Warfrat

        Friction, rust, salt air, lust
        Passion in its final heat
        Real life with its final cheat
        California’s falling falling…
                …into the ocean

        100 Flowers, 1983

We have a very special show today. Vitus Matare of Warfrat Grammophon sent us a new compilation record entitled Son of Warfrat Tales, Last Notes From Pompeii. The original release was scheduled for 1990 and it was intended to be a souvenir for the bands that hung out at Lyceum Recordrs in California. Vitus put together this comp to help raise money for the rent at Lyceum, but only a few cassettes were copied back in 1990. 30 years later, 300 copies of a CD were printed, so I guess it’s still a bit of a souvenir! But it’s really great to hear this album. We use it as a guide to remind ourselves of some other truly important compilation records that defined the 80s underground and they are very much related to Son of Warfrat Tales. Original Warfrat Tales from 1983 is an obvious one to refer to. This album introduced to the world a stunning list of Los Angeles bands that in many ways shaped the 80s rock scene. Another related compilation that we’re going back to in this show is Keats Rides A Harley and the Happy Squid Sampler both from 1981 that predate Warfrat Tales. These were organized by the members of Urinals. All these, augmented with great extra material, are available on the secondary market as CDs (although maybe not so easily). Since Son of Warfrat Tales contains slightly newer bands, we also refer to the legendary Radio Tokyo Tapes organized by Ethan James (criminally, still not reissued…) And finally, Vitus says don’t forget Hell Comes to Your House (Bemisbrain 1981)… no we won’t! Finally, big thanks to Vitus for sending us this new, ultra rare disc!

Lelee

Today we begin with two bands based in Slovenia: Čao Portorož and Lelee. In addition to their local tongue, in the best tradition of Slovenian bands, they also mix in Serbocroatian. And Lelee also does lyrics in Macedonian. That sort of panslavism is welcome at the Little Lighthouse. Another thing welcome is Todd Rundgren. Two recent bands released songs that sound a lot like his tunes: The Nude Party from North Carolina and Green Seagull from London. Son of Gene Clark, Kai Clark has released a tribute to his father and we check it out today. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard has a new single. We close the show with two tributes to fallen heroes. Emitt Rhodes has passed away on July 19 and Peter Green six days after that.

Norma MacDonald

Today we start off with the new album by Nashville’s own Margo Price. Everybody is talking about it these days! Lynn Miles and Norma MacDonald are new introductions from Canada. Over in UK, we have Hannah White and The Nordic Connections, as well as the duet Snowgoose with Jim McCulloch and Anna Sheard. Marianne Dissard from Tucson AZ covers a Steely Dan song and Josephine from New York City has a new single. We also introduce Weyes Blood and Natalie Laura Mering, clearly later than most other relevant rock shows, but their music fell through the cracks for me last year and I’ve just figured out how much her voice reminds me of the legendary Jadranka Stojaković.

Other than that, we check out the new tunes from the 80s underground legends: newly reformed Divine Horsemen, Smudge, Dream Syndicate and The Jayhawks, including their renegade member Mark Olson, with his most recent partner in crime, Ingunn Ringvold. Cherry on top are newly discovered vault music from possibly some of greatest rock’n’roll bands in the history: The Rolling Stones, The Replacements and a project of the Yardbirds members Keith Relf and Jim McCarty called Together.
