Toadcast #313 - The Outofdatecast

 So many of the songs on this week’s podcast should really have been played at the very least six months ago that, honestly, it’s just a little bit embarrassing. Some of these came from emails which got utterly buried in my inbox, some from things that I kept intending to feature, only to realise that I […]

Toadcast #312 - The Resolvecast

 So, with the first podcast of the year I suppose I should be doing New Year’s Resolutions, right? I guess I do have some, sort of, for a change. Firstly, I didn’t exactly keep on top of the label admin well enough last year – particularly the accounts – so that really does need to […]

Toadcast #310 - The Tipcast

 Alright alright, so the name of this might have absolutely hee-haw relation to the actual content of the podcast. It’s just that I went to the tip today in Bette, as I usually do, and they spat the dummy and tried to charge me commercial rates to dispose of my rubbish and recycling because the […]

Toadcast #309 - The Edincast

 I can’t really believe I’ve not done an Edincast before. I mean, I live here, I work here, I run a label here and I go out to gigs here all the time. How has this not happened yet? I’ve done numerous Scottish ones, label ones, and even Manchester ones although I’m not really from […]

Toadcast #307 - The Joecast

 Yep, not gin anymore, these days I drink coffee with my podcasts. Nostalgia really isn’t what it used to be, is it. I remember when I was wild, rude, inebriated, etc. etc… Mind you, seeing as I am driving through to Glasgow once I finish this to engage in sensitive negotiations with a ‘hot new […]

Toadcast #306 - The Crumbscast

 This is called the Crumbscast for no better reasons than that I like the name and that it starts with a song called Crumbs, the new single by Jonnie Common. Given I’ve had to try and think up unique names for all of these bastard things anything which sounds good and has at least a […]

Toadcast #305 - The Indycast

 This podcast is not really all that referendumy, I thin… actually, I suppose it is kind of. I’m sorry to do this to you, but it’s more or less unavoidable at this stage because if you’re in Scotland it’s impossible to think of anything else. I started off trying to make it apolitical and just […]

Toadcast #304 - The Nearlycast

 So, here we are on August 28th and I have neeeeearly made it through another Pale Imitation Festival. Nearly. We still have tonight’s awesome show with eagleowl, Ian Humberstone and Smackvan, and then the closing party on Saturday with PAWS, Halfrican and Et Tu Brute! and then I will sleep for a week, and lock […]

Toadcast #303 - The Palercast

 So, a little over halfway through the Pale Imitation Festival, and here we are. There are still four gigs to go, with Rick Redbeard, LAW, eagleowl and PAWS headlining (tickets and full details here), and the gigs are only a fiver to get into, which in Edinburgh in August represents a monumental fucking bargain. We […]

Toadcast #302 - The Palecast

Well as you can probably tell from the graphics and indeed also the title, this is going to just be one long plug for our August antics at the Pale Imitation Festival this year. But, as you will hear me rattling on about, I suppose the label and the gigs are essentially the same as […]
