Our world gets stranger every day and in an attempt to try and makes some sense of it all, we present Episode #98 (Joe’s Garage Act LVIII) which will hopefully soothe the savage beasts we seem to be turning into. New stuff from Matthew Ryan (Strays Don’t Sleep), Eels, Jesse Malin, The Shins, Brittney Howard (with Bon Iver), Dramarama, Low Cut Connie, Mike Doughty's exciting new project Ghosts Of Vroom and Aimee Mann covering Leonard Cohen. We also bid a tearful farewell to The Notorious RBG and somehow manage to connect Dean Martin, The Velvet Underground, Roxy Music, The Stranglers, Warren Zevon, The Blue Nile, The Orwells, Robert Fripp and The Bee Gees and much more. Thanks as always for your unwavering and generous support at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR.
It has been a whirlwind of confusion around these parts recently and I’m not even referring to the current political/societal maelstrom. We have been trying to buy a house and move for about a year and after several false starts we appear to be on the precipice. 2020… what a year! At any rate, this episode consists of long sets containing new music from Doves, Matt Berninger, David Johansen, Amy Rigby and Wreckless Eric, New Order, Bruce Springsteen with The E Street Band and a glimpse into the Joni Mitchell archives. We say goodbye to Toots Hibbert and Gary Peacock and lean on wisdom from the likes of Stan Ridgway, King Crimson, Stevie Wonder, Urge Overkill, Paul Rogers (with and without Free), Gregg Allman, The Wonder Stuff and Lothar & The Hand People for comfort. Thanks for you continued support at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR and most of all for listening.
Labor Day 2020 is one of the recurring themes of FTB#96 as we get ready to close the book on perhaps the weirdest Summer in our history. We offer up some new things from David Johansen, Grant-Lee Phillips, Jonathan Wilson, Robert Plant with Patty Griffin, Raye Zaragoza, Melody Gardot with Sting and Bill Callahan. We also dig into a great new Marc Bolan tribute, which was the last project of the legendary Hal Wilner, and newly released Vault material from David Bowie and The Stones. There are also gems included from Sly & The Family Stone, Radiohead, Car Seat Headrest, The Happenings, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Roy Orbison, The Black Crowes, Stevie Wonder, New York Dolls and a ton more. Be safe, wear a mask and thanks so much for your continued and generous support at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR. We couldn’t do this without you.
