Fanatic! I’m sitting at a desk in a room in a hotel near the airport in Brussels, Belgium. It’s Friday night. I have an 0400 hrs. up to head to the airport. For the last while, I’ve been listening to the tracks for our show and I think we’ve got another great one.
Fanatic, have you heard the OCS album Memory Of A Cut Off Head? It just came out on Castle Face. All I have out here is WAV files. Hopefully, the vinyl is waiting for me on the other end of the two flights I’ve got tomorrow. It’s another great one from Mr. John Dwyer. Can’t wait to hear this one on vinyl. I’m sorry we don’t have any of this new album for our December shows but I had to make these in advance, due to schedule.
Track 14, hour 2, JJ Burnel - Euroman, really cool track. Ever since I heard it, I wondered if it was a one-off, from an album, but I kept forgetting to do some research. Days ago, in Luxembourg, I looked it up and it’s part of an album called Euroman Cometh. I checked it out online and the album is great from start to finish. It’s on United Artists, released in 1979. I found one online. Cool record! I wish I had heard it sooner. I ran into JJ at Heathrow airport I think it was, a couple of years ago. He and the Stranglers were on their way to the same festival I was. This album is worth checking out.
I just wrapped out of a film called Dreamland yesterday. One of the people I worked with was a very talented young filmmaker named Yannis Meys. I got a chance to see one of his short films. It’s really good. I asked Yannis if I could share the link and said yes. So, here it is:
It’s four minutes. I hope you get a chance to check it out. I’m looking forward to seeing what he does next.
Fanatic, I hope you’re getting a chance to get some listening done. I can’t wait to get my turntable going.
Listen to records and STAY FANATIC!!!
