In Search of Captain Cat of Llareggub at 5pm – new work by Colin Black

October 21st, 2014 · No Comments

Inspired by the fictional blind character of Captain Tom Cat in Dylan Thomas’ classic Under Milk Wood, In Search of Captain Cat of Llareggub at 5pm is a new sound composition by Colin Black which unearths the captain’s secret soundworld, based both on actual location recordings and constructed dreamscapes. It is a soundworld full of the lyrical, sonic charm of Welsh fishing villages, nuanced from Captain Cat’s melancholic and nostalgic yearning for the past. In a sense we are travelling along sonic pathways into memories that dissolve into acoustic dreams; as in Thomas’ work, ‘the long drowned nuzzle up’ against our ear and tease the living, in this new auditory experience.

Wanted at 2pm – Felix Holt & The Radicals

October 21st, 2014 · No Comments

Felix Holt & The Radicals are four young London musicians who have studied the music of Americana’s roots, who merge a spirit of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and early Bob Dylan and fuse it with that of Southern Bluesmen of the Chess era. They have captured this music with all of the vitality of those who conceived and recorded it in the first place, some 50 to 60 years ago. Yet they are all in their twenties. They are Henry Scott-Irvine’s guest on Wanted at 2pm today. [Repeated Thursday 10am.]
