AMPed Weekly Show - Mon, 05/11/2015 - 04:00
Hosted this week by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions with music from Broad Beans, Spitfire, Great White Buffalo, Mech Wendigo, The House of Jed and madelyniris [powerpress] [caption id="amped-show-491" align="alignright" width="150"]host-logo AMPed hosted this week by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions[/caption]
  1. The Farmer by Broad Beans Submited by Rodrigo de Sá of Cowboy Cantor

    The artist of the month of May at Cowboy Cantor, Broad Beans, is a quartet of young musicians, all under 25. They have been rocking the most important music venues in the Azores islands for a long time. Now finally the band that is from the same island as Rodrigo have released their first full album. The Farmer reveals not only the excellent musical talent of each of them, as also the fun moments you can spend listening or attending a concert by Broad Beans.

  2. Fuel To Burn by Spitfire Submited by Ro of DarkCompass

    Picture yourself a dark basement, a place between wild mountains and the fjords of the western coast of Norway, the combination of an ancient Norwegian attitude, 70s classic rock and metal. During the WW-II legendary fighter Supermarine Spitfire ruled the sky in these areas, and today Spitfire are delivigering the same supersonic and fire-spitting goods!

  3. Detroit by Great White Buffalo Submited by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions

    Indie rockers Great White Buffalo are determined to bring back emotional intelligence to rock and roll. With heartfelt lyrics and hard played instruments this quartet from LA is out to win your heart. "Detroit" is a prime example of their work and is off of their EP Fangs.

  4. The Bait and The Trap by Mech Wendigo Submited by Ro of Made In The UK Show

    Mech Wendigo is the side project of Paul Terry of Cellarscape. This is departure from his usual Indie Rock/Pop feel, and is part of a soundtrack to a short movie, which Paul writes and records for a livivng.

  5. O Caligula by The House of Jed Submited by Stuart Morrison of Insomnia Radio

    The House of Jed is the solo project of Admiral Twin drummer Jarrod Gollihare. He records his alterna-pop-rock ditties about pretty girls, comet strikes and the end of the world (you know…the usual pop drivel) at his home studio, mostly on cloudy days.

  6. Ghost by madelyniris Submited by Dave & Caroline of The Bugcast

    "I write imperfect music and hope it lives inside your heart."

    That's what Maddy Munsell says about her music.

    This track is taken from madelyniris' 2014 EP "Adventures" which is available from her Bandcamp page on a name-your-price basis.

Professor Kliq: Wire & Flashing Lights

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 05/10/2015 - 12:00

Professor KliqThe original track by Chicago’s own Professor Kliq, “Plastic & Flashing Lights”, has been around for ages. He felt it could use a bit of a face lift and even a name change, in light of Patator Productions’ video, created by Victor Haegelin.

Raised in the west suburbs of Chicago, Professor Kliq (Mike Else) underwent a lengthy and profound evolution both musically and mentally. With a variety of names, (Sharp Harpsichord, Quaziteque, Kid Kranium, Professor K), he explored any kind of electronic music he developed an affinity for. With influences ranging from different trip-hop DJ’s like Krush, Shadow and Cam to more experimental and noise-based artists like Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, he combines these modern elements with those he learned from music theory and his upbringing on jazz as well as 80’s pop and electronic music.

Music has always been in his blood: His grandfather, Sir John, a vibraphone and piano player that played with names like Gene Krupa and Tony Bennett, and his uncle, John Jeffrey, jobbing pianist and bass player, doctor of Computer Sciences at Elmhurst college.

Professor Kliq has been making music since 1996 with his first Casio keyboard and a tape recorder. Slowly but surely, training himself to play piano by ear and developing full pieces, the dream maintains an everlasting becoming into reality.” – jamendo.com

He graduated from Columbia College Chicago in early 2012 and now produces full time.

The vast emptiness of space, its cold, hollow expanse is the fact that we ignore while conjuring up tales of Death Stars and Restaurants.

ARTIST INFORMATION

 

PAUL WILKES
pourtousrecords.tumblr.com

Liverpool born singer songwriter Paul Wilkes releases his fourth EP River Running With Me on his new label Pourtous Records.

Paul spent his early twenties building up a grassroots following in the Liverpool area which led to tours supporting Joan Armatrading and Thea Gilmore, along with him being lauded by the likes of Word Magazine and Hotpress.

Paul decided he wanted to try something new and spent the last few years in an alt rock band Wilson Minds working in London with producer Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur, I Am Kloot) and musicians including Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller) and Jeff Wooten (Beady Eye, Damon Albarn).

The Wilson Minds experience provided him with plenty of high and lows, ‘almosts’ and false dawns, leaving Paul Wilkes to redefine his musical focus. Now he’s back with his brand new solo EP River Running With Me.

This release is self produced, written, arranged and composed by Paul working with some quality musicians that he has met on his travels over the years. The artwork for the EP is taken from his late cousin Warren Prentices’ collection of works which Paul intends to use as his theme for his next EP releases.

Along with this new material, he has a brand new five piece band. Paul will be gigging and growing his fan base, leading this release on to many more in the future.

Following its release in January 2015 the EP has had a positive response from the media including great reviews from Getintothis, Liverpool Sound and Vision, and Liverpool Acoustic. The leading track River Running With Me recently made Tom Robinson’s BBC6 Music ‘Fresh Faves’ and Paul has just been invited by BBC Radio Merseyside’s Spencer Leigh to join the Juke Box Jury panel on his On The Beat show on Saturday 28th March.

VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/EHP7dp05lWU - Here’s the official video for the title track from Paul Wilkes’ new EP River Running With Me.

 

JOHN CHATTERTON
johnrchatterton.co.uk

Born in Liverpool, John Chatterton is a self taught musician and artist with experience as lead and rhythm guitarist in various groups, including Widnes-based Celtic folk-rock band GogMAgoG. Latterly John has been performing as an accomplished solo guitarist whose regular sets include original works as well as improvised melanges based on and around well known rock, pop and folk covers.

VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/vUB6uFOdgjQ – Enjoy John Chatterton’s cover of Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water recorded at St Luke’s for the BoomPond Live Sessions.

 

ANNA & MIKI
annaandmiki.com

Anna & Miki are a Helskini-based acoustic duo that finds inspiration for their music from the uttermost places around the world.“Music comes from our hearts. It’s amazing that besides finding each other, we also found the mutual passion for music. We’ve been a duo for three years now, and it’s been wonderful. We’ve traveled together, played over 50 gigs here and there, recorded and released our debut album (‘Anna & Miki’, 2013) and several online singles and the journey just goes on!”VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/nptD0S6Efgs – Here’s Anna & Miki out on the street performing DayDreaming for Luomustudio.

ARTIST INFORMATION

 

THOM MORECROFT
thommorecroft.com

“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 youtu.be/1FXBEENZLCg – Here’s the official video for Thom’s single On All Night – enjoy!

THREE MINUTE HERO
threeminutehero.com

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 soundcloud.com/threeminutehero/happy-hour-at-the-sunrise – Have a listen to Stuart’s performing Happy Hour At The Sunrise, an ever-popular live song.

MARK POUNTNEY
markpountney.com

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 youtu.be/N2csc4n3qYg – Watch Mark performing his original song Feels Like I’ve Come Home.

ALISTER SAID
facebook.com/Alistersaid

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 youtu.be/SebucWSK_fc – Recorded live at the Lomax, here’s Alister performing crowd favourite Mellow Meltdown for Culture City TV.
