8/12/09: "I Sprinted a Few Times to Push the Limits..."

Very creepy title tonight. If anyone knows where it's from, you're probably sicker than I am. Awesome show tonight. All over the place stylistically with plenty of new stuff and a few choice selections from the vinyl library. A classic from Nancy and Lee, some Sonic Youth, and I even grabbed a couple avant garde/noise records that I didn't get to. Even with a first inning error from the studio being a disaster and a late-in-the-game substitution with the Tara Jane O'Neil CD I really, really wanted to play missing, tonight went really, really well (what's with the sports analogies?). The interview with Chris from Talbot Tagora, [a young, talented Seattle band I've played before, and have seen live (w/ Abe Vigoda)] was also a highlight for tonight. Very nice guy, eager and willing to show WHUS some love (not to mention, they are killer live). ALmost forgot to mention, we had former WHUS DJ Jeffrey in studio, as well as current WHUS DJ David (who can be heard Tuesdays from 10pm until midnight). Anyway, here's the playlist in all its glory.
