Fanatics! Summer fairly flew by us yet we managed to stay Fanatic throughout. I know that in many parts of the world, the heat is still with you. In Los Angeles, it's now getting momentum. I think we are going to have quite the brick oven over the next few weeks.

I saw Ty Segall play several days ago in Eagle Rock. Excellent to hear live versions of all the Sleeper tracks. I am still playing that album all the time. I also saw Inger Lorre make the rare live appearance at the Redwood last week. Very cool to see her onstage again.

One of the many things that gives tonight's show great appeal is that we are able to unveil some very new tracks for you.

You remember weeks ago, we rocked track from the Fuzz single? Fuzz are Roland Cosio on bass, Charlie Moothart on guitar and Ty Segall on drums and vocals. Their new album is coming out soon-ish on In The Red. We were able to work it out with the band and the label to bring it to you way in advance. We will roll out a track a week and see how that sits with you. This is a great record! You can check out the album sleeve here.

Also, we got the go ahead to rock tracks from VUM's new album, Psychotropic Jukebox. This is a great one. The band said we could start tonight! I am so happy about this. One of my favorite things is being able to put up tracks before they are in the stores so you Fanatics get the edge. We do it whenever we can. You can get more information on the VUM album here. It is an excellent piece of work and I hope you will see fit in helping them bring this album out. Thanks to VUM for letting us do this.

Also, another track from the Anti-Job. New EP out now.

September is a transitional month. Not really summer and not all that fall. I tried to compose a set of tunes that would address all that. If you notice, there is the D.C. hot weather set as well as in hour two, songs that have autumn in their title.

In our second hour, you will notice that we start it off with new Vice Cooler. VC just sent new jams to Engineer X and they were passed onto me. At this moment, I don't have information on how to get the singles, of which I believe there are two. I will see if I can get info and tell you during the show.

Also, on the killer re-issue label, Superior Viaduct, the Glaxo Babies album Put Me On The Guest List will be coming out in late October. I thought we would jump the gun and rock one of the tracks tonight. Could this be the first ever domestic release of a Glaxo rekkid? Bravo!
