Ivor Novello Award-winning indie London band Athlete (Wires) perform live to coincide with the release of their new album
Black Swan. Plus a live set by Mr Hudson (ex-Mr Hudson and the Library), whose new solo album Straight No Chaser was co-produced by US hip-hop artist Kanye West.
Another chance to hear Radio 2's ode to gothic rock (aka goth) - a genre of moody, introspective, ethereal, non-chirpy and at times droney music that emerged during the post-punk era of the late 1970s. Goths were swathed in black from head to toe, and identified with the "dark" pop of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, The Cure and Sisters of Mercy. Andrew Collins explores the origins and myths of goth, and looks at its modern incarnations (eg Marilyn Manson), including its cult pull with disaffected (and occasionally violent) suburban American youth. With input from
Banshees Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Severin , ex-chart star Gary Numan , Peter Hook (ex-Joy Division), film director Tim Burton and regulars of Soho's Batcave club: Peter Murphy and David J (of Bauhaus) and Jon Klein (of Specimen).
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
