KCRW Broadcast #147 for Saturday, January 7, 2012
Fanatics! Just so you know, this set was specifically engineered and put together with great care in order to bring you the maximum enjoyment as we gather together live for the first time this year.
2012 promises to be interesting to say the least and we will be doing our level best to keep you motivated and buoyant through a year which will no doubt be regarded as “one for the books.” You betcha!
Tonight we are live in the Jasonic Temple, this would be 89.9 FM KCRW — the station that Jason Bentley built.
Jasonically speaking, to borrow and mangle a phrase, I would like you to leave this paragraph momentarily and look below at what lies in store for you. When you're done, come back up here, I'll wait. Nice, right? This is a great way to start our 2012.
We have new Buck Gooter! The band's first LP! Not many were pressed, you might want to check this out soon.
While you're there, you might want to check out the massive Fugazi Live Series part of the site. Totally amazing. Years in the making and still an ongoing project. I spoke to Ian MacKaye about it last week and he says that there hundreds more shows that will be added and more coming in. I was rocking the 09-03-87 Wilson Center set the other night — so great! One of the best live bands ever.
Tonight, we get a double dose of Kelly Halliburton. We will listen to his band P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. as well as another band he is called Pierced Arrows. I was lucky enough to see them about five times a few weeks ago. Excellent band. Kelly sent us MP3's for use in our show as the Make It Through The Night is LP only.
Also, new Soccer Team on Dischord. It's a three song 7″ on Lovitt that comes with a download card. Hopefully this could mean that there will be a Soccer Team album later this year. I have no information on that but you never know. My own opinion — there is not one bad Soccer Team song and if this EP is any indication of what a new batch of tunes from them would sound like, count me at the front of the line!
I don't think we have ever played this Stooges outtake before, it's from the Fun House Sessions box set. That's an interesting release. I have spent a lot of time with it but that was years ago, perhaps I will have a chance in the upcoming weeks to get back into it.
New Evens! A great two song single at Dischord right now. Hopefully, an album later this year. I have heard a lot of the new songs and they are excellent. Another great year for Dischord. Also, new Liar of the Minotaur and another cut from the Night Sun album by VUM.
As some of you Fanatics know, I am leaving for tour soon and the next few shows are pre-taped. To make it more fun, Engineer X, The Young Will Bentley and I all got together to do them. This was Will's idea. The shows go a lot better with the three of us. Being with you live on the radio is ultimate, of course, but the road calls. A lot of work went into the making of all the shows, song selection, etc. Please listen if you can.
Ok, enough of me and my flying fingers. This show is all about the music. Listen in an open-eared frame of mind and STAY FANATIC!!! — Henry
