Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: Your Ears Are in Good Hands

Fanatics! Is this fantastic or what?! We are back on the radio yet again and this one is going to rock! Last week, we had quite the esoteric affair, especially ending with Free Bird. Perhaps a KCRW first? Tonight, we change course and go on a charm offensive of our very own.

Fanatic Heidi M contributed the Gay Witch Abortion we play for you tonight. I had never heard of them, she kindly turned me onto them. Thank you, Ms. M. Chip Kinman's wife Lisa also asked if we could get a Dils track on the show. Not a problem.

If you check our starting track for hour two, you will see one of our more regular suspects, Jimi Hendrix. I did not have high hopes for the "new" Hendrix album the estate has recently released called People, Hell & Angels. The material ranges from the somewhat cool if you have never heard it before to the insulting to the fans money grab.

Tonight's version of "Hear My Train" is the same one that's on this album, but it's unedited and sounds better. It is pulled from one the ridiculous amount of Hendrix bootleg LPs and CDs I have accumulated over the years. I am tempted to do a bootleg version of this album so you can hear alt versions of almost every track on it. I wish I could recommend People, Hell & Angels but I can't. I am looking forward to hearing both U.S. and UK versions of Are You Experienced, recently re-released in mono on LP. I just got them and am looking forward to hearing how they sound.

After Jimi, we go all over the place and it's waves of pure greatness. Irene Moon into Art Tatum? That is SO working for me.

Get ready for a new Oh Sees album soon as well as a great release from Marnie Stern. Could that be coming out next week? I think it might be. I have been listening to Chronicles Of Marnia for awhile now, and it's great.

Look out in mid April for the Sun Ship Sessions of John Coltrane to come out. We will be all over this one. I have been checking out the new Stooges album, Ready To Die, and next week, we will be playing a track from it. This one hits on April, 30.

As you can see by looking at the list of tunes below, your ears are in good hands. Whoa!

Thanks for reading and STAY FANATIC!!!
