KCRW BROADCAST #116 for Saturday, May 28.
I am in a hotel room in Hanoi, Vietnam. We just walked away from twelve hours of shooting footage all day until sunset. Very hot out and I am worn down. We are up early in the morning for India via Thailand.
I have been out here all week. We have been putting in long days in the heat but we have been getting some memorable footage and that's what it's all about.
I have listened down to this show a number of times and I have come to the conclusion that we have yet again delivered a beautiful evening of sonic goodness.
Some Dax Riggs to remind you L.A. Fanatics that the man is coming to town on June 10 & 11 at the Echo. I will be getting back into town on the 10th and will try to make it to the show that night. I will be coming back from this trip, via the Bonaroo Festival. New Kid Congo, sounds great. Could be the first time we have played any Vivian Girls, great to get them on the air.
I know very well you don't need me to walk you though this, you know what you're doing.
Hey, next week, we will be starting both hours with a track from the two, count 'em two, new Boris albums, Attention Please and Heavy Rocks. THEY ARE BOTH GREAT. I am very excited about these records. I was listening to Attention earlier today on the way to the first shoot. What a band.
I am sunburnt, hungry yet too tired to eat. I am up in a few hours so I better get packed and squared. Rock this jam session and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
