RADIO BROADCAST #401
Fanatic! Backstage in San Antonio. It’s the last of my four shows in Texas.
A lot of really cool bands on this show. Many of the records I picked up in Australia are featured. Also, the last tune for the night is yet another track from Point Juncture WA’s great Me or the Party album, my personal favorite track.
Track 11, in the first hour, by Hiiragi Fukuda, check out the searing guitar solo out of nowhere that kicks in at 2:56 into the track. What a great hook!
Did you see what Drastic Plastic is up to? They reissued the first two Cramps albums along with Gravest Hits. I can’t wait to hear what they have done to these albums. They have been putting out some amazing reissues. Here is info:
I am listening to the tracks for this right now and I think we have a great one. I hope you dig it.
Listen a lot and STAY FANATIC!!!
