AS PLAYED ON RADIO KC - 13.8.17









RALPH'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHART 

Published on 19.8.17 and as played on 

RALPH'S INDIE SHOW on RADIO KC - 20.8.17 from 5-7pm







No 1: Sacre Noir



Ralph's favourite video this week is Rebels and Loners by Edinburgh's Sacre Noir.

Having played tracks previously on Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show it's a bitter-sweet choice as Sacre Noir is in the process of winding up the musical journey and this will be the last video offering. However, Sacre Noir is going out in no small amount of style with this final offering.










No 2: Titors Insignia 



Image may contain: text
Ralph's favourite video this week is From Dusk Til Dawn by St Helens rockers Titors Insignia.

They are one of the hardest working bands in the North West and proper rock 'n' rollers who never fail to disappoint live.

No 3: RiD



RiD are a Coventry based band with links to Birmingham and Wales. 

In 2007, Dave Cooke (rhythm guitar and songwriter) and Ricky Hogan (vocals) formed the band as a response to frustration over the media’s obsession with the current dire X Factor pop culture. 











No 4: Fjokra

Image may contain: 1 person, standingFollowing critical acclaim for the Fjokra single Sick Kids, which saw Tom Robinson, Fresh On The Net’s Chris McBride and Duran Duran’s John Taylor all recognise the considerable talent emanating from this highly original progressive-pop fourpiece.

Fjokra now release Bang On TheDoor, a new single that again, showcases their multi-faceted talent and points of inspiration. The song came about when band main-man and multi-instrumentalist Fi (full name Fiachra Mac Oireachtai) was performing at Notting Hill Carnival. 















False Positives is the long awaited, chilling new single from Antonio Lulic, taken from his forthcoming EP Departures concerning the police killing of innocent Londoner Jean Charles de Menezes, in the aftermath of the 7/7 London bombings. 

The sincerity in Antonio Lulic's voice is palpable on the single and Ralph's already given False Positives a play on the Radio KC Indie Show. With or without the assistance of Mr Sheeran Antonio Lulic is destined to become a shining star.









No 6: Benbo




Multi-instrumentalist and cartoonist Benbo is set to release his new single Gravity Pulls Me Down 22nd September via PKLZD.

Tipped by Pigeons & Planes, Eddy Temple Morris and BBC Introducing, and co-signed by Cooking Vinyl, the former London resident has flown the capital to somewhere in the north of the UK that he will only describe as ‘The Bunker’, where he has amassed over four days worth of unreleased music over a vault of various hard drives.









No 7: Joel Thomas




Ralph's favourite this week is Sunshine Funshine by Joel Thomas. ralph played the track on Sunday's Indie Show on Radio KC.

Joel Thomas is a twenty-two year old singer songwriter from Liverpool and he is the latest signing to Edge Hill University's in-house, indie record label.










No 8: SONS

Zealot Artwok Bambi resize.jpg
Brighton's SONS release Zealot is arguably their biggest, most mainstream track to date.

First two Singles, Reptiles and A Love Song? have both done exceptionally well with everyone from Radio X to BBC Intro and of course Ralph on Radio KC heaping praise plus repeat spins on brothers Lee and Nick.
Zealot is hailed by SONS as "a song for the times, a scream to engage with the desire for change. A potent and powerful commercial blast that hits your heart and your head with SONS typical uncompromising venom."










No 9Broken Jaw

No automatic alt text available.

Based in Gloucestershire, England, Broken Jaw first came together in mid-2012 when members Nutzie Shelley and Lee Stockwell met at a friend’s house party.

Broken Jaw

No automatic alt text available.

Based in Gloucestershire, England, Broken Jaw first came together in mid-2012 when members Nutzie Shelley and Lee Stockwell met at a friend’s house party.
They quickly decided to combine talents and wrote the band’s first four tracks in their bassist’s work warehouse.
After gigging up and down the country for the last 4 years, headlining at many a well-known venue and supporting some established acts, Broken Jaw gained a big reputation for being a “rowdy party band” with the tag line’s “Too Punk to be Metal and too Metal to be Punk” and “Welcome to the #BJParty”.



Image may contain: 2 peopleThis has seen Broken Jaw accumulate a vast and ever growing loyal fan base; from fans of all types of genres, across the country and even overseas in Ireland, America, Germany and Norway.
The band (now in their 5th year) is currently recording their debut album Hope with a plan to release it later this year.
Constant Ignorance is accompanied by a hard-hitting video to raise awareness for - and help to stop domestic abuse.
Ralph will be spinning Constant Ignorance by Broken Jaw on this Sunday's Indie Show on Radio KC.
