School sucks the life out of my bones, but no matter what, I’m here to bring y’all the good stuff. Started off tonight with the first studio release from Philly’s Long Hots and moved into Eugene Chadbourne & Sunwatchers covering Ayler and the Minutemen live at Union Pool...this combo has an LP coming out soon on Amish Records. Congotronics from Konono Nº1, to Chicago with “Slow Bern”-ing psych from Cave, pass thru Rugby w/ Spacemen 3, hit LA with 100 Flowers, then time travel back to Chicago via Houston with Rapeman’s cover of ZZ Top's "Just Got Paid".

Patty Waters started the second hour, and we heard an old track from the newly reunited Espers plus a an early Siltbreeze 7” from Bardo Pond, and then, my new faves, Midnight Mines. MM has a 7” out on I Dischi Del Barone, also host to Sweden’s Leda and her track “Japanese Key” which we heard before some prepared guitar from Kevin Drumm (back to Chicago zones), and a Rothko inspired Loren Connors piece. I left the fire burning thru out the night w/ one of my favorite jams from MV & EE (alongside PG Six), their version of the Dead’s “Fire on the Mountain” from August 18th, 2012.
