Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: Boris, Gun Club, R.I.P Ex-Motörhead Guitarist Würzel

KCRW BROADCAST #123 for Saturday, July 16.

Fanatics! What a show we have for you tonight! All you need to do is look down the list and it's all good all the way the way through.

If you look a ways down this stellar gathering of great tunes and you will see two Boris tunes with the same title. Not a typo! There are two different versions of this album. I took both versions of the song "Statement" and put them into our set because they are so different from each other, I thought you would dig hearing them both. It's not the first time we have played two Boris songs in our set.

Re-issue Dept.: The Gun Club's last album, Lucky Jim, has been re-issued on LP by Bang Records. This is a great album and previously, extremely hard to find on vinyl. It sounds great. We play a track from the album tonight to hopefully whet your appetite.

Passing On Dept.: As many of you Fanatics know, sadly, ex- Motörhead guitarist Würzel passed away on July 9th. He was in the band many years ago but is on quite a few of the band's albums. I met him a few years ago, really cool guy. So, in his honor, we play a Motörhead track that he played on.

Live Show Alert Dept.: It was a great week for shows. Last Tuesday night, I went to the Echo and saw Omar Souleyman and Wednesday went to the Troub and checked out Tinariwen. Great shows and bravo to L.A. for selling out both gigs!

Tonight, we rock some Omar, perhaps a track you might not be familiar with. It's from a CD of his that I got in Saudi Arabia in 2009. I bet you that there's a lot more Omar Souleyman that we have not yet heard.

I put some bands into the show that we have not hung out with for awhile like Gorch Fock and at least a couple of first timers, Mr. Gnome and The Sway Machinery.

You know how we do it, Fanatics. We keep it as off-balance as possible. Dig this show and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
