KCRW Broadcast 22

Fanatics! What a week. The Hollywood Bowl show last Sunday was really cool. I didn’t know what to expect with Grace Jones. I am not at all familiar with her music but she was strong. Her guitar player had some serious tone. I think my favorite band of the night was the opener, Dengue Fever. Looking forward to seeing them again. Tonight, it’s a great mix of music from all over the record store, the internets and kind donations. It’s been awhile since we brought in Karp to play, so tonight’s the night. Ian turned me onto that album a few years ago. My office is in a state of temporary uproar and things have been dissappearing. I lost the address of the Fanatic who sent me those cool Zappa CD-R’s. Tonight’s Zappa track is from one of those. Fanatic, if you’re out there, please write me and thanks again for the cool jams. Inspired by DJLiztheparalyza playing Robin Trower last week I think it was, I had to answer back with some more so tonight we listen to the very awesome Bridge Of Sighs. The vocal you hear is the bass player James Dewar. Whenever I hear him sing, I get jealous. He’s one of my favorite singers ever. I think the first time I heard Trower was the Bridge album. Some skaters I knew were into him and as soon as I heard the album, I was a fan. As many of you Fanatics know, several days ago, the 14th to be exact, was the day in 1980 that Ruts vocalist Malcolm Owen passed away and tonight we listen to one of the band’s great b-sides. Tonight, we unleash a track from my tape stash, the Birthday Party track from Bremen. The show has been bootlegged many times over the years but you are hearing a copy off the original tape! Right time, right place for me. I prefer the energy of the live version of tonight’s Bootsy track over the studio version, so we’re going with it. I don’t think we have brought the Yellow Swans to the Jihad for a long time, so we’re taking care of that detail. The tone that Rev. Billy Gibbons gets on this last track is amazing, perhaps my favorite later period ZZ Top track. All in all, Fanatics, a solid mix that hopefully kept you with us for the whole show. Until next week, STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
