It was about time we take a break from the past two wild episodes to catch a breather. After all, episode 82 was awfully primal, and the one before that, number 81 was nothing but psychobilly. So we cruised down with minimal talking and maximum instrumentals. One giga-ton of reverb weighing down a soft bed of exotic jungle sounds.

We touched shortly tonight on the show from last weekend which featured The Apollos, The Primate 5 and Whiskey Dick Mountain, and Jose Fang. For it being their first time in Seattle, the eastern Washingtonians Whiskey Dick Mountain went down a storm! I picked up their LP “BYOB” and it came with a piece of paper that lets you download the music…??? Or something like that. Not really sure, cuz my turntables don’t load down nuthin’. Figured somebody else might be able to use it (congrats Chris from Covington). We played a track off the LP about 50 minutes in if you want a swamped up, lo-fi sample of a killer band.

But the last two hours of the show were more for kicking back and let everything just cruise: Some powerful, modern surf-monsters, leading through some spaced-out sounds, dropping us off in the jungle. We escaped that crazy place to wind up back on a bouncin’ beach, ending up with our head in that sleazy, rompin-raucous titty-bar. Shake it, bay bay!
