I was in a bar up London recently. I got chatting a guy and he asked me where I was from? When I told him Bristol he responded with ”You’ve got a great music scene down there. I love Massive Attack.” I asked him what other artist they liked from Bristol and he listed off Roni Size and Portishead. This is a common response when I tell people I’m from Bristol.
Now I also love Massive, Roni Size and Portishead. But if thats all you know of Bristolian Music you’re missing out on some diamonds.
So I thought I’d do a Top 10 Bristol Artists. This isn’t a list of highest record sales, just some of my favourites.
Also you can listen to the From Bristol With Love back catalogue

Hows things been? I’m sure you’ve all been experiencing a huge gap in your lives since From Bristol With Love has been off the airwaves. Don’t worry babes. We’ve got just the medicine.
In May we will be doing an Election Special for the Local and Euros. Letting you know who’s standing, what we think of their politics and more importantly hair cuts (hopefully we’ll see more of the legend that is Bill Payne).
In July there’s St Paul’s Festival which is always a blinder. We had a great time last year. I was meant to do some interview but ended up making loads of new best friends and dancing all night. Maybe I put Dick in charge of that this year. Festival is on Saturday 5th July and FREE!
And if you’re a big fan of the show you need to get yourself down to OutCider Festival. To start with tickets are well cheap. The Super Earlybird is £29 per person, camping included. So go buy them now while they are still available. It takes place on Fernhill Farm, Somerset. Which is only about 40mins outside of Bristol. The parking is right next to the camping, so there’s no Glastonbury mega walk.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Keep your eyes peeled for our Election show in May and if you cant wait till then you can listen to the From Bristol With Love back catolog on mixcloud.

Dick Gherkin and Durston Fletcher will be out of the FBWL office from 1/10/13 to 30/11/13. They will produce a show when they return, so stop banging on about it.
If you need to contact them, you simply can’t: they will be at the International University of Radio Presenters in Strasbourg. Not as students. No. As TEACHERS.
Dick will be taking up the position of Professor Emeritus of Audio Flow Theory and will present his latest paper “Spinning it Out & Bringing it Back in again: Dialectic Dynamics in Audio Synapse Orientation.” He has asked for his fee to be paid in Monster Munch.
Durston will be offering one-to-one coaching to students who have shown potential in Double Degree Level DJ Dopeness and General Skills that Pay Bills. He will also be offering his opinions on a wide range of diverse subjects, and offering out anyone who disagrees with those opinions.
Note to trained medical personnel: if any listeners begin to exhibit withdrawl symptoms, 46 hours of back catalogue is available here. Administer in controlled doses.
