Maybe we won't wait forever to do this again! We had fun.

Some things haven't changed since I gave up the regular gig. The pipeline of Aussie jams has remained continually primed, and this podcast contain five prime cuts of vinyl from Oz. SS remains an infallible hitmachine. Memphis is still the best rockin' landlocked place in the USA.

CCR Headcleaner delivers the most premium knuckledragging scuzzpunk devastation of the night, gnarling up gutpunch riffs and perfectly encapsulating the paradoxical plight of being the life of the party.

And the dreamiest swoony croon you'll hear here is not from the swansong by Peter Jefferies, but by Rob from Eat Skull who is charmingly emoting his ass off with real beauty. Eat Skull has joined the rare pantheon of bands who've made three great first albums that have gotten better and better with each release.

Ghastly Spats takes the cake as tonight's band I most wish I'd started. I could totally play drums at least as good. Maybe even guitar, too. Probably not as clever as these guys and gals, though. They work the crude angles brilliantly, and this may be the most thoroughly satisfying low-brow/no-brow 7" with > 4 songs since Kill the Hippies dropped Will Not Overstimulate.

Sorry to keep you waiting on a pulse-check of our record collection. We've been keeping up quite well still, but also finding time to spend exciting weekends in places like Redding, Fresno, and Bakersfield to take pictures of old roadside weirdness, peeling paint, neon signs, graffiti, and trash.
