Weirdgear: Ship Full Of Bombs Radio Show

The delectable WEIRDGEAR (who had the honour of headlining the final ever No Fiction live show back in the summer,) have launched their latest long player COSMONAUTS DISCOTHÈQUE.

On Sunday just gone they hosted an excellent show on the internet’s finest radio station Ship Full Of Bombs. Part album play back, part interview: the show features an extensive look at the analogue synth-tastic record as well as recorded interview sections from various luminaries taking their respective turns to interrogate the band including yours truly.

The album is astonishingly good. Probably what they will use to soundtrack the remake of Drive in 30 years time. Invest!

Have a listen to the show on the podcast now and keep your ears peeled for a No Fiction poser in the first hour.

No Fiction Mix Tape 12 (Free Download)

Well in celebration of No Fiction being a thing for five years I’ve rattled off another mix.
This one is pure electro. A welcome pause from all the analogue synthesizer I’ve brought you over the summer. I’ve been a busy boy gathering lots of tracks to form this one, too many for the one mix so I expect I’ll be churning out another very shortly. Stream/download away to your heart’s content;

Here’s the track list;

Drone logicDaniel Avery
Teenage BassSh*t Robot
Bearded Lady Motorcycle ShowBot’Ox
Grand PrixBoddika

Five years ago today…

Well this blog is now five years old, which means it’s a little longer than that since the first ever No Fiction live show back at Power’s bar, Kilburn. (The above pic courtesy of that very same fated night.)

I think that deserves a new mix don’t you? Make sure you check back here next week for just that. It will be one of the No Fiction: No Techno series so expect progressive dance and much noise mongery.

Thanks for sticking with me for half a decade!
