The Deep End: I want my own planet!!!

Here's one I cooked up the week before!

On the latest Deep End, first we take San Francisco, then we take our own planet. Can we come over tonight? We wanna love you some more. This is a message to persons unknown. We're not safe. And we don't need no more trouble.

The Deep End: What keeps you going?

Last Wednesday's Deep End was put together rather quickly, what with the huge amount of video editing on my plate. But it was great fun nonetheless, rambling from Detroit garage-punk soul covers to inspirational songs for the young generation by the Heptones, with stops in between for boisterous bilingual indie girls, walls of Tall Dwarfs, and a devastating oldie from Fleetwood Mac where Peter Green confronts his spiritual crisis head on and jumps into the void. (Or as Davis Jones put it, "that was epic and sad.") The whole range of human emotion is represented in this hour. What keeps you going? Great radio, great radio.

The Granite Countertops: Stop Breaking Everything

We have made a bunch of new videos for songs on the new album by the Granite Countertops, PLANETS DON'T TWINKLE. Here is the opening track, a fusion of punk and drum-and-bass, with lyrics about the insane destructive streak of our conservative brethren. An ode to the ironic feeling of having grown up on anarchist ideals, and seeing them perverted and co-opted by the far right in the 21st century. As the song says, "Chaos is not the thrill it used to be!"

The Granite Countertops: Beyond Belief

The story of a sweet young Catholic girl learning some hard lessons about life, family, and secular humanism.

The Granite Countertops: Love Is A Verb

A song about how most love songs are crap, but love itself is awesome.

The Deep End: To the rescue

In this edition of The Deep End, the Monks and the Granite Countertops air some grievances, the Maytones and the Mighty Diamonds give us a dose of some reggae reality, Laurie Anderson walks the dog, Thomas Mapfumo tells the story of his life and struggle, and Laverne Baker calls on the superhuman powers of Jim Dandy.
