older The Saturday Shakedown episodes

Ben and Matt's Saturday Shakedown (Est.2002.) Live every Saturday 4-5pm (GMT).

Flat-cap hillbilly country bues-punk, rock and roll and swinging gospel from the muddy shores of the Mississippi Delta to the delicate banks of the Clyde Estuary

Like - Ty Segall, The Dirtbombs, Jerry Lee Lewis, Cordell Jackson, Billy Childish, Mavis Staples, Chuck Berry, Holly Golightly, Davila 666, The Felines, Gene Vincent, The 13th Floor Elevators, The Slits, Hank Williams, The Reigning Sound, Jay Reatard

"Rock and Roll is the voice of the young, the pulse of the kids who are with it, the kids who are no longer satisfied to look at the stars, but who are devising ways and means of reaching them... and to do that means trimming superfluous edges from every facet of life, including music."

The Saturday Shakedown // 09.05.15 // Tigermask's seven inches

9 May - the Shakedown returns refreshed, revived, rejuvenated for the sounds of the summer's underbelly right out of Tigermask's rock and roll record box. Primal and puerile punk rock. FOUR PM.

The Saturday Shakedown // 21.03.15 // St Steven's Day

After wallowing mired in self-pity for a week, here it is at last. Songs that are tenuously linked to Morrissey and some that, well, aren't really. Sorry it took so long to get it up on the site. I tried to find my Polecats CD, but I dunno where that's got to so no Boz specific action. It's a good show with only one mistake, you can trust me boys.
