I was in a bar up London recently. I got chatting a guy and he asked me where I was from? When I told him Bristol he responded with ”You’ve got a great music scene down there. I love Massive Attack.” I asked him what other artist they liked from Bristol and he listed off Roni Size and Portishead. This is a common response when I tell people I’m from Bristol.
Now I also love Massive, Roni Size and Portishead. But if thats all you know of Bristolian Music you’re missing out on some diamonds.
So I thought I’d do a Top 10 Bristol Artists. This isn’t a list of highest record sales, just some of my favourites.

APOLOGIES, SOUND QUALITY IS TERRIBLE!
Well, we had Noel West back in, so we knew it would be a cracking show, we wanted to make it as happy as possible to shake off the Mid-January blues for you listeners. And, that somehow led us to decide to hold our mics in our hands like Top of the Pops presenters, rather than in holders on the table….. the following 70 minutes is the result of that bad decision…
Anyway, I promise it’s still worth a listen, as we raise our glasses to Bristol’s MBE foster parents, welcome back the Ashton Court Festival, curse the name of the Iron Lady, hold our hands up to getting Buckle wrong, and end up rolling out the dodgy Jimmy Saville impressions.
Also, the music is crystal clear and top quality sound – we celebrate local lads Joker (easton) and Julio Bashmore (The Republic of Knowle West)!
Feedback always appreciated (by Dick, ignored by Durston).
