This Sunday (4th September) the Loiterers Resistance Movements monthly wander around town was recorded for Manchester Mule and Redbricks Radio.
Host Morag Rose took walkers on a ‘beer’ tour of the city. A pub crawl but without the drinking, looking at the history of drinking in the city and the different attitudes (political and social) that shape the city center and Manchester’s drinking culture.
This tour looks at the impact of alcohol on the streets, telling tales of Manchester’s lost pubs, prohibition, moral panics, class struggles, casualties, criminals, romantic liaisons, famous raconteurs and comedy encounters facilitated by booze.
From Piccadilly gardens hear the group travel down Oldham street to discuss some of the cities most famous bars. Into Ancoats to talk about class and the social history of drinking. Around the printworks to talk about commercialization, to the Cathedral gardens to talk about sanitized spaces and ironic advertising before finishing in St Annes Square.
This is show one of Antony’s African Anthems.
Sounds of Africa from the present but mostly the past hand picked by selector Antony.
This show looks mainly at Congolese Music and draws from the huge and excellent music blogs – Global Groovers and Afro Slabs.
This mix is from a Midlands isolation tank. With out the distraction of the Mancunion way meters away, I get kind of blue.
I miss the toxins. Here’s a mix to show you what I mean.
This is a recording of a creative consultation which was a product of local redbricks people teaming up with BCA landscape architects to come up with some ideas for Hulme St.
In case you didn’t know, Hulme St is going to be pedestrianised after pressure from residents including a protest – radio report here .
Check out these two new mixes from Scotty!
Tech-house/Minimal DJ among other stuff.
Also check out his own tunes here…
Redbricks Radio Launch party, which crazily happened at the Sally on the Day.
DJ’s – Comedy – Quiz
Sat 14th May – 8-10pm
Manchester City won the FA and United got the Premiership. This meant that just about everyone in the pub was fooking Steaming. Yes, they’re steaming while we’re streaming.
Many thanks to Protag for coming and recording this and streaming it live – there’s no way we would have done it in the chaos! Thanks to Steven the compare, and Rod the DJ and guest, Richard from Mule, Nes, Leonie and Billy from the Sally. Also very special thanks to the regulars of the Sally, Spider Park and friends of the Redbricks!
Redbricks Radio, the new community radio is proud to support local music, projects and campaigns. The event was transmitted live on http://redbricksradio.org.uk
10 mins report of the Forget the Royal Wedding party on Hulme St on the Redbricks Estate. This features some of the music and a lot of the people. What did people think of the music? What is the smell of Hulme Spirit?
Vox Pops and banter from ‘local characters’ – Billy, Cathy, Jenny, Mikey, Daisy, Dr Dave, Hema, Spanna, Scotty and lots more besides! I’m sorry but I lost interviews with Cae and Craig for technical reasons that I don’t understand!
The encore of the Autonomads at Hulme St – Royal Reggae party 29th April 2011 at the Redbricks.
The forget the wedding, who are the royal family event of the City, this party rocked hard with warm fuzzy edges.

Part One – Redbricks Radio – Spider Park and Birley Fields. Adele and Leonie bring us some of the history and updates on Spider Park, a neglected part on the edge of the Redbricks Estate in Manchester. Then Tamasin interviews Steven about the Manchester Metropolitan University’s plans to build a campus on Birley fields another bit of green space a stone’s throw from our estate.
Part Two – Redbricks Radio – Manchester Mule team talk about Youth Service closure, the story of a journalist who faces
deportation to Sierra Leone, more on Connexions being axed, ‘new speak’ from the council as they replace Ward Coordination with Neighbourhood management and talk of the TUC rally and parallel protest from UK Uncut happening at the same time. All of this sandwiched up with leftfield music and insights from Rod aka Dr F*wit.
Part Three – Tamasin’s adaptation of “Le Suite Francaise” by Irene Némirovsky. Némirovsky, began a planned five-novel cycle as Nazi forces overran northern France in 1940. This gripping “suite,” collecting the first two unpolished but wondrously literary sections of a work cut short, have surfaced more than six decades after her death.
Part Four – Rod’s music hour – an eclectic mix of music from the darkest, innermost reaches of the musical undergrowth.

MULE rode up to the corner of Oxford Road and Whitworth Street in Central Manchester to ask the passing public just what they thought of David Cameron’s Big Society.
This is an audio version of a video available on the Mule website –
This recording was a workshop in the form of a Radio show which happened on the 15th December 2010 at the OK Cafe, a squatted cafe space in central Manchester.
The idea was to do a skill share on popular education, widen it out to informal learning and have a bit of a reflection on what we liked and didn’t about learning.
This show was recorded at a film night at the Yard Theatre on 13th of December.
It covers the Green Zone project from Matt, Mick and Kate.
Some crazy music from Rod.
And some info about the Birley Fields from Stephen.
A take on divas of the 80s and 90s and an attempt to give them the credit they deserve from mick fuzz and anna helme.
Whilst some Divas get fame and recognition as well as millions of adoring fans, other female starlettes are doomed to be exploited and forgotten. The 90’s was surely the best and the worst of times for some of the Divas we look at in tonight’s show on Redbricks Radio.
We weep and share the ecstasy of some leading ladies.
Redbricks Estate residents take to the streets early on a Monday morning to reclaim the neighbourhood from commuters.
They transform the street into a living room with sofas, kitchen, cups of tea and send the message ‘how would you like living in a car park?’
Will and Sonia talking about Leaf St recorded in December 2009 –
There’s a lot of good experience and information here and some random banter and songs as well. Stay tuned on redbricks for the results of a Redesign of Leaf St coming soon.
October 8th from Dissident Island
While some of the crew were up visiting the fine people from Redbricks Radio we met up with some friendly Mancunians and did a show…
• We spoke with our hosts for the evening, Mule Magazine, about what they’ve been getting up to lately as well as issues surrounding alternative media in general
• Veg, from the Manchester Anarchist Bookfair, came in to give us a rundown on how this year’s event went
• There were words of enlightenment from Aidan, part of the Manchester radical history group
• Nes came in to talk to us about all that’s happening with I Bike MCR
• Finishing us off with some tunes from around the world we had our old friend Drunkin Dunkin spinning some tunes..
All this as well as the usual bollocks, Manchester banter, music, news and lots of chat about what’s been happening on the streets..
This is an interview with Indios from Amazonia who is a guest of Vicky from Arcspace. He tells us about linking up with Manchester and some of what’s happening where he is.
A ghasly Halloween show by Rodney and Kim and technician Mick ‘the Mummy’. A hellraising ride into the space between the para-abfuture and the para-abpast! – welcome to the para-abpresent.
Listen up and be afraid!!
This was one of the very early Redbricks / Random Radio recordings!!!
Music provided by Rod.
The sixties were a time a crazy revolution. And as crazy revolutionaries, Doctor Fwit and Mick Fuzz bring you the Outside Tyme Revolution show!
Your doc was joined again by Mick Fuzz (not pictured) for another 60′s psyched-out show this time extended to a mind-mangling hour and half. They called us amateurish – why surely that’s an over exaggeration…
here’s a complete track listing for OUTSIDE TYME 2
01. The Sound Apparatus – Travel Agent Man (NJ, 1969)
02. Randy & The Rest – Confusion (Birmingham AL, 1967)
03. The Dearly Beloved- Flight Thirteen (Tuscon AZ, 1967)
These are some early test recordings of Random Radio the Sister project of Redbricks Radio –
This recording isn’t even really a pilot. It was a practice for us to use the radio equipment. It turned into an hour long show where we didn’t really know what we were talking about. But the music is good. Hope you like it! Download it here :
What do you do to empower yourself on a daily basis??
It’s a question we often ask ourselves. This episode came one week after the labour party conference from Mick’s studio.
