RADIO BROADCAST #410
Fanatic! I hope that if you were in the Los Angeles area last week, you were able to check out one of the Melvins/Sleep shows at the Fonda. So great.
If you check out our tracks below, Fanatic, you will see some new bands. When I was in Australia last year, I picked up a lot of records, not all of them from Australia. One of them was the Glomb album by Mosquito Ego. I was listening to it last week and really liked it, so I put a track into our show. If you like it, the rest of the record is as good.
Asa from Lungfish has been making records under the handle Zomes for quite a while, and they are very cool, but on his last album, Near Unison, he changed things up and brought in Hanna Olivegren for vocals, keyboard and bass. The results are really good. I thought you would like to hear a track from it. I have had this record for a while but have not heard it in at least a year.
I got the Cold Meat single in Australia last year, I am guessing from Richie at Strangeworld in Melbourne. Great record.
Way down at the end of the show, we listen to Grouper, aka Liz Harris. I don’t think we have ever played her on the show before. I don’t know why. Her records are really good. I have vinyl of her stuff but not much on digital. I will work on that to get more tracks to you.
It’s a good show all the way through and I hope you will enjoy listening to it at least a few times through. No green card needed.
