Second part of the show introduces new albums for Bob Dylan, Meat Puppets and Thee Oh Sees.

Elephant BonesWe have four new names in today’s show. Three represent straight forward garage rock. Elephant Bones are coming from my town, Cleveland. Their album Arms is a glamified deal with good lyrics and well informed with history of pop music. Bazooka Falcon are from New York, but sound more like they’re from Sweden. They have some of that rocking sound that we’ve heard from the Hellacopters and Hives. The third in the new line up is The Rain Bonnets, who I know very little about, but they sound like Iggy Pop with a good dose of humor. Greg Koons from Philadelphia also debuts at The Little Lighthouse. His song Los Angeles Looks Prettier on TV is a modern songwriting masterpiece. His tour-list is very extensive, so make sure if he’s visiting your town. Demon’s Claws from Montreal have a new 45 and we check it out today. And, finally – we have waited 30 years for their second lp, but only 5 for their fourth one – Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock and Joe Ely – The Flatlanders are together again.
