The Countdown

The Radio Caroline Countdown of Album Sounds

Saturday 12pm ~ 3pm with Al Duprés

Produced by Graham Coull

Countdown 13th to 27th September 2014

On this week’s brand new Caroline Countdown we have 20 Climbers, 9 Fallers, 2 non-movers & 9 New Entries, dropping out are Beck, Black Keys, Family Of the Year, Judas Priest, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Tesla, Nazareth, Rich Robinson and David Gray.

New Entries? Loads of ‘em! We have,
The Springtime Anchorage      – Liverpool band, excellent debut album
Elvin Bishop            – yes, the Fooled Around and Fell In Love veteran
Stiff Little Fingers    – first new album in 10 years from the Punk veterans
The Gaslight Anthem       – Allegedly they sound like Springsteen backed by The Clash!
Robert Plant
Maroon 5
Ryan Adams
Blacktop Deluxe        – Another album we picked up at the Cambridge Rock Festival, tight Blues-Rock trio
The Kooks               – Last album was decent but not a commercial success, how will this one fare?

Already got a few more in the pipe, pending actual Release Date, eg Counting Crows & Interpol followed in October by Winter In Eden & Devon Allman.
Not forgetting the (controversially-free-on-iTunes) U2 album!
