Fanatics! We Think This Is the Right Show for a Sunday
RADIO BROADCAST #218
Fanatics! I don't know why I keep thinking that each show we do is the best one yet, but I almost always do. This is an amazing line up of songs.
I know we have played the Prehensile Monkeytailed Skink track so many times on our show but I can't get past the vocal, it is amazing to me and so, we have to get into it one more time.
The Wire track is dedicated to Engineer X and the Young Will Bentley and myself. It's great track anyway but tonight, it's for the Big Three.
More Lightning Bolt, a great track, much different than last week's.
If you notice, we have the next Buzzcocks United Artists single in our first hour. We have one more to go in our study of the last moments of the band during their UA period. Great music that never gets old.
The Jooklo Duo track: Sax player Virginia Genta absolutely wreaks havoc! Mayhem, even! SO ripping!
I think you will like our Cheech & Chong into Sleep pairing. Seemed like the way to go to bludgeon hour one into submission.
Hour two get interesting with all the new stuff we are bringing to you. New Fall, Kid Congo, Oblivians and UV Race. The last three kindly sent to us by Larry at In The Red records. I don't think any of these are out yet, so we thank Larry for giving us the green light to play them for you. In the Red is a great label, ass you know, we are big supporters here on our show.
Engineer X submits the excellent Gilberto Gil track tonight. Way down at the bottom of the show, you will notice two Fugazi tracks. The first one is an amazing encore of the band from a 1994 show in Delaware. I was at Dischord House the other day when Ian was giving this one a listen. I asked if we could have it for the show and he gave us the go ahead. It goes well with the other Fugazi track, from their soundtrack album, Instrument.
It's a fantastic show. Is it right for a Sunday? What would be the "right" show for a Sunday? I have no idea, really. So, we did what we thought was the right thing. This is the music part. Insults, bad humor and rampant immaturity will no doubt find their place in the spaces in between. You know how we are.
As always, we hope you get a chance to listen in, live, archive, however you can and also hope that you dig what we're putting across.
