No, this isn’t another post about the falling dollar. Ignore those cries of doom and gloom; this is something to help realign your chakras, and rattle the dust from your rafters. I’m getting the chance to put together an on-going radio show at 88.1 KSRH, the station at San Rafael High. It’s going to be called, “To the Bottom,” and will spotlight … what else? Bass in yo’ face—with a modicum of grace.
Here’s the playlist for the inaugural show:
To the Bottom — #1
To Defy the Laws of Tradition — Primus, Frizzle Fry (1990)
SuperWhat? — Boosty Collins, Superbad OST (2007)
The Guns of Brixton — The Clash, Live at Shea Stadium (1982/2008)
Miss You — The Rolling Stones, Some Girls (1978)
Politician — Cream, BBC Sessions (1967/1996)
Higher Ground —Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mother’s Milk (1989)
Your Phone’s Off the Hook, But You’re Not — X, Los Angeles (1980)
Natural’s Not in It — Gang of Four, Entertainment (1979)
Blank Generation — Richard Hell & the Voidoids, Blank Generation (1977)
Better Git It in Your Soul, Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um (1959)
Those of you that know me will wonder about the lack of Mike Watt on this show. I was thinking of pulling together an all-Watt show with a song from all the different projects he’s been involved with. Stay tuned!
