PR016 - The Ultimate

Starting out the show with a joke track. No. Check that. It's a track that started out as a joke, and then morphed into something wonderful. Start at the beginning. John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats was joking around on twitter with Rian Johnson, who is directing the new Star Wars movie. He suggested a song titled: The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All The Other Jedi And Eats Their Bones. Rian replied to John: PLEASE WRITE THIS. And so he did.

Still playing catch up to 2016, and it's already February. Why did it take me so long to get Aesop Rock, Kate Tempest, and Bleached? Special shout-out to my friend Aaron who turned me on to The Scientists (and The Limiñanas back in the day). Also, I finally picked up Full Cold Moon by Cold Cave.

New (live) music from Sleater-Kinney, Cloud Nothings, Surfer Blood, and Japandroids. Going to play RTJ3 until I get through the whole thing. Belated tribute to William Onyeabor. Sending strength to Zachary Cole Smith from DIIV who just checked into rehab. Special shout out to Fire Retarded for deciding to change their name to Fire Heads.
