MuhMur Radio SoundArt Radio Broadcast 04:02:2016.

A strange thing happened on the way to the studio .. I was waiting for 18:43 to Totnes and all points south when I heard my name called out from the platform. I had bumped in to Simon Jarvis, my very old friend from 1980's Lincoln. I haven't seen Simon for a couple of years, and over the past five or six (great band) years keep meeting in some strange places across South Devon. Simon was on his way back to Modbury (via Ivybridge), for those reading this who know Simon - he is well and has left his laptop on a train heading for Scotland.
Tonights programme features new recordings by Manchester based group Primitive Knot. All 4 tracks can be found somewhere across the Internet on bandcamp, soundcloud and Facebook. Directions can be found at www.primitive Also included in the mix are three new pieces by Greater Manchester based project Salford Electronics. S.E. is operated by for Grey Wolves mastermind DAP. (Dave Padbury). As far as I know Salford Electronics haven't released anything "physical" as yet but there are download tracks available on the Internet.
With a nod to the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Cabaret Voltaire nightclub in Zurich I played some tracks by Cabaret Voltaire.

MuhMur Radio SoundArt Radio Four Hour Festive Feast : 03/01/2016.

Time for the third annual MuhMur Radio festive season special. The "Holiday Handbag" as it will now be known. This time I decided to fill the four hours with some favourite releases from 2015, tracks that didn't make it to the regular two hour Thursday night playlist through one reason or another.
One of my favourite listens of 2015 was The Conet Project 5xCD "Recordings Of Shortwave Numbers Stations" that was released in 1997, but I only got to hear it for the first time last year, and The Hare & The Moon "Crazy Man Michael" is from the 2014 tape release "The Grey Malkin" but again, I only got it through the post last year and has been a regular listen hear at Hartop Towers.
The track by Neil Campbell is from an album called "Blues For Sadneck" and is to be released in 2016. The Edward Sol track "Snake-Masked Brides" is an unmastered version of the track that will appear later in 2016 on an album called "Family Nails". The album is being mastered by Jason Lescalleet.

A big thank you to all the projects and artists that have provided "exclusive material" for  MuhMur Radio in 2015 and those who have sent material for playing / review. All appreciated.

MuhMur Radio SoundArt Broadcast : 10/12/2015.

This is the last programme of 2016, it is also a pre-recorded programme. Work commitments meant I couldn't make it to Dartington and the SoundArt Studio, so I gave a trio of recordings to Engineer Dave Mutch and he compiled the two hours.
Pre-Recorded means that I can play extended tracks, tracks that are 40+ minutes, tracks that don't have to be sat and watched (timer wise) just tracks where you can sit back and enjoy. Hence "Talking To A Dead Queen" by Leif Elggren - a beautiful 63 minute piece and a rare live recording of Tactile.

Back in the late 1990's myself and a chap called Mick McDaid decided to create a label to release limited run CDr's under the moniker of "The Mouth Label". I was a member of Dieter Müh and Mick ran Outsider Records so MoUtH seemed to fit. The history of the label is well documented in this blog and the project ended after only 3 releases. Tactile live at Stockholm Fylkingen was a projected release but the label ran out of steam. The other day whilst searching for some old Dieter Mūh tapes I found the Tactile "master".

01: Leif Elggren : "Talking To A Dead Queen" (Fylkingen Records) 1996.
02: R.Y.N. : "Creation Of Infinity" (Not On Label).
03: Tactile : "Live At Fylkingen, Stockholm. 17-01-1998" (Not On Label) 1998.

There will be a 4 hour MuhMur Radio Festive Holiday Special at the beginning of 2016, and live broadcasts resume on the 7th of January 2016. Please keep an ear and eye out on the MuhMur Radio Facebook page or twitter feed.

Notes From The "Popside" #7

After last seasons debacle of trying to watch Torquay United take on Lincoln City at Plainmoor, 2 attempts before third time lucky and then Lincoln City losing out to an obvious "off-side" goal, I did promise to never enter through the gates of Plainmoor again. Unless (of course) Lincoln City failed promotion and they meet in the 2015/16 season or Torquay United draw Nottigham Forest in the FA Cup. All this can be read about in "Notes From The Popside #6". (

Saturday November 21 was a gloriously sunny day on the English Riviera, and it hadn't rained since Thursday- there was no postponing this game due to a waterlogged pitch. Gloriously sunny and freezing cold. Torquay United have changed managers since I was last here, and a lot of the playing / coaching staff have left as well. Torquay United are a club in financial crisis and perhaps this is why it cost me £18 to get through the gates. Luckily children under 11 got in free.
It was good to see Lincoln City in their regular red & white stripe kit, taking me back to the days when I used to watch them "on the Bank" in the 1970's. I was never LTE, but I was there. They played some good football, they seemed to have a "game plan" which is more than could be said for Torquay United. Lincoln City seemed to play it on the floor, keep the ball moving whereas Torquay were quite happy to "Hoof n' Head" the ball. Unfortunately the Torquay keeper had a nightmare of a game. Dan Lavercombe. Nervous and slow, and whoever told Shepherd Murombedzi he could play football must've been drunk. He had the touch of the Sterling's about him. Ran with the ball, a few step overs to slow the pace and then either forget the ball, or forget what he was supposed to do with it. Terrible to see at this level.
Lincoln City were worthy winners. 3-1, with a brace from Luke Waterfall and a great shot from (my) Man Of The Match Liam Hearn. One thousand one hundred folk watched this, with one hundred and seventeen making the journey from Lincoln. Next time this game happens, I'm in the "away end".

I enjoyed myself so much I might go to Plainmoor again this season.
