Fanatic! Presently in Ghent, Belgium. The backstage area is not all that warm, so I’ve got my coat on. It’s been like this every night of this part of the tour. It’s one of the things I’ve grown used to when doing shows in Europe this time of the year. The shows have been going great and I’m looking forward to getting out there tonight.
Tomorrow, we’ll be heading to England for four there and one in Scotland. When this show airs, I’ll be in Manchester, so in our first hour, we will be prioritizing Manchester bands as well as bands playing there.
I don’t know about you, Fanatic, but it’s taken me several days to get my head around the fact that Mark E Smith is gone. Last night I had a dream about him where he wasn’t gone and The Fall were still making records.
In our second hour, we will be premiering the new Lowtide album Southern Mind. It’s out on February 16th on Rice Is Nice Records. As you know, we work with Rice Is Nice and were given the green light to debut the album, which we’re very happy to be able to do. Click here if you want more information.
It’s a good show we’ve got here. We hope you dig it.
and STAY FANATIC!!!
