RALPH'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHARTPublished on 18.11.17 and as played afterRALPH'S INDIE SHOW on RADIO KC - 19.11.17 - from 5-7pm

No 1 Snippet

Colchester's favorite son Johnno Casson aka Snippet is the uncrowned king of feelgood pop-esque music and his latest album Human Good isn't bucking that trend. Johnno takes you on a journey of "people-rich" stories that encompasses a wide array of characters including fraudsters, pimps, prostitutes, drinkers, users and abuser’s and simple everyday folk just trying to make sense of this world. 

No 2: Bud Sugar
No automatic alt text available.

Ralph's favorite video this week is the Bud Sugar 'Masterpiece' of their fans fave track VIRAL. They hijacked 25 of the most iconic online VIRAL moments from recent years to create an unexpected collaboration with their viral heroes!


Chroma Vampires Packshot.jpg

South Wales trio CHROMA set to release their explosive new single Vampires October 27th via Datod Records with the track already available to download.
Vampiresis their first release since playing the BBC R1 Introducing Stages at Reading & Leeds Festival 2017. Needless to say Ralph's giving Vampires a spin on the Radio KC Indie Show so tune in on Sunday 5th November for the Bonfire Night Special from 5-7pm UK time.

No 4: Martin Stephenson & The Daintees

Ralph's Top 10 Chart - as played on Radio KC - 19.11.17

Just in time for Christmas the ever-prolific Martin Stephenson accompanied by The Daintees have come along with an album that will have any party up on it's collective feet and dancing; whether it's having a knees-up or waltzing the night away.

It kicks off with a rockabilly-esque The Whisky and I'm not sure if it's an advert for the benefits of Uisge-Beatha (The Water Of Life) or a dire warning. But one thing is for sure, it's a rollicking start to a quality collection of tuneage.

No 5: Names

Ralph's Chart Played Radio 19.11.17
Limb by Limb by Pembrokeshire-based duo Names is the follow up single to Backs Turned, a song that has already been played on Ralph's Indie Show on Radio KC. It has been described elsewhere as “a wintry soundscape with all the fluency, space and atmosphere of the MogwaiLes Revenants soundtrack”. 

No 6Rosie Bans

If you were a fan of Sophisti-pop back in the 80's when bands ranging from Swing Out Sister and Prefab Sprout to The Blue Nile and Everything But The Girl ruled the charts, then you're going to love Identify Yourself; the debut album by young, flame-haired Glasgow songstress Rosie Bans
The album is funded by Creative Scotland and it's ethos falls in line with that of Ralph's Life regarding mental health awareness. 

No 7: Purest

Yielding more swagger than a Kevin Shields customized Jazzmaster, the intense sounds of Sheffield guitar bandits Puresthave come knocking firmly at the door of mainstream radio with new singleWaiting Forto be released later this month.

The Sheffield 4-piece’ debut made such an overwhelming first impression on Gary Powell of The Libertinesthat he, along with label partner Wayne Clarke, signed them to their label 25 Hour Convenience Store Records for their second full release. 

No 8: Puppet Rebellion

One of the advantages of being a dog with a blog is the that every now and again a bit of a gem drops into the kennel's inbox. Puppet Rebellion are Oliver Davies on vocals, Dave Wimbush on guitar, Craig Gibson on guitar, James Halliwell on bass and Henry Rogers on drums. Together they've put together an album of well crafted alt-pop that should see them ascend the musical firmament not only in their native North West but UK wide.

No 9:The Gravity Drive
Image may contain: night
Ralph's favorite video this week is Shooting Star by The Gravity Drive. They are the hugely talented husband and wife duo Elijah and Eva  Wolf whose music never fails to garner critical acclaim.
