Wyrd Ways Rock Show 291

We’re sort of back to normal on this week’s Wyrd Ways Rock Show (if you can call ANYTHING on The Wyrd Ways Rock Show “normal”).  That obviously means a metric tonne of new stuff, including tracks from 1349, Sonata Arctica, Orange Goblin and Exodus.

This week’s Record Of The Week is introduced by David, there’s a Covered… Dr Jim’s here with another Hammer Of Retribution (yes, two shows in a row!) and Elfie’s got another Shock Of The New for us.  Are you seriously asking for more?  The easy way to get more is to subscribe, by heading for http://www.wyrdwaysrs.com/page12.htm and choosing the option that best suits you.

As always, if you subscribe or buy this week’s show, you get more.  You’ll be getting the show at a much higher quality level than the broadcast, as usual.  Very shortly, you’ll also be gaining access to an exclusive Members Area, which includes a massive archive of previous shows as well as various other bits and pieces.

The broadcast version of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show appears on The Wall every Monday at 11pm BST and Planet Mosh every Wednesday at 8pm BST.

New member joins the regular broadcast team

Paradise+Lost
Elfie with Aaron Aedy

With the return of Shock Of The New as a regular feature on The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, it only seemed fitting that someone with exactly the right mixture of enthusiasm for new music and deep knowledge of her local scene should be brought in to take the feature to new heights.

So it is with great pleasure that The Wyrd Ways Rock Show welcomes aboard our new Shock Of The New presenter, Suzi “Elfie” Horsely.

According to Carl, the founder, producer and presenter of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show:

This is something that’s been brewing for a while.  I’ve known Elfie for ages and she’s always been a good mate.  Someone I can trust.  That’s why I brought her onboard as a contributor to the website and as an interviewer.  This was the logical next step.  When it comes to new bands, Elfie’s got a real ear for talent and really knows her stuff.  This is going to be good!“.

Suzi’s debut as presenter of Shock Of The New will be in Wyrd Ways Rock Show CCLXXIX, which will be heard first on Planet Mosh at 8pm (BST) on Wednesday 14th May.  Soon after the show will be available for download at http://www.wyrdwaysrs.com.

If you are in a band, are a band manager, promoter or an independent label manager, get in touch with Suzi on elfie@nullwyrdwaysrs.com to get your band on the new Shock Of The New.
