The Flipside Takeover
Flipside Radio (formerly Lache FM) is a community radio station for Chester. We aim to celebrate the people, music and culture within our community. We promote local musicians, charities and community groups, as well as playing a wide range of music, from chart pop to roots reggae and everything in between. All of our presenters are volunteers.
The station has a monthly event at Telford’s Warehouse where we get to showcase local musicians and it’s always free entry.
I was asked to organise this month’s event on the 25th of August, so I’m taking it a bit out there.
First up will be Patchwork Man from Wrexham, bringing his unique blissy blend of acoustic psychedelia to proceedings.
We had him on last year and he went down a storm with his leftfield humour and engaging performance.
Our main act are Chester space rockers Civilian Zen.
Civilian Zen was formed in 2006 by Keith Hill & Mark Broster, recording two albums for the Shelter charity in 2006 & 2007, including former members of Hawkwind.
Since then they have gone on to record a number of quality releases including the magnificent Tell Lie Vision from 2014.
Civilian Zen are
Ralph Wordenweber, Mark Broster & Keith Hill.
Soundtracking the event will be the boys from popular music panel show Ear Of The Tiger so expect an eclectic mix of absolute quality to nod your head to.
And of course. Who else could host such an evening but our very own Rusty Mahone.
We’ll hopefully see you there for a fantastic night of music.
