KCRW Broadcast #172 for Saturday, July 7, 2012
Fanatics! I hope you are enjoying your holiday. Tonight, again, we have put together two hours of music that works well on ever level. I have played all the songs through three times now and it's really working for me. You know, I always say that but these shows often go through several drafts before they are done. Tonight's show went through quite an evolution to get it to where it is now. We're not just hurling music at the wall with this show!
In our first hour, we will take on that which is somewhat familiar and good to the ear. We have a nice Washington DC based segment in the middle and we finish with new Ruts DC and some other great tracks.
Our second hour gets a little more ambitious. The long awaited Can box set of unreleased tracks has been unleashed, so I figured we should get into that immediately and so, we do. I wanted to keep us moving along yet giving our ears a stretch, so you will different strains of music all the way to the end of the night.
I really like that ESP-era of Albert Ayler and listen to all those albums every summer. I thought it would be a perfect listen for tonight. The Fall track is one of my favorites, the Beggars B-Side collection is a great one.
The Fall is a great band for b-sides in the their Beggars Banquet days. They recorded a ton of them and it is a very worthwhile Fall set to check out.
The Braxton/ Teitelbaum we will close our show with will not be in full. Basically, we will listen to it until we run out of time. I have been wanting to play this one for you for weeks now.
Be careful out there and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
