Holly Golightly After two shows when we reviewed some of the older “material”, in this show we have a chance to hear some of the hottest new releases of the current moment.  Gentleman Jesse from Atlanta, GA and Judge Bone from Finland rock the (Light)house hard for the first time. Brimstone Howl, exciting new band from Nebraska (of all places) has a new album called We Come And Peace. They’ve been around for awhile, but we have them at this show for the first time (mark the calendars!). Eagles of Death Metal have a brand new album called Heart On and while it’s not surpassing the previous one, it’s still very exciting. Lucinda Williams has a new record called Little Honey and it’s probably the most electrified LP she ever recorded. And Little Lighthouse appreciates electricity more than anything else. On the other hand, Holly Golightly has gone acoustic on her new album with The Brokeoffs and that’s cool with us too. And, last but not the least – The Replacements put out the final four of their re-issues, fully equipped with cool bonus track, three of which we sample today.

Pierced Arrows First 30 minutes of today’s show is very loud and the the other half of the show we mellow down easy with some folksy type of rock… at least if you consider young savage Westerberg strumming his acoustic guitar mellow. We do. So, yes that second block begins with his “protest” song Bad Worker that’s one of the “extras” on the newly re-re-released expanded versions of first four Replacement records. We check them out pretty carefully in today’s episode. The we had also the new Billy Bragg’s double CD which he calls Mr Love and Justice. Steve Wynn recoded an album in Ljubljana, so we check that out as well. In the first half, we have the new band for the former Dead Moon members Fred and Tony. They call it Pierced Arrows. We also check out new records for Wedding Present and The Ettes. Also, I got a chance to shake hands with legendary Tommy Ramone who played a show with his bluegrass duet Uncle Monk in Cleveland. So, the show ends with one of the songs that I recorded on my voice recorder that night. So, yeah – a lot of new stuff today. Dig in.
