Fanatic, the below was written before the passing of Lemmy. If I were to write this again now, it would be quite a bit more restrained. Lemmy was a good man. We are very lucky to have so much good music he made for us. Henry 12-31-15 1336 hrs.
Fanatic! Happy new year to you. I am elated that KCRW has seen fit to allow us onto the airwaves yet again. If you look below, you will see nothing but great jams, one after another.
I have listened to the tracks of this show as a mix tape twice now and I believe it’s ready to go.
Presently, I am listening to a re-issue of an early Scientist album called Introducing Scientist. It’s on Superior Viaduct, which is unrelenting in great releases. I bought the re-issue of this on Important years ago. Damn, this sounds great. Next week, we will open the show with a track from it. Here is more information: http://www.superiorviaduct.com/collections/featured/products/scientist-introducing-scientist-the-best-dub-album-in-the-world-lp
What’s on for this show is just a cool mix of tunes. Hopefully, you have had a few days off and got some records played without a lot of other things jumping off.
By the time this show airs, I will be in Berlin getting ready for the first of many shows all over the world. I will be putting together tracks from several points and communicating with Engineer X and Engineer Am-Rock loooooooong distance.
Now, if you think that I am going to spend a couple of pre-show nights in Berlin, sitting in coffee places at night, listening to Bowie and Iggy, you’re . . . absolutely right, Fanatic!
Happy 2016 and STAY FANATIC!!!
