The Advisory Circle on The Freak Zone

Special guest on Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone this Sunday is Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle (and verger to the parish).  That's BBC6 Music Sunday 28th 5:30 pm or all next week on Listen Again.

Jon pre-recorded the show on Wednesday and by all accounts had a splendid time, amongst tracks from the new album they'll be playing an exclusive Advisory Circle track you won't hear anywhere else.

Talking of JB there's an excellent piece all about musical arrangement on his blog Cafe Kaput which will be of great interest to all you composers and songwriters.

Oh .. and talking of BBC6 I'd urge all of you Facebookers to join the save BBC6 Music group. A truly great cause and well worth a little click to register your support.

It seems likely that by pure bad luck we were indexed on the very day the site went down last month. We're doing all we can to get this fixed, so meanwhile don't be fooled into buying any dodgy spook hunting hardware.

no official exisitence

Far more interesting news from Jon Brooks of the Advisory Circle. He'll be giving the us the benefit of his wisdom on all sorts of subjects at his new blog, Cafe Kaput.
