Sound Resistance set list 7 Dec 2012

I host Sound Resistance the first Friday of each month.

Pretty cool show today me thinks reading from the A to Z of Mod by Paolo Hewitt and Mark Baxter as well as The Sound and The Fury, edited by Barney Hoskyns.

You can hear the show from the archives. Essentially the archive for Sound Resistance will only give you the music from 30 mins in which is pretty crap. Going via the general archive is better if you want the whole show. I'd love to give you the music via another source but I am bit hung up on copyright. Call me old fashioned if you like! :)

Here's the set list to really upset you all.

Power to the people - John Lennon
Gypsy Davy - Woody Guthrie
Police patrol - Bob Davenport
Another line - Laura Merriman

Euro 2012 starts with a bang!

Wow - what a great start to the Euro 2012 competition. Especially from a neutral perspective which is pretty much how I increasingly feel with each tournie. Two years on from the World Cup and my expectations for England to do well are pretty low. Today was the opening ceremony which I missed, come on please...Poland v Greece - day one 9am Vancouver Caffe Napoli on Commercial Drive. On 17 mins Poland took the lead with a great piece of play. A crossed ball from the right wing and a lunging header from Robert Lewandowski put them ahead. The referee definitely needed a visit to the opticians for two yellow cards to Sokratis Papastathopoulos which saw him sent for an early bath. Dimitris Salpingidis got a goal early in the second half to level the game and it had the feel of a draw but when Greece got a penalty kick the opportunity to take the lead and steal the game was there but Giorgos Karagounis spot kick was definitely telegraphed. Shame. I missed the second match but the drama will continue tomorrow at Caffe Napoli at 9am.
