Ten Songs Podcast #4

So this is April's podcast, a few days early but there you go. This time I'm playing a set of songs from the Maximum Rocknroll compilation CD Public Safety (see, which I picked up a while ago. I thought it'd be fun to play some of my favourite songs from that as well as the usual mix of punk, garage, hardcore and folk. It's Sunday evening and I'm not feeling very wordy right now but I'm pretty stoked on how this episode came out. Let me know what you think. Woo. - Phil Chokeword

Blah Blah Blah:
1. I still don’t know what I’m doing. Sorry. I even bought a book on podcasting. This was put together on my family's PC using Audacity and a USB record player, some over played CDs and 7"s and a cheap Internet microphone. Plus this MP3 is a lower bit rate than most in order to keep it at a manageable size. So if there’s a song on here that you dig and want to buy the record it came off, don't be put off if it sounds kinda rough or scuzzy. I can guarantee it'll sound better in the original format. I hope that makes sense!
2. I either asked the bands (Circus Act, Mark Gunnery) or the record label who put out the record I was playing (Recess, Maximum Rocknroll, Dirtnap, Crypt) if it was OK to podcast their songs and they were cool with it. I think one of the great things about the Internet is that its really easy to get in contact with people whose music you dig and I'd like to take time to thank them for allowing me to play their songs. Cheers!
3. It goes without saying that if you like this podcast, let your friends know about it! Please? Thank you. And get in touch too if you dig it/hate it/have any tips. tensongspodcast [at] googlemail [dot] com
