Episode Seven: Public Service

Should have been posted last week. Lets just say life ain't been panning out lately. Argh.

Public service? Yeah, I'm stretching a bit. I'm working on the Masters thesis and am a bit brain fried. I've actually forgotten my PIN number three times this month, a number I've had for seven or so years! Public service refers to the public service announcements I scattered through the show, starting with the old Cold War era "Duck and Cover," as well as appearances by Alf, Clint Eastwood, Cookie Monster, and more. Listen here. As far as the tunes go, here's the rundown:

Mike Oldfield- "Hergest Ridge" Hell Preachers Inc- "Time Race" Writing on the Wall- "Bogeyman" Vampires Sound Incorporation- "Kon Kubination" Temple of Bon Matin- "Coloring Book" Ofege- "Gbe Mi Lo" Rolling Stones- "Too Much Blood"(dub version) Nik Turner- "Horus" This Heat- "Horizontal Hold" Sky Saxon and the Seeds- "Colorized Bottles" Loop- "Straight to your Heart" Wooden Shjips- "Aquarian Time" Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound- "Drunken Leaves" The Monks- "I Hate You" Velvet Underground- "Heroin" Roky Erickson- "Don't Shake Me Lucifer" Flower Travellin Band- "Satori II" Boris/Merzbow- "Walrus"

The gem of the week is the Rolling Stones "Too Much Blood," a song that appeared on Undercover back in 1983. This is the dub version of the song, and it is completely freaked out. It's a great jam from a hugely under rated album.

Episode Six: Avoiding the Kool-Aid

Apologies for missing a week. I had technical difficulties last Tuesday that led to the loss of my podcast file. Frustrating, to say the least.No worries though, I'm back on track this week. No theme this time around. The episode title refers to the ominous Jim Jones outtakes that lead into the equally disturbing Comus track kicking off the show. Here's the complete track listing:

Comus- "Drip Drip" Daniel Higgs- "Living in the Kingdom of Death" Fire on Fire- "Amnesia" Big Blood- "Wrinkles and Ribbons" Circulus- "Miri it is" Wooden Shjips- "Motorbike" Lobby Loyde- "Relgon Hall" Achim Reichel and the Machines- "Beautiful Babylon" Giant Brain- "Ausgestzt" Loop- "Mother Sky" The Deep- "Pink Ether" Fire- "Could you Understand Me" Edgar Broughton Band- "Death of an Electric Citizen" Zior- "Entrance of the Devil/The Chicago Spine" Endless Boogie- "Smokin' Figs in the Backyard" Pat Metheny- "Electric Counterpoint (Part 1)" Diagonal- "Semi Permeable Men-brain"

I'll be moving in a few weeks, so I'm not sure how many more shows I have left. No sense in dwelling on that- I have plenty of material to still get to. Enjoy!

Good News Bad News

The Good News:
Missing Link Records opened today! Well, sort of. They opened from noon to 6 in order to see how an actual business day would play out. The store looks great. The records were even better. Matt and Adam are still working out some kinks and getting more records and cds ready for the shelves. Word is they will be ready for the masses some time next week. Don't forget about their grand opening celebration next Friday!

The Bad News:
Last night's episode of Psych Out! will not be available via podcast. There was a technical mishap while saving the file, and the file was ultimately lost. Damn.
