KCRW BROADCAST #132 for Saturday, September 17, 2011

Fanatics! Tomorrow night we settle in more comfortably into our new time slot. Hopefully you are still able to tune in. Tomorrow night's show is a good one, no make that a GREAT one. We start with one of the best Buzzcocks songs ever and go right into a Marnie Stern track because she is coming to town on October 2nd.

Since I will be heading to the airport to go to Washington DC -- and beyond -- several hours after the show, we included a nice slice of DC area tunes, starting with the Bad Brains track.

Upcoming Events

In Dischord related news, I have heard the new Evens single that is slated to come out later this year. It's a two song 7" and the songs sound great. Hopefully, there's an album in the works for next year. Ian did us a favor and scrubbed a few tracks from some upcoming Dischord releases so we don't have to worry about FCC restrictions. I will pick those up when I see the man this Sunday.

Way down towards the end of the list, you will see a band called Vum. Apparently, they are local and will have an LP version of what they sent me, out in November. In their bio, they make reference to the band Suicide, a group that we listen to a lot on this show, as you know. The way the track listing ended up, Vum and Suicide are right next to each other, so that worked out rather well. The album sounds pretty cool; on LP it should fill the room nicely.

One of my favorite Black Flag songs is "Damaged II" and the best version is on the Everything Went Black album. So tomorrow night we listen the great Dez Cadena on vocals. I guess Dez is still in the Misfits. It's been a long time since I have seen him.

Apparently, Chuck Dukowski has a new band called Black Face. I have been getting a lot of letters about this, like am supposed to know something. I really don't but I read that they have music recorded so hopefully we will get a chance to check that out.

I think our show is a good one and the Serge track will have a little something extra that you might find good. Dig the jams and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
