RADIO BROADCAST #333
Fanatic! Thanks for checking out these notes. I am currently on a boat in Ecuador. Internet is at best slow and unreliable, so this will have to be brief. I want to get this posted before the connection changes its mind.
Below, you will see great music. We got the green light to rock new Fuzz tracks, the ones that have been posted already but still, hey, they sound great and we’ll be playing the other one next week. The whole album is great and you will be hearing it on this show as soon as we get the go-ahead.
I wanted to give you a heads up about this: Julia from Rice Is Nice Records in Australia will be coming into the studio with me for a live show on the 30th. For the most part, she is picking all the tunes, really great stuff from Australia. I will be putting in a new VUM track that the band has given us to play. It is great. This all goes down on the 30th, so get ready for that.
Due to technology, I am going to end this now, but will say that every animal I have seen here in Ecuador is beautiful and rivals humankind. From the ants to the dolphins. It is amazing down here. And irreplaceable. And fragile.
I hope you dig the show and STAY FANATIC!!!
