Laura CantrellWe follow Laura Cantrell’s career since the inception of this show and she has a new record out called No Way There From Here. Another band that’s been with us since the first year of this show is Electric Six, although back then their name was Wild Bunch. We watched them go to the top and they have one record a year without breaks almost all the time. The new record is called Magnum. James Jackson Toth, aka Wooden Wand is also back with the new record backed by his band World War IV from Birmingham, AL. The most interesting novelty this time is a new singer songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. His name is Ben Mason. He re-recorded the Zombies classic The Odessey And Oracle and renamed it into The Odessey Odyssey. I think it’s an awesome idea to take one of the most intricate records and show that you are capable of repeating it note to note – it’s a great way to make people pay attention to your own work.

Eamon McGrath – Enduring Love;
The Gants – Smoke Rings [1966];
The Trashed Romeos – (You Can’t Blow) Smoke Rings;

TustaToday we say goodbye to one of my personal heros. Tusta was a singer of a great punk band KUD Idijoti who put out a series of three excellent EPs back when I was just starting to be interested in the underground rock. For me, Idijoti was one of the most exciting things that happened musically worldwide, although they were just a small local Yugoslav band. Unfortunately, cancer took Tusta’s life sometime last week and it shook me deeply. As if a family member died, although I didn’t even know him personally. Today show is for Tusta. We hear some his music and we also check out some of the new music as well. Cowbell is a duet from England. Electric Six have a new live record, and they visited Cleveland. Along, they brought a new band from San Diego called Little Hurricane, also a duet. And we saw an interesting new Cleveland band, Dead Sweaters. Plus Dick Valentine has a new solo record. And The Legs, Eric Oblivian’s old band, has their recordings from 2000 finally out on a record.

SmileSo, Beach Boys finished Smile… I don’t know exactly what to think of it. This album probably never even had a clear vision, and it’s unclear how you can complete it with chaotic pieces that the Boys recorded back in the day. Still, the concept behind it is so intriguing that it will hunt the rock’n’roll forever. It hunts me too. In this show, a portion of the playlist is delivered in Smile format, with a lot of cutting and pasting. Check it out from 14:28 to 28:16 in part 1. The rest of the show brings you new tunes from King Khan and Electric Six. We also have new names Jerusalem and the Starbaskets, Barrarecudas, and The Excitements. Giant Sand has a reissue of Chore of Enchantment and there’s a tribute out there for Ian Dury.

Another great news is that we’re now syndicating in Kragujevac again! The oldest and furthest reaching radio station over there, Radio Kragujevac on 94.7 MHz picked our show for their program and the scheduled times are Sundays from 4 to 5 pm and on Tuesday from 2 to 3 pm their time (CET). We’re glad to be back on air over there.
