Paris 1919JOHN CALE (not to be confused with JJ CALE or JOHN CAGE) was one of the founding members of The VELVET UNDERGROUND, and kept himself plenty busy in the decade following his split from that band in 1968.  In addition to producing some of the most important and influential rock recordings of the late 1970s (like PATTI SMITH’s Horses and The STOOGES first LP) he had quite an amazing and productive solo career.  This episode of GE plucks many of the highlights of Mr. CALE’s LPs from that era for your listening pleasure.  Hail the Godfather Of Punk, fellow music geeks!

SlashIn the early ’80s, Slash Records was putting out the bands that mattered from the punk/hardcore scene that was picking up steam there, like X, FEAR and the GERMS.  But it also was on the cutting edge, pushing bands that might be called “roots rock” now like the BLASTERS and RANK & FILE, and psychedelic/garage bands like the DREAM SYNDICATE, the VIOLENT FEMMES and the GUN CLUB.  All these bands are featured on a remarkable compilation record from 1983 entitled Slash: The Early Sessions.  Hear this entire LP plus selections from early Slash recordings with running commentary by host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse.  Get that La-La Land itch, fellow geeks!
