Rad Releases ’12- The Eclectic Sessions

December 30, 2012

As the countdown to the end of the year approaches we take a personal look back on our familiar names, features and musicians’ top releases of the past 12 months.
This year has stood out for incredible releases and even more so for uncovering exceptional talent; most of which discovered, promoted and featured right on this site.

Continuing with the annual Rad Releases is our good friends Ross Williams and Andrew Williams (Poob) who make up The Eclectic Sessions. A weekly radio show illustrating the more bold and bizarre side of todays music. The majority of gigs we have covered this year we have also spent it with Ross whose great music taste led us together. In fact I can’t remember a show we were at where he wasn’t. A great year well spent. That being said we were also privileged to have been mentioned and involved in their enjoyable show. We will be uniting forces soon to create the ultimate eclectic session show. 

Top 5 releases-

Castrovalva – You’re Not In Hell, You’re In Purgatory My Friend (Ross)

Gallops – Yours sincerely, Dr.hardcore (Poob and Ross)

Chemistry lessons EP #1 (Poob and Ross)

If these trees could talk – Red forest (Poob)

Lightning Bolt- Oblivion Hunter– (Ross and Poob)

Gigs –

Turbowolf in The Fleece, Bristol, crazy gig with people hanging off the roof and invading the stage. 2000 Trees was a total mudbath mixed in with awesome music and madness, and the Chapman Family in Aberdare, mainly for the aftershow session, Pop and Owen are Legends! (Ross).

Mutator at cwmfest (Ross)

2000 trees and We are the physics, Elliots in Aberdare (Poob).

2013 plans –

Gig wise, Chapman Family/Gallops in Feb and probably 2000 trees again (Ross)

Download for Rammstein and 2000 trees again (Poob)

Show wise, try and develop the show and build the listening audience and also the circuit sweet take over. Oh yeah and another plan for 2013 is to listen to the next release from Aulos.

Thursdays 8-10pm on Dapper FM
