Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitive) is plotting to make his Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join him every Sunday on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in music, with plenty of new records including tracks from his album of the week, as well as interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio plus all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul celebrates the release of an astonishing number of eagerly awaited albums, in particular The Return from rapper Sampa The Great, which is album of the week, as well as new albums from Metronomy, Alex Cameron, Charli XCX, The Lumineers, Pixies, (Sandy) Alex G and more! There’s also all the best other newly released songs from the week, with highlights from Wrabel, Green Day, The Knocks, FKA Twigs, Bruno Major and The Heavy. If there’s enough time, Paul will play some of the older stuff that’s been hitting the turntable at Pop Fugitive HQ.
There’s also some sad news however, as songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston passed away this week. Paul will play a few tracks from him and those influenced by him, and look at the incredible influence he had on independent music.
On top of all that there’s a look at a seven-inch box set from Slade, another cover version from Bryan Ferry that nobody wanted, and of course biscuits (which actually look decent this week). Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
This Sunday the Pop Fugitives will be celebrating the arrival of the Year of the Earth Pig with some specially selected possibly tenuously themed tunes and slightly more specially selected biscuits.
They'll also be giving their thoughts on the remake of Suspiria, which is finally on release here in Hong Kong. Possibly more of a homage than strictly a remake, it tells the tale of a new student at a dance academy, an unexplained disappearance and a witches coven. It also features a soundtrack composed by Radiohead's Thom Yorke.
Paul has been playing Ace Combat 7, a combat flight action game. Carolyn suspects the biggest challenge will be whether he can land his plane successfully after completing a mission!
Plus, they'll be rounding up all of the best new releases, picking an album of the week and digging up a few classics to play!
