Rat Columns

Nice new tunes today from Guided By Voices, Rat Columns, Jay Gonzalez and Autogramm. Leigh Gregory of The Dispossessed and Mellow Drunk is back with a solo record and opening tune on it bears a tribute to Lemonheads in its title. Speaking of Lemonheads, PA musician Fred Mascherino teamed up with Evan Dando co-writing a song together for his band The Color Fred. We introduce Wilding from Melbourne and Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs from Toronto. We close the show today with a small tribute to Zafir Hadzimanov, one of the most interesting early pop and rock singers of Yugoslavia who passed away recently.

Leyla McCallaA couple of new things today. Ty Segall is in action again, putting out a demo version of his last year’s album Twins, now renamed into Gemini. So the concept is now closed, it’s a twin record. He also has a band called Fuzz, but now, to complete the confusion, there’s a different band called The Fuzz, from Memphis, fronted by Hector, supposedly brother of Harlan T. Bobo, although I’m not so sure if it’s really not the same elusive rock’n’roll songwriter. Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett recorded a jam boogie record in 1986 called No End, in which he recorded all the instruments. This came out only now, after 27 years. The rest of the show is bit more conventional. We have a new band called White Denim from Austin, TX and a New Orleans cellist Leyla McCalla who recorded an LP with Langston Hughes lyrics. By the way, the house in which he lived in Cleveland is on sale these days. Also, we check out Evan Dando’s tribute to Tarka Cordell and Lemonheads’ de-luxe reissues. But we start off with Dream Syndicate who had an amazing reunion gig in Cleveland last week.
