Women Rock!

Thanks again to Sherry and Barb at Fallen Rock Zone for continuing to play our tracks. We were especially chuffed to be included on their 'Women Rock!' show on 12th December, which was a celebration of female musicians and female fronted bands featuring interviews and music from a range of genres, from rock to our own brand of wonky cheeky synth.

Given that the music industry has always been notoriously sexist it's refreshing to hear a female hosted show championing women who create interesting music, as opposed to merely being the eye candy while the male svengali pulls all the strings. Actually, that's exactly how we do things at Tingle Towers but keep it under your not really. Click here to listen to the 'Women Rock!' show.

Aside from listening out for our own tracks on Fallen Rock Zone, we've enjoyed listening to other bands that  the ladies have been playing. It's not all about us you know! A new one on us that we like is female fronted Myamoto who list their current location as 'Manchester and New York' so can't be bad. There's a taster below. 

Also, if you missed last week's Alternative Show you can listen again via the widget. 

As ever, we were thrilled and most grateful to be included in the show and enjoyed listening. We especially liked this one, another new one on us. I think I like this especially because the vocals remind me a bit of Mike Flowers though that's probably not the intention...(HT).

Helên Tingle does a jingle. (That's a rhyme). Fallen Rock Zone-Alternative Show by Fallen Rock Zone in Music Thu, December 6, 2012

Here's the latest edition of The Fallen Rock Zone Alternative Show. You may recall that when we were on last week, host Sherry suggested 'I Like The way You Butter My Bread' as a song title. We love a challenge, as long as it doesn't involve climbing stuff and getting puffed out, AND we'd also promised them some more show ident / jingle type things so HT came up with her first ever jingle which you can hear about 6 minutes in, how exciting! It's just a small thank you for all the airplay that Sherry and Barb have given us.

You can listen to the whole show via the widget below or download to listen at your leisure as usual. As well as loads of top tunes, they have an interview with Father Tiger AND  we noticed that the ladies have acquired a gong which we think adds a certain amount of gravitas to the show, and rightly so!
