TESTING, ONE, TWO, ONE, TWO, TESTING, TESTING

You know those moments in time that forever become etched in your brain, where something you have been frantically waiting to happen crashes through the silence and pins you to the floor like the dog you haven’t seen for ages, licking eagerly at your face, welcoming you home? You know, as profound as the moment that the person behind the bar at Download fixes you in their sight across the heaving crowd at the bar as you think you might never get that pint and says, ‘Sorry mate, I know you’ve been waiting a while, what can I get you?’

Yeah moments as significant as that?

Well strap yourself in to your favourite chair, CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW and get your ears around the PRIMORDIAL RADIO PRE-LAUNCH MUSIC STREAM. Yes that’s right, PRIMORDIAL RADIO is one step closer to flooding the airwaves with the music YOU WANT TO HEAR.

So listen up then get the fuck up and tell everyone you know to jump up and stump up even a meagre amount to ensure that PRIMORDIAL RADIO can fuck that shit up and launch.

DO IT! NOW!!!

We Are Primordial: Come Join Us

People have been wondering what the hell is going on with all the Primordial Radio stuff I keep putting out, wondering why I incessantly keep imploring anyone and everyone to get involved, to buy even just one share at just over £15 to help ensure that Primordial Radio gets the chance to show the rock and metal community, and everyone else, just what a massive shot in the arm it can be to a musical genre being increasingly chewed up and thrown to the wolves of profit and exploitation.

So, why you ask?

Here is my answer……..

Why Primordial Radio? What is it that makes me so desperate, yes desperate to see this radio station actually see the light of day? Is it having previously listened to Moose, Dews and Pete’s unique brand of rock radio and knowing instantly that what they offered was exactly what I wanted and finding that, apparently a whole army of listeners also wanted? Is it what kept me entertained for every working hour and most of my free time and got me through some pretty crappy times?. Is it wanting to return to the mentally amusing good elements of Team Rock? Or is it the thought that this is quite possibly the last chance the rock and metal community have to have a voice, a home that actually is for us and not just some business model loosely frameworked to give minimum content for maximum profit?
It’s a depressing fact that right now, despite a couple of niche radio shows, the mainstream radio networks do not offer us anything of substance, confining any pittance of scheduling to times that are kept well outside normal listening hours. Whatever market info they are being fed they are missing out on a number of critical factors, and these factors are exactly what will guarantee Primordial Radio success, should it achieve the funding it needs to launch.

  • Loyalty: we have always been outsiders, not just to the media establishments but to society in general. It’s the black leather jacket, studs and chains, bad guys image thing that is still perpetuated to this day. It is used to alienate us, separate us but what it actually does do is make us fiercely loyal to those who share our common interest, rock and metal and the myriad of genres that fall within that loose label; those who treat us as equals and not just as some cash cow who are so desperate for any scraps thrown to us that we will accept being exploited and robbed blind in the process; those who actually want to engage with us and build a home, a community that is actually for us, free of ego and hierarchy, a place we will always come back to. That, to me is what Primordial Radio is offering and in return they will always have my loyalty. It’s OUR home, it’s our ‘Friday night down the pub having a few beers, having a laugh with your mates to a great rock soundtrack in the background’ only this is any time we want it!
  • Longevity: We are going nowhere. We are like a great nomadic tribe wandering in the wilderness, followers of our own brand of religion, a music that enduringly binds us together and always will. Our needs never change much, the only transient thing in this great journey of ours is the place we get to stay for a while before we get moved on for a perceived more profitable market. I am sick of radio stations painting themselves out to be there for the audience when it is so blatantly obvious that they couldn’t give a damn about the listener. Team Rock was the closest thing to feeling part of something until its business model imploded but that feeling came from the dj’s – Moose, Dews and Pete. Primordial Radio has the foundations of everything we need, right there.
  • Passionate: Look around social media at the efforts to get Primordial Radio funded and to get it out on the airwaves and you will see how passionate we are. We so passionately believe in this because we have tasted what this can be and we want more but we want it Primordial Radio flavoured, an offering we are all creating together through a mutual passion for the music and an ethos that we all share.
  • Family: And whilst the main protagonists behind Primordial Radio may be the figureheads, and quite rightly so, cementing this all together is a family, a real, solid, dedicated, passionate, loyal, inspired family. We are a family brought together through a shared common interest standing side by side.

Come join us. We.Are.Primordial.

If you know me, follow me or even gyrate at anywhere near the same gravitational frequency as me you will not have failed to have seen or heard me reference PRIMORDIAL RADIO.

I am not going to ramble on about why I believe you need to get involved with the future of rock and metal radio, there are people farmore qualified than me who can educate you……..so, why not hear it for yourself from the main guys involved?

So here they are in the introductory video they produced for their Seedrs funding bid.

This is a rock and metal venture FOR THE COMMUNITY, BY THE COMMUNITY. IT’S Friday night in the pub with your mates ANY TIME YOU WANT IT.

PRIMORDIAL RADIO – FUND THIS!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last year we lost the incomparable entity that was the freak show of Team Rock Radio, doomed to the ethereal wasteland of wasted opportunities.

On the 8th May 2017 the rock and metal community have a chance to turn our attention from the dark days of the past and build a future that will become a beacon of hope for our community.

Former Team Rock dj’s Moose, Dewsbury and Pete Bailey, along with sound supremo Mark Hillman have been working hard behind the scenes to put together a venture that all of us have a vested interest in ensuring succeeds. And on the 8th May that opportunity explodes into life via a Seedrs funding bid, a chance for us to create the foundations of a radio station, in all the myriad of opportunities that that presents, one that YOU as much as them can call home, a place where we truly do belong, way beyond the empty rhetoric that belong held before.

This is it, truly. This is potentially last orders. The scene has gone through so many changes over the last few years and profiteering has stripped away the very heart of what we stood for and goodwill has been exploited to such an extent that rock radio has lost its way.

It is time to put us right back on track and get behind Primordial Radio in whatever way you can, even if it is just spreading the word. And please, spread this as far and wide as you can before we are lost to the nothingness that is out there.

Take a look at www.PrimordialRadio.com for more info and details of just how integral you are to this and how to be part of the future of rock radio.
