Live from our safe European home, it’s Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio, the 39th edition. This episode is brought to you by 11pm sundowns, World Cup watchathons that end at 2am in the morning and 4 cups of strong coffee per day. It travels multiple pathways of jangle, ear-shred and creepy-crawl folk/noise. Today’s modern heroes include MOLE HOUSE, ROACHCLIP, WOLF GIRL, HLEP, GOOD THROB, TRICK MAMMOTH, ADULTS, BATTY, and the utterly incomprehensible RÄJÄYTTÄJÄT.
Yesterday’s heroes include Look Blue Go Purple, Surgery, The Rats, Rhino 39, The Huns, Radio Pete and even the goddamn Donnas. We even play 2009 Dynamite Hemorrhage song obsession “Desert Fun” by The Mayfair Set(pictured) yet again. Download it, rate it, tell a friend about it and help stamp out disco.

Every other week I seek to give unto the people a 60/90-minute streaming/downloadable pretend radio show, recorded on my laptop at the back of my house. This happens to be one of those fortnights. DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO #35 is 85 minutes of new underground & independent noise, garage pop & obscurities from the last five decades. This show’s marked itself as having a particularly annoying string of commentary from the know-it-all mushmouth host, who speaks before he thinks, flubs discographical information and can’t even get the name of the current computer virus wreaking havoc on the internet correct.
At least the music is gnarly. New stuff this time from Pang, Sex Tide, Girl One and the Grease Guns, The Spies, Nun, Trick Mammoth, Animals & Men, Witching Waves and Slum of Legs is pockmarked by older stuff from the likes of Simple Saucer, The Puddle, Howard Werth, the Meat Puppets, Pussy Galore and Blast Off Country Style. See what you think by downloading it to your computer, tablet or phone, streaming it via Soundcloud or subscribing to the show (and getting some of the older episodes) on iTunes.

Following other stellar. top-to-bottom excellent pure-pop LPs I’ve totally fallen for this year by Veronica Falls and La Luz, the debut LP “Floristry” from Dunedin, New Zealand’s TRICK MAMMOTH is my new saccharine ringer.
I’m not sure if it’s more first-LP Teenage Fanclub or entire-career Look Blue Go Purple but their record’s absolutely worth a pickup if any of the aforementioned get your proverbial motor running. Meanwhile, here’s a video of the band live in NZ.
