On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play the best 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 firebrands and firestarters include:

Neville Staple
Ajay Saggar (King Champion Sounds)
David Gedge (The Wedding Present/Cinerama)
Andy Warren (The Monochrome Set)
Bitch (Kill Rock Stars)

plus new tunes from the likes of Acid Mother Reynols, NONEXISTENT, Eileen Gogan feat Sean O’Hagan, Ty Segall and Pan*American…
