His Master's Rabbit
Jan / Feb 06
Hove based foursome, Clearlake wandered up my Garden path to play a special semi-acoustic set the day after they finished their co-headling tour with Archie Bronson Outfit. Performing 4 songs, some from their 3rd album 'Amber' and also an exclusive cover version of a well known Elvis song.
As one of the original class of '76, Eater can justify their Punk credentials. Tonight the original core - singer Andy Blade and drummer Dee Generate - dropped by to perform a live acoustic set exclusively for The Garden. A mixture of Eater classics and reminances of a mis-spent youth, it no doubt brought a big lump to many a Punk throat. Just don't go gobbing it at me, thanks very much!
The music of Yasushi Miura has been amongst the finest Japanese electronica I have played out on the show in the past few years. It was my great pleasure to be able to bring you this exclusive mix by the man himself, which also featured a special collaboration with Luciano Frankini.
Mighty fine DJ and producer James Anthony aka Liquid Djems provided us with another Garden exclusive this evening. As the mainman behind Liquid Records he has produced and compiled several excellent downtempo psychedelica tracks, most recently on the 'Soul Vibrations' compilation, a unique fusion of organic electronica and deep pulsating psy dub 'n' breaks :: it all kicked off from 10pm ::
The Milton Keynes band dropped by for their second session  for The Garden and were armed with three new songs since their last visit. Lead singer and guitarist Steve Sciberras has previously appeared on the show in the guise of Jugband Boy but his current band are one of the best MK has to offer and you were able to hear why tonight.

4TrecK's recent album 'Je Me Promenade' was one of my favourites from 05 so it was a pleasure to bring you this exclusive session recorded in his home studio especially for the show. Sam Callow uses guitar, piano and drums, violin, accordion, melodica, tape-manipulation, Jews harp, voice, TV, percussion and a variety of odd sonic sources all mixed into an audio soup that is quite refreshing and unique.
A rather special and exclusive 3 track session from the Blossom Kitchen recording artist. His love of shortwave radio station transmissions and signals plucked from the ether brings a fresh and unpredictable edge to his own sound compositions. Turn on and tune in from 10pm

As a multi-talented musician, label boss and all round one man band, Dave Swain has been involved in the music industry even longer than me; well, just one year longer!  His label Gore Infidel was founded in 1991 and a mere 15 years later he finally releases his first album 'Istvan Zsolt's Plane Ticket'. You were able to hear tracks from it this evening and I think you'll have found it's was well worth the wait.
For his second Garden session, Christian Dergarbedian, perhaps better known as Earzumba, mixed a selection featuring some un-released music of his own alongside tracks from Frank Zappa, Archie Shepp and Andre Popp.     I enjoyed complementing his mix with fresh choices of my own which made for a rather eclectic two hour show.
