Episode 37: Atomic Batteries To Power, Turbines To Speed

Greetings Dear Listener,

I hope your Record Store Day was as bountiful as mine.  The only thing on my list that I didn't get was the South Park single.  I'm not sure what was on it but I'm sure it was gut busting.

The Miles Davis mono reissues were pressed beautifully.  The quality of them surpasses the Hendrix reissues by leaps and bounds.  Once I get them digitized, we will certainly get into those.

All of the 45's I picked up last weekend have been put onto the hard drive so we'll get a heavy dose of Record Store Day spoils next time around.

The Stooges new album, Ready To Die, is streaming over at the NPR website.  I have listened repeatedly and can't wait until the vinyl comes in the mail.

Here's the link:

Stooges Streaming On NPR

I did pick up tickets for Flag.  The show is at a shitty venue that uses Ticketasshole to distribute their tickets.  Their "convenience" charges are now almost ten dollars a ticket.  Assholes indeed.  But it's Keith Morris and Chuck Dukowski so it's worth it.

The Gaslight Anthem show in Pittsburgh that was supposed to be in June has now been postponed until September and a second show has been added.  Patience is a virtue so I've been told.

Deerhoof played a few Friday's ago.  The sound they made with a stripped down set up was amazing.  And it was in a small room without a bar so the disturbances were minimal.

We lost Richie Havens this week.  He was the first act to play at Woodstock back in 1969.  He was a giant and will be missed.

Patton Oswalt was on a recent episode of Parks & Recreation.  Here's an outtake from the filming:

I think that's the Star Wars movie they would have to make if they want my money.  The Bionic-Spider Wookie would definitely get me out of the house.

Until next time.

Thanks for listening.

Episode 36: Have You Seen Mike Hunt?

Greetings Dear Listener,

This installment is chalk full of new music that I picked up over the past few days.  I made a preemptive strike on a record store or two before Record Store Day.  The list is expansive but underwhelming this year.

Here's a link to see for yourself:

Record Store Day

I'll still venture out to the midnight madness to witness the festivities.

I was able to procure the Deerhoof "Breakup Song" flexi-book and the Stooges Funhouse sessions box set.  We sample the bonus track from the flexi-book this time around and next time we'll get into some alternate takes from Funhouse.

Deerhoof will be coming through Pittsburgh this week.  They'll be playing at the Andy Warhol Museum on April 12th.  Get there if you can.

Forgetters came through town a few weeks ago and they laid it down so we'll hear a track from them.

Found from Rival Schools came out this week.  That was the unreleased album that they recorded back in 2003 or so.  Chris Traynor from Orange 9mm and Helmet played on those sessions so we get to add some Orange 9mm to our diets too.

The White Wives had a record release party for their new EP Howls For Sade.  The event was held at the warehouse/workspace for Commonwealth Press.  To say a good time was had by all would be an understatement.

Here's the link for the good people at Commonwealth press:

Here's a picture of the tip jar belonging to the White Wives' merch guy:

Needless to say, I tipped heavily.  If it wasn't for Nickelback, Canada would be a great place.  Whiny, jock-rock bitches they are.

We changed up the intro music in honor of Jane Henson, the wife of the late Muppets creator Jim Henson.  She passed away a few days ago.  We lost a great one and her husband is still sorely missed.

In Gaslight Anthem news:
The good news--Side One Dummy will be releasing a singles box set from the band's time on the label.  It's seven or eight 45's in a wooden box.  There will be 2,500 pressed in black and 500 in "blood" red only available from Side One's website.
The bad news--The second show booked in Pittsburgh for June 11th has been cancelled for some reason.  As far as I can tell, the show for June 12th is still on.

The reformed version of Black Flag known as Flag will be bringing their sonic airstrike to Pittsburgh on June 7th.  This is the band with Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, Bill Stevenson, Dez Cadena and Steve Egerton.  I have yet to find out who will be opening but it is at a shit hole of a venue.  Tickets are on sale this weekend.  I guess all boycotts come to an end eventually.

Until next time.

Thanks for listening.
