Show tracks for Sat. May 19/12

Brilliant! "I want to masticate with you" God I love this band.
Glad to have some new Lovely Eggs to feature.

My dj bag was over flowing with new releases again. And not just singles. There were as many as 7 albums tonight as well. Sadly, we didn't get to them all but we did get to The School & Zulu Winter in the proper Lp Sessions. We also featured Thee Vicars, NZCA/Lines & the new My Bloody Valentine EPs release.
Rumour has it that the remastered MBV albums are out. Although you wouldn't know it around here, not one store in the area has them yet. Are they really out Kevin? lol
The great new singles of the past few shows is really off-setting the extra prep I am being forced to do for the show. Nothing I can really get into just inter office political crap. But the Letters, Splashh, Drop Out Venus, The Vestals & the great Bobby Womack are raising the spirits for sure.

Show tracks for Sat. May 5/12

We open up tonight's show with a couple Spiritualized tracks as there were in town last night. They put on an amazing show as well. Jason and band love Detroit and Detroit loves them right back.

Then we hear that MCA Adam Yauch has past away after his long bout with cancer. The Beasties were certainly a part of my musical upbringing so to speak. I was out of high school when Licensed To Ill came out (it didn't have the same profound impact that it had on the younger teens) but it will always be a fave album of mine. But I do remember Cookie Puss being aired on CJAM in the early days. Those were the good ole days.
So we pay our respects by closing the show with Long Burn The Fire. Their musical legacy will never be forgotten.
