RADIO BROADCAST #446
Fanatic! It's Thursday the 12th of October, 0831 hrs. I've been up since 0330 hrs. I'll pay a few hours from now when I face plant into my keyboard. I'm listening to all the tracks for this show and I think we're in for a good time.
Please don't miss out on this one, a great single from Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds on In the Red. We'll be playing this one later in the month.
Also on In the Red, the Ty Segall Band's Slaughterhouse has been recut and remastered as a double LP. This one went out of print really fast the first time around. Now you get an extra track and it's sounding great. We'll get into this one in November.
I can't tell you what to do, Fanatic. Can I suggest that after you listen to tonight's Nico track, you check out her Drama of Exile album and read up on the scandal surrounding it that led to it being recorded all over again? It's one hell of a story and now, you can hear both versions. The original is by far the better one but the other one's interesting as well.
Look at this track list, will ya?! It's a great one. I think I'm going to play it again later on today.
Play your records and STAY FANATIC!!!
