Hi. I hear you play a fair amount of Bertie Higgins on this show? I've mixed my first batch of Piña Coladas and cleaned up my yacht...
Julio P. (host) 10:06:50 PM
Hope you didn't drop your Rolex Yachtmaster overboard
Bama Dan 10:18:20 PM
Nice opening set.
Bama Dan 10:19:52 PM
And that was before hearing Fearless Iranians from Hell!
Julio P. (host) 10:26:07 PM
Thanks. Should all be sorted now....
Bama Dan 10:26:49 PM
LOL, was just going to say that this playlist is a bit wonky...
Julio P. (host) 10:27:08 PM
haha yeah don't know what the heck happened there
Bama Dan 10:27:26 PM
Hadn't heard Eyesore before. Really like this!
Julio P. (host) 10:29:09 PM
Lots of under-appreciated punk from Japan.
Bama Dan 10:30:15 PM
I just hadn't explored it. Some of the post punk stuff, but not straight punk.
Julio P. (host) 10:30:44 PM
It all gets kinda repetitive at a point. Though I'd say the same about any hardcore punk scene.
Bama Dan 10:30:54 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:31:28 PM
*looking at you, Boston and DC*
Bama Dan 10:32:03 PM
Bama Dan 10:35:57 PM
It's great to hear memory music like this (Killing Joke)...I love it...but I really enjoy hearing you play new music like Amyl and the Sniffers on your show.
Julio P. (host) 10:36:45 PM
Thanks. Pre-kids, I had much more free time to dig out new music. Let's see what 2022 holds.
Bama Dan 10:37:05 PM
Good stuff, I'm sure!!!
Julio P. (host) 10:39:04 PM
That's the hope.
Bama Dan 10:48:52 PM
Uhhhh...I'd never presume a request...but since we've talked about it lately, any No Wave coming up tonight...?
Julio P. (host) 10:49:04 PM
Bama Dan 10:49:14 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:49:19 PM
Bama Dan 10:59:02 PM
There really needs to be a "Let It Be Imagined" released.
Julio P. (host) 11:01:58 PM
Like the de-Phil Spectorized release McCartney put out years ago?
Bama Dan 11:03:19 PM
Yes! That's what I'm talkin' about!
Bama Dan 11:03:45 PM
('Cept it was released in early 2021)
Julio P. (host) 11:04:24 PM
Let It Be... Naked
Julio P. (host) 11:04:35 PM
I think is what it was called.
Bama Dan 11:11:34 PM
Wow. Awesome request.
Julio P. (host) 11:12:00 PM
It was from last week's chat.
Bama Dan 11:13:12 PM
That's right...John George...yep.
Bama Dan 11:19:25 PM
I LOVE that Cop Shoot Cop had two bass players, and no lead guitar! I just found this out!
Julio P. (host) 11:23:24 PM
nice. I feel like there was another notable band with the same set up.
Bama Dan 11:30:30 PM
I'm like you...don't see a real difference in EBM and electronica, but OK
Julio P. (host) 11:30:46 PM
haha agreed
Bama Dan 11:37:50 PM
Tasty release from Liars. No pun intended. :-/
Julio P. (host) 11:38:22 PM
Quite the departure from their early 2000s dance-punk days.
Bama Dan 11:51:33 PM
For some stupid reason, I love that from now on, you always have to clarify "Bob Weston" from Bob Weston.
Julio P. (host) 11:52:14 PM
you did this! hahaha
Bama Dan 11:53:01 PM
Ha ha ha! I plead insanity.
Julio P. (host) 11:53:37 PM
How I feel after each HeH show
Julio P. (host) 11:54:18 PM
And that's all she wrote!
Bama Dan 11:54:43 PM
Thanks, Julio. Catch you next week!
