Interview with Alan from Bearos

Dr Alan Farmer from Bearos Records recently recorded an interview with Brum Radio which you can catch up with on Mixcloud

Back in 1999 Saloon were incredibly excited by the noises coming out of Birmingham from bands such as Pram, Avrocar, Plone and, of course, Broadcast which is why we made a concerted effort to try and get in on the action. We played numerous gigs in Birmingham at The Jug of Ale for Alan and Arthur from The Catapult Club. We also made some good friends. 'Electron' our single for Bearos Records was probably the most effortless record we ever put out, and I still list is among my very favourite Saloon releases. Bearos also saw the debut of my ongoing project Rodney Cromwell with the track 'Radaghast the Brown' featuring on their Lord of the Rings tribute album.  

In the interview, as well as spinning 'Electron' Alan talks about how Bearos championed Birmingham bands between 1998-2007 as well as talking about Kushikatsu Records and his current fascination with Japanese pop. 

Rodney Cromwell will be coming to Birmingham as part of the Ohm from Ohm tour, and on the opening 
night on 15th March, Alan will be DJing for us playing entirely Japanese indie and electo pop. Details on the Ohm from Ohm website.
