Fanatics! Here we go again with yet another reason why music is one of the best things ever. It's a tremendous two hours of tunes.
This new Scott Walker album Bish Bosch is blowing my mind. He's amazing anyway but Bish Bosch is all kinds of out there. It's a hard one to suggest to anyone as it's not all that enjoyable as much as it is an amazing thing to behold. It's not a happy place record but it is sho nuff some genius work. This one on LP is incredible.
More new VUM. The single is out and here is how to get a copy. There is even more good news from the VUM camp. They are working on new songs. I have one of them and it's great. We will get to it soon. Perhaps we get an album out of the deal this year.
Some good albums have been coming in lately and tonight's show is full of new jams. Goner Records just sent me two cool releases by the Barbaras and Ex-Cult. We rock them both tonight. New old Ty Segall with the Traditional Fools release and brand new, the soundtrack for the West Memphis Three documentary West Of Memphis. Tonight we listen to track one of the album which is me reading a letter that Damien Echols sent me from Death Row many years ago. The music you will hear is Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. That's right! I can now wander into traffic.
Nico's amazing album The End has been re-mastered and re-released with a second CD of extra tracks. So worth it. First off, the mastering is excellent and the other CD is a bunch of Peel Sessions she did that as far as I know, have never been released. They sound amazing as well. Tonight, we get into one of those Peel tracks.
Stop everything! You gotta check out the 4CD Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers L.A.M.F. box set! I had mine on advance order and it just came in. You get the Lost '77 Mixes, the original LP mix, the album demos, which totally rip and then a whole CD of alt. mixes that I have not had the chance to listen to yet. This one is good to go! Some of you Fanatics have the LP version of the demos on Vinyl Lovers, I think. It's not all that hard to find but this release has it all in one box. Tonight, we get at the demo version of "Chinese Rocks."
