I had been back in the Bay literally one day and my friend Ben Sizemore makes me do his radio show with him. It's was fun as hell and I sound like an idiot but here it is anyway. All the songs on the show can be found on this blog. Ben does a great job check out his show every week.

THE ESTRANGED -Subliminal Man - LP (New Dark Age Records/Sabotage Records)
Anyone who hasn't heard this band has been living under a rock for the past 3 years. Think early WIRE, JOY DIVISION, and WIPERS of course, and then add musicians with the skill to bring something interesting and exciting to the sound. I used the limited edition Silkscreen cover wraparound that I designed for this great follow-up to their " Static Thought" LP.

The AUTHORITIES - Puppy Love LP
Another one of my all time favorites. This came out in '93 which was the year after I discovered punk. The Authorities kind of dropped in my lap. There I was about to buy some other seminal record that everyone owns, and instead because of my lack of cash I picked up this gem instead. Ever since the needle hit the wax I have worshiped this band. The simply never gets old, the music is layered and complex. See for yourself
MOSKWA - s/t - LP
One of my all time favorite records. The drums on this record are phenomenal, the singing is catchy as hell, and guitar and bass have hooks like no other band can hope for. If you haven't heard this record please download it. I think this is due for a re-issue on vinyl. Anyone contacted them about it yet?
