Episode 35: Harry, Where Did Your Balls Roll Off To?

Greetings Dear Listener,

We begin this installment with a letter written by Tomas Young.  He is a veteran of the Iraq War which is now in its 10th year.  The experiment in unbridled Friedmanism was a total failure and all of the guilty parties still breathe free air.  Bullshit of the highest order I say.

Here's a link to the text of Tomas' letter:

The Last Letter

Be sure to check out the documentary Body Of War.  Tomas Young is the focus of it.  It is not an easy film to watch.

The Rival Schools "Found" album has started shipping from the label.  It should be in my ears by the end of the week.  We will certainly get into heavy doses of this one as the weeks go by.

Burn is the first track from Ready To Die that has been made available by Iggy & The Stooges.  It is because of this track that I am cautiously optimistic about the album.  April 30th can't get here fast enough.

OFF! has one of their shows from Australia streaming in its entirety.

Here's the link to it:

OFF! at the Annandale Hotel

The Gaslight Anthem has finally booked a show in Pittsburgh.  I will be sitting on the sidewalk of the venue until June with my dancing shoes on.

How many days since Newtown has it been?  And how much closer are we to getting something done?  How many steps backward can we take until we forget that day?

Thanks for listening.

Until next time.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.

Episode 34: Good Morning Galapagos!!!

Greetings Dear Listener,

We are a month and a half away from new Stooges.  Three months away from new Black Sabbath and the Bosnian Rainbows.  Get your ears primed and ready for a bloodening.

And we are days away from The Chronicles of Marnia from Marnie Stern.  It is currently streaming on the NPR website and available for order from Kill Rock Stars.

The east coast anniversary shows for Anti-Flag have been booked.  Lemuria will be playing one of the Pittsburgh dates.  My schedule will finally be crossing paths with theirs.  Hooray.

Deerhoof and Japandroids will also be out and about this spring and summer.  Time to get out of the house, it is.

We send a special hello to our listeners along the Equator who are hanging out on the Galapagos Islands for a few weeks.  How goes it?  I hope you find this to be a satisfactory mix.

Am I the only one that feels a violent urge when Jabba The Justice opens his fat, racist, well paid mouth?  Humanity is continually fucked because of people like him.

Thanks for listening.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.
