RADIO BROADCAST #418
Fanatic! I am very happy about this show. I built it several days ago, played it through a couple of times, made a few adjustments and reckoned it was ready for your evaluation and, hopefully, your great enjoyment.
The new Ty Segall single is really good. I like the new album but like these two new songs even better. If his next album sounds like these two songs, we’re in for another great Ty album. The two-color version is out of print but there is a red vinyl version on the way. I have not seen it yet.
I hope you got your Damaged Bug album by now. Bunker Funk is an interesting record. It’s different than the last two. I have heard it a few times now and I’m liking it more and more. It’s on Castle Face.
In the Red has so many cool records coming out now and in the not so distant future, I don’t know when Larry will get any sleep until the end of the year. We are playing some of them tonight. Keep your eye on ITR.
New music by Dan Valor also known as Clarinette. A record called The Now of Then. Very good. We have a track lined up in hour 2.
A few days ago, I wrote Steph from Dick Diver to ask what she and the band are up to. She has a couple of projects happening and will have some new music up hopefully this year. She sent me some demos and they are really good. When she is ready to release, we will be there.
There is a new Lower Plenty album out called Sister Sister. It came out last year. I was sent the songs before then and told to sit on them until I was told I could play them for you. They forgot to tell me the record was out, so like a good Fanatic, I held the line. Well, the record came out like four months ago and we are behind the curve, so we have some catching up to do.
Enough of my prattling!
