Monkey Mind – 12/19/2011

You know, sometimes when you’re doing radio you get this warm, full feeling of the music flowing and filling you as you select and channel it, sweeping your hands into the river of sound to speed it along and knowing – just fucking *knowing* – that you’re doing good in the world when you usually just muddle along, muttering to yourself about how awful everything is.

I don’t know if you’ll feel it like I did, but this show was definitely one of those times. Thanks for listening, and thanks to taintradio for giving me the chance to feel that again.

House of Mercy radio show play list
week starting Saturday 17th December 2011
presented by Barry Marshall-Everitt
To review/preview and for station download go to

This week in session we were promised the Wagon Tales with hot
banjo picker Leon Hunt, we we ended up with half the Wagon Tales
that make up Leon’s band…….confusion was soon sorted out with
some top notch bluegrass played by this quartet.
An extra feature this week is the visit of Maverick Magazine’s editor
Alan Cackett, he talks about the re-launch of Maverick in the
printed format, plays some of the featured artists in the new issue and
generally joins in the festive mood in the snake pit studio.
Our record of the week comes from a brand new East London duo, Black & Scarr,
their debut album is destined to become a classic, sounds like a Nashville roots
album with colorful East London lyrics with a sprinkle of coal dust from Johonny
Blacks home country of England’s North East. The coming together of Emma Scarr
& Johnny results in ‘ North & South ‘ our record of the week.

House of Mercy radio play list
week starting 10th December 2011
presented by Barry Marshall-Everitt
for review/preview/network download go to

This week is session we have a member of the East Nashville musical fraternity, a guitar for hire sideman to many but now with his second solo album a writer in his own right. Jon Byrd’s 1st album ‘ Byrd’s Auto Parts ‘ was a loved by all who heard it, his second and latest album ‘ Down At The Well Of Wishes ‘ on Longleaf Pine Records, has fired up international interest and is now highly acclaimed by all. We caught Jon at the tail end of his tour on Thanksgiving Day and he plays songs from both his records.
Our record of the week comes from a musical friend of the HoM, Brigitte DeMeyer’s first solo record ‘ Red River Flower ‘ was a long term visitor to the radio show and with the release of her new record ‘ Rose Of Jericho ‘ ( self release ), we find another inspiring collection of songs and as with her first, Al Perkins supplies the highest of quality peddle steel and dobro, the major difference between the two records is that Brigitte now shares the producing credits with 1st album producer Brady Blade.

Monkey Mind – 12/05/2011

The usual all-over-the-map stuff, hopefully with enough you’ve never heard before to make it worthwhile. That spoken word Eddie Harris, though; I don’t know what to say about it except it’s an undeniably fascinating foul-mouthed record – mostly fascinating for raising the question, “How the fuck did this ever get released?”
