KCRW Broadcast #144 for Saturday, December 10

Fanatics! What a show! It's the mother of all shows. It's gigantic and fantastic! It is extraordinary and wonderful in every way. It hits all the marks and nails all the notes. Trust me on this. I am an expert at sitting uselessly in a chair and listening to good music and this is one is a top notch. Top notch!

I am still pulling out of my Stooges coma. I am still tripping from seeing Iggy and the band last week. I have been listening to Stooges, Iggy solo records as well as the very fine Sin Sin Sin album by Le Butcherettes, who opened for the Stooges and killed it up there.

Tonight, you get new Wire, a shot of Metabolist, who we have not rocked in a long time. More new Oh Sees, Le Butcherettes, a smokin' version of Thin Lizzy's “Cowboy Song” from the brand new Thin Lizzy BBC box set, pricey but worf it, mate! Also, a great Mike Watt cut from his Hyphenated Man album. Some Yiddish Rap from Chibi Vision, new Climax Denial and some Coyle & Sharpe and blues stylings from the incomparable Robert Pete Williams.

Thanks again for all the cool mail from all over the world about last week's show. Myself, the Young Will Bentley and Engineer X live to serve you up the best Jihad Jams we can week after week.

Next week is going to be Dinosaur Jr. heavy as the band is on tour on the West coast and I will be with them, interviewing the band before they play their Bug album in its entirety. I have seen them do this eight times this year and I can't wait for another week of monster sounds by one of my favorite bands of all time.

Listen live if you can and STAY FANATIC!!! –Henry
