Most played bands in September
Here's the bands that I listened to the most in September and what weird mix of bands I had on.
1 Reinhard Voigt – In aller Freundschaft
A bit of German techno always goes down well especially from the Kompact label
2 Бумбокс – Хвилюватися немає причин
More Ukrainian and strangely more reggae than the tune that made the play list last month.
3 Рубль – Я хуярю на гитаре
I didn't even realise I'd listened to these Russian punk rockers that much over the month, but it would appear that I had.
4 The Orwells - Mallrats
It sounds a bit like 60s US Garage meets 90s Subpop, they are American, but they are far too young for any of that.
5 Inspiral Carpets - Saturn 5
Were part of the Madchester scene, but looking back they sound quite different from the rest of the set, although a lot of bands around that time copied the Hammond organ sound.
6 ESG - Six Pack
Some funky girls from 80s New York, who seem to get lumped in with post-punk, probably because they were on Factory. Great stuff.
7 Arctic Monkeys - Teddy Picker
I really liked the first album, but then didn't listen to them much. Sean has now decided he likes them, so I've been listening to the other albums recently.
8 65daysofstatic - Weak4
My favourite post rock band. Mogwai are greater, but I prefer the rawer sounds of 65days.
9 Nathan Fake - The Curlew
IDM music from Norfolk's finest techno star.
10 Tijuana Panthers - Crew cut
A bit of contemporary stuff that sounds like the more underground surfer bands of the 60s.
11 Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine - Anytime Anyplace Anywhere
A band with a political conscience from a time when people just wanted to rave all night.
12 Times New Viking - Downtown Eastern Bloc
Just listen to them if you haven't before. They are pretty lo-fi, but no other label really works
13 Oregon Bike Trails - High School Lover
Some fairly inoffensive indie pop to finish off the play list with.
