Fanatics! Happy new year to all ya'll! So glad to be heading into a new year with you, here at KCRW, home of the hits! Tonight, we break free of our Bowie thang that we had been doing for the last five weeks. That was a bit intense, wasn't it? I am still getting mail about it, thanks for listening.
If you take a brief glance at the songs below, you will see that we are back to our all over the place mix that includes some not so easy to locate tracks as well as some new artists added to our ever more populated roster.
Check our Fall track tonight, Fanatic! It's the A-side of the band's Record Store Day single from last year. Good song for the current Fall.
A great track we have for you tonight is by Dusty Skull, a band on Dave Sweetapple's label Outer Battery. It's a single and to get it on the show, I needed a digital version, so I wrote Dave and he hooked us up and we will rock this thing. Recently, I got some records from a man named Hayes who runs a label called Perennial out of Olympia, WA. Some cool stuff he's got going. One of the records, I think it may be out of print at this point or at least for now, is from a band called Broken Water. I really liked this EP that the label re-issued recently. We will get into a track from it tonight.
As far as I know, we have not played any Undersmile yet. Cool band. As far as I know, at least two albums and two songs on a split EP, which I have not heard yet. I think it was a fanatic out of the UK who gave me the heads up on the band, very cool.
You are perhaps familiar with Kuodede, the excellent musician, who we have played on our show before. I met him years ago at the Desert Festival in Mali. Great guy and an amazing player. I am so glad to have met and to have seen him play. In October of last year, he was in a car accident and killed. I found this out when I was in Chicago last November. He was very young and no doubt had some great music ahead of him. He had family; it is an awful loss.
So, Fanatic, it's a new year. What shall we get done? I think we should push ourselves out further and further as the Sonic Jihad goes on. Last year, I think we covered a lot of ground. It is up to myself, Engineer X and the Young Will Bentley to keep this thing interesting and challenging and I think we will realize the objective. We have a lot more of this cool music from Finland to get into, there is so much of it.
Also, there is new Nick Cave, Marnie Stern and live Miles Davis albums slated for release this year, soon, too. We will get into all of that as soon as we are given the green light. Be looking for Craig Leon's great album Nommos is getting re-issued on Superior Viaduct. This is a very cool record by the man who produced the first Suicide album. An original will make you bleed but the re-issue will treat you nice. We have played something from it before but we'll get into that one for sure.
I have been digging this new Miles thing big time. I think it comes out at the end of January. It's that road band he had for awhile. Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette. Some of you Fanatics have some of these recordings on bootleg and they sound ok but the official release sounds better. This is one smokin' release. Miles fanatics, get ready! We will get into this one as soon as Sony gives me the green light.
