Description

For any of my listeners who are tired of the bleepy-bloopy electronic music I often play, this show is for you, since it is wall-to-wall R.A.W.K. (OK, there's one bleepy-bloopy song toward the end, but that's it, I swear). Yep, for Rocktober, I give you enough rock to knock your socks so far around the clock that the government will have to set up an committee, ad hoc, to block the... uh... you get the idea. Anyhow, the first set features a retro-garage track by Frankie & The Witch Fingers, a neo-garage track by Flat Worms, and some... I don't know how to describe it exactly but it's great by Gökçen Kaynatan, who in the mid-70s was responsible for most of the interstitial music on Turkish state-run television.

The middle set is for fans of dooooooom metal (the Black Sabbath-y sort of doom metal, not the Sunn O))) variety) with some heavy, heav-y, heavvvvy offerings from Fvzz Popvli (so heavy their "u"s are sharp and pointy like "v"s, old Latin style), Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats (from the recent reissue of their first album) and ORB (not to be confused with bleepy-bloopers The Orb). Also, there's some heavy shoegaze from New Candys and some heavy minimalism from Emptyset. Heavy, man, heavy.

The last set features some near-Krautrock-ish psych-prog from obscure sixties Bay Area group Fifty Foot Hose (whose name sounds like the punchline to a dirty joke), some Middle-Eastern influenced weirdness from Boredoms offshoot Saicobob, and a visit from show stalwarts Expo 70, with a track called Moon Raga that... pretty much delivers on its title.
