Two words… Spank Rock! Man, they were a lot of fun! If only you could have been here for the pre-performance conversation. It went something like…
Spank Rock: “So, what words are ok for us to say on the air?”
KEXP: “Hmmm… What words are you thinking about?”
Spank Rock: “How about… $%@& or @#%$ or &!@$?”
KEXP: “No… and no… and probably not a good idea…”
Check out what they left for us… cassette tapes… How cool is that?!?!
I’m glad the medium hasn’t become totally obsolete. Remember the days before iTunes and MP3s, when you would make an ACTUAL mix tape? Or you might tape a song straight off the radio… Don’t get me wrong, things are much better now, but the old mix tape was pretty awesome and so is Spank Rock! Check them out tonight at Chop Suey and listen to this afternoon’s show at the Streaming Archive.
