Today we have a Velvet Underground tour de force. Death of Samantha play a cover of Rock And Roll in our Live in Cleveland segment, Danny And The Darlean’s play a pre-Velvet Lou Reed tune You’re Driving Me Insane. Also Natural Child participated in the Burger Records tribute to White Light White Heat. That album also saw a deluxe reissue with a lot of previously unreleased material, so we check out one of the songs. Talking about Natural Child, they also have a new record Dancing With The Wolves, which is about to come out. Other good new stuff come from The Cry!. We also check out The Moldes from Peru.
Today’s show is dedicated to a wonderful singer-songwriter and a poet from Ljubljana, TomaÅ¾ Pengov who recorded some of the greatest music in the former Yugoslavia. He passed away last week in the age of 64. His music influenced yours truly in many different ways.

Buffalo Tom were one of my favorite bands in the grunge boom that deservingly had a taste of success in the first part of the nineties. They were on hiatus for awhile, just to return with an overlooked, but very nice album Three Easy Pieces in 2007. They sounded like the time stood still. The new album is scheduled later this year and while we wait for it, they offered a free EP on their website. We also have Tomaz Pengov, an immensely talented singer-songwriter from Ljubljana who made in 1973 one of the greatest LPs in Yugoslavia. He is back with a collection of oddities, outtakes and recitations entitled Drevo in zvezda. The CD is accompanied with a book as well. Another singer-songwriter, Kurt Vile is also here with a new album. He currently gets a lot of praise for his work. And for something completely different, we also have a brand new single for Personal And The Pizzas.
