Fanatic! I hope you had a great week. Last night, I listened to The Fall - Live At St. Helens Technical College '81 LP + 7” that Castle Face has just released. This is such a great find. The sound quality is superb and the band is just incredible. It’s amazing that this show went unreleased for so long. If you’re a Fall fan, you really want to check this out. I went to the label’s Bandcamp page looking for a download version. I want to play the whole thing on one of our shows this year. So far, I haven’t found any place where I can get a digital version but I’ll keep trying. Here’s the Castle Face address for the record if you’re interested.
I’ve been getting my spring listening set up over the last several days, balancing those records with new ones that have been coming in as well as checking out the records that have been sitting on the shelf for awhile. Next to my desk in the office, I have a lot of interesting music on CD and cassette. I have two boxes. One of them is for what I haven’t heard yet. I play something and once it’s done, I put it in the other box. It’s so utilitarian but it works. I’m in there every day, working on things.
As to our show tonight, it’s a great one. We’ve got a great mix tape of songs that you will hopefully find to your liking.
Next week, get ready, in our second hour, we will be listening to the Ty Segall live at Zebulon show. It’s a great thirty minute set with Ty in full distorto mode that I think you’re going to like.
There are some great records that have come out recently that we’ll be getting into. I think we’re in for an excellent spring/summer of music.
Let’s be smart, have a great time and STAY FANATIC!!!
