The Trypshop show 05 (Nearly Xmas Special) (21-12-2007)

The Trypshop returns after a 5 week delay.

Apologies all round but GHP commitments have
been pretty demanding of late...
Anyway, this week we have a 'nearly Christmas'
feel thanks to tracks by The Three Wise Men,
Carnegy Hall, The Virgineers and The Fab Four.
No featured artist this week but we kick things
off with The Nazz:

Fans of XTC should enjoy hearing their alter-ego's
in this weeks show.
I've finally dragged out some 'Dukes' and the 'best
christmas single that wasn't a hit but bloody well
should have been' in their Three Wise Men guise.

As promised here's the video for the Dukes
'Mole From The Ministry' that was aired on
'Whistle Test' in the mid eighties:

Also listen out for the 2 tracks by The Fab Four.
I think the album was released in 2002. 20
tracks of a Beatles tribute band doing xmas
songs in a Beatles (or dare I say 'Rutles') style.
Genial stuff.
Did my best to fulfill the request that came through
over the past 5 weeks.
If you want to hear something specific drop me a
line at or
pop it in the comments tab.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year !

Mark, as always, another fab show. My favourite so far.

Dukes, Bonzos and Fab Four - brilliant stuff.

How about some Idle Race in a future show?

Thanx, Andy

Wow, I'm still working my way through these after downloading them all but I've been transported back to my nights at the Alice In Wonderland in Dean Street and the All Night Psychedelic Film Festivals at the Scala.
Great music, keep up the good work Mark.

Lee said...

Excellent as always!

Mark, have you pitched this idea to BBC Radio as an actual show?
