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 weirdo rippers include “songs for ewe” by:

The Shend (The Cravats/Anzahlung)
Grey Hairs
Bob Nastanovich (Pavement)
Spike (Z Block Records)

Plus new songs from The Suncharms, Rob Moss & Skin-Tight Skin, Bent Arcana, Built To Spill & Bingo Harry…
