RADIO BROADCAST #425
Fanatic! I have been living in hotels for the last two weeks. This show was built over several nights in small rooms in different parts of Peru. In a few hours, I will start making my way back to Los Angeles. Three flights and 24 hours later, I will hopefully stagger through LAX and into traffic.
Here are some worthwhile updates:
New Boris: hellomerch.com/collections/boris.
New Guerilla Toss: guerillatoss.bandcamp.com.
New My Cat Is an Alien: ellipticalnoise.bandcamp.com.
The MCIAA is previously released material but in a limited 50 edition. This would be for the fan who has to have it all.
We will have a new GT track from the GT Ultra album next week.
As to this here show, it’s another warm weather collection! I have played it through a few times and think it’s ready to go. I have wanted to get the Lee Perry “Kimble the Nimble” track to you for a long time. I have a lot of Perry comps but none of them had the “Kimble” track, so I finally broke down and bought a download of it. It took all of a minute. The convenience felt slightly wrong but at least we have the track. We start our second hour with the great version by The Fall.
Hopefully, this will be two hours you will enjoy.
