Fanatic! I hope you’ve been having a great July. I’ve been in edit and scan mode, working on a few different projects. 

Cool album alert - Liz Lamere’s new album Keep It Alive on In The Red Records is out. Liz is the wife and longtime collaborator of the great Alan Vega. We’ll start playing tracks next week. 

Also on In The Red, the new Dion Lunadon album Beyond Everything is set for release. It’s really good. We’ll be starting tracks on that one soon too. 

We’ll be starting tracks from the new Party Dozen album The Real Work soon. Another great Party Dozen record. Super interesting band.

I have more shows starting in mid September. The second printing of Stay Fanatic!!! Vol. 3 will be out with me.  https://www.henryrollins.com/tour

I’ve been slowly catching up on new releases that arrived while I was out, as well as checking out all my warm/hot weather favorites. Listening to music is great all year long, of course but this is my favorite season for having the tunes on. 

I’m hoping to have some newly discovered Joe Meek recordings for next month. I’m waiting to hear back, also, that cool band from Georgia, Upchuck has a new album and the label has made radio friendly version for us so we’ll be getting tracks from that happening soon. I just got it but haven’t had the chance to hear it yet. Also, an interesting compilation album called Love Hurts on Flightless that has some great tracks on it, we’ll get into that as well. 

We hope you’ve been digging the shows. We’re going for a cool mix tape concept, throwing in as much new stuff as we can, along with some of our summer favorites. Solid Fanatic listening! 

Keep the tunes going and STAY FANATIC!!!
