So, the next leg of the JD Set is nearly upon us, and it’s down to me to start handing out places on the guestlist, on my show. The tour visits Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and London, so if there’s a gig near you – get blagging! There will be loads happening on my show – guests on the forum, interviews, sessions – but it really started today with Matt from Dinosaur Pile-Up choosing his top 5 tunes. As befitting a band who are bringing giant grungey riffs back into the public eye, there were some familiar names on the list: Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Foos, and what seems to be a (very healthy) obsession with the first few Weezer albums. Matt also let slip that he ended up loving all of these albums by finding them all, at the time, in his older brother’s bedroom!
Dinosaur Pile-Up play the JD set Tour on the 14th of May, I reckon it’s going to be a blinder..Right, time to get back to the show – loads more JD set stuff on the way….
