We mourn the tragic losses of Mimi Parker from Low, Keith Levene of Public Image Ltd., and Dan McCafferty of Nazareth with a small tribute to each aforementioned band. I have a lot of new and almost new material for you this month, including great songs from Off Models, Kaye, Dartz, Life, Les Rencards, Arrêt, Fomies, and Lucrecia Dalt. We also have a new song from the upcoming album by Summer Flake. But wait! We have some prog-reggae from Ecuador, a Finnish ska cover of The Misfits, and an awesome song from The Godfather's mother!
Enjoy the show!

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Arabrot is a Norwegian Grammy-winning noise rock band formed in Haugesund, Rogaland, Norway in 2001. Their latest releases is 2014's mini-album "I Modi" and 2015's "You Bunch of Idiots".

Arabrot first received widespread recognition with the Steve Albini produced third album, The Brother Seed (2009). Following this album, Arabrot went into a creative blaze the succeeding years. For instance, they did live scores at silent film showings (“Faust” from 1926 in Trondheim, “Häxan” from 1922 at Øyafestivalen, “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” from 1920 and “Die Nibelungen” from 1924 at Verdensteatret in Tromsø) and did commissioned work for the highly regarded Henie Onstad Kunstsenter. In the middle of all this, Arabrot produced the exploratory EPs AbsoluteNegativism, I Rove and Mæsscr, two albums under the Nernes Skagen moniker, as well as two stand out albums: The gargantuan Billy Anderson-produced double album REVENGE and the needle-sharp Solar Anus, again featuring Steve Albini as a producer.

Arabrot’s flourishing lyricism adds an unmatched depth. Macabre renditions of classic works like the Bible and Dante’s Inferno meet philosophical themes derived from the historical avant-garde. The existentialism of Camus and Sartre; the surrealism of Bataille and Lautréamont; the eroticism of Henry Miller and de Sade; the romantic writings of Coleridge, Poe and de Quincey; mystic thinkers such as Aleister Crowley and Jorge Luis Borges, oppositionals like Féderico Lorca and of course Norway’s chief contrarian Jens Bjørneboe all make their way into Arabrot’s unique character.

Arabrot’s much anticipated self-titled sixth album, with stone cold artwork by Johannes Høie, was released in August 2013. Following a summer-long battle with throat cancer, Arabrot's main man Kjetil Nernes emerged victorious and released the mini-album "I Modi" in 2014, a companion release to Okkultokrati's third album "Night Jerks".
