On the Velvet Sheep radio show via Repeater Radio, 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 is episode 44 – my favourite beat (4-4), and the following off-beat off-piste (not piss) artistes choosing “songs for ewe” included:

Ted Milton (Blurt)
Marisa Anderson
Thalia Zedek (Come)
Jacknife Lee (Telefis)

Plus new songs from Bingo Harry, Blue Orchids, Ty Segall, Uhr, Pete Astor, David Westlake & MJ Hibbett
