Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: World Debut of J Mascis/Heavy Blanket Album
Fanatics! Hello from beautiful Sydney, Australia. I am a few hours away from another show here. I have been finding some great records here that will find themselves in our upcoming shows over the summer. I think you're going to like what we will be laying on you in the weeks and months upcoming!
In our first hour, we will be rocking some serious guitar heavy hitters. If you look down the list, it's all heavy weight all the way through but you will notice something conceptual in the second part of our show.
Now, in tonight's second hour, we have a very special record we will be playing for your in its entirety. A side project of our good pal J Mascis called Heavy Blanket will be releasing their first and perhaps only album on May 8. Visit J Mascis' site for more information.
I asked the record company releasing the album, Outer Battery, so we could play it all the way through before its release. They were cool about it and so tonight, we debut this rockin, six track album!!! Go to Outer Battery for more information.
Here is a brief record company write up of the release information:
J Mascis rounds up a couple partners-in-crime from his adolescence with an eye - and ear - towards shredding harder, wailing louder, and generally melting faces even more brutally than ever before. With art from Savage Pencil, Heavy Blanket's debut release is available on CD, 1000 copies on white vinyl, and an extremely limited release of just 200 copies on purple vinyl!
So, Fanatic, you get to hear this one week before release. Pretty cool!
We will finish off the second hour with a great Dinosaur Jr. track where J really pours it on.
Get ready to go back to the Stone Age and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
