The London Ear // Show 293 May 23 2020

It’s a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK. I will admit, I’m glad I have an extra day off from work.

So this week I started digitizing all my CDs and found a CD from 1994. I’m going to write a blog post about the whole process, which is turning into a bit of hassle.

Anyway, I found a CD by Swampshack, a band from my hometown, Kells in County Meath. Two of the band, Ollie Cole and Ian Melady, went on to form Turn. So I thought I’d play the title track from the Screamer EP.

I might turn that into a regular feature.

I also had a #FirstPlay of the new single ‘Headspace’ from Maddox Jones. Keep an eye out on the blog for a Q&A with Mr Jones in the next few days. You can find out more about him on Facebook and Twitter.

I think I will make this a regular feature also.

Hope you enjoy this week’s show. Stay safe!
