Playlist for Your Saxophone is My Guitar
Aired Wednesday 5/14/03 4:00-7:00pm

-The Apes, Dillinger 4, Sonic Youth, 23 Skidoo, Skeleton Key, Woggles, Azure Ray all played by request.
-I saw Kurt Heasley of Lilys play a solo show in Philly last weekend with Greg Weeks, Adrian Crowley, Mazarin, and some crazy man who stalled for a late Heasly with songs about digging ditches. And it was really great, amazing even. The new CD has him playing with a whole backing band and string arrangements and I don't like it nearly as much but the songs are still very good.
-L'infonie + Gentle Giant = prog rock dork city
-That Exploding Hearts song is really good. Reminds me of Cheap Trick and Big Star.
-I've been meaning to play that Sonic Youth record for a while and was just waiting to get a SY request. It's a New York Dolls cover with Kim on vocals. Sonic Youth covering the New York Dolls ends up sounding a lot like Royal Trux!
-The Glass Candy CD is so good. Also, I voted for Ida No in that Playboy internet thing, you know what I'm talking about.
-Add Moving Targets to my list of bands that sound like Hüsker Dü that I think are great.
-Dig how I figured out how to make ümlauts on my computer.
-Risk Relay - good stuff from New Brunswick. Support local music.

Les Savy Fav, White Stripes, Bright Eyes, Policy of 3 were requests. I was psyched for the Policy of 3 request. Along with Policy of 3, I played a couple other Philly punk rock acts from the 90's with Plow United and Kill the Man.

I saw Michael Hurley play in Philly with Espers and Pg. 6 a couple weeks ago and it was incredible. Mr. Hurley seemed surprised and glad that so many people showed up and he appreciated all the requests. He played for forever but every song was memorable.

I like all the stuff coming out on Ersatz Audio records. The Human Hands LP was a good find.

The playlist for 4/30 will eventually go here. I wasn't feeling well and didn't feel like draggin my weighty, archaic "laptop" to the studio. In the meantime, enjoy another flick of Debbie Harry with muppets!

Playlist for Your Saxophone is My Guitar
Aired Wednesday 4/23/03 4:00-7:00pm

Wow sorry it's taken so long to get this up. Some notes -

I saw one of the Kid Dynamite reunion shows, waiving my official no-reunion show policy. But all the money went to a charity for cancer research, and Kid Dynamite broke up only a couple of years ago so I made a special exception and was happy with my decision. Other recent shows of note. - Converge!, AZITA/Daniel Johnston.

The Georges Montalba brings up good memories of the Castlevania series of Nintendo Games.

The Pitchfork reissue has some of the coolest guitar riffs ever. So far this year, I'm really rocking the Deerhoof, Aislers Set, and AZITA records. More recently though, the El Guapo is sounding really good. Oranges Band - big disappointment.

The Robert Fripp post-punk/new wave track is way cooler than you would expect.

Tortoise was by request, also the Dead Kennedys (I get more requests for the Dead Kennedys than any other artist by my estimation). On to the playlist.
