Notes on this week's program:

-- "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is certainly now moog muzak--no way around it.
-- Soledad Brothers live track got lots of positive feedback.
-- The Guy Who Stole You Bike (Sundays 2:30-4:00 pm on WPRB) says that I will like the new Coachwhips more than I did the Dan Melchior record on In the Red. That would be a good thing. We shall see.
-- I like that Apes CD.
-- Enough already with the Pop Group sound-alikes (here meaning Dance Disaster Movement).
-- My mom says she liked the new Nick Cave track.
-- Azita - subtle, good. Lady from Scissor Girls. On the album name, from the OED:

[a. Gr. running in contrary ways, f. opposite + running.]
The process by which something becomes its opposite, and the subsequent interaction of the two: applied esp. to the adoption by an individual or by a community, etc., of a set of beliefs, etc., opposite to those held at an earlier stage.

-- Kudos to Sugar Hill for the lovely early 60s Willie Nelson demos. Lovely.
-- "Earwig O'Dowd" by Marc Riley and the Creepers is a great song.

Notes on this week's program (new feature for the website):
-- Harry Lubin theme music is ace. 1958 TV show. Creepy.
-- Amon Tobin track is hot.
-- New Nick Cave sounded good to me.
-- Minutemen "Double Nickels" is still the boss.
-- I've heard better Circle than the live stuff, but it's still good (Finnish band).
-- Yoko Ono with Clapton, oh so sick.
-- Both new Henry Flynt records are incredible. Hooray to Locust for putting this music out.
-- Two times in a month I've played Beethoven. No regrets. If you've never listened to Furtwängler conducting Wagner, Brahams, or Beethoven, do yourself a favor and do so.
-- Gary Wilson emailed me this past week and made my day.
-- I actually liked the Echols track from the Detroit Techno album. Go figure.
-- Went to see Lost Sounds this week, picked up the Final Solutions 7", which features the guitarist from Lost Sounds. Good Killed By Death, also quite dirty.
-- New Gary Lucas is beautiful.
-- Still don't know how to pronounce Jorge Ben, although someone did call and tell me. My memory needs work.
