Fanatic! Writing to you from strangely spring like Koln, Germany. Road Manager Ward and I just got back from a few record stores and there were some great finds. It’s interesting to see how much records you bought for regular price have jumped up over the years. I picked up first pressings of Neu! and Kraftwerk albums, a Prince Jammy album called Destroys the Invaders and a well priced copy of CB 200 by Dillinger. I will be in Stockholm when this show hits the airwaves.
I got a letter from our good pal Jerry over at Smartguy Records. Last week, I incorrectly told you that a track from the Leon EP came out on Hozac but actually it was on Smartguy. Here is that information one more time: http://www.smartguyrecords.com
This is a very, very cool show, Fanatic. Check out our second hour! A stack of new tracks from our pals over at In The Red Records. http://intheredrecords.com
GØGGS is a collab between Ty Segall, Charles Moothart and Chris Shaw of Ex-Cult, dig them covering Iggy! Wolfmanhattan Project is new joint by Kid Congo. We also have new Kid as well as new Ex-Cult. But wait Fanatic, there’s more. We have been given access to the new Charles Moothart solo jam called Still Life of Citrus and Slime. It’s not out until April but we have been given the green light to rock as much of it as we want and I believe we will do just that. It’s a great one all the way through.
Talking about Iggy, I was given a copy of the man’s new album, Post Pop Depression. It’s great and we will be able to start laying tracks on you soon.
This is a show and a half and we hope you dig it. I have been working on my days off and pre show on our February shows and I must say, they are coming along well. I am halfway done with what will be a great Bowie show for the 28th.
Until next week, dig all this great music action and STAY FANATIC!!!
