The Joy Formidable - Radcliffe and Maconie Show, 17th June 2009

This was broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 last month and I can't believe it's taken me this long to listen to it. The Joy Formidable have given us one of he best records of the year with their wonderful "A Balloon Called Moaning" which I'm sure you're all well familiar with by now and if your not shame on you. I've seen the band live a couple of times and am always impressed by their pure energy on stage and if you get the chance to see them you should drop everything and make it a priority. You won't be disappointed. This session features three tracks performed live including an interesting version of the current single "Whirring" on which Rhydian forgets to plug his bass in until near the end. A new track which they have been playing live recently called "Greyhounds In The Slips" and an unbelievable version of "While The Flies" which is just spellbinding. In the interview the band indicate that they are currently hard at work on their next record and I for one grow damp with excitement.
