In an effort to clear myself of any nepotism I would like to point out that I had asked The Last Battle to come into the studio and do this session long before I was asked to join the band. Clearly I made a mistake in asking them to come in, should of asked Rage Against the Machine instead, always wanted to be Tom Morello... Anyways, hope you enjoy the session and I'll get Chasing Owls to you as soon as possible!

Apologies to anyone that may have tried to listen to our show this week! Some silly went away with the studio keys on Saturday night which meant that once again we were locked out, as were all other Fresh Air members!
Not to be beaten however, we rallied and took ourselves to Studio 2 and recorded what would have been our live show, which we will post up on here soon enough.
There *will* be a show next week at our normal time (which is 2-3 Sunday in case no-one knew of the change!). It will however be a pre-record as we will both be down in Manchester that weekend, but fear not, we will return and you should tune in anyway as you'll get to hear the 'Over the Wall' tracks and banter that we had with the guys.
That's all for now!

This afternoon Glasgow's Over The Wall came into the Fresh Air studio and played us a few tracks from their brand new album. The band's full length debut 'Treacherous' goes on general release next Monday (the 22nd) and judging from their live tracks its definitely worth checking out.
We also did an interview which will be uploaded once I've edited out all the hilarity and aired on Found in Sound on Fresh Air - The Alternative next Sunday from 2 til 3. If you like what you hear they will be playing Leith Tape Club on a boat on the 27th November which has an excellent lineup also featuring Eagleowl, Withered Hand and FOUND.

You can download our first show! It's only the second half as we both completely forgot about recording it, but it at least gives an idea of what you'll be getting if you listen in tomorrow from 11 til 12 on Fresh Air or iTunes.
After listening back to it, my co-host has decided to call me "Cautious squirrel", if that's not an awesome name for a blog/show then I don't know what is!

Just before heading out on a UK tour, Three Blind Wolves' frontman Ross Clark came into Fresh Air and played us a few songs spanning from his first solo album Anthems in Clams up to the latest single Echo on the Night Train and new song Golden Cross. The only Scottish gigs that I've found any information on will be at The Greenside in Glenrothes (or technically Leslie if you're a local) on the 18th November and at the Sneakyfest all day event on the 27th November along with bands such as And So I Watch You From Afar and of course Trapped Mice (hehe).
And if that's not enough for you, if you go to their myspace page you can get a free download of Three Blind Wolves' new track The Maybe Forest.
