KCRW Broadcast 342

Fanatic! We have yet again put together a great list of tunes that you will hopefully enjoy.

Thank you for listening to last week’s show as we took a moment to acknowledge the passing of Gail Zappa and Steve Mackay.

For this show, our first hour is classic Punk Rock and we get more exploratory in our second hour. The Creeping Pink album is really cool, that’s on Castle Face.

Last night, I listened to the new Wand album 1000 Days on Drag City. I had the download but the LP arrived yesterday and I got it spinning immediately. It is pretty damn amazing. The other two Wand albums Ganglion Reef and Golem are great but 1000 Days is quite a breakthrough. If are a Wand fan, run do not walk to 1000 Days. Otherwise, it’s just a great record, hear it as soon as you can.

If you are presently located in Los Angeles, you might be having a problem believing it’s October. It is almost summer weather. I have been going for some long listening sessions with a lot of my October favorites but it’s hard to get the party going with the temperature so high and the humidity up but I am having a great time anyway.

A few nights ago, I got into a Lightning Bolt jag and listened to Oblivion Hunter and Hypermagic Mountain back to back. Amazing. Also, a lot of Lost Sounds 7”’s and the Jay Reatard Live at Golden Plains. I wish that record was easier to find. It is absolutely blazing. What a band, what great songs. Been checking a lot of Bowie radio singles. They are cut really hot and sound great, it’s like the band is breathing on you. Angie Bermuda of Straight Arrows has released two solo records. Both great. Free Agent is the new one. Listened to it last night. Fantastic. A guy sent me a letter telling me to check out a band called Yes I’m Leaving from Australia. I listened to their new album and ordered a copy. Really powerful stuff.

Julia from Rice Is Nice sent me this link last night for this band High Tension. Working for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lFRmd79GrM

I hope you dig the tunes we have lined up for you and that you’re getting a lot of listening happening elsewhere.

Stay loose and STAY FANATIC!!!
