tpsls14 - Spotlight on Amplifico


Band of the hour, Amplifico, are in the tartanpodcast's spotlight this time.

Following hot on the heels of their segment on The World I'm pleased to bring you their spotlight show.

The band recorded their part over a month ago, so it's clear that when they say 'just the other day Clark Boyd' contacted them, this was in fact a few weeks past.

    Songs featured;
  • 10p Mix
  • All Your Sins
  • Come Down
  • Real Low
  • Flutter
  • Like a Magnet
  • Homemade Hurricanes
  • Spitting Out Benchmarks
  • 10p Mix

is it just me? The link doesn't seem to work, and it's not showing up when I refresh the podcasts page on my iTunes.

The link should work. As for iTunes, it does sometimes take a while to appear. Double check you're subscribed to the correct feed -

This was a great show Mark, I thought the lead singer did a great job when she guest hosted your show also. This is a great band, and you did a great job with the show.

Another great job. They are a great band. I'm hoping they make it over to Canada someday so I can catch them in person.

The link's broken for me as well, looks like it links to ""
If you remove the "%20target=%22_blank%22" off the end it works fine, is it missing an end quote in the tag?

That should be it fixed.

Thanks for the heads up.

Can I recommend that everyone use iTunes or the like to subscribe to the podcast as it takes this element of downloading directly from the site - which is slow - out of it?

the tartanpodcast listeners are probably sick of amplifico now! Mark you are a star in helping to spread the word. What a cracking few days.

With help from mark and tane, amplifico now have their very own podcast, the first (very chilled) show went online tonight: our feed is

Mark, just got word from kt's record co. today. 3 days recording it is in skye, and for definite it ain't when you and family are in skye! Shame, i could have sneaked you in i am sure :-) Very exciting. I wish i had a wad of cash to buy new clothes and get a haircut though! Next thing we'll be creating a Make a Donation button on our site to contribute towards Donna's fashion crisis cause ;-)

I really enjoy these "in depth" spotlight shows. Amplifico are a very different band, and listening to them can be quite challenging as there is so much going on that is not as others do it. It was interesting to gain an insight into how they go about it.

The show was well put together, too.
