Toadcast #96 - The Excast The Excast is so named because I am playing a lot of people's former bands.  There's Shane MacGowan's Nipple Erectors, Phil Chevron's Radiators, Shilpa Ray's Beat the Devil and Billy Bragg's Riff Raff.

I concentrate so much on new music these days that I often decide whether or not I like a band on the basis of a handful of demos, maybe a single, sometimes a debut EP, stuff like that.  And of course, bands don't stumble into the world fully-formed, it takes some of them ages to become brilliant, and a lot of the time the initial forms of a band can be really strange, presumably because the people in question were still casting around a bit for their sound.

So there's a bit of that here, but it's not all that rigid a theme, and the playlist is a bit messy but, erm, well never mind.  There are some great songs, so enjoy!
