    Howdy folks,

    So, I'm sure you missed me terribly last week when I had a sub. I admire your strength to make it through another week without hearing me play songs I like on amateur radio. You should be given a medal of some type. Like this one.


    That's a little medal. It's yours.

    Anyway. The stuff I played last night:

  • My Double-Dare!

    24 Jun 2008, 01:35 by intpmann

    aniaki recently dared me to listen to nothing but Celine Dion's Similar Artists radio for a solid week. I whined and complained about it, but in the end I stepped up to the plate and took it like a Mann. One of the things that kept me strong and sane (besides ogling the pics of the hotties that were singing) was the knowledge that I was going to double-dare my tormentor, and that my revenge would be sweet. So here it is...

    Aniaki, I met your dare with balls of steel: if you have the ovaries of steel that you say you do, you will meet my dare. And my dare is this: you will listen to a different Similar Artist radio each day of the week from the following list, in any order of your choosing. The only exception is on Thursday, when you must listen to the Thursday Night Party Hat Party tag for that week. The list is:Rebel Meets RebelFugaziTom WaitsMeat PuppetsDeerhoofHank Williams
    Good luck, my dear! Hopefully you'll actually enjoy some of this...

    Hey there, folks.

    Thanks for taking a break from obsessively watching your dashboard to see what your friends are listening to/what concerts they’re attending/seeing if anyone left you a shoutbox comment. My playlist appreciated the attention. It has low self-esteem.

    I was out of town last week, having flown to NYC to see the Boredoms “77 Drum” performance. Frankly, it was totally awesome. I’m sure you’ve seen the youtube videos, blog pictures, writeups, etc. Good times. Anyway, I missed my show last week, and came back this week with a “People who have voices that your little sister would probably complain about” edition. Enjoy.

  • My life with Swamptrash

    22 Jun 2006, 10:05 by nibus

    Back in the late 80s/early 90s, my musical world revolved mainly around gloriously theatrical flour-abusers Fields of the Nephilim - a perfect complement to the bleak brownness of the north of Scotland where I grew up. While I was walking around in my long coat and scarecrow hat, on my radar appeared another band which was particularly popular amongst my friends - it was called Swamptrash. At the time I thought they were just a local band; I didn't even know what kind of music they played.

    Fast forward about a year, I'm sitting in someone's rusty Mini Metro in Whithorn, southwest Scotland - where you can stand on the burnt stumps of The Wicker Man's legs, trivia fans - and the tinny car stereo is playing an equally tinny but very fast psycho bluegrass version of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire. It's fantastic and it's by Swamptrash. I instantly resolve to buy everything they've released when I get home. According to some guide to Scottish music I remember picking up, they have an album (It Makes No Never Mind) and an EP (Bone).
