Have a Wicker Man Friday! (and Saturday)

Wicker Man is 40! (well in December it is) and they’ve found a copy of the 99 minute cut, and this Friday 27th is showing in cinemas across the country (and I suspect the world). I’m seeing it at The Curzon with Memory Tapes performing the soundtrack.

So to celebrate this, Radio Clash Live on Friday from 10am til Saturday will be broadcasting the Wicker Man podcasts, associated Scottish shows, various versions of the Wicker Man soundtrack by Paul Giovanni, WM covers and related original and modern acid/freak folk music, hauntology and spooktronica and the like (think Trader Horne, scottish folk, early John Martyn, Boards of Canada, Vashti Bunyan, Broadcast, Advisory Circle & Ghostbox, neofolk & Current 93, Psychic TV, Fleet Foxes, Low Anthem, Jane Weaver, Eccentronica Research Council, etc). Ian Fondue has been helping me with the selections, and I’ve been delving into the original massive pile of tracks for the two ‘Summerisle’ podcasts I did a few years back.

Haven’t totally worked out the schedules, but it will be pretty much the music and podcasts weaved in and out of some of normal schedule over 24 hours or so:

Friday (all times in British Summer Time):

  • 10:00-14:00: Music of Wicker Man
  • 14:00-18:00: Wicker Man & Scottish Podcasts
  • 18:00-20:30: Mix @ 6 as usual
  • 20:30-22:00: – Lloydbrary as usual, with occasional Wicker Man music
  • 22:00-24:00 – Wicker Man & Scottish Podcasts

Saturday:

  • 00:00-01:00: Notre Jam with Joel Crookes, with occasional Wicker Man music
  • 01:00-03:00: 50 Pound Note with Jeb Edwards, with occasional Wicker Man music
  • 03:00-06:00: Wicker Man & Scottish Podcasts
  • 06:00-10:00: Mix @ 6 as usual
  • 10:00-14:00: Music of Wicker Man
  • 14:00-18:00: Wicker Man & Scottish Podcasts

Might continue it further but I think over a day of freak folk & scary tunes is enough for everyone! Will also be a test of the new ‘override’ facility, which can override individual shows and slots with a new playlist *fingers crossed*


New playlist additions…

In between the mixes we rotate mashups, songs we love and various covers and originals.

New this week are:

  • Pom Deter – Call Me A Hole – featured in the inaugural RCL broadcast, it’s since gone over 1 million listens and is viral as fuck. And Pom is lovely and was already interested in doing stuff for RCL which he might do in between the helicopters and the whores and the cocaine…but we knew him well before the fame, his mashups have been featured on Radio Clash for years 😉
  • Midnight Beasts – Fuck the Harlem Shake – well it is SO tired, and went down a storm on the 1st live broadcast, so it’s a cert. It’s also a good song too…catchy!
  • Digital Debris – added the old shows from Tim’s Radio Clash – more experimental, but we’re all about that mashup of radio styles and music. There are rumours of new dd coming soon, if it arrives it’ll be part of the Radio Clash slot (9:30pm GMT weekdays, 8:30am Sundays)
  • Skee-lo and Clyde – DJ Y Alias JY – not new but new to us, played on the 1st broadcast also, it’s from the excellent Bootlegs.Fr Je Deteste Serge Gainsbourg mashup album.

We also have new mixes from Joel Crookes (Notre Jam – 11:30pm GMT weekdays/2am Sundays) and Solcofn (A Little Bit of Sol, 2am GMT/10am & 11pm Sat) who has done a special Radio Clash Live 2 and a half hour mix and Ian Fondue has reopened the Lloydbrary (4:445am/8:15pm GMT Weekdays) for number 14, 15 soon to follow.


Radio Clash Live inaugural broadcast finished!

Thanks everyone who dropped by – remember to tune in 24/7 – the schedule is here I hope my 2 hour mix of Kleptones aka Eric Kleptone, ben soundhog, Ian Lloyd/Fondue of the Lloydbrary, Julien DJ Frogg and Lee Prince 10000 Spoons (and a shout out and Fuck The Harlem Shake for Defunkto aka Shiggi). And PomDeter for his amazing NIN/Call Me Maybe mashup which also got played.

The US repeat of the show will happen for the US/late night people during the 2am-6am Radio Clash slot on Saturday morning GMT – which is something like 8pm-12am CST (before summertime kicks in and we all get really confused) – I’ll schedule it towards the end of the show for those on the west coast.
