Fanatic! Behold! Engineer X, Engineer Am-Rock and I are back with more primo tunes. This is, as they say, what it’s all about.

Here is an interesting thing I just happened onto: I was digging the Colin Potter tracks we are rocking on our show here and checked him out online and found out that Mr. Potter was quite prolific. I checked out a CD set of his early work called Ancient History. I am digging it so far and we will be getting into that a few shows from now. Also, a new Steven R. Smith/Ulaan Khol project called Salt will hopefully be coming out on Soft Abuse at the end of next month. It’s great. We will be getting into that one soon-ish as well.

As usual, there is a ton of great music happening out there. At this point, we may be beating on you really hard with the Drinks album but it’s really great. Also, I have just heard a proper copy of the new Fuzz double LP Fuzz II. Not only did the band knock it out of the park but John Golden’s mastering is supreme. We will getting into this one heavily.

If you find yourself digging the Moving Gelatine Plates, the re-issued version of the first album sounds really good, so purchase without fear.

I found some great records in D.C. when I was there last week, they will be finding themselves shows upcoming.

Also, so lucky, I got to see Olivia Neutron-John as well Ian Svenonius do sets in D.C. Talk about amazing! Anna told me that the O N-J album will be getting repressed and that she would keep me in the loop on that. I will let you know when and where.

As for the amazing gathering we have here, I am listening to it now and it’s another great mix tape that we hope you enjoy very much.

Fire up those tubes and STAY FANATIC!!!
