As Season II comes to a close, join us for a few festive musical nuggets

12/24/2020
Christmas Music on the show can mean only one thing, it's the end of another season of music celebration and review. We serve up another festive smorgasbord of musical crackers with all the trimmings. Join Tobin, Jamie and Richard to celebrate "Good Riddance" to an Annus Horribilis. It's been a year of unprecedented changes not only in the world of music, but in the world as a whole. Christmas Music with a difference from the 3 boys this week. It also marks the end of Season II of the show...

12/19/2020
Ryo Kawasaki is a jazz fusion guitarist, composer and band leader from Tokyo, Japan. Kawasaki is best known as one of the first musicians to develop and popularise the fusion genre. Secondly he helped to develop the guitar synthesizer in collaboration with Roland Corporation and Korg. His album Ryo Kawasaki & the Golden Dragon Live was one of the first all digital recordings.

Richard flouts our own rules and brings Nick Cave to the show

12/12/2020
Nick Cave, a strange choice for the show, and one that by merit should never be on here, such is his greatness. But actually, that is why he ends up here, it's a paradox, and we're pretty sure Nick would love a paradox. If you have the patience dear listener, then bear with Richard's monologue about his love and admiration for Nick Cave as he introduces one of Nick Cave's best performances. All recorded and released under extenuating circumstances. Alas, we have more than Nick Cave today as...

Heather Trost proves there is life after A Hawk & A Hacksaw

12/5/2020
Heather Trost, with her delightful new album Petrichor, is giving us two brilliant tracks this week as we showcase her talent. Quite coincidentally, it's a double edged sword victory for Heather Trost. We say that in so much that not only is the music quite sublime, but the artwork is to die for. Join us to explore her past as we explain about how speaking language transfers over to music so readily. Stick around for the closing track from Heather Trost. At nine minutes long and you may well...

Jennifer Propeller - you'll fall in love

11/28/2020
Jennifer Propeller, 3 tracks deep and a further EP in the wings. They are the self-styled dreamy end of indie-alternative melancholia. And they are a unanimous success here. It's the combination of dreamy guitars and Dalena's voice that really make Jennifer Propeller stand out. Luckily for us, we've also managed to have a sneak preview of some of their upcoming work. We can't share that with you, our listeners, just yet, so please be patient. However, the moment that JP are ready to allow...

Godcaster finally get their debut LP out of the traps

11/21/2020
Godcaster, cult-like psych-rockers and firm devotees of Judson Kolk, spill out their nightmarish vision onto the unsuspecting masses. Unsurprisingly pressed to red vinyl (what else) Godcaster's debut LP has landed. Or should that be surfaced? It's likely been spawned in the fires of an underworld populated with dog-girls, doppelgängers and pious iguanas. Spewed forth in a heinous incongruence of terrestrial vomit. If this all sounds a little far fetched then join in on Judson Kolk's cult...

New release French J-Pop inspired shoegaze from Tapeworms

11/14/2020
Tapeworms, bedroom shoegaze fused with J-pop and video games bring us a new release on Howlin' Banana Records. Straight out of France. After releasing a couple of home-recorded EPs to a modicum of critical acclaim, Tapeworms are back with debut LP. This new offering certainly extends their range of influences. We play their eponymously titled single on the show today. Typographical errors, mythical drugs and the mastermind behind some of Elvis' best known songs. That's Tobin's contribution...

Silverlode takes us out murdering, with our doctor's tools in our doctor's bag

11/7/2020
Silverlode, a folksome indie rock’n’ roll band from Leeds, Yorkshire, England. There is quite a lot to go at from Silverlode, and a great starting point would be their Bandcamp page. To be fair to their music, not all of it sounds like what we are playing here on the show today. Nonetheless, Silverlode make an excellent listen. Particularly the material they have managed to get recording during lockdown. It's worth noting that a new EP from Silverlode is in the wings - Ullswater. What you...

Savannah Pope - Freeway, her epic new single

10/31/2020
Savannah Pope - Freeway, it's her new single release and could it signal a new LP from her in the making. After Atlantis it would make sense. This single release is a further nod to her past, and a glimmer of hope that new work is coming. It follows fairly standard Savannah Pope conventions by now, there's the high octane guitars, booming percussion and of course the inter-stellar vocals of the rock goddess herself. However, it's slightly more introspective than her previous titles, almost...

Test Card Girl brings her forward looking Manchester sound to the show

10/24/2020
Test Card Girl was a teenager in the 90's in Manchester and what a time that was to be alive. She soaked up a lot of the sounds of the time and you can hear that in her eclectic and brave music. From subtle folk sounding acoustic noodling to some comedy Casio synth musings, all accompanied by Catherine's beautiful voice, it's a confident start to her musical career. Already on cassette and published widely on streaming platforms there is an exciting possibility that we may see Test Card Girl...

Web - Intimidation and Shame creep through the studio

10/17/2020
Web bring Intimidation and Shame to the studio this week, along with a truckload of division. Richard is a fan, Tobin is still trying to work out whether he is or not. Read on, and indeed listen on, for more about Web and their dark and oppressive masterpiece that is Intimidation and Shame. It actually transpires that this is in fact Part I, as Part II to Intimidation and Shame from Web is already now released. Along with Web, this week Tobin brings the quaintly title Tugboat Captain to the...

Jack Hubbel and The Roly Mo kick off Season II

10/10/2020
Hello there! Jack Hubbel makes a return to form and a return to the show with his latest Telyscopes release. Well, we say latest, it's not even released yet so you are getting an exclusive pre-release listen. No charge. It's what we do. Also, on a general note, it's great to be back. After a 12 week hiatus we are poised to deliver music that begs to be listened to. And, as a sage friend of the show said to us only today, "the best music ever produced you'll never hear". Sage indeed. So...

We also say a few "hellos" and "thank you's" to a host of musical glitterati. We'll be playing our favourite listener suggestion of Season I and once again...

Sammy Brue proves he's the original Crash Test Kid

7/4/2020
Sammy Brue has managed to pen another belter with Crash Test Kid and we've got a track on the show. Turn it up, it's no acoustic meander. The red/yellow splatter vinyl signed by the man himself is on the way to Record Box HQ. They're all gone now but you've still got time to grab the black vinyl release. Also coming from the US this week is Reigning Sounds' classic LP Home For Orphans. Again, we think you've missed the gorgeous blue vinyl release but you can still grab a black vinyl copy...

Dullards unload on us in true glam rock god style - unashamedly confident

6/27/2020
Dullards bring a healthy amount of self-written, self-produced glam power pop to Richard's final solo bookend of Season I. George and Roger deliver funny, toe-tapping vibes with their insightful and inspiring Dullards. We play the double A-side single today and discuss the wider merits of this fantastic musical collaboration. What a way to kick off the show as we rapidly approach the end of Season I of From the Bottom of the Record Box. And Dullards are a perfect example of why we champion...

We review the excellent new release from Booty and The Beard

Welcome to the show where we say "Hello" to Booty and The Beard and their latest release Strange Little Rocks. It's a cautionary tale of festival life. A tale of boy meets girl. Moreover a brilliant song, brilliantly crafted, from two brilliant musicians. Yeah, we think it's brilliant! And what's more, we want to share it with you, our listeners around the world. And it comes at a fitting moment as we rapidly approach the end of Season I of From the Bottom of the Record Box. With that said,...

The Midnight Pine convince us that Enough is Enough

Welcome to this week's show where Richard brings us The Midnight Pine and their keys heavy intro masterpiece Enough. Tobin thinks he's heard this before, alas, only a dream. We uncover some unlikely connections with other San Diego favourites Creature and the Woods. We play and listen to the sonorous vocal delivery of Shelbi Bennett. However, Enough of The Midnight Pine! Richard has the bookend this week and brings us the sadly now disbanded Broken Dog. Playing to Tobin's naturally critical...

Tobin has the bookend this week and brings back I Am Kloot with two excellent tracks. Sandwiched in amongst the show as well this week is "That Jamie" and his track of the month. Jamie describes the track as...

The Last Waltz, arguably the most iconic performance in the history of Rock 'n' Roll, recreated in all its glory by Mrs Henry. Forty one years later and Mrs Henry took to the stage at the Belly Up, Solana Beach, San Diego. Not alone, a plethora of friends were just about to join them. What happened next is likely an as epic and defining moment as the original. A task of immeasurable complexity, Mrs Henry pull it off with panache, soul and above all – passion.
