Happy birthday Gid. Kitchens of distinction, and Luna who I didn't realise were part Galaxie 500. Keep playing the good sounds.

M Craft, tuung, Three Cane Whale, this is the kit, ~ always a treat in such a store as Gid's. Like shooting fish in a barrel. Owning the phrase " a rich vein

From day one of 6 Music so so many from Gid. Editors early on, lately Cold Cold Heart and July Skies. There's no finer presenter.

Introduced me to (many, incl.) the ace Luke Haines wrestling album, Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation, Hidden Cameras and Paul McAlinden and of course Free Swim. More recently, I didn't know that Blancmange were back, and he discovered Hannah Peel and Der Plan for me. And of course it's never officially summer until he's played the 12" Lotus Eaters and the Baccarudas! Beats Workin'!

Broadcast, Headless Heroes, Papercuts ... too many to list.

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard. I think it was Gid, probably Gid.

Archie Bronson Outfit, Ryley Walker, Barry Adamson, just off the top of my head.

Any songs he wants. Cause it's his birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

The live set in the last hour has introduced me to so much ...

The theme tune to Why Don't You

Ariel Pink...Another Weekend. Love it.

Iggy's favourites The Sleaford Mods.

Eat Lights Become Lights, Haxan Cloak, The Lucid Dream and I'm sure there's more.

Happy Birthday to the "Guvn'r". Jon Hopkins. Immunity. particularly Open Eye Signal or Collider. Or The Clash. Janie Jones or Career Opportunities. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Kaia Kater - thanks Gid!

French for Rabbits. Top man!

Andrew Morgan.

Mr solo.
