More radio play.

As if being back on SBN’s playlist for the thrid time in a row and XFM’s playlist for the second time in a row, imagine my shock when on Monday evening, just as I’m drifting off to sleep with Radio 1 playing in the background, I hear what I think is the Crimea mentioned. Thinking it’s all a dream, I turn my head towards the radio and listen as something about a tour is mentioned, and then there it is again. “The Crimea”. And something about Opposite something? Five seconds later I’m out of bed jumping around the room as the Klutzville version of Opposite Ends is getting played out of my little grey bedside radio. You can relive my excitement by clicking here and skipping to 1 hour and 45 seconds into Monday 25th’s show, and then waiting a few minutes until The Crimea appear. Sadly the recording will be gone in a week, but you can view the tracklisting for the shows songs here, or click on [More] to see the tracklisting and what the shows presenter had to say about the band.

Radio 1 on The Crimea and Opposite Ends: “I’m gonna play a track now, I think it’s the only one I’ve brought in fresh to the studio tonight, by a band called The Crimea. It’s from a ten track demo. You might have heard Mark And Lard play the single Lottery Winners On Acid. They’re fronted by a guy called Dave MacManus who was Davey Crockett of The Crocketts, an Irish guy. The band’s half Irish and half London. When I got the demo in one track blew me away. It’s called Opposite Ends from The Crimea, playing loads of gigs about london and hopefully further afield soon. So I hope you like it as much as I do. Crimea, Opposite Ends, Radio 1.”
