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 margin walkers with “songs for ewe” are:
Steve Davis (The Utopia Strong)
Ger Eaton
Hilary Woods
Sean Newsham (Quickspace)
