Hell’s Kitchen Radio #444: To Death Do Us ROCK!

July 21, 11am

Download the Stump Speech HERE
Listen into all my shows here!

I saw a meme the other day that made some comment about paying attention to those who are introducing new music into your life. Yes, please do. I also read something a while ago about once you reach the age of 30-something you stick with the music that made the most impact on you, sometime in your teens to 20s. Really? That’s it? Some crappy, lowest-common-denominator non-offensive music that plays over and over on your favorite radio station, or Spotify playlist? What do you do when Spotify tries to suggest something new to you? Do you swipe left…or right? I wouldn’t know; 

I don’t have Spotify. Are you shocked by this new found knowledge? Did you think I got all of my musical inspiration from what Spotify suggests to me? I listen to radio. Non-commercial radio to be exact. KFJCKALXKPOOKALW (on the weekends), WFMUKPFA (especially Wednesdays 8-10pm). And I listen with Shazam close at hand. 

There are times I have stopped the car so I can Shazam a track. How much do you love this app? However there are times when it’s stumped. That’s mostly when I’m listening to KFJC, the station that stumps Shazam! HA! That’s when I call them up and ask them what the hell that just was that blew my mind?!?!?!

I don’t think I stumped Shazam tonight, but I gave it the old internet radio try. My buddy Eric came by the house today with his bass and we rocked out to GFY, along with some other AmylStooges, Flat Earthers, Butthole Surfers and Oh Sees tunes. That was super fun. I really need to get loud like that more often. So let’s start with some Amyl and the Sniffers, shall we? There’s also new music from David McMurrayPaul LearyAngel Bat Dawid, and Kate Vargas. Also, Mudhoney’s 30th anniversary remaster of Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge arrived on Monday, so I threw that in for good measure. Or good fudge. 

There’s something for everyone here, even you who still listen to the same music you’ve been listening to since high school. Don’t be afraid. Dive right in. If you don’t like what you hear, just wait 3-7 minutes and check out the next tune.

Enjoy.

Hell’s Kitchen Radio #443: Bad For The Hell Of It

July 14, 9am

Download the Juju HERE
Listen into all my shows here!

I was told by a dear friend that I’m not a bad guy, I’m just not all that good either. HA! I love it! That’s Hell for ya. I’m just pretty good at being pretty bad. And I enjoy laughing at that, and myself, often. I birthed John Hell in August 1994, when I co-founded Radio Free Burning Man. I’m sure I wrote about this somewhere else on this blog. We were all KFJC DJs and I didn’t want to use my airname, Reverend Dah Wave, for the event in the desert. So I needed another moniker. 

I had seen the Rowdy Roddy Piper film “Hell Comes to Frogtown“, a post-apocalyptic tale about a guy who survived the devastation and now needs to save all of these extremely hot women (of course), being held in captivity by the Frog King. I love Rowdy Roddy Piper. He was always my favorite wrestler. Pipers Pit was the best part of WWF on Saturday afternoons. And “They Live” will always be a classic. “I’ve come to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum”. I mean, come on! Anyway, I thought Piper’s name in “Hell Comes To Frogtown” was John Hell. And I thought “Hell YES!”, what an excellent name for RFBM. Ends up his name was Frank Hell. That’s super lame. No. So John Hell it was and it shall remain, even if Discovery Channel decided it was to adult for their precious little cable outlet and changed it to “Helle” for the four hour “Power Tool Drag Races” special. Whatever, I got paid. 

Initially I was thinking Hell would be all in your face; especially for Burning Man. I was purposely insulting to the organization, just to keep them honest. Now that John Hell about to turn 27(?!?!?!?!) he’s much more reserved and sly. I like to poke fun in a more political manner, and to myself. Just what you’ve come to know and love. You do love me, don’t you? (crickets)

As for this show, lot’s of new music, Kate Vargasthe ScientistsAngel Bat DawidGojiraNegativland, and Oh Sees. And everything else is gravy. 

Also, you get a treat, one of my oldest and greatest friends is about to start a brand new show Wednesday’s 10-midnight (Pacific) on Radio Valencia. His moniker is The Alchemist. The show is a mouthful: Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour! The Alchemist is a walking musical encyclopedia. I know you’re going to dig his show. He took over a couple sets in the second hour of this show. I marked it so you know. You’re welcome.

Enjoy.

The Curated Catastrophe – Breathy Vocalists, and Other Stuff

July 3, 3pm

This was a “regular” episode of the Catastrophe, in that we mainly focused on music, and decided to skip the topical content this week. Malderor does have a sort of odd commonality amongst his musical selections, as most of them feature breathy male vocalists in the Mark Hollis/Steve Winwood/John Martyn vein, but that’s not really a “theme” exactly. Whatever, there is good music this week, so check it out!
