Double J Show #04   27–07–14


Well, it looks like our time together is drawing to a close. I hope you have enjoyed the ride. Of the four shows, I think this is my favorite.

If you were a fan of the great band Bikini Kill, Kathleen and Kathi from that band have a new thing called the Julie Ruin and it’s great. There is an album called Run Fast and a brand new single, a track from it starts the show. I saw them a few months ago, so great live.

I think you can have real impact with how you arrange songs. Team Doyobi going into Mississippi Fred McDowell really works for me!

It has always bugged me that I have never been able to find the original version of Crime & the City Solution’s song Adventure re-released on CD to make it a little easier to access but we brought it to you. I like the version on the Room of Lights but it was the first one that grabbed me so many years ago. I was very lucky to see them and years before, see the Birthday Party, giving me two opportunities to see Rowland S. Howard rip it up. What a player.

As I promised a few weeks ago, we check out Deadboy & the Elephantmen and track from their We Are Night Sky album. Why they never committed this one to vinyl I will never understand.

The Blind Willie McTell track, This Is Not the Stove To Brown Your Bread is one of my favourite songs of all time. I wanted to leave that one for our last show. Same thing with the Need’s Let Them Eat Valium. Really cool single without a lot of information on the band. One of the members contacted me a few years ago. I think he was living in Thailand as a teacher! Anyway, great track, pulled out of the ether and played for me years ago by music bloodhound Ian MacKaye of Fugazi.

This broadcast hopefully bounces all over the place in a good way. I think musical variety and radio show as killer mix tape is a great way to go. This is what we have tried to do here.

It feels like we have only started but suddenly it is done. I hope you dug the shows my brother in sonic jihad, Engineer X and I have prepared for you this month.

I hope you never stop listening to music. The more the better. When you have music in your life, it’s never over. Thanks. Raw Power.
