Greetings Dear Listener,
Satan rolled a tear this week when we lost Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. In this episode, we pay tribute to this great six string samurai. He will be missed.
The playlist is chalk full of Record Store Day finds from a few weeks ago. I'm still waiting for the on-line prices to come down to pick up the few things I missed.
Ready To Die by Iggy & The Stooges is officially out. We let rip with the title track. The record is different but a good different.
The Roky Erickson track you'll hear is the b-side from the Mine Mine Mind single released by Light In The Attic Records. From what the was written on the sleeve, they will be working with Roky to re-release some of his back catalogue. I am suffering from sweaty-palmed anticipation.
There are a great many happenings over at Dischord. They are releasing an eight song album titled Nites of Midnite by the band Red Hare that was produced by J Robbins. The pre-order is up now for a May 21st vinyl release and you'll also get an immediate download. It's been a while since Dischord has released something that sounds like this. It has merited multiple listens over the past few days.
The Fugazi Live Series is in full swing and they have added a handful of Pittsburgh shows. There's something extra special about hearing the recording of a show you attended. At least there is for me. The search functions on the site allow you to search by city so go download a show from your town.
Dischord is also distributing a new photo book by Lucian Perkins. It's titled Hard Art, D.C. 1979. The book contains pictures taken by Lucian during the early days of the DC music scene and also has essays by Henry Rollins and Alec MacKaye.
You can go to dischord.com for all of your Dischord and Dischord accessories.
Until next time.
Thanks for listening.
