Bristol – More than just Massive Attack

BRISTOLMUSIC1

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.

For more on Bristol music follow me on twitter Durston Fletcher or search #frombristolwithloveplaylist.

From Bristol With Love 36

Listen Here – From Bristol With Love 36

Maggie Memorial Special!

The Sickening Shame of of the West Country, Dick Gherkin and Durston Fletcher, celebrate the passing of a tyrant in typical FBWL fashion, with added expertise and wisecracks from Bristol Radical Historian Mr Snuff!

Why Thatcher was a proper nause, including all her best bits – Chilean mass murderers, Section 28, NHS Trusts, the destruction of community and the deregulation that led us to 30 years of hell past, with 30 years of poverty to look forward to!

Easton Maggie Party – first hand accounts of a lovely party that got crashed by ‘outside elements’, dressed in riot gear!

Why riots and ‘sickening celebrations’ are all part of Bristol’s radical history!

Why Harry Redknapp needs to get out of London more, and we confirm Fascist Paolo Di Canio is a ‘bugiardo di merda’.

And finally a bit of Gas Talk, as we lick our lips in preparation for City’s relegation – mind the gap!

This week we play The Beat and local bands The Hit Ups and Three Kings High
