A Season in Hell #130: That's Illogistical!
Oh boy, it's one thing when you host a band that you don't have personal connections with coming into the studio, it's another when you've been friends for over 20 years. When you don't know the band, they're all polite and well-behaved, and answer your questions directly. When you know them, it's almost all of the above, but they call you by the wrong name (on purpose), talk to people off mic (when you're on mic), and steal your snacks. I still love them from the bottom of my heart. I'm just sayin', is all.
With that being said, I was beyond excited to host local progressive, electronic rock trio The Illogistical Resource Dept (AKA: The I.R.D.), who are having a CD release party for "Catharsis" at the El Rio this Saturday night. This ten song CD, which will fly you to the moon and back, with it's understated guitar acrobatics, from veteran guitarist Jim Harris. Dan Menapace holds down the bottom, with bone-shaking bass and synth. The drumming is done meticulously, as if Noa "Oz, the Watermonk of Dah" Appleton is a PhD student in the department of kicking your math rock ass.
I'm a genuine fan of these three as musicians and as people. There is something that just feels right when good things happen to good people. You need to make this show. But first be certain to listen to the podcast of this show.
This is where you do your duty and stream this show.
It's right about here that you download this gem and take it everywhere you go.
Right about now you've decided that you must listen to every show I've produced. Good for you. Go here.
