Play show or right-click to download Show 19 - New Year coming, new songs to hear !

I knew things were looking up when I received an envelope addressed this way on Christmas Eve:

It makes me sound like one of those 70s DJs on Radio 1 !! It gave me such a laugh and the music was so good that it had to go in this week's show.

I was going to do a restrospective of all of the music I'd played since the show started in September; but then I remembered that I'm here to play you great new music, and I should be looking forward to the New Year and not back at the old year. If you want to treat yourself to a look back at what's been on Three From Leith in 2005, just go through the Archives which you'll find links to on the right-hand side. I'm marching on with fresh, exciting new bands who're giving me that little shiver of pleasure each time I hear them. This week's no exception, so load up the file and kick back with the music of:

Contramano - Checking U
Buy their excellent, full-length CD album 'Contramano' here
Email the band or visit their MySpace page to see and hear more about them.

funkspiel - Swing
Follow the link on their website to listen to more of their demos, or email the guys as they're really keen to hear what you think of what they're doing.
Alternatively, visit their MySpace page to hear more.

The Dead Beat Club - I Wish You Well
The band have two EPs which will soon be available via PayPal; you can sample them here and keep checking back to see when they're on sale.
Alternatively email the band to express your interest in buying their music and they should be able to sort you out in the meantime. And they have a MySpace page to visit too !

Once again, the soundbed music was supplied by the excellent torchomatic

Thanks to everyone for listening, subscribing, leaving comments, emailing me, feeding back to the artists and - most importantly of all - supporting the artists by buying their music. It's been my priviledge to play them since I started in September and I know that the bands are genuinely touched by everyone's support.

Keep up the good work in 2006 !

From me, Jasna and on behalf of all the artists you've heard and supported - Happy New Year !!

Great show Grant. I enjoyed the Argentines.

All the best to you and Jasna for 2006.


I listened again this morning (4 January, and this time really enjoyed Funkspiel and the Dead Beat Club. Grant: you're the Man!
