BBC Introducing Guernsey on BBC Radio 1

Of Empires at Vale Earth Fair 2014

Of Empires

On Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th March 2014 I had the chance to spread the word about Guernsey’s music scene on Huw Stephens’ BBC Introducing show on BBC Radio 1.

Across the three nights six acts were featured, three selected by me; Hartebeest (with Mura Masa), Robyn Sherwell and Of Empires, and three chosen by my special guests; Lifejacket, Rentoclean and Asylum Seekas. On top of that there were clips of tracks from Buffalo Huddleston, Byzanthian Neckbeard, Last of the Light Brigade and Static Alice.

You can hear the pieces at the links below on the BBC iPlayer for 30 days after their broadcast date and you can find out more about BBC Introducing Guernsey on Facebook by clicking here.
