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.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul is joined in the studio by two musicians, Glen Alfred and Jeff Anello of The Anello. Both will be talking about writing songs, performing in Hong Kong and further afield, and of course their musical influences. They’ll also be picking a few tracks, both of their own and some of their favourites by other artists. Glen will be on air from 11 with Jeff joining Paul from 11-1.
As ever, Paul will also be playing all the week’s best new music. It’s a quieter week for new stuff as we enter December and Christmas looms, but there’s still plenty of new tracks out there with new releases from Bombay Bicycle Club, Tuxedo and The Weekend. There’ll also be an album of the week, and a look at a very exciting Factory Records box set.
On top of all that there is of course the usual nonsense too, including (hopefully decent) biscuits! Tune in on Sunday morning from 9.30 to 1pm.
There’s a smörgåsbord of music old and new on the Sunday Escape this week, as Paul works his way through the best new releases including tracks from Låpsley, Grace Carter, BADBADNOTGOOD, Caribou and Tame Impala. There’s also a cool looking singles box set from The Beatles just in time for Christmas as well as a new album of the week.
Joining Paul in the studio at 11 is Vince Siu from board game specialists Press Start, who will be talking about their new venture Press Start Academy, which is their move to change education through play and games, encouraging learning and development through play. Given that most of Paul’s education came from playing video games Vince will be showing where Paul went wrong and how learning through games is effective.
On top of all that there’s all the usual nonsense, maybe (just maybe) a Christmas song, and of course biscuits! We have it on authority that this week the biscuits will not poison Paul, so that's something to look forward to... Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul celebrates the release of an astonishing number of eagerly awaited albums, in particular The Return from rapper Sampa The Great, which is album of the week, as well as new albums from Metronomy, Alex Cameron, Charli XCX, The Lumineers, Pixies, (Sandy) Alex G and more! There’s also all the best other newly released songs from the week, with highlights from Wrabel, Green Day, The Knocks, FKA Twigs, Bruno Major and The Heavy. If there’s enough time, Paul will play some of the older stuff that’s been hitting the turntable at Pop Fugitive HQ.
There’s also some sad news however, as songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston passed away this week. Paul will play a few tracks from him and those influenced by him, and look at the incredible influence he had on independent music.
On top of all that there’s a look at a seven-inch box set from Slade, another cover version from Bryan Ferry that nobody wanted, and of course biscuits (which actually look decent this week). Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
