TOW on 6 Music - Linda Mirada & Robot's In Disguise

Every week TOW plays two songs for the brilliant Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 Music Introducing show... here are our picks from this week's show:

TOW has to thank Francisco Javier for emailing over some fantastic new artists hailing from his home country of Spain. Linda Mirada was one of them, she's from Madrid and was doing the hazy, shoegaze thing way before the latest wave from the US west coast! And DIG that funky bass line... Label Discoteca Oceano will release a remixes EP soon, which will include a remix by Ruby Sun’s Ryan McPhun. 

In her email to TOW, RID's Sue Denim assures us there's new material imminent - so we thought we'd play Wake Up on 6 Music to remind us all why we loved them the first time around. You might recognise them from The Mighty Boosh or heard one of their tracks on Ugly Betty. It seems though that a sharp image, catchy, cheeky, well-crafted electro-pop tunes wasn't enough to nab them much mainstream radio play. Let's hope album number 4 sends them stratospheric as they promise it to be 'just as exhilarating and zealous as ever!' Bring it on...
