We will also be playing tunes by Dog Chocolate, Dirty Viv, Unit, J. Temperance, Marcus Skeltonius, Bob Cryer, The 5th Runway & Thom Driver, who all purchased air-time for our Pay-As-You-Go Resonance fundraiser.
Shopping consists of three London based musicians; Billy Easter, Rachel Aggs and Andrew Milk, who from Nov 2012 all found themselves in the position of having free day times. They got together to form a band in the basement of Power Lunches arts cafe and venue, where Rachel and Andrew both work and regularly put on shows. There a star was born in the form of SHOPPING. They plan to release a 7″ single in May to coincide with their first European/UK tour, and an album in the Autumn, both to be released on Milk Records.
Olivia Chaney was originally booked to appear on the show at the beginning of February but due to a serious bout of the flu she had to cancel at the last minute, however, fortunately for us we have succeeded in re-scheduling her for a live session on HG this afternoon.
Quintessentially English but with a modern twist, Olivia Chaney developed her unique musical style after picking up the guitar and the Indian harmonium, she has since gone on to beguile audiences from Glastonbury to the Royal Opera House and New York’s Webster Hall.
