The We Need No Swords podcast: Episode 1


The inaugural episode of our new podcast is now available on Mixcloud! Listen and enjoy , and have a squizz at the tracklist below the widget.

For this first show, I’ve focused on stuff that’s turned up in the We Need No Swords postbag over the past six months or so, but which I haven’t quite had the time to write about on the blog. Messy stuff, jazzy stuff, droney stuff, noisey stuff, electronic stuff. You know the drill.

Future shows will be a bit less… archival. But in the meantime, put the kettle on, sit back and relax as you listen to just under an hour of totally abrasive, out-there sounds.
