What a beautiful mess of an album (a triple LP at that!). Joe Strummer's lyrics were influenced by the unfortunate stabbing and death of a parking valet. Senseless.

Julio P. (host) 9:56:11 PM
It's Thursday again!?
Bama Dan 10:01:43 PM
You know...some of us look forward to this!
Julio P. (host) 10:02:01 PM
I certainly do. Hello, again!
Bama Dan 10:09:44 PM
Nice opening cut! New music, with a live performance in mid February...
Bama Dan 10:10:14 PM
But are they the loudest NYC band...?
Julio P. (host) 10:10:22 PM
Fingers crossed it doesn't get canceled.
Julio P. (host) 10:10:44 PM
I was going to see Wire at 191 Toole before the world shut down...
Bama Dan 10:11:18 PM
Oh man, Wire would be incredible.
Julio P. (host) 10:12:04 PM
Although I likely would have missed the show without COVID, as my second was born the week Wire was scheduled.
Bama Dan 10:12:27 PM
Priorities, Julio.
Julio P. (host) 10:12:31 PM
Bama Dan 10:17:25 PM
Had never heard any Mogwai before. Very cool.
Julio P. (host) 10:17:45 PM
It's moody music.
Bama Dan 10:18:22 PM
Well, there's that.
Bama Dan 10:33:23 PM
Really love Cornell's vocals here.
Julio P. (host) 10:34:46 PM
Same. Apparently that is the cut producer Rick Rubin played to members of Rage Against the Machine to convince them to form Audioslave.
Bama Dan 10:49:24 PM
The Catalyst: Not having much luck here...a "funk/jazz quartet"...
Julio P. (host) 10:49:37 PM
Yeah, that sounds right!
Bama Dan 10:50:13 PM
Yeah, I definitely want to know more about this band!
Bama Dan 10:50:20 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:50:51 PM
Apparently they've released three albums through bandcamps!
Bama Dan 10:52:21 PM
But back to Melvins...very good stuff.
Julio P. (host) 10:52:45 PM
Can never go wrong with Melvins
Bama Dan 11:41:10 PM
I know that lots of ppl rave about London Calling, and I love that album, but Sandinista does it for me.
Julio P. (host) 11:44:04 PM
I prefer "Combat Rock"
Bama Dan 11:45:10 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:45:28 PM
Know your rights
Bama Dan 11:45:52 PM
That's why I park it here on Thursday night.
Julio P. (host) 11:46:15 PM
Bama Dan 11:48:37 PM
Was also great to hear some old Magazine. I was late to the game, with The Correct Use of Soap.
Bama Dan 11:49:25 PM
Speaking of which...
Julio P. (host) 11:49:31 PM
Pretty sure Cheron played Magazine this past Saturday.
Bama Dan 11:49:57 PM
She did. But I missed her show. UGH.
Julio P. (host) 11:50:19 PM
Bama Dan 11:51:24 PM
I know. There are hosts that I literally rearrange my life around, and she is one of them. You are one of them, too.
Julio P. (host) 11:51:53 PM
Oh, stop, you.
Bama Dan 11:52:08 PM
Yeah, I'll shut up now.
Julio P. (host) 11:52:24 PM
Bama Dan 11:53:31 PM
Missing her this past Saturday was a major deal for me. I hate when that happens.
Julio P. (host) 11:53:49 PM
Next time.
Julio P. (host) 11:55:56 PM
THanks for listening!
Bama Dan 11:57:04 PM
Thanks, Julio.
