RALPH'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHART 

Published on 12.8.17 and as played on 

RALPH'S INDIE SHOW on RADIO KC - 13.8.17 from 5-7pm





No 1: 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 2: Fjokra

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. 









No 3: 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 4: 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 5: 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 6: 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.

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 8: 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 9Oranj Son

No automatic alt text available.Oranj Son are a four piece Psych Punk band from Ellesmere Port comprising Kieran Linford (guitar & vocals), Lew Yii (drums), Brad Welch-Harley (bass) and Matthew Linford (keys/synths).

10: Wozniak


Edinburgh shoegazers Wozniak head south for a handful of shows in the next few weeks, touring their debut album Courage Reels
