Have you heard the news, it’s all over town. If you ain’t heard it boy, you better sit down. Er, um…sorry about that. I shouldn’t use 70s-era Bob Segar lyrics to draw your attention, even though it sure got the boys to take note of Betty Lou; amIright?!?!?!?! Of course I am.

This year I have recommitted to featuring my ever deepening obsession with live music. The second hour features live tracks from Dylan. Garcia, Bob Marley and more. Also, some brand spankin’ new Ty Segall. I counted and I see that I now own 20 Ty Segall LPs and 8 45s. Do I get a medal for something like that?

If you’ve never heard of Wylde Ratttz before, then join the club. I just “discovered” this super group recently and I really have to wonder what rock my head was under when these guys appeared 20 years ago. In short, the band was a side project featuring Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) Mike Watt (Minutemen), Ron Asheton (Stooges), Don Flemming (Velvet Monkeys), and Sabir Mateen. They mostly covered Stooges songs, Pretty Things, and couple of originals. The music was also used for the movie Velvet Goldmine, with Ewan McGregor taking on the lead vocals. There was some hype about the fact that on the original soundtrack Mark Arm’s vocals were replaced with McGregor’s to the dismay of the band. You can read about that here. Again, where the hell was I in 1998 when all of this was happening? Oh right, I remember. Ugh, that’s for another post, on another blog, in another universe, in another dimension.

Malderor- Training Newbies, Drinking Cuttys, Punching Nazis

January 30, 5pm

Last week’s show was typically wide-ranging, covering everything from local psych acts like Spiral Electric and Peacers, through to local hip-hop from the Stunna Boys.  Plus the occasional protest song, and some punk rock 45s.  Malderor was training the new folks from the Sheesh Radio show, Deathwish was onhand to sample a new flavor of Cutty Bang, and then for some reason we got into the morality of punching Nazis.  Freeform radio at its finest.

Malderor- Fundraising for Annie S, Plus More Cutty Bangs

January 18, 5pm

In the first hour of today’s show we feature a bunch of bands that are playing Thursday at the Bottom of the Hill, for a fundraiser to help offset the costs of Annie Southworth’s cancer treatments. Annie is a beloved local pillar of the music scene, and folks are turning out to help her with her (insane) medical bills, which are going to get much worse now given the gutting of the ACA and her obvious “pre-existing condition.” But there are some great bands playing; The Dodos, Peacer, and Sarah Bethe Nelson. In the second hour we get into some tracks from the soon-to-be-released soundtrack to Trainspotting 2. And I bought Deathwish another Cutty Bang, so download the podcast to hear how that turns out!  (Oh, and almost all of Cheap Hooch turned up early to try to derail my show with their over-the-top partying!  It’s a wild-one!)

1. Jonathon Larsen- “Rent: The Musical” Soundtrack (no shame)
2. Smashing Pumpkins- Siamese Dream
3. Pulp- Different Class
4. Manic Street Preachers- The Holy Bible
5. Chemical Brothers- Dig Your Own Hole

7. Radiohead- OK Computer
8. Various Artists- No Alternative (recently rediscovered and still pretty into it)
9. Belle and Sebastian- Tigermilk
10. Elvis Costello- Best of

Noting the sad lack of female artists here/internalized sexism but I do want to point out that the No Alternative compilation introduced me to Patti Smith which was pretty invaluable later on….

Malderor – Psych Rock and Cutty Bangs!

January 11, 12pm

Today was the beginning of Rainpocalypse 2017 or something, and it was pouring down buckets as Malderor made his way to the station. He prepared a slate of mopey, droney, shoegaze-y psych-rock, and he’s joined in the studio by DJ Deathwish, who is slightly worse-for-wear.  Malderor stopped and bought Deathwish a “Cutty Bang” from a nearby ghetto liquor store, and a radio show ensues.  (In the last hour we get away from the psych a bit, and play a bunch of goofy covers. Stay tuned for that!)
