About On Record: Live! Friendly Fire
Broadcaster Satnam Rana and Radio Journalist Adrian Goldberg present twenty-two conversations with Birmingham musicians, promoters, managers, venue owners and entrepreneurs who have all contributed to local, national, and international music culture. Join us and our special guests for conversations about their lives in music, their connections to the city, and how Birmingham has inspired or influenced them, personally and musically.
Selected dates also feature free live performances from the artists appearing On Record. The first of its kind, On Record is a multi-artist, multi-genre concept album forming a sonic love letter to the city of Birmingham. Produced as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, the eleven-track album will be available on a limited vinyl release and across all streaming platforms.
Composed of an international line-up of musicians, the Friendly Fire sound comfortably juggles traditional roots, dancehall and one drop rhythms, and they’ve become an institution on the Birmingham Reggae Scene. In this conversation, we find out about their love for Birmingham and what inspires their music and lively performances.
Having supported a host of artists from Dawn Penn to the late Michael Prophet and released music on their own Friendly Fire Music label, the band continue to be one of the most active live reggae and dancehall outfits in Birmingham, on stage and in the studio. Friendly Fire have attracted a strong fan base through their fiery festival performances on some of the best stages on the national circuit.
