NIGHTSWIMMING TWO

On Wednesday 15th May I played the seminal Jimmy Eat World Album Bleed American.

An album you wouldn’t necessarily think I would be into but my oh my its a belter. Released in 2001 on my 20th birthday. It is a classic American Album. It is both Radio Friendly and deep. “Side one” is very commercial. Driving Guitars and catchy chorus’s. “Side two” is darker, tinged with sorrow.

If Jimmy Eat world are a band you have heard of but never investigated please! get involved!

Some Facts talked about on the show:

    • Out of concern that the album’s title may be misinterpreted, the album was re-released as the eponymous (Jimmy Eat World) following the September 11 attacks. In addition, the title track was renamed “Salt Sweat Sugar”.
    • Self financed after previous album sold just 10.000 copies
    • “The Middle” was written after Jimmy Eat World had been dropped from Capitol Records after their previous album Clarity had been released. Jimmy Eat World’s first album Static Prevails had sold just 10,000 copies in 1996 and Capitol Records decided to drop the band in 1999 due to a change in priorities. Singer/guitarist Jim Adkins explained to the Dallas Observer: “We were just about invisible there and it wasn’t going to get any better
    • New album – Damage Released on 10 June 2013

NightSwimming One

Good Evening.

My name  is Matt, I live in Southend on sea, I have 2 Cats ( Arthur and Amsterdam) I am a Beatles and Wrestling Nut.

On Wednesday 8th March I presented my first ever show, not just for Phoenix FM but ever! It was a Buzz to say the least! I looked at Abbey Road, The Beatles last recorded Album. Played it track by track interspersed with stories about the albums and the songs themselves.

 

 

Abbey Road Facts featured on the show:

 

  • First issued on 26th September, 1969 Abbey Road was the final Beatles album to be recorded but not their last to be released.
  • The album was originally going to be called Everest, after the brand of cigarettes the band’s sound engineer, Geoff Emerik, smoked. That idea was nixed when they realized that actually going to the Himalayas to do the photo shoot would be a bit prohibitive, and they tried to think of something closer to home.
  • Virtually every tourist who crosses Abbey Road has had their photo taken in the pose (much to the chagrin of drivers), but there have been other, more famous folks, who have imitated the famous photo: The Red Hot Chili Peppers for their Abbey Road EP, naked, but for a few strategically placed (and somewhat optimistically large) socks; Homer Simpson’s barbershop quartet The Be Sharps, with their album, Bigger Than Jesus; The Simpson family on the cover of Rolling Stone; Benny Hill, for his Best of Benny Hill album; Booker T and the MG’s; Kanye West’s Live Orchestration DVD; even SpongeBob SquarePants did it, with an episode called “Krabby Road.”
  • Frank Sinatra once commented that “Something” was his favourite Lennon-McCartney song(though the song was actually Harrison’s) and “the greatest love song ever written”.
  • PAUL circa-1994: “‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ is my analogy for when something goes wrong out of the blue, as it so often does
  • The final overdub session for “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” would be the last time that all four Beatles worked in the studio together.

I also play a selection of tunes that suit that late night vibe. Always open to suggestions for albums to play. Feel free to get in touch @mattsradioshow

 

You can listen to me on air every Wednesday between 10pm and Midnight.

 

Matt
