KCRW Broadcast 705

Fanatic! Welcome to the month of months! We have a ton of great listening planned, lots of cool concept shows lined up for you. 

I’m on the road, in fact I’m starting the first of three shows in Los Angeles tonight. The rest of the shows on this leg are in California. https://www.henryrollins.com/tour

Last night I was in San Diego, I believe it was the first show I’ve done in California since 2018. Great audience. All’s well out here. Last night was show #100 for the year. I wish there had been more but there were COVID cancellations and I was lucky to get what I got. 

I don’t want you to forget about this cool 7” on Fettkakao

Hammered Hulls LP Careening coming out on 10-28-22 on Dischord.

Some of my favorite October listens include

  • Wire - Pink Flag

  • Teen Idles - Minor Disturbance

  • The Damned - The Black Album

  • Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

  • David Bowie - Low

  • Buzzcocks - Another Music In A Different Kitchen

  • The Adverts - Crossing The Red Sea

  • The Fall - Perverted By Language

  • The Fall - Live At The Witch Trials

  • The Fall - Grotesque

A lot more as well. It’s a month for coming back to all kinds of classic records, favorites of mine I’ve been depriving myself of for months so they sound all the better when October comes back. 

We have five Saturdays together this month. I built all the shows as one epic divided into five parts. I started work on them in August. I wanted time to play them through to make sure they were great. I know it sounds like a lot of extra work but I think it’s worth it. 

Look at what we’ve got happening tonight. We start with an ultimate October listen. I’ll be playing The Black Album after my show is over. I won’t be able to concentrate on it before it’s show time. 

We hope you dig our first of five October shows. Much more to come. Have a great night and STAY FANATIC!!!
