Episode 73: Oink

Greetings Dear Listener,

As I type this I am listening to the new Sarah Silverman record, We Are Miracles.  Holy shit is it funny.  The album stream is now available to those that pre-ordered.

A special thanks to the kind folks over at Exotic Fever Records.  I ordered War on Women's record and the label sent me a bunch of free records along with it.

My brain is fried with all of the new records that have been coming out over the past few weeks.  Zig-Zags, Ty Segall, J. Mascis and Gaslight Anthem.  Whoever says new music sucks has no idea what they are missing.

The clear vinyl for Melt-Banana's Fetch album has finally started to circulate on the internets.  Last I had heard the label gave up on the clear vinyl due to manufacturing issues.  I guess they got that figured out.  Good for us.

The Melvins will be releasing Hold It In on October 14th.  The only pre-order I've seen for it so far has been on the Amazon for the mp3.  No CD or vinyl as of yet.

Le Butcherettes' Cry Is For The Flies will finally get a vinyl release on September 30th.  There seems to be different artwork for the Ipecac release than what was used for the thumbnail artwork on the download from earlier this year.

The two CD Japanese import version of Boris's Noise album can be found for an almost reasonable price.  This is also on the Amazon.  I called around to a few local record stores and they were unable to get it from any of their distributors.

The OFF! show went off without a hitch the other night.  No insufferable drunks invaded my area to ruin the evening.

The RVIVR/War On Women/Zeitgeist show a few weeks back was a good time out.  Due to a rather nasty cold/fever I had to miss RVIVR but War On Women certainly won me over and Zeitgeist was even better the second time.

If you've got an extra $450 laying around, there's a purple Dinosaur Jr. turntable for sale in their merch store.  $450 and it's not even direct drive.  If I want a purple turntable that badly, I know how to use paint.

***Update*** Apparently quite a few people had an extra $450 laying around.  The purple turntable has sold out.

The Worlds Scariest Police Chases track on the program can be found here.  I was unaware of Unfuckwithable until recently.  What a pleasant surprise that was.

The Batman: Assault On Arkham DVD is out.  Kevin Conroy is back as the voice of Batman.  Hooray.

Thanks for listening.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.

Episode 72: Shazbot!!!

Greetings Dear Listener,

Given the tragic event from earlier this week, we pay a small tribute to the giant that was Robin Williams.  Dammit.

In honor of Sleep releasing The Clarity for Adult Swim, the entire playlist for this episode involves the word "sleep" in some way or another.

Zeitgeist will be playing on August 18th at the Union Project.  They'll be playing with War On Women and RVIVR.  The show starts at 7.

OFF! will be in town on August 23rd.  I will definitely leave the house for Keith Morris.  Fuck the drunks.

Ty Segall has a new record coming out in a few weeks.  Manipulator is available for pre-order at Drag City.

Sub Pop will be releasing Sarah Silverman's new album We Are Miracles on September 23rd.  Hooray!!!  The vinyl is limited to 750 copies so get your pre-order in.

Get Hurt by The Gaslight Anthem came out this week.  I haven't had the chance to sit down and focus on it but I liked what I heard from my first pass at it.  The strange thing about the record is the album artwork for the deluxe version.  It looks like large pendulous balls.

See?  Balls.

The Hitchbot experiment in Canada is something that would never happen in America.  That robot would have been destroyed or sodomized or both within the first hour.

Aaron McGruder, the creator of The Boondocks, has a new show on Adult Swim.  It's live action and it's called Black Jesus.  And it's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.  If you thought The Boondocks was offensive, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Punk-Stank, the sponsor from last episode, has returned again to sponsor this episode.  Many thanks to Stank-More Industries for having faith in this humble program.

Thanks for listening.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.

Nanu Nanu.
