TUESDAY TUNAGE. ‘Tired’ by Josh Chandler Morris. Every Tuesday I’ll be posting a Soundcloud track from an emerging artist we like. Our old mate Josh used to front the awesome ska-core band Anti-Vigilante and has re-invented himself as a troubadour of Americana inspired acoustic folk. He and his partner Carly Slade incorporate roots, folk, blues and soul into their compositions, delivering what R2 (Rock’n’Reel) Magazine describe as ‘exuberant songs performed with passion and intensity’.

MONDAY’S MUSIC. John Holt ‘Stick By Me’. RIP to veteran reggae star and lovers rock pioneer john holt who died in a London hospital, aged 69, yesterday. John is fondly immortalised in many great reggae tunes, including The Paragons hit ‘The Tide Is High’. But today we’re going with my personal favourite ‘Stick By Me’ from the Holt album. #mondaysmusic #johnholtRIP

Howdy!

Sorry about the radio silence, as Laila explains in this video, we’ve had a couple of quiet weeks Boom-wise. However, now we’re back in the studio mixing the record with Adam Noble Producer, who knows his compression from his EQ.

In order to beg your forgiveness, I’ve included a bumper listen of new track ‘L.O.V.E’. It’s the most Disco that Sonic Boom Six have ever dared to tread! This is going to whet your appetite for the album, no doubt about it.

Please remember to comment and share. Speak soon!

TUESDAY TUNAGE. ‘Getting Old’ by Perkie. Every Tuesday I’ll be posting a Soundcloud track from an emerging artist we like. Today it’s Perkie, who many of you guys may know from her background in the UK punk scene. On ‘Getting Old’, Perkie sets her stall somewhere between the honest songwriting and gentle, British vocals of Kate Nash, and the homebrew reggae goodness of Chris Murray. Her album, Time Machine, is available now! Please listen, like and SHARE! #tuesdaytunage

MONDAY’S MUSIC. ‘How You Remind Me’ by THE HELL.

The Hell’s recent cover of the Nickelback hit ‘How You Remind Me’ has divided opinion across the globe. We’re massive fans of The Hell for their fun, rocking live show and their use of satire to prick the bubble of violence and misogyny in a jockish hardcore scene that sometimes takes itself far too seriously. But we understand that others feel otherwise about the clown princes of beatdown. What do you reckon?

I was criticised, perhaps fairly, last week for sharing too much fun, frothy stuff on here and not enough hard-hitting political content. Well, be careful what you wish for, because here’s a blog I wrote in reaction to The Sun effectively pointing their finger at every Muslim in Britain and demanding ‘whose side are you on’? Please remember to comment and share and keep discussion respectful. http://barneyboom.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/the-sun-urges-brits-of-all-faiths-that.html

TUESDAY TUNAGE. Every Tuesday I’ll be posting a Soundcloud track from an emerging artist we like. Today it’s the contemporary ska-core of Smackjoint whose stonkingly produced track ‘More Dope, More Clarity’ kicks like a mule. If you dig the rap-rock crossover of stuff like T//alan and Random Hand, get on the end of this! What do you think?! Please listen, like and SHARE! #tuesdaytunage

MONDAY’S MUSIC. ‘The Impression That I Get’ by Mighty Mighty Bosstones. In 1997, this song took over the world with its fun ska beat and gargantuan chorus. Early in the Sonic Boom Six days Tim G from Big Tone Recording Studios did a mash-up of SB6 and The Bosstones that garnered some attention on the UK scene and was immortalised when Laila joined The Bosstones onstage at Reading 2011 to perform the remix. A real ‘full circle’ moment for SB6, as the albums ‘More Noise and Other Disturbances’ and, of course, ‘Let’s Face It’ were huge influences on us as teenagers. ‪#‎mondaysmusic‬

Could this be the last day of sunshine this year?! Well I hope you enjoy your day Boomers. If it’s not lovely and bright where you are, give this tune a spin and hopefully a little bit of sunshine will shine on you through the music. #sunnysideofthestreet
