— I was heavy on the heavy rock today, with the early 70s American rockers Bang (from Florida) and Sir Lord Baltimore (from Brooklyn), more modern head-banging from Lima Peru’s La Ira de Dios, and the utterly neglected gem of a hardcore record by NY’s Action Swingers, Decimation Blvd. (1993).

— I had a satisfying Dutch back-to-back with the all-lady early punk band, The Nixe, followed by something from The Ex’s Turn album, which I believe is my favorite by them, and that’s saying something. Terrie Ex from The Ex made a second appearance at the end of the show with a recent album of duet material with the great Dutch free jazz/improv drummer, Han Bennink, who at the age of 66 can still drum your ass into the dirt.
