First up we welcome back to the show Jamie Derelict who fronts the band JD and the FDCs who we met last year backstage at Rock City.
The band have just released their debut album ‘Recognise’ and JD tells about how he spent the last year or more with his band creating what is a fantastic record.
He tells of the guests on the album and why he hand-picked them, and to top it all off it was mastered by the legend that is Howie Weinberg (he worked on classic albums by Nirvana, The Clash, Limp Bizkit, Pantera, iron Maiden, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and many more).
Check out JD and the FDCs here.
We also talk to a member of a new band who have never played a gig and have not yet released any music. Absolva have formed from the mighty Fury UK who are on hold as their bassist, Luke Appleton has joined metal legends Iced Earth. Luke’s brother Chris talks to us about why he has formed Absolva and what to expect from the band.
Absolva’s first show will be on Sunday 22nd July at the SOS Festival in Manchester and a short tour of the UK will follow plus an album is coming soon. Based on the fantastic music that Fury UK produced there is a big buzz about Absolva and we are delighted to be in at the beginning of what could turn out to be a massive project.
The final interview is with Sleaford/Lincoln band Nightvision. The boys kindly invited us to watch them rehearse at the Metheringham Music Factory which is about 10 miles south of Lincoln in a beautiful farmhouse setting.
Nightvision have been around for about 6 years in their present line-up and offer a hard hitting rock sound bordering on metal. Nightvision were kind enough to play a few of their songs for us in rehearsal and even aired a brand new song just for us.
We have included a short snippet of their interview plus a couple of songs from their latest album, introduced on air by the band themselves.
We managed to record some of their rehearsal and we will bring you some of the results in a later show plus the rest of the in-depth interview.
We also close the show with ‘The Making of the Nightvision Jingle’ which is a fly on the wall exposure of the torments a band goes through during the creative process. Imagine them trying to record an album…..
If anyone is in Lincoln on the Brayford Sunday 15th July Nightvision are playing a free set at the Lincs Evolution car show at 1.45pm together with 3 other bands. Come on down and see some great cars and great music too.
There is loads of great music in this week’s show.
The playlist can be found below…
