Episode 298

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 298

Boa Morte

This episode featured an interview with Boa Morte's Cormac Gahan (second left above). The band have just released The Dial Waltz, their second album and Cormac came on the show to chat about the band's history, the long gestation period between their debut record and The Dial Waltz and working with producer Daniel Presley. Cormac played tracks by Joanna Newsom, Adrian Crowley, Bowerbirds and others. The interview will be podcasted next week.

Prolapse live at Abbey Park Festival

This show also featured two tracks from Prolapse's 1994 debut album Pointless Walks to Dismal Places. The band were from Leicester and featured co-vocalists Mick Derrick and Linda Steelyard. Mick really only shouted abuse at Linda in a Scottish accent. The band released four albums in total and even had a crossover chance when Donald Ross Skinner (Julian Cope's guitarist for years) produced their third album, The Italian Flag in 1997. Alas it was not to be. The Youtube clip above shows how great the band were live and the clip below is for Doorstop Rhythmic Bloc, a single off the first album.

This episode also featured three tracks from The Memory Band's 2006 album Apron Strings. The folk group's second album is a masterpiece and the below Youtube clip is another track off the album.
