Neil Crud On TudnoFM – Show #119

By |August 6th, 2018|3 Comments

The Groceries is effectively everything else that Alan Holmes does that isn’t a collaboration, well, almost. His recorded output is, and has been so prolific over the past three decades that it’s very hard to collate it all into some sort of order. That’s exactly how he likes it. When you think of Alan’s projects past and present you can only be awestruck – Third Spain, Fflaps, Ectogram, Spectralate, Serpents, Normal Shed Uses, Boreas Gogledd just to name a few. Add his production credits to Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and Super Furry Animals, his record labels Central Slate and Turquoise Coal and you get half the picture.
So to finally pin him down in session was an honour and I knew we’d been blessed with something outside the norm…

Neil Crud On TudnoFM – Show #118

Well, what can I say… I was pre-warned about booking Salt The Snail (in a good way). Their live shows are a maelstrom of anarchy, slap-stick and a barrage of tunes. This live session was no different and I can honestly say I know no record of a band actually starting a song live on the radio only to stop it to take a phone call for a pizza delivery to the studio! Add also when the singer takes out the drummer with a flying kick during the last song and you might get half the picture!!
Anyway enjoy the session – I certainly did..!
