RADIO BROADCAST #434
Fanatic! New Fall, Mikey Young, Pontiak and Alan Vega tracks on our show.
Just so you know, we are two weeks away from our show with Mike Patton. That's right, Fanatic, we will be live with Mike Patton on Aug. 6. The man sent me a ton of music and over the last several days, we have been making choices and I think we're almost there. It's going to be a great show with some very interesting music.
I just got my copy of the new Boris album Dear. This one's not to be missed. Heavy as hell. Sounds amazing. We have a track from it already lined up for next week's show.
I think I told you that Larry at In the Red Records and I put out a 7-inch for RSD 2017. If I didn't, we did. It has two tracks from the legendary band Pure Hell. They resided on an acetate, “Wild One” and “Courageous Cat,” tracks found on the Noise Addiction album but recorded before. I got curious to see if there were any still around and looked on Discogs. I found one guy with several of them for cheap. It came out great. If you're looking to get one, there are some there and some at the Midheaven site I think. Worth checking out and all profits go to the band.
This is another fantastic gathering of tunes, which we hope you enjoy.
