Gonna be playing a couple of dates with Playdoe over the next couple of weeks. Definitely one of our favourite groups (see interview here) and we were mightily upset when we were stopped from playing their thought provoking yet damned funky cover version of a Seun Kuti track The Bombs by the over sensitive BBC powers that be. We were also stopped from playing an Astrosnooze remix of the track Bomb Threat by This Is Radio Freedom. The references to bombs was deemed insensitive with the situation in Gaza happening??!! If anything I think tracks like The Bombs should be played even more but unfortunately we had to put up with that horrible feeling of being helplessly gagged. If you are a DJ please give it as much exposure as possible, we have a radio edit too if you need it just get in touch.
