Welcome this time around to Wit, one of Southsea’s finest musical exports, when he’s not making lovely music for others, he’s listening to a lot. He also writes a great blog which I’ve tuned into more than a couple of times. Have a look HERE, it’s really rather good. It’s due to reading about his current flavours that I thought he’d put together a great playlist and thankfully, I wasn’t wrong. So, without any further ado, I’ll leave you with Wit.
“Hello there. My name is Christopher George Whitear. Some people know me as Wit. I front local misery-weirdy-indie-pop numpties The B of the Bang and local noisy-weirdy-shouty-grunge-pop numpties Analogue Manilow. As well as this, I occasionally dabble with a bit of dour acoustic nonsense on my tod from time to time.
All this numptying takes up a lot of my time as you can well imagine BUT, along with music, my other big passion is travel…of which I like to do as much as possible. Not easy when you’re a skint musician but there we go.
With this in mind, I’ve decided on the theme of cities and towns from around the world to link together my playlist. Some of them I have visited, most I have not. I could have included a whole load more to be honest but I think this gives a fairly accurate representation of my musical tastes at this exact moment in time. It would probably be completely different if I chose again tomorrow. I’m ever so fickle.”
