Barrence WhitfieldThe first part of today’s show is mostly filled with the new tunes. We start off with the new music from Barrence Whitfield, who continues his furious comeback with a new record called Under a Savage Sky. Then we introduce a new duet from Cleveland Wesley Who, with a live recording of a Prince song. We also introduce Slates from Edmonton, Alberta in Canada – compatriots of Eamon McGrath. Plastic Pals from Sweden are back with the new single. The second part of the show dominates with music of several folks that we lost in the recent days: country music singer Lynn Anderson, record producer Bob Johnston, Flesh Eaters guitarist Stuart Lederer and Eddie Hardin who had a tough job filling Steve Winwood’s shoes in Spencer Davis Group, but also wrote one of my favorite tunes ever Time Seller.

Tommy KeeneAfter two vinyl junkyards in a row, we go back to the new (and some old) tunes. Tommy Keene is back with a new record and Dom Mariani (ex Stems) teamed up with another Australian cult musician Greg Hitchcock in a new line up called Datura4. We also introduce two new names for us, Cyanide Pills from Leeds and Destination Lonely from Bordeaux, Toulouse in France. The latter band has an awesome cover of an obscure 60s garage rocker Sun’s Going Down by the Dutch combo called The Outsiders.

GutterballThis is another one of our Vinyl Junkyard editions at the Little Lighthouse. In Vinyl Junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. This time we have two more albums from the nineties. Nineties were a time where LPs were being phased out on the market in favor of CDs. Still, some important record also saw vinyl versions. Today we have the first album for Gutterball and The Fall-Outs compilation album Here I Come and other Hits. Gutterball was a supergroup consisting of Steve Wynn (ex Dream Syndicate), Bryan Harvey and Johnny Hott (from House of Freaks), Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders) and Bob Rupe (Silos). It was formed at the moment where Wynn’s solo career was not performing so well, House of Freaks were critically acclaimed, but also failed to chart in the post Nirvana era. Long Ryders and Silos broke apart, so the quintet went into the recording studio over in Richmond with a lot of good songs and great new-found energy. The resulting album was astonishing. Fall-Outs had a string of perfect singles in the late 80s and Estrus Records put them all together in ’93 on a great compilation record.

Mouthful of ViolenceThis is one a Vinyl Junkyard edition of our show. In Vinyl Junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. Usually the stuff comes from The Blue Arrow Records in Cleveland. This time we have two albums from the nineties. Nineties were a time where LPs were being phased out on the market in favor of CDs. Still, some important record also saw vinyl versions and today we bring you Mouthful of Violence by Big Trouble House and Moontime by Anastasia Screamed. These are not just some random albums from the era, but also some of my favorite records ever. It’s a real pleasure to introduce them to you, since the bands and the records went fairly unnoticed at the time and are often missed by the critics too. Big Trouble House are from Minneapolis, lead by the guitar player Phil Harder. After the band failed to leave much mark on the scene, he moved on into making music videos. Anastasia Screamed were from Boston. They were lead by Chick Graning. This band also failed to make much fuss on the scene, so he formed Scarce which became almost famous with their single All Sideways, but Graning suffered from an aneurysm and had a bad case of amnesia. Scarce reformed recently.

Ultimate PaintingToday we start off with an Australian band The On and Ons who serve as a backup band for Paul Collins when he plays over there. But they are also a band on their own and The On and Ons Calling is their new record. The band is consisted of former members of Zeros, Stems and Hoodoo Gurus. This also made me look up Hard-Ons. It turns out, they recently had a new record called Peel Me Like An Egg, which I have overseen until now. Scott Reynolds recorded a new album a couple of months ago in his bedroom, so we check it out. Ultimate Painting are a duet from London (Jack Cooper and James Hoare) and we check them out for the first time here at the Little Lighthouse. Todd Rundgren recently teamed up with two Norwegian artists Emil Nikolaisen and Hans Peter Lindstrøm for an unusual new album called Runddans.

SherwinToday we introduce Sherwin from Lancester, PA. We also check out some new tunes from Barreracudas (Atlanta GA) and Step-Panther (from Sydney AU). Good old Keith Richards has a new single and it sounds amazingly fresh. The second part of today’s show is dedicated to my friends Žikica and Skoča who lost a good home to their radio shows, because their radio station was shut down. Those shows are my favorites and I can only hope that they will find a new home and a new way to continue with their work as soon as possible. We also say the last goodbye to Wayne Carson Thompson (who wrote The Letter, Neon Rainbow and You Are Always on My Mind) and the keyboard player Eric Wrixon, the founding member of Them and Thin Lizzy (although he stayed with them only long enough to record early singles).

For some reason, I received a bunch of new records which are clearly inspired by the kraut rock – a German rock movement from the early ’70s which contained long, repetitive pieces, sometimes taking over the entire side of one LP. The new bands obviously have multiple influences, but I think that the following bands are truly influenced by kraut rock: Hypnodrone Ensemble from Berlin, Kinski from Seattle, Ancient Sky from Brooklyn and King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard from Australia. At the end of the show, we hear a live tune by a new, young, up and coming duet from Cleveland, Archie and The Bunkers.

Faust – It’s A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl;
Kinski – Powder;
Disciplin A Kitchme – Manitu S;
Hypnodrone Ensemble – Elliptical Hyperbolic;
Ancient Sky – Protection;
King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard – Infinite Rise;
Archie And The Bunkers – 1970 (Live in CLE).
