Burning Condors Live session:
With a brand new single released only last week The Burning Condors have been very busy of late putting the finishing touches to their eagerly awaited debut album as well as radio appearances galore and key showcase gigs. The single 'Honey Trap’ is a sleazy, dirty piece of 'surefire hit’ Rock ’N’ Roll and Americana. If that wasn’t enough it also features a Bonanza & Son favourite in the shape of ace harmonica player and frontman extraordinaire JD Wilkes of 'The Legendary Shack Shakers’ and ’The Dirt Daubers’. JD is a massive fan of The Condors and has taken them under his wing giving them support slots, American festival shows and production help, the stamp of approval indeed from our favourite ‘Kentucky Colonel’.

The Burning Condors have been developing their Rock 'n' Roll 'chops’ and are guaranteed to rip the roof off Bonanza & Son’s upcoming 5th birthday party for 'Countrier Than Thou' at the Lock Tavern; The burning Condors are the perfect Rock ’N’ Roll icing on the cake.

Expect an exclusive low-key, stripped-down intimate live session on todays radio show

+Celluloid Country: this week looking at the soundtrack to current blockbuster ‘Looper’ starring Bruce Willis.

Hymn For Her live sesssion:
Lucy Tight & Wayne Waxing are 'Hymn For Her', a band that hails from anywhere and everywhere in the good ol’ US of A or rather wherever they can feasibly park their Airstream trailer...

These guys are the 'real McCoy’ for sure, utilising traditional Country & Americana instruments, narrative themes and song structures whilst fusing it with a ferociously amplified and distorted electric sound that wouldn’t be out of place on a Butthole Surfers album as produced by 'Mellow Gold' era Beck on Johnny Cash's home porta-studio.

Their new release, ‘Lucy & Wayne and THE AM’AIR’ICAN STREAM’ was entirely recorded in their classic trailer on a coast to coast U.S tour. They stopped at various camp-grounds and friends driveways between shows, set up their gear in their Bambi/home recording studio, rolled ‘real’ reel tape and rocked out. Armed with a bullet mic, a three-stringed broom handle/cigar box, banjo, bass drum, hi-hat, and harp, this ‘lil duo causes massive earthquakes, tsunamis and twisters wherever they play.

+Michael Nesmith Special Pt.1
+ Featurettes Country Birthdays
+Celluloid Country where we look at a film soundtrack that significantly features Country and Americana.
+ lots of old, new and unreleased Country & Americana gems.

Josh Harty Live sesssion:
Harty is a messenger, a North Dakota songsmith whose lyrics fill the dark spots between the lines of our lives. Nowhere is his latest album and if the disc's reception and his performance of the new material in the United Kingdom are signs, Harty is poised to go a long, long way.

"A work of extreme intensity" reports the Lonestar Times of Italy, "with beautiful voice, warm and strong."
“The new songs are brave, and alarming. ‘Whiskey and Morphine’ is both a caution and a taunt of temptations. The album’s title track, “Nowhere,” makes that word a destination to be feared, a place only hope will keep away.”-Fearless Radio

It doesn't get more Americana than Josh Harty. His father, both a preacher and the Police Chief of his boyhood small town, was also Harty's music mentor. "I was either going to jail, or to hell," Harty muses. That kind of humor, that hell-bound hope, is in the center of Harty's music. Music captured on the new disc, polished in performance in America, and now ready for another UK tour in support of Nowhere.
