No 1 .....  Feral Five



FERAL FIVE - 3D
Ralph  's been up to His ears Gunk in this week! No not the stuff for cleaning car engines ... 'Gunk' is a portmanteau of Geek Punk and it was Celebrated in style on the 5th-7th September at the    Music Tech Fest   in London ... and   Ralph  's chums   Feral Five   Were at the forefront with a live performance prior to the launch to celebrate the official release of   3D Print Me   single on 12 "Vinyl on September 17th in the   East London Design Store  .

3 ...    Steel Threads





Ralph    played the    Steel Threads    track    It Goes On    During this week's Indie Show on    Radio KC    and such was the interest in social media via the kennel His That I was moved to take a closer look.

Describing Themselves as 'An Original band playing acoustic unique blend of Their Own Rock and Folk' and with influences as diverse as    Led Zeppelin   ,    Crowded House    and    Fleetwood Mac   , they '' 'are multi-talented duo of Neil Wardleworth (drums / guitar / vocals ) Wilcockson and Laura (violin / vocals).





No 4 ....  One Eyed Wayne

Listening to North London band   One Eyed Wayne   is like having a flashback to putting on a   Blockheads   record (one of Those round, flat, black vinyl things) that's been re-mixed with a bit of   UK Subs   and no small amount of humor.  A case in point is Their latest release   After The Break   and Accompanying video. It's fast and furious social commentary at its televisually cynical, clever and best punk.





No 5 .....   Braver Than Fiction





Ralph's recently Been listening to a lot of 'proper' music for 'grown ups' and in this category comes the recently released EP  King Of Crows  by Sheffield band       Braver Than Fiction   . It's a collection of four live tracks off That September infused vocalist Mel's bluesy vocals against some snazzy      Steampacket   esque    Hammond    organ-ising.






6 .....   Wullae Wright


Displaying Superhero-finished.jpg
Ralph's with with previously blogged   Wullae Wright   and it's Proved to be The most well read of any over the last couple of years. Needless to say it was good news When   Wullae Wright   got in touch to say I was releasing 'Superhero' as a single. The story of the song is no less poignant than   Wullae Wright  's plaintive voice Which, overlaid on subtle acoustic guitar with an orchestral background is just as heart wrenching as the single's message. 






7 .....  TITORS INSIGNIA

No 8 .....    Fragile Creatures 



Fragile Creatures EP

Brighton Seems to be producing a wealth of musical goodness of late and    Fragile Creatures    are pushing Their Way to the forefront of That trend after an enforced hiatus due to tragic Circumstances. After a successful start to 2013, Including starting to record an album, David Vatchnadze, Their mentor and founder of Indie record label DNVMusic sadly passed away.






No 9 .....  Jingo


Black Flowers
With the majority of unsigned bands pushing Their music via the EP recently it's nice to see That a band has the confidence in songwriting Their Ability to produce a complete album of twelve tracks in order That the listener can get a handle on Their current music.

London based, four-piece alt rockers   Jingo   just that Have Done With the release today of   The Art Of Loving.   Comprised of husband and wife Jack and Katie Buckett along with friends Chris Smith and Joe Reeves they've compiled some delightfully mean and moody music That highlights Katie's crystal clear vocals.





No 10 .....  Villiers




Ralph s Been keeping an eye on Lancashire lads   Villiers   for a bit now and, With the imminent release of a Double A Side single (You're Not Alone / Nowhere Left To Run) as a follow up to the excellent 'Dancer', This Seemed as good a time as any to spread the good word musical. They're very much in the same mold as London electro boys   Thumpers   or   Resonate   from Sheffield, but with a bit of a mean and moodier edge as shown on 'Dancer'.
