Iowa Basement Tapes #12 9-20-2018

Night Listeners of 98.9FM KFMG –

Tonight I cracked open the show with one of my favorite tracks from self-titled LP by The Horrors, “Back in the Cut”. The riff on this song gives me goosebumps everytime I jam it. I introduce a few new bands into the mix including Mold, The Twelve Canons and Anthon Worden. A few tracks on tonight’s program are of lower quality then we are used to playing. One of them imparticular, is a track by The Problems, one of Ed Nehring’s many musical projects dating back to 1979. A mention I need to make is my discovery of the surf rockers, Steve Reverb and the Sound Tones which features my buddy Justin Beahm on drums. If you miss the broadcast make sure to subscribe to podcast edition on iTunes | Google Play | Stitcher.
