Ed Ghost Tucker is a four-piece Pop/Rock group from San Diego, CA fronted by three singer-songwriters, Ryan Miller, Rutger Rosenborg, and Cameron and Michaela Wilson, all of whom have played music together since childhood.
The band’s musical stylings span a range of genres from doo-wop to new wave, and art-rock to world-pop. Their debut EP is out now and they’ve put out a well produced video directed by Roman Arriola for the exceptional single Sofia, a great introduction to the band. The DP on this was Frederick Duarte.Sofia HypeMachine
The band’s independently-released first single Everybody In The Nite was produced by Jagz Kooner (Primal Scream / Kasabian) and hit the Irish top fifty, meeting with much acclaim. 2014 saw an Irish tour, two further single releases with The New Age of Innocence and Uptight. Also, they’ve had some great success gigging with their international debut at Croatia’s INmusic Festival alongside The Arctic Monkeys & Basement Jaxx.
The Dead Heavy’s current and latest offering is the excellent high-energy track Liquidator which has a great video that we’ve included further below. You can show them some love at any of the social sites or alternatively at the video link below.Liquidator HypeMachine
If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you might notice that I don’t say anything right at the start of the show anymore. One of the biggest reasons for that has been a lack of new things to say. Coming up with quality intro lines that I haven’t used before eventually got to be difficult enough that I eventually decided it might be best to let the music carry the introduction. Good thing I’ve got a tune that can do just that this week.
You’ll also notice I didn’t say much about the next episode, which will be the 10th anniversary mix. It was that hectic around these parts this week. I still haven’t figured out what to do with that mix yet. Hopefully it will come to me soon…

Cold weather in April?? are you kidding!!?? Nope, it’s cold here, no sign of warming either!! Tigers slow down the wins, Redwings should have won, and a snake charmer kisses a snake and gets bitten.. imagine that…
So this year I went off to Record Store Day with the express intention of buying one record at the most. It’s not because of some fashionable stand against the concept, more just a lack of enthusiasm for the whole thing. So I bought one record, and spent more time in the Library reading books to Edinburgh Man Junior than I spent in any record shops. How times have changed.
Unfortunately, when I got home I remembered that the stylus (and cartridge – for these things aren’t separate) was broken. So I had to go back out into town and spend £80… Yes, £80(!) on a new cartridge. I have a feeling that £80 was how much the whole turntable cost me back in my student days when I purchased it via a classified advert in the back of the Edinburgh Herald and Post.
So in the end I spent as much money as normal. At least the record was a nice colour.

Chase The Ace are sleaze drippin’ and hard rockin’ . Bringing you a slick modern twist on the guitar wailing, drum crushing bands of the 80’s, Chase The Ace’s approach of “running as fast as you can with your eyes closed” is proving itself. In their short time of existence, the four-piece Rock band released a well praised debut album named ‘Are You Ready’, absolved 5 European tours through UK, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Holland, played more than 50 headline shows as well as several festivals, and keep on conquering the rock charts around the world. Chase the Ace pride themselves with innovative and eccentric stage performances, captivating the audience, whereby their influences such as AC/DC, Van Halen, MötleyCrüe aspire but nevertheless are presented in an original and modern sound.
“Takes an AC/DC blast and sleazes it up. A simple formula but you’ll be singing it for days on end.” – Fireworks Magazine 2015
“These guys rock fairly good on a par with many established acts. The fun vibe is supported by well penned songs and strong instrumentation, all crowned by a first rate production for an indie. A really enjoyable collection of rockers from a new promising band. Keep an eye put on them.” – 0DayRockz
“Pure Rocknroll!” – Ultimate GuitarTHE MANIC SHINE
Linking alt-rock and ambient sounds with towering riffs and pounding rhythms may sound tough for some but The Manic Shine take it all in their stride. Never a band to shy away from experimentation, 2014’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Let Go Or Be Dragged’ showcased a tour de force of rock musicianship and genre-bending, with songs lamenting the contradictions of modern life.
The last year has seen the band go from strength to strength, gaining support and spins on XFM’s The Rock Show to featuring in Kerrang! on Scuzz TV and many plays on BBC Introducing. The past 6 months have seen the band deep in writing and rehearsal for a new EP. Now with producer Lee Batiuk (Deaf Havana) on board and a new explosive offering planned for release in the fall and national tours to support, the London quartet are set for a busy and exciting 2015.
“Melting our ears…Alt Rock + Big Riffs = This lot. Absolutely Thumping!” – Kerrang!
The Manic Shine return with an album choked full of intelligent intricate riffs, relentless melodies and catchy hooks.”- Amazing Radio, Rock ShowTHE UNDIVIDED
One of the most exciting anthemic rock acts to emerge from South Wales in decades . They’ve supported Kids In Glass Houses, The Dirty Youth, IDivide, Ask and Xerts. Festivals so far Merthyr Rock, Camden Rocks, Nightmare Fest. The Undivided secured a sync placement for the instrumental version of ‘Headlights’ from the previous album ‘This New Day’ on the opening and closing credits of BBC 4 Royal Institute Christmas lectures, screen on 29th, 30th and 31st December 2014.
The band are heading over to Canadian Music week and receiving US and Canadian College radio airplay which has already awarded them a CMJ radio distinction. They have recently written and produced their new music with Dan Weller (Sikth).
“The Undivided have a knack for writing anthemic songs as big as the mountains that overshadow their hometown of Abergavenny” – Kerrang! Magazine
“Wingman guitarist Bray does a fine line in stadium trashing intros, and numbers like ‘Open Your Eyes’ and ‘Panic’ are immediately mesmerising. Singer Joe comes alive on these numbers too, as if he knows Bray’s scorching intros, a collision of U2, early Simple Minds, and SLF, are something to follow and indeed match.” – ArtRocker.tvNAKISHA ESNARD
A soulful singer, multi instrumentalist and Poet from Bedfordshire who creates a mixed genre of music on her current instrument of choice, a ukelele. It gives a great island sound for her style of reggae and her soulful voice resonates well with her chosen chords. Nakisha is the Inventor of Opera Reggae! Her ability to freestyle and interact with her audiences are a big part of why Nakisha’s shows are unique. She has toured extensively in the Uk for the past 2 years and recently supported Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry
“The UK continues to be a hotbed for original, fresh, creative and innovative musical talent. Vocalist, composer, writer, pianist and ukulele player Nakisha Esnard definitely ticks all of the aforementioned boxes.” – UK Vibe MagazineSAMSON
A London born singer/songwriter, currently in the process of writing and recording his own original material. Having recently graduated from the university of Leeds, you will find Samson making his way around London’s gigging circuit, while performing a combination of covers and original songs.
You’ll hear full live sets and interviews from all five of the performers from February’s Discovery 2 at the 229 Venue in Great Portland Street. The extraordinary Elle Exxe headlines with her brand of “dirty pop”. Fjokra returns to Discovery with his collage of genre-mashing music. Fragile Souls make their debut at Discovery bringing their mesmerizing blues rock. They are about to release a new single called “Devil Sun” and you’ll hear it live at Discovery first! Jordan Allen, another first timer at Discovery, has been described as, “Manchester’s answer to Jake Bug”. Opening the show is the fabulously entertaining American multi-instrumentalist Rachael Sage.
Our thanks to Claire Rozario for presenting the night both on the podcast and on the stage.
Further below, you’ll also find a catalogue of images from the event from Amanda Rose PhotographyMore about the artists ELLE EXXE
Elle Exxe (pronounced “L.X.”) describes herself as an explosion. After amassing well over 1mil YouTube hits, regular shout outs on one of the worlds biggest blogs PerezHilton.com and reaching the coveted top spots on the Hype Machine charts with her last single “Dirty Beat (Kat Krazy Remix)”, the artist formerly known as Harrison made the shock decision to set the counters back to zero and refresh as Elle Exxe. Starting from scratch may sound hard for some, but within a month of launching as Elle Exxe, she had shared a stage with acts like Professor Green, Jess Glynn and MNEK at Westfield London’s Music Cube (sponsored by Kiss FM & Sennheiser). She has new music ready for release in 2015 both self-produced and cowritten with the likes of Kevin Hastings (Rihanna, Lady GaGa), Jon Castelli(Jason Derulo, Gotye). Her style takes the best from hip-hop to rock but lands firm in the dirty pop arena.
“WHAT a voice!” – Ally McCrae (BBC R1)
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Linda Harrison – Alex Baker (Kerrang! radio)
“The most talented lady I have ever met…This is what I have been waiting for!” – Frankmusik (UK producer/artist)
“Fiona Apple meets Kate Bush….Gonna be a smash!” – Perez Hilton
Fjokra and his eponymous band have gained a reputation for exhibiting a uniquely bizarre and energetic live show that ‘combines near-minimalistic, lo-fi electro-pop with retro swing, metal and occasional epic Muse-like explosions’ (Time Out). Gracing the stages at Isle Of Wight Festival, Beach Break Festival, Shambala, Boomtown and Liverpool Sound City, Fjokra was also hand picked by Adam Ant as support for his London show in November 2014.
During the summer of 2014 Fjokra worked with director Catherine Hardwicke on her latest film Miss You Already starring Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine. Fjokra and his band feature in a concert scene performing one of his own compositions and also plays the part of Dominic Cooper’s best friend throughout the film. Miss You Already is scheduled for international release in 2015.
“I want to recommend something new to iTunes this week, a very exciting new band..Fjokra” – John Taylor, Duran Duran.
“Im going to have to go and lie down in a darkened room after playing that”. – Gary Crowley, BBC Radio London on playing Infinite Loops
“Sex music for metallers” – Peanut Baines, Kaiser Chiefs
“The ever impossible to pigeon-hole Fjokra with the musical masterpiece that is Slyrex.” – Peter Donaldson, Absolute Radio
Fragile Souls are ready to bring 21st century porch blues to a time where music is lacking something fresh, with one foot firmly planted in electronica and the other foot in chain gang blues an integral sound that has brought the two hues together as one genre. The Fragile Souls take pride in giving the listener a visual experience; their tracks evoke the primal gift of dance and the deep dream like trance of a movie soundtrack “Devil Sun” Fragile Souls’s next single launches on 3rd March. Alongside the releases will be be two alternative mixes thanks to their friends at Quote Records. This showcase is being used to platform the release.
“ unique with its unusual combination of components (which), through the beauty of music they produce a canny beat and work perfectly together.” Gigslutz review.
“Music when it hits you, it hits you hard – here is Fragile Souls Devils Sun” – Huey Morgan – BBC Radio 2
“Bolton songwriter Jordan Allen has been simultaneously blessed and cursed by the label “Manchester’s Answer to Jake Bugg” – but he’s so much better than that. This fierce, feisty debut single has a tough energy that owes far more to The Hives or Arctic Monkeys – and carries off the kind of swagger and attitude that young Jake can only dream of. Sharp lyrics, great attitude and a seemingly unstoppable momentum behind him – what’s not to like?” Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music Introducing.
“It would be easy, but lazy, to describe Jordan Allen as the half-way point between Alex Turner and Jake Bugg. That said, fans of Arctic Monkeys and Bugg will most likely find something in Allen’s songs of Northern accented dark nights and sharp lyrics that they approve of. Unsigned – but probably not for long!” – Fred Perry Subculture
“Intelligent, articulate lyrics laced with an ascerbic wit observing people and situations around them married to robust tunes that already show a rich diversity of sound.” – Even The Stars
New Yorker, Rachael Sage combines music with between-song banter, which The New York Times dubbed Sage’s “inner Fanny Brice”, and “Jewish Norah Jones”—even going so far as to call her a comedienne.
A soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer. Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia.
Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 reality series, “Dance Moms”
“One part Elton John, one part Kate Bush.” — Uncut
“Her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter” — billboard.com
“The band, centered on the songwriting partnership of Joren Heuvels and Bram Schabbink, also includes Tom Groeneveld on bass and Mette Veldhuis on drums.” [bio]
Their new EP As We Stand In Line will be released soon.
At least the USA half of the show (Justin) begins his tenure at Blunderbuss – a creative collective in Bozeman, Montana. The gang here has been so welcoming and has built us a small broadcast booth in the work area of the compound. It’s pretty sweet!

The song “Liberteens” was written after the group had listened to some Imogen Heap and were deciding on how best to incorporate Autotune into their music.
We’ve also embedded the great song and video below for the pretty recent release of “Blue” from the “Black Box EP” in July 2014. The video was shot by Ormdadet Film & Media in April 2014 outside The AstraStube in Hamburg the day after an Emerald Park gig.
