RADIO BROADCAST #375
Fanatic! I am preparing these notes a day early. Tomorrow, I will interview our good pal J Mascis for Magnet magazine. He will be in France and I will be in Los Angeles. We will be talking, at least in part, about the new Dinosaur Jr. album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, which, unsurprisingly, I find to be great from start to finish. Pre-orders for the album are happening now.
The new Kikagaku Moyo album, House in the Tall Grass, is out and it’s really good. Midheaven, one of the most solid mail-order places anywhere, has it.
I just got back from Munich, where I was at the Rockavaria Festival. After I was off, Iggy started 10 minutes later. Great timing for me. He played “Five Foot One,” which was really cool.
OK, so let’s have a look at all the great jams we have lined up here. I know we have a double dose of Iggy because I thought it was the right thing to do. We have another track from the new Lorelle Meets the Obsolete album, Balance. I can’t seem to get a release date on it. It’s a great album. Can’t wait to hear this one on vinyl.
I think I told you that the new Terakaft album Alone finally came out on vinyl. Sounds great.
We are playing a Saint Vitus track. The band’s guitarist wrote me weeks ago and told me they had dates this year with Scott Reagers. I went to their site and there are only dates from last year. Hopefully, they will update at some point.
I think these notes will take longer to read than the time for the show, so I will stop here. We hope you dig the tunes.
Listen often and STAY FANATIC!!!
