RADIO BROADCAST #478
Fanatic! So behind on listening to records. I’ve been working two shifts a day finishing a book. This one will have around 400 scanned images. It’s amazing how the hours just slip away. I’m almost there. I’m in year two of getting the text together. Almost 100 thousand words came from notebooks and I’m not the world’s fastest person on the keyboard, so I’ve been dragging notebooks with me all over the place and typing from Manila to Lima.
Months ago, I got the 2LP set of outtakes from the Fun House sessions by the Stooges. I finally got a chance to play it two nights ago. I knew it would be great but it exceeded all expectations. Sounds fantastic and the choice of tracks is perfect. If you’ve been thinking about this one, I wouldn’t hesitate.
Last night, I listened to the reissue of Lodger by David Bowie. Even though I have other pressings of this record, I was curious as to what had been done to it. I didn’t get the chance to hear the pressing that came with the big Bowie box set last year as I returned it. I hate to be a downer but I can’t not warn you. This pressing of Lodger, at least on my system, sounds mired in low mids. I don’t know what the strategy was in the mastering.
We have a great show for you this week. Next week will be super cool. Ian MacKaye and I will be swapping stories from the December 1981 Black Flag tour of England. He came along on that one. We made the show when Ian was out here for Coachella. So, get ready for that one.
Until then, check out what we have lined up for this one. We hope you dig it!
