The low notes. Love Dry Cleaning !
Jen Redlights (host) 10:03:34 AM
They really are addicting!
Christine 10:04:04 AM
Yay Dry Cleaning!
Christine 10:05:20 AM
Hey Jen! 🚥 Hi Brian!
gboss 10:05:27 AM
Hi Jen!
gboss 10:05:41 AM
Hi Christine and Brian!
Brian D 10:06:06 AM
Oh yes. We are off to a fine start. An Aussie band on your show eh?
Dave Leafey 10:06:26 AM
i'm going to see dry cleaning in philly feb 1st
gboss 10:06:26 AM
literally working with an actual eddy current suppression ring this week.....
Christine 10:06:28 AM
Hey gboss 🎩
Jen Redlights (host) 10:07:19 AM
Good morning, friends! Aussies, shocker!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:07:49 AM
@Dave, I think you’ll love it. They were great, and gracious, too!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:08:06 AM
@gboss, tell me more….
Brian D 10:08:17 AM
Love that scratchy gtr break that just jumps out
Christine 10:09:26 AM
Thanks for mentioning that, @Dave 🍂🍁. I missed Dry Cleaning when they were in Philly last time.
gboss 10:11:14 AM
Eddy Currents are useful for heating and melting conductive materials by induction. But you sometimes need to concentrate them so you only heat the target and not the surroundings.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:12:27 AM
I had no idea, and now will always think of the band as very melty!
Dave Leafey 10:13:40 AM
yeah me too - won't let that happen again
Christine 10:14:01 AM
I heard ECSR's "Which Way to Go" one WPRB one day, and that was it. They went on the List. 🇦🇺
gboss 10:15:34 AM
Eddy currents are also useful for non-destructive testing of materials. But the band has much better rhythm.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:16:00 AM
Hahahaha I agree!
jimbeaux 10:18:07 AM
Jen Redlights (host) 10:20:54 AM
Wasn’t that a hoot - they’re amazing.
C🦐 lin 10:23:18 AM
love this song!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:24:16 AM
Favorite single of last year and 30 years ago ;)
Brian D 10:24:20 AM
Yeah this fuzzes nicely
Brian D 10:26:31 AM
Great cover of Kool & the Gang's Hollywood Swinging back there
C🦐 lin 10:27:08 AM
both of those songs have been on my heavy rotation list. never knew the history of soul patrol. now i like it more!
Brian D 10:28:18 AM
Another great cover here
C🦐 lin 10:28:34 AM
the burnside record he did with the blues explosion as his backing band is amazing. ass pocket of whisky.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:29:47 AM
Oh I didn’t know he had Jon Spencer’s with him on that one! Nice!
Commie Francis ☭ 10:38:08 AM
I was just telling Bill that you might have the closest to my taste at the station and then you play 3 songs in a row that I own and have played on my show!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:42:18 AM
Commie, the mind meld is working! Love it!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:42:38 AM
(hi, Bill!)
Jen Redlights (host) 10:44:00 AM
And thanks for being here, all! Friday morning is the best morning.
Dan Ruccia 10:45:05 AM
gboss 10:45:24 AM
perfect morning for comets on fire
Dan Ruccia 10:45:39 AM
Still the greatest 10 minutes of music ever to grace the old WPRB production studio (before the bassist's amp cabinet died and they had to stop)
DSM all prawned out 10:45:54 AM
*turns up volume
Jen Redlights (host) 10:46:45 AM
Oh @Dan that is awesome and terrible! Love this record
Dan Ruccia 10:48:58 AM
Will have to play the recording on my show before too long. At least we got a pretty great Six Organs of Admittance solo set out of it
Jen Redlights (host) 10:49:18 AM
I really want to hear both!!
Andrew Gruen 10:49:22 AM
good morning!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:50:19 AM
Good morning, friend! Just in time for the sonic meandering.
Dan Ruccia 10:50:29 AM
@Jen That can be arranged. I'll email you
Andrew Gruen 10:50:29 AM
this is such a great album
Jen Redlights (host) 10:51:01 AM
@Dan 😍😍😍🎸
gboss 10:52:19 AM
@Dan can that be arranged for others too? Asking for myself.
Commie Francis ☭ 10:54:53 AM
Oh dang who wants to buy my slugs 7" for hundreds of dollars 🤑🤑🤑
Christine 10:55:27 AM
Love our PRB community. 💘
Jen Redlights (host) 10:55:50 AM
@ Commie hahahaha of COURSE you have it! Wooo!
Dan Ruccia 10:56:24 AM
@gboss Yeah, I think so. Email me: dan (at) wprb (dot) com
Jen Redlights (host) 10:56:41 AM
Funny story: I met WPRB luminary DJ Mike Lupica via a cry for a rare 7” on air, so you never know what can happen….
Andrew Gruen 10:56:58 AM
these guys were so crazy live
Andrew Gruen 10:57:18 AM
oh sees, that is
Andrew Gruen 10:58:12 AM
synchronized hardcore drumming was something I'd never seen before
Jen Redlights (host) 10:58:14 AM
I’ll bet! I just missed them 3 times in a row grrrrr.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:58:30 AM
C🦐 lin 10:58:51 AM
if i may borrow from another listens chat game, this exil is a total jam 🚨
Commie Francis ☭ 10:58:59 AM
Well I have the 2 separate 7"s that comprise the double 7". But yeah wow those went up a lot.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:59:20 AM
Brian D 11:00:08 AM
more great covers
David Shortell 11:01:08 AM
I remember when the couple in Zero Zero ran Black Cat Records. For a few years it was a nice Red Bank alternative to Jack’s Music Shoppe. It closed 11 days before the Attacks. I saw Holly Golightly’s band play in the store. When I spoke of it to Holly a few years ago in Belmar, she didn’t remember. She thought I was talking about the Washington D.C. venue, the Black Cat!
C🦐 lin 11:01:22 AM
I got this discord collection buried in one of my cd books. gotta revisit
Jen Redlights (host) 11:02:20 AM
@David that’s some great trivia - I had no idea!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:02:46 AM
@Colin I hadn’t pried it out in ages…totally worth it.
David Shortell 11:05:21 AM
I saw video of Redd Kross playing that Avengers song live. It was from one of the Flipside Video Fanzine cassettes that Vintage Vinyl carried for customers to rent. I didn't understand why they discontinued that great service.
Commie Francis ☭ 11:06:37 AM
Wait back up Jen what 7" introduced you to Mike?
Jen Redlights (host) 11:06:59 AM
You have a memory like a steel tack, @David! That is neat!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:07:39 AM
@Commie, it was DI covering “Unforgettable Urge” 🤣
David Shortell 11:08:25 AM
It's odd that the whole time I shopped at Black Cat, I didn't know Ari had been in a band called Lifetime. To this day, I've still never heard them!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:09:49 AM
@David, we will have to rectify that - maybe next week! Terrific hardcore band.
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 11:12:33 AM
Good morning everyone!
Commie Francis ☭ 11:12:57 AM
Once again: off of this whole box set I also chose this song
Jen Redlights (host) 11:13:55 AM
Hahah I love this! @Commie, we need to hang out soon :)
Jen Redlights (host) 11:14:06 AM
Good morning, @Rob!
Dan Ruccia 11:18:08 AM
The riff on this is just so infectious
Andrew Gruen 11:19:18 AM
did you see fake fruit when they opened for dry cleaning?
Dan Ruccia 11:20:34 AM
There's something about that 90s-esque submerged/shimmery guitar tone
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:03 AM
I did see Fake Fruit, and they were SPECTACULAR.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:20 AM
I was so stoked on that band, can’t wait to see them again.
Commie Francis ☭ 11:24:09 AM
I really wanted to see that tour when it was here but couldn't for some reason
Commie Francis ☭ 11:24:30 AM
How was dry cleaning? I could see them going either way live
Jen Redlights (host) 11:24:50 AM
I was so lucky to snag a ticket! It had sold out immediately.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:25:39 AM
Dry Cleaning was surprisingly super engaging. Guitarist is pretty nuts and fun to watch. But if she had been a jerk, I bet I would have hated it. She was not!
Christine 11:27:27 AM
That sounds like a great night!
Andrew Gruen 11:29:06 AM
the show at the church was a blast
Jen Redlights (host) 11:29:41 AM
@Andrew at The Chapel? That was it!
Andrew Gruen 11:36:17 AM
nah, first unitarian church
Jen Redlights (host) 11:37:46 AM
Ha got it! Thank you, Unitarians!
Christine 11:40:16 AM
Speaking of shows at UU churches, a night of electronic & space music is coming up on Sat 10/8 at the Washington Crossing Unitarian Universalist church. http://cosmiccrossings.org/
Jen Redlights (host) 11:40:36 AM
The Unitarians really are the best!
Christine 11:41:18 AM
They rock.
unoclay 11:41:25 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 11:43:06 AM
I will not but hope it’s a blast!
unoclay 11:43:24 AM
outdoors in the rain!! and decendents too
unoclay 11:44:07 AM
fat mike said they're retiring next year after 40 years......last chance folks
Andrew Gruen 11:45:31 AM
no but I'll be seeing otoboke beaver indoors!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:46:00 AM
Those guys can’t actually retire…. And @Andrew, that’s a good one!
Andrew Gruen 11:46:25 AM
these new soulside songs are fantastic
unoclay 11:46:49 AM
he sounded for real about it....seems like writing was on the wall since they retired Linoleum too
Jen Redlights (host) 11:47:02 AM
SO GOOD, and I’ll admit that I was skeptical…or more scared, honestly.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:47:26 AM
@unoclay then I predict lots of hits shall be played!
unoclay 11:47:59 AM
we might dress up in mullets and make a sign that says PLAY SOME BRUCE to get things fired up
Jen Redlights (host) 11:48:21 AM
Christine 11:50:36 AM
@Andrew, that should be a good (deafening) show.
Andrew Gruen 11:52:55 AM
yes! johnny brenda's can be incredibly loud sometimes
C🦐 lin 11:54:07 AM
i am a little jelly that andrew is gonna got a ticket to otoboke beaver
Christine 11:55:41 AM
Thank you DJ Jen Redlights...! 💯
gboss 11:56:19 AM
Thanks for the show, Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:59 AM
Thank you, friends! What a fun morning!
C🦐 lin 11:57:13 AM
fun show!
David Shortell 11:58:12 AM
I don’t plan on paying to see Sunday’s Stone Pony Summer Stage show (even though School Drugs are the openers), but I’m sure to hear it when I shop at the Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market in Bradley Park. The 5:30 afterparty at the Bond Street Complex features Long Defeats, Mala Vista, Tiki Torture and the great O.C. Rippers.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:58:58 AM
Oh wow, this is going to be quite a weekend! Have so much fun, all. See you next week!
Andrew Gruen 11:59:12 AM
otoboke just announced new shows in February!
Brian D 11:59:25 AM
Great show Jen!
Andrew Gruen 11:59:34 AM
great show, jen!
David Shortell 12:00:47 PM
On Saturday night, the Buzzcocks' Steve Garvey is playing in some band at the Asbury Park Yacht Club.
Jen Redlights (host) 12:00:55 PM
Thanks, you guys! Shows!!
David Shortell 12:02:28 PM
