"Get up and get your grandma outta here."

Ok. that I get that. The "he's worth a deuce' line not so much.

Smashin' Podsistorscast: Number 9, Number 9, Number 9....

Smashin Podsistorcast 8: Sideways It's A Sign For Infinity

    
     I'm not a math wizard. As a matter of fact to get my degree(s) in college math credit is required. I kept putting it off. Took me years to finally get the diploma because, well, let's just say I put it off for a loooong time. I do remember though that an 8 sideways does look like the sign of infinity. Thank you Schoolhouse Rock.
     Turn it up for new things from Video, the Deadbeat Beat, Wireheads, Spray Paint, Tang Soleil, Thee Mighty Domotas , What Tyrants, Rik & the Pigs and Lavender Flu. Keep it cranked for classics from the Cramps. The Patti Smith Group, Joe Clay, The Damned, Tav Falco's Panther Burns, Can and Little Ann. Blast out all the good stuff scattered around in between too.

Smashin' Podsistorscast: The Lucky No. 7

     They say the number 7 is lucky. Well, I've had a slew of little bad lucks following me around for a few weeks. How did I get through? Blasting music chased them away and now things are seeming to become an even keel.
     Some of the things I cranked up can be heard now. Fresh new platters from Fuzz, the Yolks, Tang Soleil, Helen, Rata Negra, Cold Beat and Timmy's Organism. Stacks of wax from way back such as the Clean, Silver Jews, The B-52s, Opal, the Devil Dogs and Sylvie Vartan. And as usual a bunch of other tasty musical morsels for your ears to snack on placed about too.

Smashin' Podsistorscast: 6...66

     Things have been a bit crazy hectic on the work and transportation front in the Smashin' Transistors world the past month or so. It's kind of distracted me from sitting down and jotting observations & opinions on records and beer that have passed through the ears and lips. I did get a new edition of the podcast together for your digital devices this week though.
     With Halloween right around the corner I did think about doing a spoooky themed show. Problem is though I'm a bit ADD and would've got distracted or bored with doing such a thing halfway through. That and there's plenty of people out there who do such things much better than I could anyway. I just blasted a bunch of tunes instead. Let new things from noisemakers such as Frau, Wand, Spray Paint, Ghastly Spats, Black Time, Cheena, Destruction Unit and the Staches infect the part of your brain that sound goes. Have things of the past from Suicide, Dale Hawkins, The Velvet Underground, Strawberry Window and Honey Bane haunt your speakers. And, course, have other sounds on this go round make their way out of your speakers too.

Smashin Podistors: The ST5 "Jam Out The Kicks"

    
     The Smashin' Podsistorscast is now five deep. Have new things from sorts such as Obnox, Uranium Club, Protomartyr, Sewers, OBN IIIs and Screature sear your ear drums. We pulled some goodies off the back shelves from Wire, Bettye LaVette, the Feelies and Huggy Bear to reminisce about as well. And, as usual, plenty of clattering and blaring in between.
