Sheer Isolation – with Tim Orchard (Purr Records) (07/11/21)

This week’s Sheer Isolation is a fascinating listen for anyone wanting to get into music promotion. We’re joined by Tim Orchard from Purr Records – a Bath based promotion and record label during the 2000s. Tim talks about how he first got into music nights at Moles Club in the centre of Bath, how he introduced foreign bands onto the UK scene, and some of the lessons learnt along the way about getting the best out of your bookings.

On the music menu we play a track from one of Purr’s discoveries – Pete & The Pirates. We also play a tune from Tenderlore who are performing in Trowbridge this week. In News, we pick up on last week’s awareness campaign in Bristol to highlight the spiking of drinks in nightclubs.
