Fanatic! Here we are in the great month of October. My favorite one of the year.

All four of our October shows were worked on at once. I tried to make one big show and break it into four parts. What I was going for was four C-90 mix tapes.

I wanted to remind you about Chain & the Gang's Experimental Music album, out now on Dischord.

Also, if you look around, you can find the Chain & the Gang Live at Third Man record. So great!.

If you check the tracks below, you might see what I mean about the mix tape idea. It's just good music from a lot of our familiar sonic allies. This will be our mode for the rest of the month.

November shows are already in the works and there's lots of new music to get ready for.

Until then, get ready for some great tunes.

Listen to records and STAY FANATIC!!!
