RADIO BROADCAST #417
Fanatic! Did your Damaged Bug Bunker Funk album come in yet? I got mine a few days ago. Sounds great on vinyl, as does the Crystal Fairy album.
Two great records set to come out soon on In the Red Records. Larry Hardy is tearing it up this year. Run, do not walk, to these records. First, the new CFM album, Dichotomy Desaturated, which will be out soon. Larry gave us the green light to start playing tracks now, and of course, we did. Look at the beginning of Hour 2. Great record.
Also, Chain and the Gang are now on In the Red. They have a record called The Best of Crime Rock coming out soon. It is rerecordings of some of their earlier songs along with some new ones thrown in. The last time I saw them, they played “The Logic of Night,” new at the time; it really stood out. This song is on the new album and we have it on the show for you in our first hour. Both of these records will be available soon on In the Red.
As I told you before, Larry and I are in cahoots, working together to release a very cool single for Record Store Day. It’s being pressed right now. Since Larry and I did it, there are some interesting color variations. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THESE. So excited about this record. Get ready, get set. All profits from the record are going to the band. We want to see this one blow out in one day. We will announce soon.
We hope you dig the show. Already working on next week’s.
