Free LSD Fat Possum 2022

Fourth studio LP from the Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks) fronted hardcore punk band. The album also serves as the soundtrack to the short art film of the same title by the band, with guest appearances on the film by DH Peligro (Dead Kennedys), David Yow (The Jesus Lizard), Don Bolles (The Germs), and more.

10:07 PM
Voivod - Holographic Thinking
Voivod Holographic Thinking N
Synchro Anarchy Century Media 2022

Latest release (and 15th overall) from the Canadian prog metal band. Heavy sci-fi elements throughout, as marks much of Voivod's work. I prefer them to Rush.

10:13 PM
The Jesus Lizard - Chrome
The Jesus Lizard Chrome
Bang Touch and Go Records 2000

Influential 90s noise rock four-piece based out of Chicago. The band's third studio LP Liar celebrates its 30th anniversary this month!

Cherubs - Mr. Goy
Cherubs Mr. Goy
Heroin Man Trance Syndicate 1994

Texan noise rock band. Disbanded prior to the release of this LP, since reunited and have pumped out additional albums. A personal record for the band, recorded in memory of a close personal friend that passed away.

10:29 PM
Melvins - Leech

Gluey Porch Treatments Ipecac 1987

Debut LP from the still active sludge legends. This song was originally penned by Green River and gifted to the Melvins as Green River never played it.

10:31 PM
Saint Vitus - White Stallions
Saint Vitus White Stallions
The Walking Dead / Hallow's Victim SST Records 1985

Despite being SST labelmates with iconic punk bands of the era - and sharing the stage with many of them - Saint Vitus was clearly a doom metal band, with a sound not out of place within the discography of sludgy Black Flag and early Flipper.

10:36 PM
City of Caterpillar - Voiceless Prophets
City of Caterpillar Voiceless Prophets N
Mystic Sisters Relapse Records 2022

Newest release from this Richmond band that had been on hiatus for 20 years. Classified as "screamo" at the time of its original existence. I don't know what that is.

This is the album that turned me on to Fugazi, indie music, and expanded my musical horizons. In my Desert Island Top Ten.

11:06 PM
Hum - Suicide Machine
Hum Suicide Machine
You'd Prefer an Astronaut RCA Records Label 1995

Debut LP from this 90s alternative rock band, with a sprinkling of shoegaze influence thrown in for good measure. The band saw commercial success wit the single "Stars" included on this release, later heard on soundtracks, commercials, and an episode of Beavis and Butt-head.

11:12 PM
Loop - Aurora
Loop Aurora N
Sonancy Cooking Vinyl Limited 2022

Noisy space-rock English band LOOP has released its latest album following a three decade hiatus! From the get-go, this LP has LOOP picking up where it left off with 1990's Gilded Eternity.

11:17 PM
TV Priest - Bury Me in My Shoes
TV Priest Bury Me in My Shoes N
My Other People Sub Pop Records 2022
11:24 PM
My Bloody Valentine - Soon
My Bloody Valentine Soon
Loveless Rhino/Warner Records 1991

Much written about highlight of the shoegaze genre. Lyrics were indecipherable upon its release, despite the band claiming it spent more time writing lyrics than the music itself. Some bandmembers claim they don't know what was being sung despite this!

11:31 PM
VR SEX - Walk of Fame
VR SEX Walk of Fame N
Rough Dimension Dais Records 2022

Latest release from this Los Angeles-based experimental post-punk act. Think it's going to crack my Top Ten of 2022...

The Other Side of Make-Believe Matador 2022

Seventh studio LP from the Manhattan-based modern post-punk band active since 2002. The band cites this cut as a personal favorite off this LP.

No More Shall We Part (2011 Remastered Edition) Mute, a BMG Company 2001

11th studio LP from the group and follow up to The Boatman's Call, recorded after Nick Cave's treatment for alcohol and heroin addiction. My favorite from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Pulls at my emotional heartstrings.

11:52 PM
Mick Harvey - Sad Dark Eyes
Mick Harvey Sad Dark Eyes
Two of Diamonds Mute 2007

Long-time collaborator with Nick Cave. Prolific songwriter in his own right, with several solo albums (this being his fourth) and independent film soundtracks.

This mosquito hovering about is keeping me awake.
Bama Dan 10:02:24 PM
How dare that mosquito...
Julio P. (host) 10:02:50 PM
Whoa, Black Betty, Bama Dan!
Bama Dan 10:03:10 PM
Hola, Julio!
Julio P. (host) 10:06:40 PM
Fancy seeing you 'round these parts.
Bama Dan 10:10:30 PM
Oh come on...you know I dig your program! Just a wee bit late for us CDT peeps. :-)
Julio P. (host) 10:11:16 PM
haha, I tease. I'll be filling in for SMC later this month for something different.
Bama Dan 10:12:05 PM
Awesome! You give good guest host!
Bama Dan 10:13:12 PM
I can't think of a better host for Saturday Morning Cafe than you or Kurt...
Julio P. (host) 10:13:21 PM
you're too kind
Bama Dan 10:13:33 PM
For real.
Bama Dan 10:24:08 PM
Were Cherubs associated at all with Big Boys or The Dicks? Or a different scene?
Julio P. (host) 10:26:53 PM
Haven't come across anything link those bands to Cherubs. If anything there are slight associations to the Butthole Surfers.
Bama Dan 10:27:41 PM
Just thinking about the Texas connection, is all.
Julio P. (host) 10:29:21 PM
For sure.
Bama Dan 10:36:14 PM
Really loved that Melvins cut. And yeah, there's a delay on the stream....
Julio P. (host) 10:37:28 PM
Those early Melvins releases are something else. So much sludge.
Bama Dan 10:43:07 PM
But I really dig them! LOL
Bama Dan 11:03:03 PM
Loving tonight's show, Julio, but it's Bedtime for Bonzo. G'night.
Julio P. (host) 11:03:20 PM
Buenas noches. Thanks for sticking around.
Bama Dan 11:03:34 PM
Buenas noches.
