Hear It And Believe, Don’t You Grieve Or Look Behind: Transmission 189, 2015 February 24


shriekbackoilandgold.jpgAs promised, here is one of those programs that happens on a day when I just stop caring. So of course it is EXCELLENT. Lessons are only for those who can learn, so don't expect this to be the new thing. No "Physical Evidence," no "Listening Parlour," no "Hall of Vengeance," and no clue. "This was quieter than usual," the Senior Catharses tell me. Really? I didn't think so at the time, and still don't, but whatever "it" is I come by it honestly.

A little over a week after the fact, I find myself enjoying this one quite a bit. I don't know if this is part of my new "accept yourself" strategy or actual merit in the program, but it feels good, so I'm going to go ahead. Notes: DJ Kristi reminded me not too long ago how great those early Simple Minds records were. Those Shriekback / PWEI songs were certainly chestnuts for me back in the day. Did you know--I had a chance to see Shriekback in a tiny little campus coffeehouse, capacity ~200, back in Fall 1985 but opted instead to attend some politics lecture for extra credit in a class. PRIORITIES: I guess I had them once? I have warmed to that MBV record. I genuinely have no idea how that particular M83 song made it into the show, but that's part of the "magic." Finally, everyone, say hello to the Roots Nyabingi Brigade, straight from Babylondon!

I remember nothing about that lecture. Thanks, academia.
