Episode 064: MALLETS!

Playing tracks by

Jane's Addiction, The Jazz Butcher, V-Effect, R.E.M., The Auteurs and more.

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global indie rock chart, 2nd in the global alternative rock chart, 5th in the global new wave chart and 6th in the global post-punk chart.

This is a fun one! This 2-hour episode features songs w/mallet instruments (xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, steel drums, etc.), of which there are surprisingly a lot of in the Little Records library. The mallets were popular with the post-punks and new-/no-wave weirdos. We'll hear from Jazz Butcher, Nick Cave, Tortoise, The Triffids, Stereolab, Violent Femmes, Cleaners From Venus, Girls Against Boys, The Creatures, English Beat, The Psychedelic Furs, Helium, The Method Actors, and many more. And, maybe a first in the history of DJ-ing: Liquid Liquid spun into Cardinal.

I've been waiting my whole life for this combo. Violent Femmes made me want it. Cheers!
