Fanatics! Below, you will see what we have prepared for your hopeful enjoyment. I will be back from location, and we will go for our first live Sunday show.
As some of you know, I have been out on the east coast, working on some television stuff for the last several weeks. I must say, I look forward to being back on the air with you all live.
Due to where I have been and what I have been doing, I was unable to see any of the Boris shows in D.C. and L.A. I got a letter from a Fanatic in San Francisco who said they were awesome up there. I hope that any of you who wanted to got a chance to see them play. We can get into some of those re-releases soon, perhaps next week.
I am sure you heard about the passing of Ray Manzerek. I was lucky to have met the man many times over the years, starting in 1983. He was always very cool to me. We will roll a little Doors on our show to salute this great musician.
Tonight, we will play one of those cool late period United Artists-era Buzzcocks singles. I think we have listened to these before, but I thought playing both songs would be the right thing to do.
In hour two, we start it off with some more of Mr. Hendrix. This time, he's jamming with Larry Young. I don't know anything about this session but it's really cool and I thought you all would dig it.
One of my favorite records on the mighty Dischord label is the self-titled Warmers album; tonight we rock a track from it. If any of you have not checked out the incredible Fugazi live download site, you should. Ian has been adding shows every week. I was at Dischord a few weeks ago and he played me an encore from a show in Delaware, 1995. I asked if we could have the track for our show and he sent it to me. We will roll that one next week, it's great.
New VUM and some Coltrane to end the night. It's the Sunday night graveyard. Welcome, Fanatic, welcome.
I will be doing a book signing for Before the Chop at Mr. Musichead on Sunset Blvd. on May 31st. If you are around and feel so inclined, drop on by.
Grab a shovel, fall in and STAY FANATIC!!!
