Audio: Listen again to our live show

Re-live the experience - at home with The Spiraltones

Pod Cast In association with Sofa City Bands Collective, we're delighted to present the 'listen again' for our live show which went out on October 22. Re-enjoy music and spoken word as it happened, from top local talent  Accrington Stanley, Grant Sharkey, Angela Chicken, Carrie Aaron and of course The Spiraltones. Read on for the audio player and to hear all the jolly japes – but don't ring in: this is a RECORDING.


 The show features:


This is the 'warts and all' live mix; we hope to be able to bring a re-mixed version in the future.

Show may include 'adult themes/language' so we suggest exercising appropriate listening judgement.

We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who gave of their time to perform, help with the technical side (special thanks Blue Compute) and who otherwise supported our most ambitious show to date – and of course everyone who tuned in, and participated by sending messages via social media on the day.

Hear our previous pods here and here. We look forward to more live loveliness at some time in the future – when we've all recovered from this one!
