Hello GoodBye – 15.12.12 – Ft: Unit, Keeley Forsyth, Sisters and Victoria Yeulet

This final episode of Hello GoodBye for 2012 promises be a big bumper box of treats!

Featuring live music from: Unit, Keeley Forsyth & Sisters.

Also, author Victoria Yeulet joins us in the studio to read an extract from ‘Women Make Noise’, a new book that documents the role of women within contemporary music.

UNIT have been in existence since 2000, irritating and annoying everyone with their curiously mutated pop songs and avant gardening. Until 2011 the group consisted primarily of Chinese teenagers plus a token white man as a sop to ensure ethnic diversity. In November 2012 we completed our 24th album which is due out before December 31st. Our group is now so ridiculously eccentric and off the wall that even we can’t be sure who’s in it now. As far as I am aware, I think I’m still a member but that may be just a malicious rumour.
Unit singer Andy Martin’s books – A History Progressive Rock – Chinese Cinema 1905-2005 – Faded Fragments Of Distant Dreams (an autobiographical account of my 4 years in Alton Secondary School) are also available from their website.

Keeley Foryth is an actor, singer, performer and keen collaborator working with artists and film makers on live projects and experimental performances in galleries, museums, old biscuit factories. ‘The Scuttler’ is a character born out of a workshop with art duo boyleANDshaw in 2009 whilst investigating a one act play ‘I Rise In Flames Cried The Phoenix’ based around the last hours of DH Lawrence’s life. ‘The Scuttler’ became an extension of the character Brett or Bertha in the play and has been a way to develop a sound that connects her rural Lancashire roots, folk tales, domestic noise, digital murmurs and vibrations. Keeley Forsyth’s forthcoming album is entitled The Scuttler.

Sisters are a new choral based collaboration between Astrud Steerhouder (The Rayographs) and Victoria Yeulet.

Tune in between noon and 1.30pm on 104.4 FM in Central London or on-line via: www.resonancefm.com
