Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitive) is plotting to make his Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join him every Sunday on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in music, with plenty of new records including tracks from his album of the week, as well as interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio plus all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
IIt’s a packed show on this week’s Sunday Escape. We've got loads of live music news, following the first announcement of some of the artists playing at this year’s Clockenflap festival. Paul will be playing tracks from some of the line-up, as well as talking about who and what he’s most excited about seeing. On the subject of festivals, the week ahead also marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Woodstock Festival, which took place on 15-18 August 1969, and the date is being marked with the release of a series of box sets (including a 10 LP and a 38 CD one). Paul will play a few live tracks from Woodstock, and talk about why attempts to replicate the festival have so far failed.
In the final hour, music promoter Oliver Breit will be coming into the studio to talk about the four upcoming punk gigs he’s organised, featuring The Damned, Cockney Rejects, From The Jam and, UK Subs.
In addition to all that, there will of course be all the best in new music, an album of the week from Chali 2na and Krafty Kuts, and all the usual nonsense including...biscuits! Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul Haswell is joined by Paul Thompson of ska band The Red Stripes to talk about this year’s Hong Kong International Reggae Ska Festival, which takes place on Saturday 24th August at Southorn Stadium. The event features Keith and Tex from Jamaica, Roddy Radiation of The Specials, The Ska Flames from Japan and Skaraoke from Taiwan, among many others. Paul T will talk about the new venue and bringing over such legendary performers. Of course he'll also be picking a load of reggae and ska tunes. Inevitably Paul H will tell his awful Bob Marley biscuit joke again.
There’s also all the best of this week’s new music, with long awaited albums from Sleater Kinney, Frank Turner, Shura and Ride, one of which may well be album of the week, plus new tracks from Belle and Sebastian, Anna of the North, Charli XCX and Death Cab For Cutie amongst others, plus a few things which may have slipped under your radar.
On top of all that there’s all the usual nonsense you’ve come to expect, plus biscuits! Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm.
