well, just cause i havent posted in a month...

dont mean i cant pimp my own radio show! (actually mugshot asked me to, so dont playahate):

3 MORE WEEKS: 4/28, 5/5, 5/12 [all Fridays, including tomorrow]
1-3PM (note new time); 4-6pm in philly
90.1FM in the bay
listen online: http://kzsulive.stanford.edu/
call in: 650 723 9010

having just read roe v. wade for the first time ever, ive been inspired to play exclusively rock by women for the next two weeks. this week (4/28) will be riot grrrl from the pacific northwest (bikini kill, excuse 17), next week will be early nineties lady pop grunge (kim deal, tanya donnely, kristen hersh). the last week who knows, but probably the foundations of chick anger (patti smith, x, etc.).

also, for my money, im gonna go ahead and let y'all know that there was this band. they were called clearlake. they made picture perfect depressing brit pop. a few years ago. now theyve dropped a new album, and guess what? its as good as the last one. actually, it sounds exactly the same. which is an amazing thing. for the mugshot in you, this satisfies the sweet tooth.

Yes! Every song Clearlake makes is genius. You can also get there first album, Lido, which is every bit as good as Cedars (the one I burned for stark after I saw them open for the Decemberists in early early '04 when they weren't cool yet) and Amber.

If I can make a request, Pacific Northwest riot grrrl music didn't get any better than Mia Zapata from the Gits. She freaking terrifies me.

Mugs burned me a copy of Clearlake's new album. Where'd that go?

I'm an unrepentant folkie reared on a healthy diet of Seattle grunge. The single most formative musical experience I can recall is staying up late into the night on April 4, 1994, taping Pearl Jam's live concert broadcast beamed worldwide from the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, and into my bedroom on 93.3 WMMR, "the home of rock 'n' roll." When the first tape ran out, I taped over Vanilla Ice for the rest of the show. Still have the cassettes, too.

Oh, and two days after the Atlanta show, Kurt Cobain shot himself in the head.

i know the boss: if you still listen to tapes, youd be psyched to know that ive got snow's "informer" cassingle collectin dust...want it?

No thanks, but the fact that you used the word "cassingle" totally just made my week.

I'll take it! I have no idea what that guy is saying, but that song is legendary.
