Steve Lamacq’s In New Music We Trust Programme to End

The end of an era. Steve Lamacq‘s “In New Music We Trust” Radio1 programme will be broadcasting its last-ever show at its usual Monday night 21.00-22.00 later this month. You have two chances left to hear the programme – on 17 August, there will be a session by Sheffield band Crookes (presumably named after the suburb), and on 24 August, Lammo will be hosting the Strange Boys from Austin, Texas.

Being on what I consider the wrong side of the pond, in a town where radio stations on the whole are terrible, I get most of my new music news and heads-ups on new bands from British radio. And specifically, I owe Lammo a lot – he turned me on to a lot of new bands that I never would have heard or learned about otherwise. Skint and Demoralised, borne of Wakefield pubs and new Northern soul, would have never hit my ears if Steve had not chosen their “The Thrill of Thirty Seconds” as one of his “Top 60 of 2008”. There’s a reason he’s often called “the indie rock oracle”. (Bloc Party took a chance and gave him a demo in the toilet during a Franz Ferdinand gig at the ICA. Smart move.) Not to mention he’s an all-around nice chap. He never hesitates to provide a nod on air to his global legion of fans, from Leicester to London, Stockholm to Seattle, from Warsaw to my own Washington D.C. Lammo, your Monday night programme will be missed.

But all is not lost. The Colchester United stalwart who still wears Doc Martens to this day will still be spinning records on his 6music programme Mondays through Fridays at 16.00 to 19.00 and on Radio2 on Wednesday nights at 23.00 to 0.00.
