Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: New Year, New Albums
Fanatics! I think we have achieved a state of mixiosity so breathtakingly good, I have no other choice than to conclude that this is going to be two of the best hours of your weekend. Of course, we love all of the music that we play but sometimes it all comes together in a way to where upon playback, you think you have tapped some force greater than yourself. And that Fanatic, is what has happened here. Behold this cornucopia of cool that awaits you below!
Again, we are starting a show with some Keiji Haino. I think it's a great room clearing device. He separates the wheat from the chaff quite well. He is, thankfully, a very prolific art terrorist. I have heard a lot of his work but have a lot of his collaborative efforts for last and they have proven to be excellent as his solo stuff as well as with his band Fushitsusha.
Before we go too far, let's mention just how much ass is being kicked by the In The Red label right now. Releases are fairly flying out the door of this place like there is no tomorrow and it's all rockin. The label has re-released a Ty Segall/Michael Cronin album that we will be visiting briefly tonight called Reverse Shark Attack. I love this album and that it is easily available again is such a great thing.
I am trying to take advantage of all the new records that have come in over the last several weeks while I was on tour. I am sifting away but am making progress and bringing it to you as best I can. Our first hour shakes rattles and rolls pretty well and I hope you like it.
In hour two we change things up just a bit. Some new UV Race, again from your do good pals at In the Red and some Fang Wizard from the Teenbeat label. More Lamps and some demo Le Butcherettes. Perhaps some of you have checked out Terri Gender Bender / Mars Volta members new project Bosnian Rainbows. On their site, they say there is an album that will come out in early in 2013, hopefully, that's now-ish. Young Will Bentley saw them and said they were really cool. I am not surprised. I hope I get to see them sooner than later. We will get their music on our show as soon as we can.
