A friend in LA told me the latest LA Weekly has a couple of pieces by Henry Rollins on Dinosaur Jr. Apparently he’s playing I Bet on Sky (along with Axis Bold as Love in mono) Saturday on his radio show on KCRW Saturday night 8-10 pm, should be fun:
Fanatics! Tonight, we have a fantastic show for you. We will continue four weeks with Jimi Hendrix in our first hour with the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s second album Axis: Bold As Love in mono. It’s a great one. This particular version was taken from the re-issued mono LP from several years ago.
As I have been telling you over and over for weeks now, our second hour will be taken up by Dinosaur Jr.’s brand new album I Bet On Sky, which will hit the racks this coming Tuesday. I really don’t know how many times I have played this album since I got a copy weeks ago. It’s a great one. I have not heard the vinyl yet but I pre-ordered mine and am looking forward to rockin’ it later in the year.
Thanks again to the band and their manager Brian for letting us lay this on you.
We have wanted to get this show out to you for weeks now and damn, I hope you Fanatics dig it. Next week, get ready for Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland reconstructed. I think you’re going to find it all very interesting. More information in the next set of notes. Until then, get ready to ROCK and STAY FANATIC!!! –Henry
