THE CORDELS were Clint Boon’s ‘Record of the week’ last week on Xfm and will be in session this Sunday [23 August] on Pete Mitchell’s ‘Razor Cuts’ show between 6 and 8pm. Xfm’s Jon Hillcock’s influential ‘New Noise’ also played the single on his tastemaker show on Sunday and Steve Lamacq gave the single a play on his BBC Radio 1 show. Absolute Extreme added them to their cool playlist and support around the UK from specialist taste makers – it’s a great start for an unsigned band doing it for themselves.
THE VANGUARDS – Their Razor Cuts session on Xfm didn’t get aired last week due to studio technical problems but fortunately it will definitely go out this week [6pm-8pm, Sunday 23 August]. The Vanguards’ single ‘Regress’ has also been added to NME Radio’s ‘spot play’ playlist.
TEAM WATERPOLO – Last week the guys were Record of the week on Xfm Manchester’s breakfast show with Pete Mitchell, this week they are drive-times ROW with Clint Boon. On Saturday [15 August] the guys found themselves playing in front of thousands of people at Rock FM’s ‘Rock in the Park’ alongside Tinchy Stryder, VV Brown and Peter Andre no less!
MY ALBATROSS – This debut is released on 14 September and is already receiving a fantastic reaction from National and Regional specialist radio. They’re currently back at Sandhill Studio recording the follow up to Live and Live Lonely.
COSMO JARVIS – Watch out for this 19 year old, it’s early days but we think you’re going to hear an awful lot more about Cosmo. His next single ‘Jessica Alba’s number’ should see him getting a lot of attention.
SAVING AIMEE – Their next single ‘Fresh since 88’ is pencilled in for Sunday 12 October and their album for 19 October just before their support slot with Fightstar.
THE VALENTINES – Their single ‘You Make Me Me’ is confirmed for a 21 September release and already picking up some good plays. More news on the duo soon!
