Broadcast KCRW 631 | Henri rollins
Fanatic! I don’t know what the calendar says and I don’t really care. As far as I’m concerned, May is the start of summer. May, June, July, August, these are the summer months.
It is early Saturday morning, around 0042 hours. I just shut down the system overnight. I watched Alan Vega Mutator’s new album tonight. Its good. We have a track from the album next week. I haven’t heard the whole new Dinosaur Jr. album yet. Hopefully a copy will be at the mail pickup point. I can’t wait to hear it. I only checked the two songs that the press person allowed me to have before the release date.
About two hours ago I played the new Civic Future Forecast album. I’ve had the digital tracks for a few weeks and they’re great but the vinyl songs are so much better. Really solid album from this great Australian band.
Sweeping Promises album info.
Dree Leer info here.
About an hour ago, the great Dave Ruffy from Ruts / Rut DC wrote to me and told me about a live event they are having on Mondays at 8:00 PM. England Time. I hope to verify it. Here is the information about it.
A few weeks ago Danny Elfman wrote to tell me he had finished a new album and asked if I wanted to hear it. Of course. It’s called Big Mess. I listened to it twice. There isn’t a second in it that isn’t hectic and really great. He sent clean tracks to the radio so that we could put them in the playlist. He just sent the 2LP pressing test and it’s really great. So tonight we start with the Big Mess tracks. Here is an address to find out more.
Hope you like the tunes we have put together for you. I was up until late last night to finish next week’s show. Once I sequenced everything, I played the songs in order from start to finish and I think it’s a good song.
Please get vaccinated and STAY FANATIC !!!
