The Paranoid Squirrel ep 529
Penetration gets the show started this week as I talk about my Birthday gig up at the Brixton Academy seeing The Damned who I obviously play. I then bring you up to speed with the connection between Los Morüchos and Bone Talk, two bands I played tracks from on last week’s show. New music comes courtesy of Borracho with a track from their just released “Atacama” album before The Prehistorics also hit us with somethingnew. Pledge Round up has me talking about The Damned and Bernie Tormé’s latest inclusions with me playing a track from The Vibrators forthcoming pledge album “Past, Present and into the future” which is swiftly followed by a track from Ryan Hamilton & the Traitors “The Devils in the Detail” pledge album.Normally at this time of year I’m making plans to see Motörhead. Of course, with Lemmy’s passing last December the band came to a juddering halt. I did think about seeing Mötorheadache at the end of last month, but no tribute could ever fill those Cowboy Boots. Instead I’m nailing my flag of allegiance to Asmovel who are playing the Dev next month. The Motörhead song that is the soundtrack to the above is covered by The Lucky Strikes. Tuesday took me up to the Underworld to see Richie Ramone begin his current UK/Ireland tour. Support came from Tequila Mockingbyrd who a few months ago were residing in Australia but have now upped sticks and relocated to Blighty. Mad fools who just so happen to be great! To whit I play a track from their, not quite released over here, debut album “Fight and Flight”. With only 3 remaining Ramones left if one comes to town you better cut along and see them. Since Richie was here last, which was only in February, things have changed; guitarist Alex Kane left shortly after the recording of Richie’s new solo album “Cellophane” had been completed, being replaced by Ronnie Simmons. Ronnie plays with an expression that would sour milk in a true Johnny Ramone manner and jumps and leaps around like Dee Dee. A perfect fit, with Clare still counting in at break neck speed.Straight after a track from “Cellophane” I air my favourite Mike Patton era Faith No More track. In a shock move The Hip Priests have just released a brand spanking new 7” which of course I play. As it is coming up to thee Season I thought I’d get in quick and play a couple of Christmas tunes (Only 3 weeks to go) courtesy of former Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy and HIM vocalist Ville Vallo and then winding things up for this week Håkan Göstas and the Shemales and a song so new and downright exciting, I don’t even know what it’s officially called.
