Episode 81: Ideas Or The Lack Of Them Can Cause Disease!--Kilgore Trout

Greetings Dear Listener,

If Bill Hicks were alive today, he would have had a birthday this week.

Lemuria played in town the other night.  They instantly made themselves some of my favorite people.  Great band, even better human beings.  Here's a link to order their new single/comic book:  Silver Sprocket.

The White Wives play at The Shop tonight.  The show starts at 7pm.  The Shop is at 4314 Main St, Pittsburgh PA 15224.

The past few weeks have been very good on the ears with new music.  Obliterations and Priests have quickly become two of my favorites.  Priests have a Bandcamp page here.  Obliterations are on Southern Lord and here's an article about the band.

Speaking of Southern Lord, it looks like their webstore has a few copies of Sleep's The Clarity left on vinyl.  The ten minute track is pressed at 45rpm on the a-side and there's an etched b-side.

And speaking of Sleep, Al Cisneros' other project, Om, will be releasing a live album through Outer Battery.  There will be 200 on red vinyl and 800 on gold.

I'm still waiting on my copy of the Velvet Underground's super deluxe box set of their self-titled album.  I was waiting to find one at a friendlier price and ordered one from England.  The place I ordered it from also had Dinosaur Jr.'s Hand It Over on vinyl.  Hooray.

Stankmore Industries returns as a sponsor with a new product that will make all of our lives easier.

Thanks for listening.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.

Episode 80: Crawling Out Of The Black Friday Bunker

Greeting Dear Listener,

Those jackbooted thugs known as Santa Claus and Baby Jesus are bearing down on us mightily.  I'm not sure how much more merriment I can handle and it's only the 3rd.

The trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released over the weekend.  The only thing the trailer did for me was reaffirm my notion that the internet is a racist.  How people can flip their wigs over a black stormtrooper is beyond me.

First of all, it is set 30 years after Return Of The Jedi.  Maybe all of the Jango "Died Like A Bitch" Fett clones died off or took the Imperial retirement offer.  After all, they were on two Death Stars that got blowed up.  Who would still want to work there after that?  Maybe the Empire went trolling for fodder at local community colleges and high schools.  The economy on a desert planet can't be that great.  Beyond the secondhand droid market, where's someone going to get a job?  Fuck it, sign up for stormtroopering and you'll get to see the galaxy.  You don't even need to know how to aim your blaster.  Just blindly pull the trigger and hope for the best.

Second of all, Star Wars isn't real.  Sorry to burst any bubbles but it's not an historical account of anything.  It's a made up story.  Take a breath and shut the fuck up.  Maybe those shitty prequels would have been better if they'd have cloned Django instead of Jango.

AMC has been rolling out clips before Better Call Saul starts up in February.  I am so glad Jonathan Banks signed on for the show.

I damn near forgot that with a new Deerhoof release, there might be a Deerhoof flexi-book to go with it.  The La Isla Bonita flexi-book is out now and is a sight to be seen.  There were only 500 made and they may have sold out by now.  Go to the Polyvinyl site to find out.  Joyful Noise put it together and released another instructional video to go with it.

Recently, there was a joint release between Mind Cure and A-F Records to press Modey Lemons self-titled album to vinyl.  The CD release from the 00's was good.  This vinyl pressing will liquify your brain.

Modey Lemon's House On The Hill demo CDR was also pressed to vinyl by Omentum Records.

Both records can be found at Mind Cure.  Go get them.

Thanks for listening.

Rock over London.  Rock on Chicago.
