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.
Paul’s on his own in the studio this week, which gives him a chance to catch up on all the new music for the last few weeks, as well as brand new records from Bishop Briggs, Newcastle folk singer Richard Dawson, Cigarettes After Sex, Caribou, The Allah Las and Green Day (the latter of which have just announced a show in Hong Kong.
There’ll be an album of the week of course, plus Paul’s been doing his best impression of Phileas Fogg this week so he’ll be talking about that. There’ll also be a more serious look at the impact that events in Hong Kong are having on local events and businesses, plus a definitely not serious look at some dubious looking biscuits. Last but by no means least there’s a look at Sega’s new retro mini console the Genesis (or Megadrive) Mini.
There’ll also be all the usual nonsense too, with whatever Paul has been listening to plus whatever comes into his head at the time. Tune in from 9.30 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!
