In this week's first set, I play the title track from The Myrrors most recent album, Hasta La Victoria (as well as a couple of bands I think are likely influences on their sound: Sweden's own Harvester and Hills) as a way to preface my review of their recent Portland show. In short, I enjoyed it, but thought it was a little on the short side (it lasted only about forty minutes, which is kind of paltry for a headlining band - especially one with a penchant for sprawling improvised freakouts).
In the middle set, I play Portland's own Wooden Indian Burial Ground's blown-out take on Dead Moon's Dead Moon Night. As you're probably aware, dear listener, Fred Cole of Dead Moon passed away recently, and since pretty much every other DJ on HoS has this week exhausted their catalog paying tribute to this local legend, I thought I'd join in with this rather "spacified", if you will version of their signature song.
Also thrown in to the mixed bag of the middle set is Bitchin Bajas, the band that has emerged from the (I assume) now-defunct (or on extended hiatus) CAVE, and a song from their new album Bajas Fresh, named for my favorite Mexican fast food chain restaurant (pretty much entirely due to their salsa bar - a throwback to the 80s, when Wendy's and numerous other fast food places had fresh bars of some form or another, until the Rajneeshi cult had to go and ruin things by poisoning a salad bar in the Dalles with anthrax).
