shows // Animal Hospital Monthly Check-up
Follow Gabriel Kemp, Thomas Durham and God's own prototype, Jason Richardson on a quest to unearth the choicest cuts of mouth-watering techno, minimal and house.
Discover the artists and labels pushing the boundaries and decibels, not to mention our buttons. Get up to date with what's going on in sticky-floored bass chambers all around. Hear Jason battle the English language.
Walk away unscathed, hopefully.
[Animal Hospital, second Thursday each month at Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh]
...guys...how long have i been asleep?
Sometimes life inundates us with needless and petty distractions (work, education, responsibilities, rent) which steer our attention away from the things that are really important (quality internet radio programming).
After two cold and transmission-less months for the Checkup team we are back with a bang, broadcasting from our new favourite hangout, Gabriel's living room (If you prefer the intimate feel of headphones, that whirring in the background is the washing machine).
All the tracks which have tickled our fancy over the past few weeks, coaxed together in a rowdy huddle punctuated by our oft-questionable opinions and interjections, an overview of the coming month's club highlights and a cracking midway moment with Jase and Tommy.

lie down on the couch...
Ongoing transportation issues have restricted our movements so we're exploring the world of pirate radio for this month's show, transmitting from the international waters contained within Gabriel's living room.
This is our first foray into guerilla broadcasting, so please excuse any technical hitches or glitches. We shall do our best to tip the scales of your favour in our favour with our arguably aimful banter and a delightful selection of musical materials. (Feel free to get excited about the world premiere of "Animal Hospital Mastermind"...)
So close your eyes, drift away, there's a seat for you on the sofa.

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star.........Where are we? Oh wait, i think this is Glasgow.

Animal Hospital returns to Subcity after an extended summer washing seabirds on the beaches of New Zealand.
For our sophomore session, we thought we'd open up our format a little bit - rest assured, we're keeping all the good stuff. We'll be uprooting the finest musical produce to add to our two hour aural stew, generously seasoned with witticisms and throat singing.
Put all of your eggs into our basket.

Aloha radio world! contrary to the vicious rumour that we may have started, last month was not our final show, this is.
It's worked out well though as now we have time to showcase our good friend and music making machine Nick Dow. Nick is a resident at Animal Hospital. He breaks the mould in terms of a clubbing experience by lovingly hand crafting each set with only his own music, something which has really struck a chord with the Animal Hospital faithful and his closing set last month will be remembered for years to come.
We're stoked to have Nick in the studio today to play us out of what has been a wonderful year.
We promise this is the last show, we shall endeavour to return after the summer with bells on, all our bells.
Thanks again for listening to our wild ravings.
Animal Hospital xx
