I love WCSB. There are several shows that I listen to regularly, and I am continually blown out.

In particular, Herb's Anti-Urban Contemporary... is one of the greatest. He plays stuff that I have never heard, and stuff that I immediately need to have in my possession.

Actually, South of Heaven is great, but Reign in Blood is more essential. Motley Crue, Shout at the Devil. Lynrd Skynyrd, Street Survivors. Def Leppard, Pyromania (LOL, John, but seriously). Phil Collins, No Jacket Required (but Ritalin is).

I used to love New Order's Power Corruption and Lies, but I don't it has aged well and does does not really transcend the time at which it was made. It sounds too techno w/ cheesy keyboards and programmed drums; I much prefer Movement.

I will have to agree with shakesomeaction,

mummies-never been caught

is definitely a "must have" for all you garage wannabes out there. They are influenced by 2 of the most respected bands who get very little credit: The Sonics and The Wailers (not to be confused with with Bob Marley and The Wailers)

Favorite New Band Out There

Live Fast Die - Bandanna Thrash Rock

Hands down and Their 7" Pissing on The Mainframe.

Favorite Comp

Mexican psych out (Garage Latino),

Cleveland Confidential (Regional Comp punk/experimental/Garage)


Zick Zack Record comp (German Experimental Label Comp)

are all tied with me although I do love the

"No New York" Comp

(regional experimental with the Contortions, Mars, DNA and I forget the other band right now.)

Favorite Experimental Surprise find:

Abwartz - Amok (Germany)

Favorite Soundtrack:

Repo Man although I do Enjoy " The Life Aquatic" and "Super Fly" a lot too.

Favorite Kids Soundtrack:


Favorite Clasical Composition:

Frédéric Chopin's - Marche funèbre

and that is what I have for now
