wtng 89.9 fm: solid bronze (LP, £17.25)label: The Numero Group
Limited 500 copies. In the spirit of the Great Radio Comp, we present WTNG 89.9 FM - Solid Bronze, in tribute to 11 would-be chart-climbers that scaled only their given citys broadcast tower and fell. Here are working artists who deserve acknowledgement for their workingclass commitment. None of them "made it," but they believed-and so will you-in their one great song, that single shining moment in which everything came together and even those who owned the airwaves had to stop...and listen. These shouts into the void inspired momentary dreams of the big show, sold out in hours by a 15,000-seaters box office, and a single pair of tickets left, awarded only to the 89th caller. Phone lines remain open.
