After this post I promise I'll shut up about Chick Rap (for a few days at least)
So Wednesday was the return of Chick Rap on SPILL. We knew we had loads of crackers up our rolled up sleeves so requested a 2 hour episode. It. Was. Amazing. You can listen again anytime here.
In the meantime here's some of my favourites from the show.
Both mine and Sean's favourite song was by Kid Sister (pictured) and it is filthy as france.
Kid Sister - Right Hand Hi Love love love this track. Kid Sister is teaming up with Kelis for a track called "What You Working With" for Kelis' new record. Search Youtube and there is a 30 second clip. Cannot wait for that comeback.
As you may know if you listened to this week's show 'Chick Rap - Round II' was postponed as Seán had to work and since it's both of our favourite theme, there was no way I could do it without him. So I randomly threw a playlist together and if you missed the show you can listen again anytime right here. Also if you have an iPhone you can listen to the show and any other episodes on the go. Just download the podcast to yr phone.
Tune in on Wednesday to hear the long awaited 'Chick Rap - Round II'
To celebrate this week's theme on radio, Chick Rap - Round II, I thought I'd bring you one of my favourite grrrl fronted rap trios. They hail from NYC and have been at it since early 2002.
I first heard about them in my early teeny bopper days, when I used to stalk Le Tigre and crowdsurf at Bloodhound Gang gigs (real story) I found their first album Dying In Stereo in HMV and bought it without even listening to it? Weird. Turns out it was amazing. However after listening to it on my ghetto blaster a thousand times it got scratched and stopped working. Luckily someone in my class shared my NS love and burned me a copy.
2010 sees the return of old favourite Missy Elliott. Her seventh studio album 'Block Party' has been scheduled for release for an age and this year it finally drops. Featuring colabz with Lil Wayne and The Neptunes it sounds like it should have a few sweet tracks on it.
As I'm not really a fan of Lil Wayne, I personally don't like the track with him but the other track I've heard is 'Put It On Ya' featuring newbie Teyana Taylor. It has been produced by Pharell and is a belter. Ch-ch-check it out below.
So today was our first time back in the studio since before Christmas. Safe to say both Seán and I missed it so much! Don't worry if you missed the show as you can listen again anytime at our show page Also if you have an iPhone you can listen to SPILL on the go. Just download the podcast to yr phone.
We also did a photoshoot with the talented Ms Kirstin Kerr today. More photos at herFlickr
For those of you who don't know - M.E.N. is the newest project of the gender defying JD Samson of Le Tigre fame. Hailing from New York City they started out basically unknown in Europe, however after their latest track 'Make It Reverse' was picked up for the Kitstune Maison Volume 7 CD they are playing their first ever UK dates next week in Brighton then two dates in London. Which I totally want to go to.
Anyway I found a link to a free download for M.E.N's two newest tracks;
So..the human car crash, also known as Courtney Love, has stated that her 1990s grunge band Hole are reforming and shall be preforming this year. The band will be playing their first gig in 11 years on February 17th (one year to the day that I started SPILL) at London's o2 Shepards Bush.
Obviously being a Hole fan I was dying to go but websites gave out the wrong dates of ticket sales and I missed out on getting a ticket, which were only £20! The gig sold out in minutes and now tickets are on eBay for up to £200! Wtf? Hopefully she will announce another date later in the year. If she's still alive.
SPILL will return this Wednesday on http://www.subcity.org after a break for the festive period. I have been doing my homework over the holidays and we're gonna be bringing you what we think (know) is gonna be huge in 2010. Tune in from 2pm to hear our first show of the new year.
