Both forms of pure delinquency - subbed show; 12/11/2012

Subbed for Mr. Mick Mucus of The Chicken Years this past Tuesday evening. Here’s what I played.

I misspoke during one of the airbreaks – something about Woollen Kits playing in Sacto next week. I was wrong about that – meant that the Woolen Men will be coming to Sacto and playing. All that is happening next Wednesday, December 19th at the Press Club; here’s some info on that.

Don't know life at all - subbed show; 09/04/2012

Subbed the Mystery Surprise with DJ Rick last night. This show includes Call of the Wild doing an amazing riff rip of Devo’sGirl You Want’, a teaser track by the Lamps in anticipation of their upcoming 3rd full length release (OCTOBER 16!), Factorymen bringing you weird sampled Joni Mitchell covers?!?, an incredible minimal synth track by Brotman & Short (which is a serious contendor for minimal dance hit of 2012), and of course some babbling with the infamous Mr. Mick Mucus.

Billy Crystal is the KING! - subbed show; 07/10/2012

Rick and I covered for Trot and Phil of FR(A)T Row last night. This gave us the opportunity to spin a few records of bands that are coming through this area in the next few days and who are appearing at the SS Fest II this upcoming weekend in SF. We also just got back from an amazing wonderful trip to Portland, so some buys from that trip also made an appearance on this program.

I’m really excited about SSII coming up this Friday and Saturday nights in SF. Played the new Spray Paint 7-inch to get folks pumped about it and the other shows Spray Paint is playing in this region during the next few days:
  • Appearing at the Press Club tonight in Sacramento with G.Green, Deep Time, Godspeed 209
  • Playing a live set tomorrow night during KDVS’ Live In Studio A
  • Trekking to SF Friday night for their SSII Fest show at the Hemlock Tavern
More information on these shows can be found on Sacto’s All of these shows are part of a larger summer tour Spray Paint has going on - Info on the rest of this tour can be found here.

Mr. Soriano has put together an excellent line up for the SS Fest II which includes appearances by The Lamps, Icky Boyfriends, Monoshock, and a few other incredible bands. More information on SSII can be found at the SS2 blogspot page (and on the flyer below).

My body is home, buy my mind is still on vacation in Portland – eating delicious food, drinking potent coffee, and not paying much attention at all to the time. So that does it for me right now. Enjoy the program.

Everything she did offended someone... - subbed show; 06/21/2012

This just may be my first successful themed show, which is fitting considering I was subbing KDVS' "Calling All Girls!" - a program dedicated to bringing listeners a mix of new and old songs featuring female vox.  I must admit, I wanted to stray from the theme, but thanks to DJ Rick, we stayed on point.

Fun mix of new/old/poppy/post-punky/weirdo lady tunes. This is going to be a great show to have handy for the upcoming summer road trips we have planned.

Knock Knock will be appearing at the Towne House tonight in Sacramento with Manatee (Slumberland dude's band), English Singles, and Lorelei. More information on this show can be found at Sacto's undietacos site.

Let's just wait and see ... - subbed show w/ DJ Rick; 06/19/2012

A month or so back I received a package in the mail addressed from Melbourne, Austrailia. Had never heard of the sender before and was curious how the sender got my P.O. Box # (only folks that I've bought records from or traded records with have that info). In the package was a CDR entitled Vacant Valley Sampler #1, April 2012. Gave it a whirl in my player and was very pleasantly surprised by what I heard - three tracks, all different, all great. We started off this show with the first track, the band Psy Ants (pronounced like 'Science' I believe). Vacant Valley is releasing a few of this bands tracks (including the one played here) on an upcoming 12-inch entitled "Bit Tongue Prik". Can't wait till its out - definitely looking forward to hearing more of this bands songs. I like the song "Spike" so much that it is a shoe in as one of my picks of the week (eventhough it is not officially out yet).

Still a mystery how this got to me - can't remember whether it was addressed with attn to Malt Duck or my DJ name. Did I trade with someone? Did I give my address out via email request? I think the scariest thing is that my memory is vague - its entiry possible I did get an email and responded with an address. Or maybe the Vacant Valley CEO is buds with Albert's Basement (a store out of Victoria, Austrailia that I have done deals with in the past). All possible. 

My reissue pick of the week has to be the Stephan Eicher "Spielt Noise Boys" Lp. Stephan is the brother Martin Eicher of Grauzone. I think Stephan may have actually contributed to the legendary Eisbar recording (not 100% sure on this). If you want to know more about Stephan Eicher, get this record. It includes a plethera of information in the liner notes. 

I have to give a honorable mention to The Limit reissue. Just happened across it in the KDVS new releases section. Super fun powerpop out of New Orleans circa 1982. Speaks to that teeage girl in all of us who likes dancing around her room in her underwear, singing into a hairbrush .... or is that just me? TMI

No Need to Fear! - subbed show w/ DJ Rick; 05/29/2012

Week two subbing for Trotsky and Phil of The Stompin' Bootboys. They better be careful or else DJ Rick and I are going to get use to this slot...

For this week, two reissues stuck out to me in particular; the Ugly Pop's Arson 7-inch and the Kick's 7-inch on 540 Music. Great stuff! Also really dig the new Teledente 666 7-inch on Sweet Rot which involves frenchie Seb Normal of the band Crash Normal.  Picked up the Artifecal 7-inch about a month ago and this was my first chance to fit it into a set. Surprisingly diverse - 'It's Not Too Late' would make for excellent late afternoon desert driving music. 

Not sure when we'll be back on the air again. The programming quarter is coming to an end soon, which may mean more subbing opportunities. We'll see.

EAT Y'SELF FITTER - subbed show w/ DJ Rick; 05/22/2012

DJ Rick & I decided to pick up a shift last night at KDVS. For me this is one of the few occasions where I have attempted to co-host with someone. Please excuse the goofy laughs (mine!) – I get giggly when I’m in the studio with someone else.

Reissues ruled this show for me; the spot of my favorite record of the week is split between Crypt’s reissue of the Psycho Surgeons Horizontal Action 7-inch and Sacred Bones/Mannequin’s joint reissue of U.V. Pop’s No Songs Tomorrow Lp. Both are great records and worth picking up.

The Fall’s Perverted by Language album has been a rather frequent road trip companion of ours over the past few weeks – so we thought it would be fitting to throw it in the mix. Rick has some fun doing some melody comparison during that set.
