Some Saykodelic Jyamming

So we started things off tonight with the unfailing menace of "Double Dare", by arguably the first "Goth" (thanks!) band, BAUHAUS. But it sure is one to wake you up with, holy shit. We then moved into a condensed EARTHLESS jam that burns so bright so fast that it deserves its own complex name to which astronomers' can refer to on their stellar maps of the cosmos. Instead, the boys named it "Jull". Speaking of the atmospheric conditions, a ridiculously heavy MAMMATUS cloud formed after that, raining one seriously heady prog torrent upon our puny civilization (leaving one caller stunned). Wrapping the first set was a little ditty called "Rich Man Poor Man" by THE GROUNDHOGS. Why did this song fit in? Because it was by the only group badass enough for the mighty Earthless to actually cover, that's why (see "Cherry Red"). Soon after, we heard from an almost mythically good band called CAUSA SUI. We heard "Manifestations of Summer, pts 1 & 2", and manifest, it did. About 12 mind-expanding minutes later, we came into something that even diehard SABBATH followers may have never heard; An extended jazz wig-out dubbed "Thomas James" that the core members were toying with before the actual culmination of the song that came to be their name for the next 40 years. After a long, frightful fadeout, TYME unswervingly slashed their way through that timelessly catchy 'naaa na na na naa' number, morphing it into something thoroughly unholy. We rounded out the program with a nasty wah skronk by the likes of RADIO MOSCOW, entitled "Hold on Me", and that was that.

From '68 to '09 with many-a-stop in between, this has been the psychedelic sound of NOW WHERE radio.

keep it easy.
