I’m sleep deprived, so don’t hold me too accountable for what follows. …I’m trying hard to think of something witty to say. Hmmm. Who knew sleep was so damn important?
Ah yes, my show this week! I was able to get to my Fats Domino tribute. You probably only know him through his seminal hit “Blueberry Hill”, but his sound helped define early rock and roll, rhythm and blues, with a touch of jump swing. His stride piano style was always evident in the New Orleans sound, whether he was playing one of his own songs of love and heartbreak, or a carefully chosen cover. I grew up in a household where my dad (born 1941) played a lot of blues, jazz, and rhythm and blues. Fats played a central role in my early musical development, which I’m certain I didn’t realize until he passed away a few weeks back at the age of 89.
The balance of my show features new music from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard (their third full-length release of 2017!) and Boris. There’s some long noisy jams via Aluk Todolo, a jazzy cover by Sex Mob, a “weird” cover by The Residents, stoner spacey jams from Sleep, and an Op/Ed from John Lennon. There’s more as you’ll see below. Also, I gave tickets away to see Fu Manchu. Did you know that I often have tickets to local shows I give away on my show? You didn’t?!?!?! Tune in and WIN!!! There’s so much winning. You’re going to get tired of all the winning, I promise you.
I’ve been spending too much time on Twitter lately. There are links below.
