Roundup of Retrogaming Roundup

UK Mike

Following on from UK Mike's Q&A session in the Twitch Bar he's been kind enough to compile a list of some of his favorite episodes from the past 10+ years of the Retrogaming Roundup podcast. I've been an avid listener from the very early days but if you're looking to delve into the nerdy and occasionally controversial world of UK Mike and his chums then here are some great episodes to get you started.

Beach Sessions, Waterbeach - 3rd December 2022

Written by Aidy.

We've played Waterbeach a fair amount over the years in various venues, including a pub function room and a retired military base. On this occasion, we were playing at the baptist chapel. It was a lot of fun and the first time we'd played here in about three years.

We played along with The Pony Collaboration and Kerry Devine (who actually did the backing vocals on our first album for the song 'The British IBM').

LISTEN TO THE ALBUM

Refuse Trucks in Films on BBC Radio 6 Music

Written by Aidy.

Excited to announce that Tom Robinson has played 'Refuse Trucks in Films' on BBC Radio 6 Music. 

He had this to say about it "...manages to marry authentic Americana with a nerdy and uniquely British trainspotter-sensibility. It's from their charming new long player 'Friday Night at the Twitch Bar.'"

The Hub, Cambourne - 4th November 2022

Written by Aidy.

Best gig ever! Lord Conrad's on tap, retrogaming and it was great to see everyone in "the real world".

Rented a small venue and put on a fairly intimate acoustic set and retro night to celebrate the release of the new album.

Massive thanks to everyone that came along, looking forward to doing this again at some point.
