If you caught Jools Holland on Friday you will have seen Ed Sheeran pining for Top Of The Pops. A strange person to be championing for its return because, well, you know, the majority of the top 20 is him.
As it stands, Jools Holland remains the only influential music TV programme out there. The Guardian recently posted an article saying it was “tedious and its host excruciating.” It’s difficult for us to agree with that, though, as music fans, because they continually book acts that excite us, even if they’re a bit off the mark sometimes.
Moreover, the format is familiar in a good way, like The Simpsons at 6pm, or a double bill of Fresh Prince. As for Holland, bless him, he’s switched on even after years and years in the game. The programme is ingrained into our culture, and it’s one institution not worth worrying about wishing a demise on.
But, that’s not to say we can continue to allow Holland to have the monopoly on the box. Oh no, we do need more music television; Sheeran is right in that respect. But should it be Top Of The Pops? We don’t think so. Much preferred are the indie promoters This Feeling – the London promoters who against all the odds are keeping rock n roll alive – and they have just announced they’re putting on their own tv show in association with Red Stripe.
This Feeling is the brainchild of Mikey Jonns who’s spent the last 10 years creating the ultimate rock n roll club night with live bands. This new venture will see the passion and good taste he’s applied to his club nights, and have the balance of featuring the huge bands and those on the rise.
So what are the finer details? Well, it’s called Red Stripe presents: This Feeling TV’ will be hosted by Radio X presenter and music lover Gordon Smart and produced by Dry Lunch, founded by former Soccer AM producer Robbie Knox. The show has also already received backing from the likes of Gallagher and 2016 standout breakthrough act, Blossoms.
Currently it’s an online thing with the first four 20 minute shows being aired over the course of the year online on the programme’s Youtube page – we will post full programme details as they emerge.
The chances are, though, with the concept being so strong and the interest already there that it will be picked up by a major station within weeks of its launch. The shows will comprise of a range of segments; including: interview features with a mixture of big-hitters and future stars of the scene, live performances from guests, and a host of other off-the- wall features too that it’s going to be picked up by a major station within weeks of its launch.
Mikey Jonns, founder of This Feeling, says: “It’s an absolute travesty, bar Jools Holland, there’s no music show on our screens. Well, that’s about change; please welcome This Feeling TV, bringing musical mayhem and magic back to a screen near you soon…”
There are limited tickets for each show, for music lovers to be a part of the audience and watch indie acts, new and old, do their thing on stage and on the sofa. The first opportunity is this Thursday 27 April as they’re filming the first episode and having the afterparty at Nambucca.

UK BASED BANDS
Take the example of bands such as Evile who started off by gracing the Unsigned stage only to go on to sign a major recording deal, countless worldwide tours and gracing the Bloodstock main stage in 2012 and 2014. Add that to bands such as Bloodshot Dawn, Metaprism and many others who have used the Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses as a springboard to continued growth and industry recognition.
There are so many shining examples of British Metal bands with a great future – Could that be your band or a band from your venue?
Even if bands don’t win their respective finals the fact is the entire campaign and regional finals build bands profile, fan base and expertise in performance. But for those who are chosen – Quite simply the opportunity for a breakthrough act to play at Bloodstock in front of thousands and network with the industry is second to none.
Should a band manage to play in 2016 then they also stand the chance of playing Metaldays (Slovenia) and soon we will be announcing further competing festivals within Europe. In real terms Metaldays stand alongside Bloodstock as the major independent festivals and will again give the overall winning band a major in road to success in the bigger market.
At Bloodstock itself the bands will be given a 30-minute performance slot and offered the best backline and technical support at hand. Further to this we also offer the following…
30 minute performance slot on the ‘Hobgoblin Newblood Stage’.
Full access passes for all bands for the entire weekend.
Full media opportunity with bands having access to all festival media correspondence – interviews, reviews and photos a plenty plus the chance to network with industry representatives.
The chance to open the ‘Sophie Lancaster Stage’ the following year – playing on the opening night to a captive audience of thousands. This stage is the only stage open on the opening night!!!
The chance to play at Slovenia’s major metal fest Metaldays – quite possibly one of the most picturesque festivals on the circuit. http://www.metaldays.net
