Domain trouble! I had a hell of a time trying to hold on to the URL hedonistjive.com with something called “Google Apps”, and woke this morning to find it expired.

I’ve now migrated over 4 years’ worth of content on my other blog, THE HEDONIST JIVE, to a new URL – www.hedonist-jive.com. If you have a bookmark, please feel free to adjust it accordingly, as the other one appears to be dead as a doornail.




For those of you who thought I’d abandoned what was once my “main” blog The Hedonist Jive – I haven’t. For those of you who didn’t know about it, check it out. For those of you who couldn’t care less – sorry to bother you.

The Hedonist Jive is where I write about books, film, non-rock music, sports, culture and high & low art in all its forms. I also post awesome 1950s, 60s and 70s motel postcards at The Postcard Motel. Tell a friend!



The Hedonist Jive – That’s My Blog

The Hedonist Jive – That’s My Blog



Well, that wasn’t so difficult. I’ve created the first of what will hopefully a regular series of 60-minute “radio shows” under the DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE brand name, and all things considered (like, I had zero idea how to use the GarageBand software I created this in last night even 24 hours ago), it turned out pretty much all right.


My aim with this thing is to create playlists of music that I like & that you wanna hear; you might just not know it yet. You’ll find clusters of music that slot loosely into underground pop; classic punk; weird psych/noise; 60s garage, pop and girls-in-the-garage; proto-punk; bedroom DIY recordings and even a little undie rock. 

I personally have not hosted a radio show in which I talk, “back announce” etc. in over 22 years – proving not only how ancient I am personally, but how rusty my on-mic skills are, which is all too apparent in this first radio show/podcast. You’ll even hear the local dogs barking in the neighbor’s backyard during one segment. My goal is to keep these to a digestible hour in length when I make them, and to not worry so much about flubs & various vocal tics and bad habits that make up my radio persona. In other words, the first take will always be the only take, and I’ll try to do better next show, OK?

With that in mind, let me state for the record that the band Bette Davis & The Balconettes were a late 90s band, not a late 80s act as claimed on Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #1.
