Amateur night on Space Invader Radio

18th August brought us another fine Loosegroove radio show, #30, on Space Invader Radio.
This one had a difference. After a storming 1st half by Dr Q, we thought it charitable to give some airplay to some lesser known musicians, namely friends/colleagues/partners, who are having a go themselves.


Have a listen to the 2nd part of the show from The Van. Track list below - get in touch if you have your own songs you'd like to hear played - we may do another open mic night soon....

Prince - Lavaux
Paul Richardson - Relax & Mambo
Hardkandy Feat. Laura Vane - Hey Lover
Side Effect - Cafe Eu (General Dynamics Cafe Culture Remix)
Yasuko Agawa - L.A. Night (Jimmy The Twin Edit)
Gloria Gaynor - Real Good People
Romantic Manifesto - Damage
Galactic - Bounce Baby (Feat. Z-Trip)
Ben Stockwell - Guitar Jam
Luke Ritchie - End Of July
Aaron Dewey - Babydigger
The Good Ship - Bury Me
Bette Lavette - Joy
Paul Richardson - Maybe We Should Help People

Hear Loosegroove shows on the first and third Wednesdays of the month on spaceinvaderradio.com. (8-10pm GMT/BST)

Crystal Fighters to take over the world?

Crystal Fighters (not to be confused with Crystal Castles or Crystal Meth) announce the release of their debut album "Star of Love" due out at the end of September. Don't be put off by the title. They're not from around these parts. In fact they're a Spanish band that push out Basque bleeps and English vox. (Although, try not be put off by that either!)

To celebrate the album launch they're offering a free download from their website crystalfighters.com. (You'll need to pony up your email address to get your mits on the goodies.)

Here's the Follow/Swallow double a-side from the new album:



Alternatively, get a taster of their (and our) sound by listening to Boomslang's Robogirl! Zombies! AttacK! mix for Space Invader Radio which features a remix of the undeniably awesome 'Xtatic Truth':


Also, if you're in Bristol - they'll be playing at Start the Bus on the 29th of September. More tour dates available on their site.

Peace out, Boomslang.
