Danish Radio P6 "Loves Muse"

Recommended Posts

Today (June 6) the Danish radio station P6 builded up to the release of Drones and the band's coming show at Roskilde Festival. The programme "P6 Loves …" is about nerding one specific band that is current with a new album, will perform in Denmark shortly, having an anniversary etc. Previous bands that it has been about are Nirvana, Kraftwerk and Rolling Stones e.g.

It has a regular host and he then invites an expert of the given band to assist. This time with Muse, it was a journalist who has met the band two times and followed them since 1999.

 

+ The programme played six hours of Muse's music exclusively from the biggest hits to some of the earliest b-sides. Even Spiral Static was played.

+ According to the programme, it had the radio world premiere of Drones (the song).

+ There were very good analyses of Matt's writing and texts. Focus on the glory, greatness and apocalypse themes.

+ Absolution was reviewed for an hour with stories about each track.

+ Phone interview with Rich Costey (the producer of Absolution and BH&R). He told a lot of technical things and anecdotes about Absolution.

+ The listeners sent in their top three songs to make a top 10, which was played the last hour from bottom to top. 288 people sent in and the results were:

 

  1. Plug In Baby
  2. Hysteria
  3. Knights Of Cydonia
  4. Starlight
  5. Supermassive Black Hole
  6. Citizen Erased
  7. Stockholm Syndrome
  8. Time Is Running Out
  9. New Born
  10. Uprising

I predicted Hysteria, Supermassive, Starlight and Uprising to be the top.

 

No Madness surprised me though.

Any radio station that plays Citizen Erased and then follows it up with Stockholm Syndrome gets kudos from me.

 

Edit - Just realised it was in reverse order. But still. I can't even imagine Spiral Static on radio, haha! Cool though.
