RADIO BROADCAST #345
Fanatic! I hope you are digging your November wherever you are. Temperatures dropped in Los Angeles recently. I celebrated by listening to Nico and Stockhausen. I became interested in Stockhausen watching the Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution documentary. I only have one record of his but there’s a lot online to listen to. So far, very interesting stuff.
Some records I have been checking out lately and really liking:
Hierophants – Parallax Error. Here is a tune.
Wolf Eyes – I Am a Problem.
As you know, Wolf Eyes makes many recordings on the American Tapes label, but now and then they go out into the independent record world and release a record that is actually fairly easy to find. I Am a Problem is on Third Man and it’s very good.
Also, new-ish releases by Black Pus and Lightning Bolt are worth checking out. I was thinking about both groups after wondering what Brian Chippendale, who is in both bands, was up to. I checked out their catalogs and saw that I was a few records behind. A couple of long listening sessions later, I can report that all their new records are great.
We have a fantastic show lined up for you. Check below to see what I’m talking about.
I will be in Belgium when the show hits the airwaves. I have a couple of days in London after that and will hopefully get to some record stores. We are working away on new shows, putting in lots of new ingredients. I hope you get a chance to check them out.
Rock the jam session and STAY FANATIC!!!
