KCRW BROADCAST #102 for Saturday, Feb. 19.
Fanatics! Tonight we say happy birthday to one Tony Iommi, guitarist for the mighty Black Sabbath! We start each hour with a track featuring the giant axeman's greatness.
If you look over our list of tracks for tonight, you will see that we have all kinds of great jams. NEW J. MASCIS. Oh yes, y'all, it's happening. New J solo record called Several Shades Of Why on Sub Pop, to be released on March 15. Megan over at the label kindly sent me a download of the album so we could play tracks on our show. Tonight's track features backup vocals by Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), and Kurt Vile. We are extra happy to have the track to lay on you Fanatics. We will be keeping in touch with Sub Pop and turning loose other tracks until release date and afterwards.
New Marnie Stern release:
A download of Marnie's demos pre first album is now available. Interesting listening as it's Marnie and that's great but to hear the tracks without the pummeling force of Zach Hill gives the listener a different way of accessing her music. Here's the place to go. Marnie is playing the Echo this Friday. I will be onstage while she is, so I can't go.
As you know, I have shows all week and through the weekend at Largo. It's been going great but it makes things like these notes somewhat hurried, so if this is brief, I apologize.
As usual, we have a great show for you that I hope you dig immensely. I will perhaps see some of you at the shows here in town. If you don't get a chance to tune into this one live, check it on archive. Until then, stand up with Madison, WI and STAY FANATIC!!!
