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.

After posting the wall-pinning track “Muchos Dracula” from Seattle’s TEA COZIES for you yesterday, I decided to do a little back catalog digging on the band in order to provide you with a more rounded picture of this band. Like I said yesterday, their oeuvre goes back to 2006, and it looks like they’ve been laying pretty low for the last three years. Thankfully it’s all on Bandcamp so you can do your own exploring.

My take is that they’re probably peaking right now, because nothing, aside from a great, poppy 2008 45 called “Pretty Pages”, can touch their wild new track. Tea Cozies are rooted in post-punk gronk, along with glossy sheen of fairly indie-esque pop music, and in the right hands that could still be some dangerous stuff. Their album “Hot Probs” from 2009 is more like B- material, with several songs approaching the 6-minute mark and one chorus too many on the others. I’m all for seeing where they go next after this recent mp3 leakage. You still with me?


Check out this brand-new, massive, wall-of-wurlitzer floor-thumper called “Muchos Dracula” from a Seattle band called The TEA COZIES, who appear to have been around for some time now (since 2006 – like, ancient!). How come they never knocked on Dynamite Hemorrhage’s door before to tell us what they were up to? This’ll please indie kids, pop-leaning garage punks and maybe even folks who like to “dance”.
