IN CONVERSATION: Goofy18

IN CONVERSATION WITH:
GOOFY18

Please introduce yourself... 

Hi! I'm Pankin. I'm bass & vocal of GOOFY18. I'm playing with the drummer Migi. We are Tokyo based two piece rock band! And I am also an event organizer. I'm working with a team named "Main actor is U!!" Our event is small and unique!
How would you describe your music? 
Effect laden bass sounds over frantic free drumming, tied together with pretty harmonies and a power pop sensibility.

What are you doing at the moment? 
Our 7" vinyl has been released in September. We are preparing the recording for the next release. And next year, we would like to go to England, so we are collecting funds for that.



What is the best thing about making music? 

For me, that's a feeling of dissatisfaction to myself, to the environment, to the society.

You are only allowed to keep one of your tracks, which one would you choose and why? 
"LOVE&WAR". Because I want to continue exercising. Please watch…

TODAY'S LISTENING: Tombstones In Their Eyes - Open Skies

TODAY'S LISTENING: Tom Bettis - Alla Deriva

We have a classy piano instrumental for you today from the talented London composer, Tom Bettis. The track is called Alla Deriva and it is about being away, apart from something or someone that you love. It is a real treat for your ears!

TODAY'S LISTENING: Anastasia Elliot - Cigarettes & Gasoline

Today we have a rather dramatic pop production presented with a deliciously oddball video, the single is called Cigarettes & Gasoline by Anastasia Elliot. The song builds slowly but certainly sparks into life with an incredible amount of energy towards the end. We really loved the overall styling and sinister visuals.

TODAY'S LISTENING: B.L.Underwood - Analogue Experiments in the Dead of Night

More delightful electro today, this time from our very own B.L.Underwood (aka Mr Blu) with his latest solo release Analogue Experiments in the Dead of Night. The collection comprises of a series of electronic instrumentals made with new analogue synths from Behringer - Model D, Neutron and K2 and a few additions from Ableton Live. One track even includes a sample from some manic noise we made together way back in 1983. Atmospheric and sometimes a little disturbing, this should keep your ears twitching nervously.

TODAY'S LISTENING: Alice Hubble - Polarlichter

From the mighty Happy Robot Records we have the equally mighty Alice Hubble with her terrific album Polarlichter. We have been playing Alice on our Dandelion Radio show since Goddess came out as a single earlier in the year and we are currently featuring this album with enthusiasm unabated. Kick The Habit is so incredibly chirpy that you tend to forget all the problems in the world. Big beaming smiles all round for this one. Give it a spin!

TODAY'S LISTENING: Black Zinda - Bleed For Me

We like this track for failing/succeeding to fall within any particular genre, the song is called Bleed For Me and it is by the US band Black Zinda. They formed via Instagram (how very modern!) and create something a little different. See what you think, maybe check out their album Black Zinda.

TODAY'S LISTENING: My Lo-Fi Heart - Again

TODAY'S LISTENING: Move.By.U - Red Light Fever

Today we have Red Light Fever by move.by.u, an alt/indie band out of Riverside, USA. As you will hear the track has great productions values with a catchy and explosive sound. Pop rock with a punch. Give it a go.

TODAY'S LISTENING: Lijo - Push Me

Here's a tune which we absolutely loved the moment we first heard it, the track is called Push Me and it comes from the delightful Dutch musician, Lijo. The song is a perfect combination of punchy electronica and a slightly oddball lyric, another one of those tracks which we have had on constant repeat play. Even better is that it is presented with a terrific performance dance video. Expect to hear Push Me on our radio show soon!

LISTENING POST: Homeless Echoes - Games In My Brain

Today we have Homeless Echoes with Games In My Brain. Apparently this was written in 2003 but is only being released now, even more strangely it has the feel of one of those wonderfully quirky electro tunes from the early 80s. A sort of funky in drainpipes earworm.

TODAY'S LISTENING: Paul Mosley and The Red Meat Orchestra - People Are Idiots

We like songs coming from a slightly different production angle, so that's why we're enjoying People Are Idiots by Paul Mosley and The Red Meat Orchestra. Taken from the new album You're Going To Die! - that's two truths told within two titles; along with the promise of junk percussion, sci-fi synths and pizzicato strings buoyed up the all-star singers of the Red Meat Orchestra’s call-and-response backing vocals. Don't be foolish, give it a spin.

TODAY'S LISTENING: The Equatorial Group

The Equatorial Group are from our hometown and they have an excellent new album out called Falling Sands, the follow-up to their last album, Apricity, which we played a fair amount on our Dandelion Radio show.
The band feature Twe Fox (keys & vocals), Andy Tourle (bass & vocals), Dave Davies (guitar & vocals), Mike Tourle and Neil Grimes (drums) and Helen Weeks (vocals & pedal steel/guitar). They produce "a gentle landscape of sparkling harmonies or a thirst-inducing ramshackle racket, as the moment takes them".

Falling Sands is one of those albums which you can happily listen to on repeat, over and over again. The front cover of the album depicts a view from Eastbourne's Cavendish Hotel, a place we know well and we may even have stayed in that very same room.

Go grab a coffee, sit down and take a listen.

TODAY'S LISTENING: Halfbeak - I'll Be Your One-Way Mirror

Time for something a little more oddball today, we have Australia's Halfbeak with I'll Be Your One-Way Mirror. Taken from the new album Innocent Bystander, this track should hopefully have you scratching your head a fair amount, but we must say it does have a brilliant, weird charm - even better it has a video using loads of old film footage. A perfect combination.

TODAY'S LISTENING: Åyusp - Trans-Edale Express

Some rather spiffing electronica for you today in the form of Trans-Edale Express by Åyusp.

Åyusp (pronounced "Oy-usp") is an experimental electronica outfit consisting of two Sheffield based musicians, Graham McElearney (who has previously worked with bands such as Regal Worm, Amorphous Androgynous, In The Nursery, Animat and Reverend & The Makers) and Paul Mills (formally a member of PsychoAcoustic SoundClash and The Weird & The Wonderful).

The band formed out of a shared affection for German electronic music of the Seventies, fusing these influences with an equal passion for ambient, classical, industrial and contemporary dance music.

In addition to working on their self-released debut album, Åyusp, they have also been doing a bit of audio archaeology recreating an excerpt from Tangerine Dream's 1975 York Minster gig. This piece was recently played by Stuart Maconie on his BBC 6 Music "Freak Zone" show.

If you like your retro synths, we think you…

TODAY'S LISTENING: Jaelee Small - TicToc

Taken from the new EP Memoirs (Part II) this is a super track by Jaelee Small called TicToc. It has a wonderfully expressive vocal and some clever production, sounding simple but quite intricate at the same time. The EP is part of a harmony-soaked concept album through a timeline of a teenage youth. Enjoy!

TODAY'S LISTENING: Blume - Rewind

Something a little darker for you today, we have Blume with a track called Rewind. Blume are a Post-Punk/Shoegaze band from Edmonton, Canada and this song really impressed us with its gentle menace. Taken from their Days Go Slowly EP, which was apparently recorded on a Tascam multi-track in a spare bedroom, we rather like their sound. Please indulge yourselves!

Today we have a BIG pop production for you from Charlotte Rosse with Pray To You - performed like a sassy James Bond theme, the dynamics in the production and soaring vocal should flood your speakers. We are looking forward to the video which should be coming out next month. If it is anything like the gorgeous promo photos, then it should be terrific.








TODAY'S LISTENING: Grand Sun - Feeling Tired

This video for Feeling Tired by Portugal's Grand Sun really amused us, so we thought we would share it with you. It is sort of 60s garage rock with a big, sunshine grin. The song is really catchy and includes the line "Honey bunny, I love you so much..." so how can you resist?
