TVRDO 470 Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th of January

20 Years ago Muse released their 2nd album "The Origin of Symmetry" which made me a modest follower of this Teignmouth (Devon/UK) based band, we play the highlight of the album in my opinion "Space Dementia". In the Vault we have Stevie Lange with a promo song for a Womans bodyspray called Limara. The single, produced by the Jeff Wayne Music Company, was only distributed at Boots or simular shops when you bought 3 Limara products. Stevie Lange is nowadays a vocal coach for Robbie Williams, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Atomic Kitten a.o. One of her chart performances was with the band Night, fronted by Manfred Mann's Earth Band vocalist Chris Thompson and "Hot Summer Nights". Our album of the month is by Like Wendy "The Fisher" and we have a live re-release by Fairport Convention. New releases by Leprous, Tiger Moth Tales, Galaad, UNALEI, Qirsh and a cover version of Joy Division by The Tea Party (Isolation). Brand new is the debut album by Perfect Storm music from the Netherlands (Groningen). The 2nd hour long tracks by Malibran, Marillion and Vangelis with music he composed and performed for a fashion show.
