Sadly, like so many other artists, his life was blighted by addiction and he died tragically. Listen in and find out why they called him the Prince of Cool.

Hosted by Eddie. This episode of the Audio Archive features on of my favourite British Rock musicians, Ian Hunter. He fronted Mott the Hoople in the 1970s and since then has has had a long solo career. Never a celebrity, he optimises the working class roots of British Rock. Tune in and listen to some solid rock with a mighty heart.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. Killdozer was named after a short story by Theodore Sturgeon. They are one of my favourite bands of all time. Definitely not to everyone's taste but their combination of dark humour and grinding noise livened up the late 80's and into the 90's. With album titles like Uncompromising War On Art Under The Dictatorship Of The Proletariat you know that you are in for an 'experience.' Get ready for some unusual stuff, even by Audio Archive standards!

Hosted by Eddie. I've been going through my fathers collected blues CDs of late, listening to some compilations. So this show is made up of a mixture of classic blues songs and artists. Among the discs is an Amnesty International blues compilation compiled by Jools Holland and I feature classic artists such as John Lee Hooker, B.B. King and Elmore James. Tune in for the music that makes up the foundation of much of what we listen to now.

Included in these have been a number of old compilations from the 1970's. So this show has a mix of songs, you may recognise some, some will be o0bscure one-hit wonders. I'll name no names, so listen in and hear a sample of the music that shook up the nation 50 years ago!

Without them modern electronic music would be very different (and much poorer). In this show I feature tracks from early cabs albums; Voice of America, Red Mecca and Mix Up. I also showcase their live performances with tracks from Live at the YMCA and Hai! (live in Japan).

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. In this episode I play two great American singer-songwriters. Randy Newman and Warren Zevon are both extremely talented musicians that bring both dry wit and pointed satire into their work. I play songs that you will (probably) recognise as well as some of my favourites. This episode also features a 'Double Take' where I play two very different versions of the same song by very different artists. Which song and what bands? You'll have to listten to find out!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. In this show we showcase the zany talents of Spike Jones, creator of many novelty songs. He rose to fame during WWII with 'Der Fuehrer's Face' and went on to crave out a niche in musical history. The term 'murdering' refers to what he would do to both popular songs and beloved classical pieces. We play many old favourites: All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth), The William Tell Overture (Beedlebom) and the classic treatments of both Carmen and the Nutcracker Suite. Bring your sense of humour for this one!

Episode Information
Hosted by Matt, Glen and Eddie. In the third part of our dive into Pub Rock we play material from the immediate post-Pub Rock period. Of course, we touch base with Dr. Feelgood (live!) and the Pirates as well. But we also play some of Wilco Johnson's post-Feelgoods career, tip the hat to the Aussies (Saints, Angels) and look at what was to come (Barracudas, Tygers of Pan Tang). We still couldn't fit everything we wanted in, so it looks like part four will be coming soon! Stay tuned if you like your rock a bit grubby!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. I recently hosted a show of old-school 10-inch vinyls, mainly from the jazz age. This time I'm playing a selection of my more modern 10-inch discs. In the first half of the show I play an eclectic selection; The Pirates (Rockabilly), Fall (spiky indy-rock), Lemonheads (not-so spiky indy pop) and the Tempest (brit-pop). In the second part of the show I play a selection of rock covers (Led Zep, AC/DC) as played by 90's hardcore punk acts; Killdozer, Ritual Device, the Hard-ons (featuring Henry Rollins as a guest vocalist). Something a little bit different, you betcha!
