Felt inspired to get this underway quickly as some very tasty new things were making it difficult to leave the studio. Happily humming along and picking music, honestly pleased that the old brain is firing again, I was just about finished grabbing new things from Steve Poltz, Death Cab For Cutie and Flaming lips from the Yoko tribute, Bob Mould and Drug Couple, one of the tasty items mentioned earlier. Started recording and it’s a blast but suddenly I received the double shock news of Gary Brooker and Mark Lanegan. So, Episode #160 does have the new things listed, with additional arrivals from Bonnie Raitt, Midnight Oil and interestingly enough, The Afghan Whigs first new record in 5 years. Dulli is also represented as Twilight Singers and Gutter Twins in the pair of tributes assembled for Mark and Gary, old pal Bud Scoppa joined for the Brooker segment. Expect the usual romp through the unusual sections of the library. Although I never had the pleasure to meet Mr. Brooker but have heard only good things about him. Lanegan I did spend some time with and he truly was a nice guy. He never had it easy and lived hard, but he was a friendly, warm human and that fucking voice! I was a fan. Hope you enjoy the show, thank you for listening and the wonderful support.
