On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play the fluoro highlighted 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 outlier heroes with “songs for ewe” are:
Quatermass III
Marco Butcher (Uncle Butcher)
Justin Sullivan (Flat Worms)
Anne Garner
Tansy McNally (Blue Orchids)
Andy Warren (The Monochrome Set)

plus new tunes from Ty Segall, Osees, Rob Moss & Skin-Tight Skin, Dragon Welding and KEELEY…
