underneath the radar: week twenty
i know it's over..
For the last Radar showdown, there was a running commentary of the show, as interpreted by a huge and largely international listenership from the unofficial Bloc Party forum, alwaysnewdepths.com. You can check this out, in a thread that extended 12 pages, 166 posts and 740 views in the two hours the show went to air. Gawd. Isn't that unbelievable?

The show was more or less a best of session, my favourite tracks really. Songs from the Front Row featured White Stripes covering Bobby Dylan, Muse covering Nina Simone and Queen singing in Hungarian in Nep Stadium, Budapest.. as well as some Bloc Party, live from Paris. More covers included Placebo and Supergrass covering the Smiths and the Futureheads' impressive Kate Bush cover, Hounds of Love. Electronic Ecstasy featured Ladytron, Fischerspooner, live Depeche Mode and some rare New Order.
