Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: Hot, Sweaty Summer Playlists
KCRW Broadcast #174 for Saturday, July 21, 2012
Fanatics! It's another Saturday night of great music! Sadly, we lost the great John Lord of Deep Purple recently, so we will start out tonight's show with some prime DP. I don't know if you ever saw them play. I saw them twice and they were excellent live.
If you notice, we have all kinds of new music in our two hours of unlimited joy. We are doing our best to keep exploring and widening the scope and not merely just hurl in any new release that gets sent in. These selections are indeed handpicked and agonized over, drafted, redrafted and well considered. You deserve nothing less!
I am really liking the Jaill album. I had never heard of them before. Another sturdy release for Sub Pop. I know the Eddy Current album isn't all that new and we have been playing a lot of Australian music lately but I can't stop listening to this album. If you get a chance, pick this one up on LP, it's really the way to rock this band! The Black Tambourine double 7" is interesting. The band has reformed, at least to go into the studio for of all things, to record four Ramones covers. We play one of them tonight. It would be great to hear some new songs from this band!
Look at all the cool strangeness we get up to in our second hour! A lot of Scandinavian jams happening here. This has been my nightly listening fare as of late. There is a very cool scene in Finland. I had an inkling of it but a few months ago, when I was there, I really got it and since then, it's been full on immersion. So, get ready for more of that stuff. I think you're going to like it.
Upcoming, we have some great shows lined up as we start to say goodbye to summer. While it's hot, we shall continue to make set lists that are good for the heightened temperatures.
Lean into the speakers with us tonight, click with the language and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
