Lilies on Mars interview


This week we meet duo Lilies on Mars in an East London pub. The girls are over here from Italy playing some shows and we’re loving their new single Dream of Bees (especially the Julia Kent remix which gets a spin too).

We also dig into our session archive and play one from San Francisco’s Jessica Pratt who recently graced Simon Raymonde‘s show with her presence. There’s also music from Bristol’s Rachael Dadd and London rockers The Drink… listen again here!

Latest show listen again with The Anchoress


Who is THIS?

Well, this is a fabulous promo shot of The Anchoress. You might remember piano chanteuse and Lady Gaga cover queen Catherine AD (she covered Telephone and transformed it), well she’s revamped her image and her sound and relaunched as The Anchoress. It’s pop-tastic and we love it.

This week we’re also featuring some of Simon Raymonde’s gorgeous session tracks with Sumie (Yukimi from Little Dragon’s sister) and there’s a new single from the inimitable gypsy ska crowd Gabby Young And Other Animals.

Listen again here!

Skinny Girl Diet in session


I'm in the gang! with Skinny Girl Diet
Recent guests on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio include scrappy teen grunge rockers Skinny Girl Diet. The London trio are blazing a trail on the live circuit already although not one is yet to hit twenty. With fans including John Kennedy and Everett True they’re creating quite the buzz with their grungy punk rock. We talk fad diets, girl gangs and... grunge!

Mad About the Boy - BBC Radio 4

Mad About the Boy is a programme for BBC Radio 4 presented by Jude Rogers and Ruth Barnes, produced by Falling Tree Productions. The thesis was this: obsessive teen girl fan culture is given a bad rap in the press and in society as a whole, going back generations. We look at the flip side, we celebrate it and conclude that it's a vital rite of passage for young women as they reach puberty. With contributions from author and David Cassidy fan Allison Pearson, One Direction songwriter Fiona Bevan, One Direction fans, E17's Tony Mortimer and Jude's mother-in-law and Beatlemaniac Lillian Adams.

Jessica Pratt in session


As usual Simon Raymonde has chosen another blinder of a session for his show this week. San Francisco's Jessica Pratt popped in and played some simple acoustic tracks. She's a new favourite of The Other Woman and we shall be playing these on the show over the next few weeks!
