Andrew Marlin and Emily Franz make up the duo of Mandolin Orange. THey met in Chapel Hill about a year ago and have been playing non-stop ever since. Emily grew up in Chapel Hill and has been playing fiddle in Bluegrass bands since she was 14. Andrew loves to write original songs and pick acoustic guitar. Mandolin Orange combines original songs in a folk or swing vein along with covers of classic bluegrass and early country music favorites...

I promised myself I wouldn't write any sort of complaint about this. I even promised myself I wouldn't read it. The mere thought of it infuriates me. But I have little discipline about these things, along a never-ending compulsion to make the rounds of my most visited websites. It was inevitable. Thus, this morning, I read Pitchfork's Top 500 songs of the decade list. I hated every moment of it...
Picture yourself in a boat on a river that leads from 1967's jolly wonderland of English Psychedelia right up to the paisley lollipop of 1985's "25 O'Clock" by the Dukes of Stratosphear. I will play an upsy-daisy assortment of classic English 60s psych that directly influenced the Dukes of Stratosphear (XTC's secret side-project), and a healthy bit of the Dukes as well!
And if that ain't enough, continue further up selfsame river to 2 hours of Robby's favourite XTC songs on WXDU's "Mystery Show" immediately thereafter.
9pm-Midnight EDT Sunday August 23rd, 2009!
Listening to the grass grow,
