The Signal Show 2008-02 February 3, 2008Posted by Stuart in Playlist.
The Signal Show 2008-02 is now online! Stuart Flanagan meets Blood Red Shoes, the duo from Brighton who have released a series of sizzling 7″s over the past 18 months. The band are now signed to Mercury and will release their debut album “Box Of Secrets” in April. Stuart caught up with Steven as the band started their current tour of Ireland and the UK, and chatted about the trials of the tourbus experience and keeping your voice after a night on the brew! Steven & Laura Mary pick some of their favourite recent tracks for the show, plus we hear the new single “You Bring Me Down”.
Also featured is new music from Hatcham Social, Adam Green and Black Mountain, plus album tracks from British Sea Power and the Maccabees.

Show 2 of 2008 is now up, and features some great new songs – I especially love the Hatcham Social single which is a perfect distillation of everything that was great about Glasgow’s Postcard label from the early 80s. Good to get some full on rock in the playlist too, with new-proggers Black Mountain and the towering QOTSA – can’t wait to see them play this week.
PJ Harvey’s White Chalk album was one of the most poetic and beautiful of last year so thanks to Laura Mary from Blood Red Shoes for nominating it for a play this time out. And finally drift away to the gorgeous SFA track that closes the show.
Tune in, listen, enjoy and feedback!
