Options Burn It Down! with Nate K.: Playlist from December 31, 2017 Options

Nate K.'s avatar View Nate K.'s profile Options

Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Mr. K., what's the name of your usual closing theme? It seems to emote sadness and endurance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 6:10am ultradamno:

Reminds me of Korla Pandit. Which I like.

Hello, Nate, you old acquaintance
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 6:20am Nate K.:

Morning everybody. Thanks for dropping by. Doing a 2017 year-in-review today. Lots of recent "old faves."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 6:29am Mike Sin:

Listening to your show through the stereo, watching "The Twilight Zone" marathon on mute and CC. Happy new year, Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 6:30am Nate K.:

Great to hear from you, Mike. I would hope I'll provide some solid TZ accompaniment.

Great show so far Nate
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:27am Scraps:

I’ve been listening in bed, and going to go back to listening in bed shortly. Good fun today on Burn It Down. So love early Family Fodder, a just great band, from late seventies like “Debbie Harry”, to recently. All sorts of genres in Family Fodder. Cheers.

@Scraps, sleep well. If you need to wake up again, tune back in.

Hi @Aaron, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:43am ultradamno:

There's just no arguing with that album title.
Avatar Sun. 12/31/17 7:46am DonJuanTijuana:

Dang, tried to get up early especially for this show! Thank God for the archive! My guess is TOPT will be paying special attn to this show too. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:46am Nate K.:

@Ultra, which one?

Heavy Metal's

@DonJuan, we slugged it out last night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:47am ultradamno:

I meant song title, actually

(Nate: I’m listening in bed, not sleeping yet. I hope.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:58am Nate K.:

@Ultra, yes, no further explanation needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 7:59am Nate K.:

@Scraps, I'll do my best to keep awake.

I love you, I'm gonna send you a message.
  Sun. 12/31/17 8:11am gekko hopman:

Bonjour from France you've just played a band I adore, En Attendant Ana, the singer is the daughter of my best friend. They're playing again in Paris on Jan 16 at the Supersonic alongside with immensely talented young French band ELLAH A THAUN which i recommend too. Best wishes for 2018 (we're coming to NYC by the way)

@gekko, that's awesome! I really love that record a lot.
  Sun. 12/31/17 8:16am gekko hopman:

Merci beaucoup NATE. You'll be hearing from them again soon. New songs and recording (with a new drummer, awesome)
  Sun. 12/31/17 8:16am medson:

Good Morning and Happy New Year Nate/Everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:18am ultradamno:

My year in new music (off radio) has largely reveled around new Chrome, Pere Ubu, Allen Ravenstine, Xordox, Half Japanese, Endless Boogie, Messer Chups, Peter Perrett, The Fall, Protomartyr, Can. Twin Peaks soundtracks (Baladamenti and Hurley mostly), Kid Congo Powers, Jon Langford
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:23am Sem:

Lovin' the spins, Nate, a smoking kaleidoscope of 2017's styles, tastes and directions: I can feel the heat from here, and christ knows we need the warmth. Thanks for a year's worth of kindling to keep a soul's fire burning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:24am ultradamno:

I meant to say "revolved" not "reveled"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:25am Nate K.:

@Gekko, you can have them contact me if they come to the States. I'd love to have them on the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:28am Mayor Frank:

Nate, this is a fine way to see out 2017. Where in Va. did Sunwatchers record that track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:37am fred:

@gekko: Thanks for the heads-up. I might show up there, depending on what else is happening
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:41am ultradamno:

I could almost imagine Joe Jackson singing this.
  Sun. 12/31/17 8:43am gekko hopman:

I will sure tell them, dear Nate. I'll tell you too about the release of the new record.
cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:47am ultradamno:

Happy Year's End, everyone. On to the inevitable constitutional crisis just hiding behind the door into the next one...
Avatar Sun. 12/31/17 8:57am DonJuanTijuana:

Hmm. Lately you've been closing with a different piece from the one I got to like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:58am Bootsie:

Just catching the tail end of the show. HIPPOPOTAMUS is amazing. Wish you were on more than one morning a week. Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 8:58am Scraps:

Cheers, Nate K!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/31/17 9:02am ultradamno:

Did they swipe that from Flight of the Conchords?
  Sun. 12/31/17 9:05am Nate K:

Hey Bootsie, thanks much!

@Ultra, maybe. I think I may have invented pulled that pun out of thin air without realizing it.
