The Alternative Show with Kurt Wilson (25/11/17)

25th November 2017
Posted by Kurt Wilson

So, what happened this week?

Well, Tyler Pittaway shot me some evil looks on his way out, primarily due to the fact that I elected to eat my sticky, spicy and (most of all) smelly quesadilla lunch in his studio instead of my own!

Tyler and I also spoke about the concept of us doing a unified Xmas show. The only question was………. “What would we call it?” The current working title is the most hipster-sounding show ever, ‘The Alternative Coffee Show’.

I think it still needs some work!

Anyway, on to more important matters. Here’s your Alternative Chart Top 10 this week:


  1. Elbow – Golden Slumbers
  2. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Holy Mountain
  3. Evanescence – Bring Me To Life
  4. Hunter & The Bear – Skin Tight
  5. Plan B – Heartbeat
  6. Nick Cave & The Bad Seed – Red Right Hand (Flood Remix) [Peaky Blinders Theme]
  7. U2 – Get Out Of Your Own Way
  8. The Killers – The Man
  9. Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars
  10. AC/DC – Thunderstruck

Moz the Monster’s furry grip on the chart continues as Elbow are once again your Alternative No.1 with their cover of The Beatles’ ‘Golden Slumbers’, otherwise known as the song from this year’s John Lewis Xmas ad.

Tune in next week to see if anyone can knock it off the top spot. ‘Til then have a fantastic week, scoop up all those black tag deals, and I’ll speak to you soon!
