We Let In Light and We Banish Shade: Transmission 317, 2017 January 4

00:0000:00

acr_brazilia_rear.jpg Flying solo again on this outing, I took care of some unfinished business. Since xmas is technically a twelve-day observance--more on this momentarily*--I empty this year's quiver of holiday tunes. Five weeks after the fact, it doesn't sound clever; still, I don't regret it. More importantly, we deliver a "full-featured program," the first for some time, with a pertinent track from Lady C and A Certain Ratio occupying the prestigious "Physical Evidence" chair. This, too, was a belated seasonal observance. As I say, I would have liked to do this on the Winter Solstice (because you can't always play Coil; even I can't), but "things happened." The Old & The New is probably not a solstice record for you, but it is for me, a souvenir from a trip to Tower Records in Los Angeles during an ill-fated vacation, the guilt and shame of which I still carry. "Sounds Like Something Dirty," indeed. (In case you didn't know, this archive is also my diary, so deal.)

*I insist on stretching out the yuletide forever, by the way, on account of the recurring childhood trauma of watching my next-door neighbors throw their Christmas tree into the street, like clockwork, every December 26. That seemed wrong to young, Catholic Master Catharsis, as it does to older, lapsed Kid Catharsis. Apologies if I have told this story before--one only has so many to tell.
