RADIO BROADCAST #399
Fanatic! Backstage at the Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri. I have done a lot of shows here. Excellent venue with great sound and lights.
I am listening to all the songs for this show and am very happy with how things turned out.
The new album by Thee Oh Sees, An Odd Entrances is out. Another great addition to the already stellar Thee Oh Sees catalog. Here is where to go for info.
All is well out here. Getting as much listening done as I can pre-show. Post-show, I am too wiped out from the day to concentrate, but am getting a lot of jams checked out on the treadmill and backstage before I get onstage.
In November, I listen to a lot of Joy Division. I listen to Closer at least twice a week. It’s an interesting record. So much has been said about Unknown Pleasures, and deservedly so, that it’s easy to forget that the band followed up quite ambitiously with a second full LP.
We will start playing tracks from the new Point Juncture, WA album, Me or the Party. Easily in my top five for the year. What a great band! This is my favorite album of theirs. We will be getting into this one big time. Here is information.
I hope you dig the show. If you have been coming to see me over the last several weeks, thank you for that also!
Thanks for listening and STAY FANATIC!!!
