this week, its revolution in latin america, featuring the zapatistas of mexico, some real life footage which i think matches the song, ( a grateful dead inspired number) which i have called guatemala, as i once stayed their for a couple of months. the links include, Gil Scott Heron and "the revolution will not be televised", and Mercedes Sosa, singing "gracias a la vida"

this weeks offering is a short video to go with my song "shoreline", filmed on the firth of forth, edinburgh, and features Granton harbour which is quite a feat of stonework. Links this week are a very emotional piece of animation called kiwi, it brought a tear to my eye so i thought i would include it. Also, a vid showing the talents of an urban pursuit known as freewalking.

mellow rootsie abinthe

this weeks its pretty mellow, "Sun is on its way" is perhaps influenced by the Palm wine music of the carribean, "hooded man" is banjo and mandola in an old time number, with the latin "Absinthe" to finish. Links wise we got Tommy Emmanuel on guitar, and a couple of crackers, with some awesome editing, happy new year

After the rapturous applause for the techno podcast, this weeks broadcast is strictly acoustic, and i manage to play some tracks by the local talent.
First up, (after a track by me entitled "Rosa doloraosa") is Ross Galloway from Fru$hane, with what i consider one of his best, the excellent "Hearts in my home", and to finish, the epic "Alive" from Chris Brown. Please forgive the inaccurate punctuation.

this week, confushian gets hold of some software, and mashes up some wicked beats with fruity loops, before pressing the delete button and getting the ukelele out to show the kids what real music sounds like, all sounds by confushian, (even the loud banging ones).
The photo is a reference to the white heat of technology, made famous by turntablist MC Harold Wilson who suprisingly moonlighted as British PM.
