Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: Cramps, Andy Warhol References
KCRW Broadcast #156 for Saturday, March 17, 2012
Fanatics! I am writing you from what's left of a night off in Washington DC. I had a good day driving around town with Ian MacKaye. A few hours ago, we drove by the house where Minor Threat played their first show.
Saturday night's show is pre-taped. That being said, we have done our best to make it as good as we can. I think we have succeeded. Due to the fact that I am in Pittsburgh while the show is playing on the mighty KCRW, and seeing how the Warhol Museum is putting on the show, I thought it best to start and end the show with Warhol references.
I am glad we have some Cramps in the set. Ian and I drove by the old Ontario Theater earlier today. That's where we saw The Clash, Gang Of Four, Buzzcocks, Damned and the Cramps. Whenever I am here, I always think of them and miss the fact that Lux is gone.
If you check out our wonderful playlist, I think you will see that you are in for a very good two hours of your life. I do hope you enjoy it.
New Album Alert: Get ready for a great album by J Mascis and friends. Many years ago, J was part of a trio jam unit called Heavy Blanket. They never recorded the songs they wrote in 1984. Last winter, they got together and laid them down. I have heard the record and it's six slices of brain damaging, guitar drenched instrumentals. Looks like it's coming out in early May. I am trying to secure some tracks for airplay. I will let you know what I come up with.
Remember that on April 7, Ian MacKaye is live in the studio with us. It should be a great night of music and conversation. Listen to the jams tonight and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
