Live music in the studio today from Simon Stanley Ward and Protagonists of David Gadsdon, plus a live recording from Purling Hiss.
Simon Stanley Ward is a 24 year old English Country Music singer / songwriter from London, his newly released CD “Myself to Blame” is currently getting rave reviews on the UK’s thriving Americana grapevine.
Protagonists of David Gadsdon is a punchy, mock-bop recitative bunch. They play the spoken characters of David Gadsdon with drums, bass, sax, and detailed odds-and-ends. This is the first ever live performance of Doom Radio, releasing the babblistic world of Reginald Ffolkes, plus a bag of others.
Started as a solo project of the 4-track cassette recordings of Mike Polizze, Purling Hiss have quickly released a string of LPs and EPs on a series of labels, including Chicago’s Permanent Records. Polizze’s music is raw and unedited, the music is free of structure, Polizze values the idea over creating a polished product. Recruiting bassist Kiel Everett and drummer Mike Sneeringer, Purling Hiss is now a live force, and in today’s show we have a live recording of them from the last date on their European tour.
