Today we begin with the new single from Gyasi. Then we check out the new supergruop with ex members of The Inbreds, Sloan and The Super Friendz: Tuns. Cool Ghouls have a fantastic new record At George’s Zoo. Israel Nash Gripka is back with the new record and so is Daniel Romano (yes again!). Sculpture Club from Salt Lake City announces new album and we have a new tune from Vlatko Stefanovski (former boss of the legendary Yugo rock act Leb i Sol). Speaking of Leb i sol, their late period drummer and a beloved character from the Yugo rock scene, Dragoljub Djuricic passed away and we pay respect to him at the tail end of the show.

We have some new names today. Kitten is a new band, lead by Chloe Chaidez, consisting mainly of teenagers and very young people. They are picked by a big label and sound really great live. Us older folks in the audience were taken by their faithful covers of Joy Division and Stooges. The Spits come from Seattle, they have this classic Ramones sound and they have several records out already. Their fifth LP just came out. Jamie McLean is a guitarist from New Orleans. He was associated with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and now he has his own band and a new record called Time of My Life. We have another new singer songwriter in our show today, his name is Israel Nash Gripka. Although he is from New York City, his sound is very traditionally oriented. We also have Thee Oh Sees and Ian Moore with new releases. Nick Lowe is back with a new album and his old band Rockpile released some live recordings from 1980 on a new CD.
