Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More Radio #31, #32, #33 & #34

Original art by: Mod Art Designs

My bandwith on Podomatic was smashed to bits within 6 days of the last show being uploaded,  which is fantastic, however, that left my account disabled, which meant I could not upload for a month, so here are the last four shows for your listening pleasure.

Thank you for listening to the show and making it what it is!

I hope you enjoy the shows and please do feel free to share the links and help promote the bands and the scene. x

Baby Scream - Greatest Failures OUT NOW!

"Greatest Failures" is the latest offering from one of the most underated bands/songwriters out there. Ironically, it is actually a compilation album of Baby Screams great songs that not enough people have discovered yet to call the album, "Greatest Hits!" This was surely a tongue in cheek title for the album, because to create songs with the amount of depth and magnitude contained within these tracks can hardly be classed as a failure, quite the opposite in fact!

When I first discovered the band, I was really taken with the mix of musical styles and the ultimate blend of Lennon and Bolan vocal stylings which make these guys stand out from the crowd.

I have written about several Baby Scream releases, which you can find in the search facility on the blog, this is the perfect introduction to a band who should be so much bigger and deserve to be listened to.  The songs are intelligent, well written and brimming with melodies that will keep your attention throughout the duration of the 15 tracks on the album.

Buy the album and check out the impressive back catologue here:

Contact, Befriend, Follow, Like and Love Baby Scream here:

We may consider taking advertisers on the show in the future, to be able to expand the bandwith and storage of the shows.  Should you be interested in sponsoring or advertising something that is relative to the audience of the show, please contact me at icecreammanpowerpop@hotmail.com
