Coming to you live... IN MY PAJAMA PANTS: REDUX!
Bama Dan 10:01:29 PM
So..."Pete and repeat..."?!?
Julio P. (host) 10:01:52 PM
were in a boat and they all drowned
Bama Dan 10:03:18 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:03:35 PM
Bama Dan 10:04:24 PM
Sure Julio. We could ask for pics from staff members from the studio to prove this.
Bama Dan 10:04:55 PM
Armory Park or Hotel Congress tonight?
Julio P. (host) 10:05:38 PM
Armory Park. Congress has a late night dance night that would bleed over into the show. I'd try to compete sonically and have to bust out Sunno)))
Bama Dan 10:06:00 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:06:21 PM
Or maybe the show is pre-recorded and this is a bot
Bama Dan 10:06:46 PM
Yes, well, I always have to wonder...
Julio P. (host) 10:07:00 PM
Welcome to the matrix
Bama Dan 10:07:06 PM
Bama Dan 10:08:05 PM
Seriously, I'm glad you're starting off with some new music. Never heard of Boris
Julio P. (host) 10:08:31 PM
This is waaaaaaaaaaaay more accessible Boris. Like very restrained
Bama Dan 10:08:54 PM
Kewl. Will delve deeper offline.
Julio P. (host) 10:09:25 PM
The LP NO is the companion piece to their latest W. When listened together, spells out NOW
Julio P. (host) 10:09:31 PM
No joke there
Bama Dan 10:17:20 PM
Really loved the background vocals...different...on the Pop 1280 tune towards the end. Were they playing in PHX when you missed them?
Julio P. (host) 10:18:20 PM
Manhattan. I was out there on a work trip. Decided to stay in my hotel room and laze. And, yes, the vocals are noticeably different on that cut compared to other Pop. 1280 ditties.
Bama Dan 10:19:15 PM
Oh wow...east coast. Nice. But too bad you missed them. I'm never heard of them until now. Thanks for sharing with all of us.
Julio P. (host) 10:19:29 PM
:thumbs up emoji:
Bama Dan 10:19:30 PM
Bama Dan 10:22:01 PM
This is a great show so far, Julio. Really love all of the new music. Nicely done.
Julio P. (host) 10:22:21 PM
Gracias. But wait, there's more!
Bama Dan 10:22:38 PM
LOL. Never would have figured that...
Julio P. (host) 10:26:27 PM
And there will be for the next few weeks. So much new music I slept on from 2021. And new Napalm Death out tomorrow.
Bama Dan 10:26:46 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:29:32 PM
New Author & Punisher drops tomorrow, too...
Bama Dan 10:30:36 PM
Sure sounds like Clan of Xymox is using a Mellotron to me...?
Julio P. (host) 10:30:48 PM
Bama Dan 10:31:16 PM
It warms my ❤️, I tell ya...
Julio P. (host) 10:31:27 PM
Bama Dan 10:47:03 PM
The main thrusters of the El Paso band are the rhythm section: excellent bass player, and a good drummer.
Bama Dan 10:47:48 PM
*this El Paso band
Julio P. (host) 10:49:19 PM
Neither were part of At the Drive In (bassist and drummer)
Bama Dan 10:49:31 PM
Bama Dan 10:49:54 PM
I'm way into the bassist.
Bama Dan 10:52:17 PM
And by the way, I'm open to whatever Bob Weston is doing these days, you know?
Julio P. (host) 10:52:59 PM
hahaha, I'll have to see what he is getting up to these days
Bama Dan 10:53:28 PM
Ha ha ha...seriously...really enjoying the show tonight.
Julio P. (host) 10:54:04 PM
Glad to hear it. I was itching all week to get back to the studio to unleash tonight's show
Bama Dan 11:02:11 PM
So many shades of King Crimson in this band Earthless....
Julio P. (host) 11:02:59 PM
Definitely. My fave of this year so far.
Bama Dan 11:03:15 PM
Wow. I never had head of them.
Julio P. (host) 11:03:23 PM
Bama Dan 11:03:33 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:03:39 PM
Been around for a while. Just discovered them a week or so again
Bama Dan 11:04:20 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:05:31 PM
And this is just the 20 minute opener!
Bama Dan 11:08:03 PM
Guitarist is sorta-Fripp...but the bass is definitely Wetton, and the drums are pseudo-Bruford....
Bama Dan 11:08:15 PM
I love this.
Julio P. (host) 11:08:19 PM
Anyway, here's the Melvins!
Bama Dan 11:08:31 PM
Bama Dan 11:15:56 PM
Good news about the Meat Puppets live at 191 Toole. They put on a great show. I saw 'em live in 1985...FREE...at UCLA...lol :-)
Julio P. (host) 11:16:42 PM
Was that the show you snuck into?
Bama Dan 11:16:53 PM
Ha ha...nooooo....
Julio P. (host) 11:18:27 PM
I'm not a narc. It's okay if you did
Bama Dan 11:20:21 PM
Look. I'll readily admit to stealing food back in the day! I was a college student! But I will never admit to stealing tickets to seeing bands!
Bama Dan 11:20:30 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:21:05 PM
Bama Dan 11:22:48 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:27:20 PM
I've gone dumpster diving once or twice with a friend that was HEAVILY into Crass, so...
Bama Dan 11:30:49 PM
I'm not seeing the comparisons to The Black Album, Julio...?
Bama Dan 11:31:09 PM
What am I missing?
Julio P. (host) 11:31:09 PM
Maybe not so much on that one? That's just where my mind went.
Bama Dan 11:32:36 PM
I mean...I love this...The Phantom Limbs. Great cut. Just not sure about The Damned, is all.
Julio P. (host) 11:33:06 PM
I get it.
Bama Dan 11:37:08 PM
Loving this Wire cut!
Julio P. (host) 11:37:28 PM
Can't go wrong with Wire. That's what I say!
Bama Dan 11:37:36 PM
Bama Dan 11:51:12 PM
I really love the first two Psychedelic Furs albums...and yeah, I saw them on their second album tour in San Francisco.
Julio P. (host) 11:51:55 PM
They always roll through Tucson and I always wonder if it's still worth seeing them live.
Bama Dan 11:52:56 PM
Yeah, good question! I wouldn't know about that today...wouldn't know whether I would want to see them now, you know?
Bama Dan 11:53:32 PM
They were great back in the day. But now? Not sure.
Julio P. (host) 11:56:33 PM
How I feel. Thanks for the company!
Bama Dan 11:57:02 PM
Thanks Julio. Next week!
