funkenstiensAnd out of the darkness there came light... So goes the blurb for this innovative band consisting of Sally Wyatt, lead guitar and vox, Alexander Palass, bass and vox, and Jon carter, drums. Blending funky dance music with sprinkles of rock this band delivers what can be described as a tight and melodic set, and will make the hairs on the back of your neck, if you got any, stand firmly to attention.

Puzzling stuff...

Here at Bridport Radio we love pirates and we are open minded folks so this Cosmo Jarvis track "Gay Pirates" had to go up. Part sea shanty, part protest song, it's all good as a toe tapping tune.

Belleruche consist of vocalist Kathrin deBoer, guitarist Ricky Fabulous and DJ Modest merge traditional blues, soulful lyrics and funky beats into a captivating mix. This slinky number entitled “Clockwatching” is from their album 270 Stories.
