February and it’s still fucking cold, although at least the snows gone and I finally got paid. January’s a long month innit. Anyhow, this show features the second of our studio live sets. Rich Smith was kind enough to record a studio set from the Southampton hardcore band Defier for me that’ll appeal to anyone who likes modern hardcore bands like Have Heart and Blacklisted. You can hear the four tracks from that session for the first time ever on this show. Thanks to Rich and Defier for making this happen and keeping the ball rolling with what is going to be a regular part of the podcast. As well as this, I picked up the “Toronto’s Burning” compilation LP on Schizophrenic Records so this shows fairly heavy on the TOHC. Enjoy. – Phil Chokeword

Rich has a mobile studio (he doesn’t work for Planet Sounds), doesn’t charge much, does a great job and is an all-round good guy. You should totally drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re on the south coast and want to record.
14. Eddy Current Suppression Ring – It’s All Square (From the “S/T” CD on Goner Records)
1. This was put together on my family’s PC using Audacity and a USB record player, some over played CDs and 7″s and a cheap Internet microphone. Plus this MP3 is a lower bit rate than most in order to keep it at a manageable size. So if there’s a song on here that you dig and want to buy the record it came off, don’t be put off if it sounds kinda rough or scuzzy. I can guarantee it’ll sound better in the original format.
2. I asked the bands (On Point, Sauna Youth, Defier), the labels (Grave Mistake, Deranged, No Idea, Schizophrenic) or Cam at Southern Lovin’ (Eddy Current) if it was OK to podcast their songs and they were cool with it. I think one of the great things about the Internet is that it’s really easy to get in contact with people whose music you dig and I’d like to take time to thank them for allowing me to play their songs. Cheers!

I’ve uploaded the podcast to bliptv. I’m a little confused by RSS feeds and all that bumph, but I think that they sort all this for me. This means that it should be pretty easy to subscribe to the podcast.
