Alternative Indie Fusion, Or So It Says: Transmission 85, 2013 December 18

January 6, 2014

Finally, "Physical Evidence" is serving a purpose--it doesn't just provide cover for my laziness, making the overplay of one record seem like conceptual art, it now helps me remember what the experience of a given show was like. So I can say with confidence that this is a good program, because Bugs on the Wire is a good record. Ask me anything else about this particular program and I'll be well challenged.

As I say during the broadcast, I have no idea why this particular record came about, other than to satisfy someone's desire to compile an album. But it's an exciting collection that captures...I don't know what, exactly. Thinking back through the various releases that have served as "Physical Evidence," I don't recall one that comes closer to what BOMBAST strives to be. And why does it strive to be so? Again, I have no freaking idea; I guess it seems more fun than monochrome.
