Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: Brand New Track from The Mark of Cain
KCRW Broadcast #143 for Saturday, December 3, 2011
Fanatics! What a week. Finally. We have arrived at our meeting place, Saturday night, on the radio all together at 89.9 FM KCRW. As always, great to be back with you. Tonight, what can I say, it's another collection of relentless brilliance. I have been listening down to all of these tracks this week and I think we are really onto something here!
Brand new The Mark Of Cain track from their forthcoming new album. I got a file of the tracks sent to me and we were cleared for airplay. Sounds good to me. I was told that on one of my few days off on next year's tour, I will be in one of their videos when I am in their native Australia. We roll out another new Fall track as well. I looked it up and it seems that the album is available in the UK but I am not seeing a listing for its domestic release as yet. Tonight, more Melt-Banana greatness from their mind blowing Charlie album.
It took me awhile but I finally found my Rubén González record. I wish I had it at the ready for our Cuban-flavored show two weeks ago. Amazing musician. I got to see him place in 1997 while in London.
Cartwheels To The Record Store Dept.: Two great records out that I wanted to bring to your attention. First is the new Miles Davis 3CD/DVD set called Live In Europe 1967: The Bootleg Series Vol. 1. This is the Shorter/Hancock/Williams/Carter line up. Not up for debate -- one of the most powerful groupings of musicians ever assembled. You get multiple live takes of one of my favorite Wayne Shorter compositions, Footprints. His solo version can be found on his Adam's Apple album on Blue Note and a later version on the Miles Davis album Miles Smiles. This is a great addition to the Miles Davis catalog and the fact that there is a "Vol. 1" at the end of the title, well, that just gives us more to look forward to. The other monster release is the Can's 40th Anniversary Tago Mago 2CD remaster. First off, what an album. With the new version, you get an additional live disc with "Mushroom," "Spoon" and "Halleluwah" all recorded in 1972.
I am sure you noticed that we are playing a track from each release tonight. I hope you dig the music. The Can track is very long, very involved and quite incredible.
Fanatics, it's a nonstop cavalcade of hits. A cornucopia of delights. All for you.
Never forget that the true Heavyweight Champion of Rock is Iggy Pop and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
