Problem Daughter: The Power is in My Name

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 12:00

Problem DaughterNon-profit DIY punk rock fanzine RAZORCAKE just last month released their first compilation under the ‘Tear a Cognita’ banner, a series of regional music compilations put together by active participants of the community they’re repping.

The first effort is from Salt Lake City, Utah. The fanzine describes the scene there as:

“a small and tightly-knit punk scene of diverse bands and personalities. Each band is starkly different than the next, creating a standard of well-attended and unpredictable shows. Within the past couple years their community has grown more supportive and inclusive than ever”

Tear a Cognita #1 was released on the 25th of March and we’ve chosen one of thirteen great tracks as a sample. Check out more from this band and grab the entire compilation below as a free download!

Edinburgh Man #201

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 19:14

Time for another exciting edition of the Edinburgh Man Podcast! And again, it’s not a live show. I’ve done something to the live server so that it won’t stream for more than 5 minutes. I will fix it at some point, but not tonight because, as always, I’ve left it all to the last minute.

Actually, I haven’t left everything to the last minute. I did a whole load of preparation for tonight’s show, including writing notes while I had my coffee this morning! Shocking. Will this professionalism be reflected in the quality of the show? Probably not.

Live Gig: Discovery 2 with Karl Phillips, The Bulletproof Bomb, Kolo, Amy Odell and Chris Preston

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 08:17

Chris Preston live at Discovery 2, January 2015 (photo credit Prexa Shrestha)

The first Discovery 2 live podcast of 2015 features rock, ska, rapper Karl Phillips, raucous, edgy, indie punk from The Bulletproof Bomb, rock/pop from fast rising London trio Kolo, alternative songstress Amy Odell, and 19-year-old singer/songwriter Chris Preston. You’ll hear full live sets and interviews from all five artists, presented by Claire Rozario.

You will also find a catalog of photos below taken by Prexa Shrestha.

More about the artists KARL PHILLIPS

The last few years has seen Karl support Chase & Status, Example, Wiley, Reverend & The Makers, Skepta, RDGLDGRN & Alabama 3 on tour. Air time on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music.

Headline gigs at O2 Academy’s and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly and squeezing in the odd gig in France. Karl even found time to gain support from the ‘Dont Flop’ Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the worlds first ever “guitar rap battle”.

Summers were spent in festival mode spreading the rock/rap/ska vibe as far as Latvia! Sharing stages with the likes of The Subways, Tinchy Stryder and Zane Lowe.


Their raucous edgy guitar driven sound has gained unprecedented attention including support by Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Gary Crowley BBC London, a headline slot on BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival. They have also played Leeds and Rob Da Banks stage at Bestival. Their debut EP was produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets).

“Definitely a band that music appreciators from around the rocking globe should most certainly listen and watch closely for. Ace band.” -Forkster Rocks


Kolo are a three piece pop rock band based in London. Originally from Devon; Jon, Steve and Dan’s epic pop rock anthems have been charming audiences up and down the UK since 2006.

Their much anticipated debut album was produced in Nashville by Chris Henderson from 3 Doors Down .’Castro’, the first track off the album, ‘Who Wants to Rule the World?’ Comes out on January 19th 2015.

“I produced this album and I am still listening to it… every day.” -Chris Henderson, 3 Doors Down.

“Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music.” -Vic Morgan, BBC


From the depths of East London a dark soulful storm is brewing in the form of alternative songstress Amy Odell. The gritty sound that emanates from her pipes has an element to it that no other brother can touch. Amy contributed a vocal guest appearance on legendary Irish musician Gavin Friday’s album ‘Catholic’ after Gavin chose her personally to feature on the song ‘Land On The Moon’. Don’t be fooled by the lack of noise this siren is making. It has been a long time coming, and bubbling under the ground ready for the explosion of 2015


Chris is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from the Southwest of England primarily influenced by acts such as City and Colour, Daughter and Local Natives. Debut songs ‘Hold on’ and ‘Bridges’ were viewed over a thousand times each in less than 24 hours after being uploaded and and were each reposted.

This week, we'll look at recovery and contemplate the possibilities inherent in second chances. Do they bring new focus and opportunity or squandered through indecision and inertia. It is a dilemma facing those who have faced traumatic situations and survived. Is survival enough? Helping us sort it all out are Aris H, Garmisch, Nic Bommarito, Jazzafari, Citizen Crane, and Ishdub. Thanks for waiting. I'm Jim Nye
