Oi oi, this is the first of two, possibly three shows focusing on punk and hardcore in my home city of Southampton. Ten Songs #10 will be a retrospective show featuring classic tracks from local DIY bands from between 2000-2007. This show however features a set of some of the current hardcore bands who are playing shows and putting out records. I wanted to show that there are still plenty of bands locally worth checking out before we get into the history lesions. This town aint dead yet, you know? Yeah.

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. I hope that makes sense!
2. I either asked the bands (Paul Baribeau, Ginger Alford, Whole In The Head, Like Grenades, Defier, The Good Wife, Get Serious, Lemuria) or the record label who put out the record I was playing (Art Of The Underground, Green Noise) 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. As I understand it, you need to cut and paste this url into your podcast catcher – http://tensongspodcast.blip.tv/rss – or if you use itunes, hopefully you’ll be able to do the same thing if you CLICK HERE.
