STA is now Ten Years Old

Public Service Blogcast Episode 41

This episode: stars of our recent Brixton Windmill BBQ show The Patio Set are four young men - Michael on guitar / Sean on bass and vocals / James on drums and Gareth on guitar and vocals - from Medway who "make loud music with funny rhythms and some loud music with normal rhythms and some quiet music that gets loud and then quiet again". They have been described as "a head-on collision between The Cure and Fugazi" and the must-read Devil Has The Best Tuna blog praised their song "Highgate Owl Nightmare" for "cramming an album's worth of ideas into nearly four minutes of wild and wonderful alt-rock". And here on the STA blogcast you can hear what all the hoo-haa is about from the band themselves as they present three of their own tracks along with other favourites and influences.
