Hello, Hello, Hello and welcome to choon on subcity radio.. your four-weekly global music mixtape.
Today’s show is a bit different as it’s the first in a scheduled series of guest mixes – I’ve decided to put together some shows where, instead of just the regular monthly chOOn!! mixtapes, you can hear mixes from some of the artists, bloggers, DJ’s, thinkers and bon viveurs, that influence moi and the very fabric of this show.
First up is local man and a HUGE influence on yours truly – Nigel Ross. Nigel is a veteran of the Glasgow music scene having fronted Scotland’s first Punk and Reggae sound-systems way back when – he gravitated into pirate radio in Glasgow before a move to England saw him helm legendary house parties in Manchester and Cambridge. Having just recently arrived back on Scottish shores I have enjoyed many an evening geeking out in his house which doesn't so much resemble a living space, as it does a vinyl nerd’s wet dream - a grotto of strange and beguiling records. His mind is a cave of musical wonders and I'm ball droppingly thrilled he's agreed to share some chOOns with us!
This is our first all vinyl mix and is a huge, unabashed rollercoaster of proto-punk, fourth world beat, ’60s psych and merry absurdity - These are weird and wonderful selections, that veer from hazy “easy listening� croons and unshackled joyous grooves to the downright sinister – a taste dichotomy that defies easy categorisation – bookended by some stone cold classics.
If you would like to know more about the music played today or just want to cyber caress Nigel’s luscious beard... then please do get in touch with him – kop a cyber feel by email via [email protected]
We will be back to normal service very shortly but in the meantime let us enjoy Nigel Ross’s “chust sublime� mix – chOOn!!11:00 - 13:00
