Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. I wanted to celebrate reaching 150 shows by relaxing my rules a bit and releasing three shows that highlight American alternative bands from the post-grunge 90’s who attained real success.

NHT150: THE BEATLES - Blue Jay Way
/

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. It perhaps comes across as quite offensive including The Beatles in a show called NEVER HEAD THAT. There aren’t many things they didn’t achieve – whatever that may have been, I am sure it wasn’t very important. But such is the way of things Read More

NHT149: THE CHILLS - Pink Frost
/

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. Sometimes when a song has that lo-fi sound it can be easy to think that there is something lacking and switch off. It can be the case though, that if we keep listening, something much greater reveals itself. New Zealand band THE CHILLS did Read More

NHT148: WICKED BEAT SOUND SYSTEM - I Don't Wanna Know
/

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. I really like that style of electronic music that can be incorporated under the broad banner of ‘chill-out’. Australian band WICKED BEAT SOUND SYSTEM liked to dabble in that genre. For me today’s feature track is an excellent example of what chill out is Read More

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. Most people would be aware that there is an extraordinarily rich musical diversity throughout the world.

NHT146: DALIS CAR - Create And Melt
/

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. When two high profile artists join together after the closure of their artistically respected previous bands, surely nothing could go wrong? In my opinion when ex-Bauhaus vocalist Pete Murphy joined with ex-Japan bassist Mick Karn to form DALIS CAR nothing did go wrong. The Read More

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. We are going to go a little bit heavier today. Austrian/Australian band NOT FROM THERE were not afraid to throw some electronics and other trickery into the standard drum, bass and guitar formula. Through light and shade, this song travels a great distance in Read More

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. A musical connection can come to us from many different directions, sometimes when we least expect it. One source which has often caught me off guard, is the TV commercial. Every now and then I get stopped in my tracks. Such is the case Read More

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. I first heard Swedish artist STINA NORDENSTAM after she supplied vocals for a band that I really liked. I enjoyed what she contributed to the extent that I knew that I should explore further – in doing so, I came to realise that she Read More

NHT142: XTC - Making Plans For Nigel

Hi, Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT. Highly inventive British band XTC paved out a uniquely original approach to their music. Cleverly constructed commercial tracks were driven by super cool riffs, and they were not shy of throwing in a dose of humour on top. Super stardom did allude them but Read More
