Black Math HorsemanIn our new show, we introduce singer songwriter Chuck Ragan, from Florida, with his new record Till Midnight. He writes in a more traditional format and another new name, Bart Davenport writes catchy power-pop tunes. He comes from Oakland, CA, and has quite a following in Spain. From Australia, we check out Nervous Trend and in London, Vacilando 68 record label sends us Piper’s Son. Black Math Horseman appeared on the Nirvana tribute In Utero, In Tribute, In Entirety, but in the mean time they managed to break up. In the end, we finish off with Scruffy The Cat, which was a cool 80s college rock band from Boston. Their singer Charlie Chesterman passed away on November 4th last year, and we pay a tribute to him.

FreddaUnfortunately, we say goodbye to two great people who influenced rock’n’roll greatly. Alvin Lee from Ten Years After left us on March 6th and George Shadow Morton, producer of the Shangri-Las left us on February 14th. But, we also have a survival story. You probably already heard that Slim Dunlap, the guitar player of The Replacements suffered a stroke last year and he survived it. Although the recovery is slow and expensive, he is holding tight. His old bandmates decided to have a small reunion and make an EP which would directly help Dunlap with the recovery costs. The limited edition EP auction did very well and and now it is scheduled for the regular release as a download and a sound carrier. We hear one of the songs from this record today. We also have one new name today for us, her name is Fredda and she’s from France, but with ties in Tucson AZ. She will be a part of Vacilando 68 promotional campaign this year at SXSW. Another new name is The Go from Detroit. They nurture the retro 60s sound. Guadalupe Plata are also back with the new record and Derek Deprator is also back with a very nice instrumental tune. Probably the most exciting new thing today is King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard with their western conceptual record called Eyes Like The Sky, narrated by Broderick Smith of The Dingoes.
