RADIO BROADCAST #442
Fanatic! Another great September show. We’ve got tunes from new releases as well as some of our autumn favorites.
An artist I don’t know anything about but is very interesting, Franco Battiato, will start our show. Some of his work has been reissued by the very excellent Superior Viaduct. Steve sent files of the albums and I thought we should check out a track. Some really cool upcoming releases on this label.
I have great news. There's a new Chain & The Gang album, Experimental Music, coming out soon on Radical Elite/Dischord. You can pre-order now and get in on the limited 200 clear vinyl and get two songs when you order up. Of course, we're going to listen to a track of it — but in classic Fanatic style, we will check out a track that isn't either of the two that come with the pre-order, because we're so cool. The album is really great. Here's the info.
Also, in the run-do-not-walk department, are the Eno half-speed master reissues. Two LP sets, cut at 45 rpm. They sound incredible. Your stereo will hug you.
A band I was turned onto by the good folks at Upset! The Rhythm out of the U.K., called The World, will start our second hour. Such a cool record. I hope you like them.
We just got a cool care package from Gary Wilson's people, so we'll get into a track from one of those records in hour 2. Don't forget about that great live at CBGB album of Gary's that just came out on Feeding Tube. Looks like the black vinyl edition is out of print. I hope that turns around.
