The Foreign Resort 11/11/13

The Cure and Joy Division, with their upbeat, yet dark, sonic moods were a breeding place for the current wave of moody, atmospheric bands like The Foreign Resort.

August 3, 2000: The Day the Side Door died

With KDHX about to move to Grand Center I thought it would be fun to tell you one of my favorite stories from when I was sound engineer for a show called "Sounds About Town." It was on Thursday nights and the mission was to give away tickets and play music from upcoming gigs.

Lou Reed's body of work goes back to the underground of New York City in the mid '60s. While the West Coast was doing acid, NYC was using speed: sunshine and beaches vs. dark, cramped basements and alleyways; bubbly art vs. intellectualism. Reed's music reflected that environment and the way he experienced it.

Dead Milkmen 6/8/13

Streaming Audio

If you listened to college radio in the '80s you had probably already heard the Dead Milkmen before the video for "Punk Rock Girl" hit MTV in 1988.

Free Energy 1/24/13

Streaming Audio

Free Energy is an exuberant Philadelphia-based rock band that plays the kind of pop-rock that sounds perfect in a stadium or a club.

I host "Train of Thought" every Friday 3-5 a.m. Central on 88.1 KDHX. As usual, I had a good time putting together my list of top 10 albums and singles of the year.

It's safe to say that just about everyone knows Primus. You might not own every disc or have seen the band live, but you've probably caught a video on MTV for "Mr Krinkle" or "My Name Is Mud," or maybe you've caught one of bass player/singer Les Claypool's many side projects.

Metric has been making new wave-flavored indie rock since 1998. The band has released five albums of evolving material and its latest, "Synthetica," appeared this past June.

The Flaming Lips have been making adventurous, creative and sometimes outright silly rock 'n' roll since the early days of the alternative boom. It would be wrong to say they think outside of the box because I'm not sure they ever acknowledged the box to begin with.
