Edinburgh Man #198

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 03/10/2015 - 20:40

It’s happening. I’m getting addicted to coffee again. Look! I’ve got a full card of stamps from Artisan Roast so the next one is free! This is how they get you…

Earlier on this week the soundtrack to my morning coffee in Artisan was Django Reinhardt, and as a result I felt compelled to play some on the podcast. If you’re not aware of the “78rpm and Cylinder Music Collection” at I suggest you check it out. There’s a goldmine of the most incredible music from the first half of the 20th century. Apart from the crackles and somewhat lo-fi recording they still sound fresh to this day. I could get lost in there…

Sally Crosby: Comet

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 03/10/2015 - 12:00

Sally CrosbySally Crosby, a 22 year-old independent singer-songwriter from Powys, Wales has just released her debut EP ‘Bucket of Leaves’ in August of 2014. Today’s featured acoustic folk-pop influenced track ‘Comet’ is from the new release and is a beautiful track, honest and raw, a promise of great things to come.

Sally’s musical background started off at an early age, a violin and piano student since the age of 5, eventually picking up other instruments like clarinet, harp, and guitar. Later in life she studied music and creative writing at university around North Wales, graduating in 2013. It was here she played violin for North Wales based folk-rock band, The Rambling Pilgrims.

2014 was a big year for the developing talent, seeing her touring around the UK festival scene as an up and coming act and the release of the first EP. Last year also saw her playing the same festival with high profile British artists like Tom Odell, Frank Turner, Razorlight, and John Newman.

Blind Lake: Walk Beside Me

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/08/2015 - 12:00
Blind Lake Swedish duo Blind Lake have just released the single Walk beside me which is from their album On Earth out June 9, 2015.

Originally a 2003 sci-fi novel by Robert Charles Wilson, Blind Lake, the duo comprised of Lotta Wenglén (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, vocals) and Måns Wieslander (guitar, drums, bass, vocals) derived their band name from the book where in a small Minnesota locale, through alien technology, scientists are able to follow the everyday lives of aliens on a distant planet. The paranormal subject matter aptly reflects the Böste, Sweden based duo’s approach to art, music, philosophy and the perfectly normal events in life which remain perfectly unexplainable.

“Cheering, addictive” and “powerful” are the words used by founding editor of Mojo Magazine Paul Du Noyer to describe Thom Morecroft.

With tracks that have been featured on BBC6 Music by Tom Robinson (and winning three 2014 Liverpool Musicians’ Awards in 2014), this Shropshire-born 24-year-old enjoys a healthy live presence and reputation in the north-west.

Having recently released his new single ‘On All Night’, Thom, with his accompanying band The Rhythm Section, is currently putting together a new album for 2015.

VIDEO PREVIEW – Here’s the official video for Thom’s single On All Night – enjoy!


Deriving the name from a song by 2-tone ska band The Selecter, Three Minute Hero is a semi acoustic artist active on the live music scene. The brainchild of Liverpool songwriter, musician and award-winning promoter Stuart Todd, Three Minute Hero fuses raw social commentary with an eclectic mix of melodic material; elevating the classic three minute pop song by giving it a subversive lyrical twist.

AUDIO PREVIEW – Have a listen to Stuart’s performing Happy Hour At The Sunrise, an ever-popular live song.


Mark Pountney is a singer-songwriter from Liverpool who has honed his songwriting craft over the years, seamlessly blending the Mersey vernacular with American roots and rock music. His songbook boasts over one hundred and fifty titles. As a performer, Mark has captivated audiences across the globe with his strong presence, unique voice, powerful melodies and intriguing lyrics. He has steadily become stalwart of the underground Liverpool music scene, garnering the endorsement of music lovers and fellow musicians alike. During the 2000s he supported the local music scene; staging regular songwriter and showcase nights around Merseyside. In 2007 Mark was invited to the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis to record a couple of his original songs. Although only there a short time, he created a buzz amongst industry executives in Nashville, including the late, great, Cowboy Jack Clement. Since fronting the Mojave Collective (2001-2011), who released their album Rust & Dust in 2008, he adopted a hit and run approach to performing live; appearing in small but tasteful settings. Mark One is the first in, what promises to be, a series of albums exploring a range of musical territories. The album launch was a sell out event in House on Bold St Liverpool.Mark’s new album, Mark II, will be launched 30th May at Studio 2, Parr St, Liverpool and will be available to buy via all good digital music outlets (iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, Spotify and many more).

VIDEO PREVIEW – Watch Mark performing his original song Feels Like I’ve Come Home.


Alister Said. Born and raised in Bootle and has the scars to prove it! Got serious about original music at a later stage and formed his first band ‘Ohio Rain’ which after staff changes eventually split in 99. Alister was then contemplated leaving the idea of being a singer/songwriter behind, when a close friend suggested doing some recording at his house which ended up being called ‘The Rainy Day Session’  This recording was the push which cemented the idea and the very reason to continue. 2001 Las Vegas was the next stop, quickly forming alliance with major players on the scene the ‘Alister & Crew’ open mic series was born. Also forming a band which had a number of quality line-ups and playing the big venues on and off the strip, Alister had made a name for himself.

Returning to Liverpool 2005, Alister started formulating ‘The Tillerman Concept’ which is a unique marketing strategy for artists in the business of the self being the product. Together with the Tillerman team they made ‘Your Ticket’ happen, birthing a new method of business. Topping the creation with ‘Your Penny Tree’ a charity which would feed from ‘The Tillerman Concept’ and be governed by the people they where set to launch officially in 2008 but unfortunately, Alister became unwell and had to have surgery which sidelined everything. After numerous attempts to put another band together, TAP UK and Chief Seattle being two which where examples of the quality and depth of his writing.

Eventually Alister finally met with Frank and Carl who had just re-opened the Lomax where Alister had played back in 99. After spilling his beans with the pair, it was agreed that on the same page they where. It was almost a year after that meeting when Alister moved in to Lomax hosting ‘The Tillerman Radio Show’ every Friday. This was just getting real momentum when the radio station people pulled out putting the show on hold. Now, after all that has happened it would appear that those who reached out will now receive. Society The Clown is on the wind and The Tillerman Show is already known.

VIDEO PREVIEW – Recorded live at the Lomax, here’s Alister performing crowd favourite Mellow Meltdown for Culture City TV.

Edinburgh Man #197

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 20:37

Hmmm… The podcast is about to start in 5 minutes and it looks like Bandcamp’s website is down for maintenance. Not a problem for music but I sort of rely on it for the information about the bands and tracks I play on the show. In fact, I 100% rely on it and if it doesn’t come back then the chat is going to be pretty thin on the ground. I suppose it’s not as bad as the bands who rely on it for actually money – that’s probably a bit more annoying.

Anyway, this week I have been walking up and down Edinburgh’s canal. Look – there’s a photo of it the other day after it had been snowing. Isn’t it lovely. Sigh. If that’s the quality of the banter you’re in for a tough 30 minutes.
