January 26th, 2017

Today we start off with the brand new song from a really cool new record for Bash & Pop. Then we check out another cool song from a band that puts records much more frequently, Electric Six. 1-800-Band is a quartet that comes from Brooklyn – they hired legendary Mitch Easter to help them out [...]

Today we have some big bands that came up with new records recently. Nick Saloman’s Bevis Frond sounds strong on Example 22. Los Lobos rock out with some of the best tunes they made in their long career on Gates of Gold. Electric Six continue steady stream of annual records with Bitch Don’t Let Me [...]

April 9th, 2015

Today we continue listening to the Suicide Squeeze Records compilation with two new bands: four ladies in La Luz and Audacity from California. Out of Ireland comes Goodly Thousands. Terry Manning, legendary producer and engineer from Memphis, with a great solo album from 1969 recorded at Ardent is back with the new, low key album [...]

We open up today with a tune from the brand new Electric Six record Human Zoo. Then we move on and check out new albums for two of the Sonic Youth guitarists which are out now, almost simultaneously. Thurston Moore made a really good one called The Best Day and Lee Ranaldo collected songs from [...]

We 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 [...]

Today 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 [...]

So, 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 [...]

Flashlite #80

April 8th, 2010

Today we have the most recent (and not so new) album by Electric Six and Jimi Hendrix “unreleased” compilation Valleys of Neptune. Cleveland band Easter Monkeys have recently published a compilation record entitled Splendor Of Sorrow Plus. And that song sets off a strange review of Cleveland underground from 80s till today: Resolvers and Scarcity [...]

Here 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 [...]

19. Electric Six – Flashy

January 15th, 2009

It seems like it was forever since Electric Six had their five minutes of fame on British charts. Semi-famous status suits them better. Evidence are consistently wonderful gigs and albums that still sound great (if not greater than ever). Don’t be fooled by deliberately uninventive title of the opening track Gay Bar Part Two. Electric [...]
