Bill Direen (pictured on bandcamp)

The third of the three-volume set You’re not invited this Wednesday night includes one of my favourite recent tracks, The Utopians are Just Out Boozing, by The Bilders. There’s a sample below.

Bill Direen is so prolific with the Bilders and as a writer that it’s hard to know where to start. A future show will be just for him I think, but for now, set your alarm clock for 8.00pm on Wednesday night and point your browser at

As well as the boozing utopians, there will also be everything you need for a party –  Transistors, the Opposite Sex, some field recordings of animal noises, and a weird talkback radio / Sonny Bill Williams / Dire Straits mashdown.

Tune in!
