The Blackwater FeverHere we are at the new episode of The Little Lighthouse. Next three Thursdays will be a short break for The Little Lighthouse as I’m leaving for a small trip. We will pick up where we left in June. But, let’s see what we have today. Toady we introduce The Blackwater Fever, a new drum and guitar duet from Australia. We have a new Thee Oh Sees 45 and The Rats reissue. The Rats is an early eighties band for Fred and Toody Cole of Dead Moon. Also, check out an excellent 60s Yugo-beat from Bis-Bez! We have a new band Evil Cowards for Tyler Spencer of Electric Six and Dirty Shame. I saw Electric Six again, and they are still 100% fun. I also saw Mike Watt and his Missingmen playing live at The Grog Shop. It was a very playful show that saw Watt in an excellent mood. They played a lot of classic punk songs, several of which we revisit in this show in honor of old Watt. He has just recorded the new opera with Tony Maimone in New York City and it will hopefully come out very soon.

Jack OTwo of the greatest 80s college rock bands are back with new albums and we check those out in this show. Sonic Youth with The Eternal and Lemonheads with Varshons. Varshons is completely consisted of covers and one leaked out before the album is actually out; Leonard Cohen’s That’s No Way to Say Goodbye. It’s a duet between Evan Dando and Liv Tyler. This is also a good chance to remind ourselves on how great Cohen is, so we check out two more songs that he wrote: So Long Marianne and First We Take Manhattan.
