Wichita, KS, Warrensburg, MO, Manhattan, KS, and a few other, more rural areas of the region. Essentially, it contains everything east of and including Wichita in Kansas, and everything west of and including Columbia in Missouri.
    3. In addition to the previous point, you will notice that not all of the bands here are current residents of the region. Many bands (Mates of State, White Rabbits, etc.) unfortunately decided to move away to a larger metro area. Others (The Appleseed Cast, Namelessnumberheadman), were started in different regions and then relocated here at some point, usually early in their career. …

  • Dandelion Radio - October 2008 shows

    2 Oct 2008, 17:39 de DandelionRadio

    Voting has opened for the Festive50

    This month there are 23 hours, spread across 10 shows.

    Andrew Morrison:
    Andy's October show for Dandelion Radio features a live session from Alex Canasta, with four tracks recorded at their Copenhagen album launch party in August, along with a competition to win a copy of their debut album. As usual, there are two Tasty Tips from Teresa, and a Funky Five Minutes from Scott. The two hours of new and unsigned music include tunes from Lonely Ghosts, The Joy Formidable, Burial, and Decoration. Andy also marks the fourth anniversary of John Peel's death by playing one of John's favourite twelve-inch mixes. Listen in to find out what it is!

    Jeff Grainger:
    October's two hour Show follows the usual vague path previous shows have trodden; long, short, old, new and above all, getting hopelessly lost in the process. Accompanying our Album of the Month; F-A-R by Solanums and a brace of Northern Soul stompers. …
