Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #11: Heavy Horses, Foolish Frogs, and Uncool Friends

Monday, February 3


Gung Hay Fat Choy! Or is it kung hei fat choi? Either way, it’s the year of the horse, folks. The horse imagery in this first set gets heavy quick, then wrestles itself away and breaks free. After quick detours through Tropicália and Brit punk paraphernalia, we drop into cycle-delics, head first, where contact highs are inevitable. Listeners, take care…

W!C!P! also pours a little of it’s 40 on the ground for Pete Seeger, Christopher Jones, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Thanks, fellas.
