KCRW Broadcast #151 for Saturday, February 11, 2012
Fanatics! Cold much? Scandinavia has all the cold you could ever want. I am sitting in the airport in Helsinki, Finland, waiting for a flight to Frankfurt. From there we will go to Linz, Austria. I will get in a car meeting us at the airport and report to a studio and do some voice over work — some night off!
I am twenty-five shows into the tour. I think I can safely say that I am on the road at this point. Things have been going well night to night.
I can't tell you how glad I am that we are on the radio again, slingin' great tunes, one after another. Tomorrow night's line up is a bit of a tribute to Winter, not all the way but you will see quite a bit of cold references all throughout the show.
New Evens, new Soccer Team tracks tomorrow night, courtesy of the mighty Dischord label.
I am working on a lot of upcoming shows. I must warn you, Fanatic — we are going to go way out there in 2012. Stratospheric, Avant, into some great new territory. This very well could be our best year yet. Whenever I am on tour with Road Manager Ward, school is in. He has been turning me onto to some seriously great music. When I get back to America in several days, I will have some great material lined up for us to check out in the weeks and months ahead.
For now, dig all this crazy music below and I hope you liked last week's Scandinavian excursion. Stay alive and STAY FANATIC!!! –Henry
