Hull Music Archive Radio Show - monthly on West Hull FM
The HMA Radio Show returns to West Hull FM on Wednesday May 4th 2016 at 7pm - we're now LIVE on air on the first Wednesday of each month, with an hour of fantastic Hull music from across the decades - all genres, all eras... anything goes!
The show is available via FM, internet and on the TuneIn Radio app (or website) - so you can listen to the show wherever you are! Find out more on the HMA Radio Show page...
Our show is now repeated on the first Sunday of each month too! Tune in at 4pm if you miss us on the Wednesday - and our past shows are now available on demand, totally free, over at Mixcloud.
Hull band Moloko featured on new limited edition LP
Local band Moloko (also known as Moloko Plus), who were active in Hull in the early 90s, are to be included on the forthcoming vinyl LP release "Small Town Scenery". Released as part of Record Collector magazine's Modern Collectibles series, the album collects thirteen "lost indie gems" from the period 1985-1995 and focuses on unsigned bands. Packaged in a gatefold sleeve, this limited edition release (only 500 copies) looks an absolute beauty, and we say a massive well done to Moloko for getting their track "Bite The Hand" (which we played on the radio show back in August) included on such a high profile LP.
The album is officially released on February 28th - you can preorder it here.
ROCK FOR RONSON - Hull City Hall, 23rd April 2016
Steve Harley's promised gig in memory of Mick Ronson takes place on April 23rd at Hull City Hall in association with GJM Promotions.
Steve will be performing with his full Cockney Rebel band, plus the AllForOne choir, with support from local starlets The Black Delta Movement. Also now confirmed are a number of special guests including ex-Bowie guitarist Earl Slick and Mick's daughter Lisa Ronson.
All proceeds from this gig will go towards a Mick Ronson Foundation to support local musicians - a fitting legacy, if ever there was one.

Hull Music Archive
Hull Music Archive is a community project which aims to create a definitive and detailed history of the music scene in Hull. We are documenting bands, artists, venues, labels, studios, publications and more. We are keen to see documents, records, CDs, memorabilia, ephemera and more (copies/scans/photos will do fine).
