We have a special guest joining us for this episode. DJ Evolution stops by to aid in assembling the playlist. We keep the musical mood light and have some fun while doing it.
Iggy Pop has done a few radio shows on the BBC. Luckily there is an online source for our listening pleasure. They can be found here. Along with hours and hours of Henry Rollins' radio output.
The shows heading to town this spring are getting interesting. The Sword will be here on March 3rd. Tinariwen will be here on April 1st. And the Julie Ruin will come to town on April 11th. Brimming with excitement am I.
April 8th will bring us a new OFF! album titled Wasted Years. Hooray. There aren't any pre-orders listed yet but I'm sure that will change in a few weeks.
Against Me!'s new record comes out on January 21st. Anti-Flag and the Gaslight Anthem are recording as well. 2014 will be an interesting year.
Rise Against's Siren Songs Of The Counter Culture has been given another vinyl pressing thus lowering the value of my record collection once again. Oh well.
The internet went bonkers when Judas Priest was referred to as a death metal band on The Simpsons. Metalheads with nothing else to do but bitch on the internets through a fit. At some point people need to realize that there are these things called jokes and a cartoon may tell these things called jokes from time to time.
I made a rather successful trip to the comic book store the other day. I came across the anthology of Frank Miller's run on Daredevil. If you want gritty crime stories this is the book for you. These stories are where Frank Miller hit his creative stride and reinvigorated a great character that was almost discarded by Marvel. Don't let a shitty Afleck movie ruin Daredevil for you. That character has more depth than that awful script could handle.
I also brought home the Surfing Batman action figure. Here's what it looks like:
Justice League: War comes out on DVD on February 4th. It's an animated adaptation of the first few issues of the Justice League when it was rebooted under the New 52. Here's the trailer for it:
Thanks for listening.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
