Geek Pop Podcast Special – Green Man Festival

Dalmatian Rex


We’re back from our adventures at Green Man Festival (check out the pictures in our group pool on Flickr) and just because we love you, we’ve recorded a special Green Man podcast. Which means this month instead of one podcast you get TWO. Don’t say we don’t spoil you.

This one’s an (almost) entirely live music podcast, recorded in Einstein’s Garden, so there are no iTunes download links, but you’ll be hearing from: Jonny Berliner, Phatmattbaker & Oort Kuiper, The Sound of the Ladies and Sibelius. You can find videos for a couple of the live performances in our last post.

You’ll also hear from Andrew Glester, the man in charge of Polar, a project that sets footage of the Arctic and Antarctic to classical music in a live concert. You can reserve tickets for the first performance in January here. It sounds beautiful.

EXCLUSIVE: Octopus, I Love You – Dalmatian Rex & the Eigentones

Dalmatian Rex played the Reproductive Stage at the Geek Pop ’09 virtual festival. You can find links to buy their albums at their website.

Geek Pop in Einstein’s Garden

Since last Thursday, the Geek Pop crew has been roaming the wet, muddy fields of the Glanusk Estate in the Brecon Beacons. The Green Man Festival is over and lovely though it was, we’re glad to be back in the warm and the dry and are nursing welly blisters…

Anyway, there will be many more highlights from Einstein’s Garden – where some of our artists played – on the next Geek Pop Podcast, but for now, content yourself with this video playlist. Sorry to all the bands we couldn’t catch because our camcorder battery ran out… hence it cutting out near the end of Jonny Berliner’s first song. (We tried recharging it in using the bikes at the amazing pedal power stand, but to no avail).

We’ve also uploaded our photos from Einstein’s Garden to our Geek Pop group pool in Flickr. Please feel free to add your own if you were around for Geek Pop artists.


Geek Pop sessions on Green Man FM

2010_08_19_GreenManFM.jpgFinally, Geek Pop has it’s own radio show! (Albeit for one weekend…)

Geek Pop Podcast host Jim will be taking to the airwaves on Green Man FM at Green Man Festival in Wales. He’ll be plugging Geek Pop artists playing on the Solar Stage and generally bigging up the Einstein’s Garden area of the festival. You can listen at 87.7FM around the festival site, online at GreenMan.Net or in iTunes, or listen again with MixCloud. All the links are here. Also, follow @GreenManFM on Twitter. Here are Jim’s slots:

3-5pm, Thursday 20 August

1-3pm, Saturday 21 August

Yay!


Geek Pop Podcast – August

Andrew O'Neill


This month in the podcast we take on evolution, serotonin and pi, and catch up with steampunk musician-slash-comedian Andrew O’Neill (left) to talk about the Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing‘s new album. (And pssst, tickets for their Edinburgh Fringe gigs on 16-17 August are going like hot cakes).

There’s a new audience-interactive section, which is by no means rocket science and basically involves you choosing between one thing and another thing. A poll, if you will. Scroll down to choose between LSD and walnuts (you’ll probably need to listen to the podcast to understand why).

Our live session this month is from Bert Miller & the Animal Folk, whom you can find at the Geek Pop ’10 virtual festival site, or in the video highlights from our Bristol gig. Buy their EP! It’s great!

Click the links below to find this month’s playlist tracks in iTunes, or here for our August Spotify playlist. Or try this one for all the songs we’ve ever featured on the podcast.

Jim in the Geek Pop podcast studioExtra bits: We thought we’d give you a sneaky peek into our podcasting world, so here we are in the “studio”. Well, here’s Jim, at least, with his customary cuppa, just before the show. And here’s that marvellous diagram Hayley was talking about in case you were looking for it.
