Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: UK Subs EP
Fanatics! Talk about no sleep! I have been bouncing from planes to taxies to studios on both coasts. I worked on this show for a few days on paper and then only a few hours ago was able to listen to all of it and makes sure it is up to what we will consider a passing grade.
It's Friday afternoon. I got in here a little before midnight last night. A few hours later, I was in traffic, on my way to a studio in Santa Monica to do some voiceover work. About three hours of that and back to the office to start working putting all this together.
It's nearly 1600 hrs. I just noticed and it seemed I was going to eat lunch a few hours ago but got so wrapped up in getting this together that I just looked at the clock now.
Well, ok then, I will eat later. Let's talk about all these great jams we have here.
I don't know what compelled me to start us off with this particular Misfits song but I came up with that idea on one of the many flights I have been on in the last several days. You don't have to look very far down our list to spot the first concept set of the evening. A great EP by the UK Subs. One of my favorite 7" records of all time!
Ruts, Clash and The Fall all together, a bit of a Dubbed out trio of songs, I hope you will like this grouping.
Betty Davis starts our second hour. As you can see, I can't seem to stay away from one of the two new Boris albums. I am hoping you are digging our recent Borisization of the show.
I'll fill you Fanatics in on why we have Void in our set tonight. I have great news about them and Faith, for all you Dischord fans.
I was ordered to play Nile by One of our big bosses, Jason "J-Bomb" Bentley. Luckily, I have some of their albums. Now and then, he will call me with a direct order to play certain bands, Montrose, Dokken--stuff like that. I do my best.
A little ED towards the end of the show as well as new to my ears at least, a band called Yuck are featured. I think this is a cool record.
We will finish our thin slice of time together with a great track I found on one of the Lux & Ivy downloads. It's all online and all for free download. I recommend you snag it before the man takes it down.
This is a great show. I will have some things written to plague Will "Double B" Bentley with as soon as I can get a few hours of sleep.
I guess it's a holiday this weekend. I know that some holidays require a lot of celebration. Well, do that, but please be careful and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
