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.

CaseworkerToday we have have nice balance between very young and older bands. From the old guard, we have The Fleshtones with their new album Leave of Talent. Koja and Disciplin A Kitchme are back with a brand new single and a new line up that includes a harmonica. Legendary punk band from San Pedro The Last are also back with their new full length album Danger which has been announced several times in the past seven years and now it’s finally out. It contains some of the older tunes that were planned for their unreleased album Look Again in 1980. In our last show we had John Petkovic with Sweet Apple and Dave Swanson with a live recording with his Rainy Day Saints. Both of them used to be in Death of Samantha. That band (without Swanson, but with the original bass player David James), reunited for several shows in the past two years and now they put out a double lp with entitled If Memory Serves Us Well which is a recording of their band practice before hitting the concert halls. New bands today are Cretin Stompers from Memphis (via Brooklyn) and Caseworker, lead by a nice couple Eimer and Conor Devlin, kind of a mellow California band like Mellow Drunk or American Music Club. Speaking of them, we have two news: Mark Eitzel recorded an album in Ray Davies’ Konk Studios in North London and their original producer, drummer and guitar player Tom Mallon passed away. We pay a special tribute to him today. And finally, we have two very young bands from the Cincinnati/Covington/Newport area – The Yugos and The Debauchees. Dan Stuart from Green on Red gave them some really generous compliments – so we check them out.
