It’s Ladies Night on The Rock Train Extra Carriage

Written by on 12th July 2013

This week The Extra Carriage welcomes aboard a host of lovely ladies. The only chaps allowed on the show this week are Mark and Kev and some assorted hairy guitarist blokes.

We wanted to show that the term ‘female fronted band’ is silly. If the band is good, it doesn’t matter who fronts it, male or female. We wanted to show the incredible variety of music out there at the moment.

Skarlett Riot

Skarlett Riot

Over the past few weeks we have been visited by some fantastic bands. On this week’s show we feature acoustic sessions from Lincolnshire’s very own Skarlett Riot fronted by Skarlett who before long will be sharing very big stages at very big festivals. Watch this space.

Jo from Dirty Habit

Jo from Dirty Habit

We are also featuring the raunchy Dirty Habit whose songs have a number of meanings by are delivered in mesmerising style by Jo. Their acoustic session showed how a good song sounds good even when played stripped back acoustic style. Jo grew up in the middle of Canada and dreamed of nothing else but playing rock music. She gave everything up to persue her dream and ended up in this country where she is striving to get a settled band line-up out on the road.

The third of our acoustic session is from Nya. Nya headlined the Thursday night at Download Festival last year and even a year later the buzz that gave them is clear to see.

We also play an acoustic track from another one of our guest bands, Incassum. They perform the haunting song ‘So Red’. This is a Death Metal band who have never played acoustically in public before. Since their visit to Siren they have started to play acoustic sets at Festivals so we like to think we have inspired them in some way.DSC_0667

Incassum talking

The rest of the show is made up from various artists and bands featuring female singers. There is a wide variety of music styles to be heard.

Special guests on the show are Charlotte Wessels from Delain plus Emily Overden from Pythia and Mediaeval Babes. They talk to us about their music and plans for the next 12 months.

So please tune in Friday 8pm or to the repeat at 9pm and listen for yourself as we bring you Ladies Night on The Rock Train Extra Carriage.
