Music From Memory’s head honcho Jamie Tiller, is the selector you want captaining your ship when sailing head first along the waves of musical obscurity. Over the past couple of years, he has built up a reputation for his uncanny ability to pluck oddball strains of out-there jams from past and present, and mould it into deviant party music. This Saturday, Jamie plays for No Bad Days, joining hosts Hollick and Gabriel and a live set from Whities’s own pop auteur, Reckonwrong.
Here, we put his expansive knowledge of weirdo-wave, pop-not-pop and dance floor exotica to the test and ask him to put a track to a series of given situations. No Filler. All Tiller.
