Fanatic! Is there anyone out there? Anyone at all?! I think I know where everyone in LA was at least an hour ago. I was in Amoeba and it was packed. Have you ever had that experience where even the parking lot below the store is full and you’re in line on the street to get in? That was me. It was worth it. It’s always worth it.
I didn’t think it would be all that great an idea to dip too deeply into the Christmas thing but I thought you wouldn’t mind the odd holiday nod here or there. I just got back from working in Europe. Had a good time there. Making good use of the record player, that’s for sure. Listening to the first Obsessed LP, reissued on Relapse. Sounds great.
OCS album Memory Of A Cut Off Head is fantastic on vinyl. Run do not walk to this one.
I think you know your music and don’t need the likes of me telling you that we have a great show here.
Not sure if anyone will be listening to this show, holidays and all but for anyone who’s hangin’ around, hopefully this is a worthwhile gathering of tunes.
Be careful out there and STAY FANATIC!!!
