Rathole Radio Roadshow 2012
Friday May 11th sees the return of the Rathole Roadshow for a 3rd successive year. The roadshow is a music event with a slight difference, a geeky interactive element. We’ll be connecting Rathole Radio fans around the world directly with artists and guests via message walls, chat rooms and even our fabulous audience-bot robot, built by Liverpool’s favourite boffin Mr Adrian McEwen. When triggered by fans online the bot will let off a burst of applause into the room and let them get involved, wherever they are.
In keeping with Rathole Radio itself the line up is eclectic but carefully selected, with an emphasis on local talent this time. We have:
The Corinthians – A Liverpool rap group who’ve christened their unique style “Scouse dub hop”. Blending elements of dub and reggae with the skills of some great MCs. They’ve supported Sugar Hill Gang, Ugly Duckling and the Jungle Brothers to name just a few, they know how to put on a show.
P’Chenga – Expanding on the reggae vibe these guys fuse ska and rock with energy and feeling. They also bring a live brass section to the party and their infectious grooves will get you moving your feet.
20lb Sounds – Making their third appearance at the roadshow are local rockers 20lb Sounds. No hint of bias in the fact that lead singer Dan Lynch also presents Rathole Radio *ahem*. On a serious note though these guys have been gigging around Liverpool a lot in the last year and building up a reputation for great melodies.
Thom Morecroft – Thom is a singer-songwriter who’s originally from Shrewsbury but now studies in Liverpool. The power and purity of his voice have to be heard to be believed and Dan is not the only one to notice it. Thom was recently featured at length on BBC Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene program and the future looks very bright.
