On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play top tunes picked as part of the fanzine’s “song for ewe” feature where favourite artistes old and new choose an obscure-ish song they’ve enjoyed lately.

With no rules on genre or era, the songs range from psychobilly freakouts to psychedelic workouts, rare doo-wop to classic punk rock, pastoral to choral and extreme noise terror to elegant ambient soundscapes.

This week’s anti-heroes picking “songs for ewe” are:

Danny Ingram (The Untouchables/Dot Dash)
Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics/Jim Jones Revue)
Clark
Pete Astor

Plus new tunes from The Orchids, Yara Asmar, The Bobby Lees, Hekla, Pyrolator & Uhr…
