RADIO BROADCAST #447
Fanatic! Before anything else, look at the great tracks we have lined up for you.
I found out something interesting from Iggy's front of house sound man, the very talented Max. He said that there were enough complaints lodged about the volume drop on the “Heroes” LP and CD in the new Bowie box set that apparently the label is issuing a new copy of that record in whatever format you bought it in. Past that, it looks like there will be nothing more done and fans will have to lump it. What a let down.
Otherwise, things are good. The reissue of the Ty Segall Band's Slaughterhouse album continues to rock like hell.
The new Nazoranai album on Superior Viaduct is so great.
Chain & The Gang Experimental Music. Fantastic.
The new Pere Ubu album 20 Years in a Montana Missile Silo is another great slice of David Thomas and the band. It's on Cherry Red out of the U.K. I found some on Discogs.
Anything by Steven R. Smith, aka Ulaan Markhor is brilliant. Really, the man doesn't miss.
Alex Cameron's Forced Witness album seems to be everywhere. Sharp guy, great record.
I know that at times, it can be difficult to find something to be happy about. We must take it where we can find it. Hopefully, you find two hours right here.
Listen twice and STAY FANATIC!!!
