the underground route

Shut All The Clubs was included in Lord Litter's Magic Music Box on KWTF 88.1 in Bodega Bay California (where The Birds was filmed)

A German DJ playing a mix of international independent music in Berlin, speaking in English, broadcast in California and relayed via the net throughout the world. The 21st century is astounding sometimes. 

It's great to feature again in such a long running show and to have been there on the German language show on Radio Marabou and on the earlier Kentucky Fried Royalty show long long ago too. A sense of continuity. 

Lord Litter has been a lynch-pin of the underground music scene for many decades hosting radio since 1987 and was frequently described as the German John Peel.
His shows only feature physical releases and only those of independent artists (really independent ones). In his words:
"I only present physical releases. Today's mainstream, the internet
including "digital only releases" and so called "free services" like Facebook, where one person earns LOTS because each and everyone taking part means MONEY to the owner, this needs an alternative"
Here's the show link 
The Speed Of Sound played a walk up gig on Thursday night, we'd been expecting to rehearse but Kevin had double booked himself and was supposed to be running an open-mic night. We got there early and ran through our allocated Bob Dylan song for the Electric 50 gig on 17 May a couple of times and had it in the bag before anyone else got there.
Set List:
Visions of Johanna
I Don't Want Your Attentions
The Moment Is Now
Seen It All Before
Day In Day Out
