Inspirational opening set!

GO4 and Pylon, that was a double bill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Mister Dobalina:

Everybody in his or her own life needs a hobby, fills the voids that work and rent create. We can win.
  9:35pm Ethel Mertz:

When you gonna play that song that sounds like a
cucumber salad? By the way when you talk you sound
like you gotta fried potatoe suucvk between a tooth.
  9:35pm Stevel:

I knew it! Beautiful! Lithics must tour near me! Not to be pushy. We're not like that, in the Midwest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm medson:

Nice. I've been looking forward to hearing this set
  9:51pm Stevel:

So damned good. Hypnotic. Groovy.
  9:53pm Stevel:

Do they ever gig with Blind Shake? There's a noise element in common. That, or I'm stoned on a Wednesday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

or maybe both? Could be both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Chop Scott:

Cheers to Mike Sin!!

Sounds great.

Difficult to say. Literally.

  10:08pm Stevel:

Really good.
Avatar 10:08pm Hoboken Jack:

Yay Lithics!
  10:10pm Stevel:

Mike Sin, once again, is God.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Bootsie:

I've never heard Lithics before, but, yes, they sounded familiar to me. In a good way. Evocative, but not derivative. I enjoyed them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm efd:

yes, that's a good way to put it Bootsie!
  10:15pm Stevel:

Holy Suaves!
  10:16pm EL:

Heck yea to this Sueves track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm medson:

@efd did you listen to this entire Svvamp album? I have not but I really liked their first album a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm efd:

I haven't yet, but what I've heard from superficial scanning sounds pretty good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm efd:

(despite my staunch opposition to the double-letter conceit)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm medson:

ha ha I hear ya
  10:30pm Alex of Chicago:

Very much to like in that set.
Avatar 10:31pm Aharon:

That's how I've alvvays spelled it.
  10:36pm Alex of Chicago:

I've seen the Suaves numerous times, and yet never heard their name pronounced until now, somehow. They were reflexively more Rico in my head.
  10:37pm Alex of Chicago:

Er, Sueves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Bootsie:

Cool, I just saw The Queers with The Dickies

  11:12pm Fashion Tashjian:

Dammit I did miss the live set, but I'm not waking up any earlier than this, which by Armenian standards is already deathly early. Ah, the magic of archives.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm efd:

it's like my show is on 24 hours a day!
  11:19pm Fashion Tashjian:

Hypothetically one could listen to your show 24 hours/day given enough archived sets, so....)))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm efd:

technically possible, but I wouldn't recommend it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm medson:

Good night folks, thanks for this evenings soundtrack efd
Avatar 11:35pm Roberto:
