Nate! Soulcellerants!
  9:03pm DA The DJ:

Hi Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Nate K.:

Gotta lot of ground to cover tonight! And we may veer off the "Oh, My Soul" highway a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Nate K.:

Hey, Dave! It worked again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm ultradamno:

I've never minded backroads
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Nate K.:

Playing a bunch of my 2020 faves tonight from across the genres: punk and rock. Haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hiya Nate K, ultradamno, DA The DJ, Crew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm medson:

Hey Nate. Everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Chop Scott:

Cheers Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm ultradamno:

Hiya Pauly!
  9:06pm Morgan:

hooray for veering!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Nate K.:

Hey, everybody. Thanks for dropping by.
  9:06pm Morgan:

hi all! nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Nate K.:

Curious what records floated everybody's boats this year. Such a garbage year, but so much great music, thankfully.
Avatar 9:20pm drew73:

Hey Nate! Was hoping you'd do a Best of 2020 show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm medson:

Really Dug Osees stuff and how they’re putting out a live album all proceeds go to help small venues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm ultradamno:

Slum Of Legs
Warm Red - Decades Of Breakfast
Optic Sink
Messer Chups - Lost Tracks
Protomartyr - Ultimate Success Today
Sauna Youth - In Flux
^ - The Void
Boy Dirt Car - Solar Mountain
Maximum Ernst - Hallmark Of A...
Mekons - Exquisite
Cyanide Tooth - Who Are You An Agent For?

That was the top ten I posted, I like the Stooges Goose Lake disc, Amaria Hamadalher's What's App ep thing Otoboke Beaver's "Dirty Old Fart..." track...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm ultradamno:

Oh, and Messer Chups' Don't Say Cheese was this year too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm ultradamno:

...and Zombierella had the Nuclear Bitch single this year too.
Avatar 9:25pm drew73:

Sunwatchers, Bent Arcana, and the three GbV records. And the Howling Hex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Nate K.:

So much great stuff. Loved so many of these, too. Not sure I even knew Howling Hex had a record this year. Good to know!
  Swag For Life Member 9:42pm WHTIII:

Personality Cult, Nag, Lavender Flu, Sweeping Promises, The Archaeas, Straw Man Army, Special Interest, All Hits, David Nance, Oily Boys, The Cool Greenhouse
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm ultradamno:

For some reason, at the time, it was an uphill struggle to get people interested in Divine Horsemen. One the more fun live bands I ever saw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Nate K.:

I need to hear this Personality Cult record. It escaped me for some reason.
  Swag For Life Member 9:48pm WHTIII:

Re: Personality Cult it was a bit of grower but loved it after a few listens....
  9:50pm Vertual:

Thanks Nate for playing stuff I missed the first time around. Great sounds for a year that sucked otherwise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm ultradamno:

Also, I haven't listed them because I don't own them yet and as such, haven't digested them end to end yet, but I've heard them so much on the air it's pretty clear the Negativland and Cabaret Voltaire records are for real.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm medson:

Idles - Ultra Mono is another one I like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm ultradamno:

Was listening to this again this morning, such a statement record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Nate K.:

@Vertual, no problem. My pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm TomDash:

Hey Nate - just checking in now, killer year-end list so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm TomDash:

Ultrad - it’s my record of the year...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Nate K.:

The Itchy Self record? Damn.
Avatar 10:01pm drew73:

I'm going to check out that Itchy Self record. Fred Cole vibes, somehow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Nate K.:

@Drew, definitely. itchyself.bandcamp.com...
Avatar 10:05pm drew73:

Apple Music has informed me that Argos Farfish is my most-played song of the year. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm TomDash:

Nate K - I meant Slum of Legs...as record of the year. Itchy Self is up there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Nate K.:

Great record, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm ultradamno:

@Tom SOL def #1 💿
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm ultradamno:

Hadn't occurred to me before that if they went by The Slum Of Legs they'd be TSOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Nate K.:

True Sons of Thunder = TSOT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Nate K.:

Hey, any audio folks out there that know how to fix latency issue in head phones? Driving me nuts.
Avatar 10:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nate, it depends on what your rig is. If you're doing digital mic into computer, and audio from computer, you'll need to find the way to turn off headphone monitoring, plus you'll need to set/calibrate the mic latency in your audio mixing program so that your mic isn't out of sync with your music for the listeners.
Avatar 10:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(that is, turn off headphone monitoring of the mic)
Avatar 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Nate and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Nate K.:

@Kenzo, I'll hit you up offline. My mic is analog into a Scarlett 2i2 into the computer.
Avatar 10:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

OK, I'll resist asking questions here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm ultradamno:

Great pic of Yo La Tengo I saw earlier today, they look different than I recall twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Nate K.:

Saw that, too. Possibly my favorite Inzane Johnny yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Pauly from Clifton:

@ultradamno that Twitter post is fantastic! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Pauly from Clifton:

@Nate K, thanks for all the tunes and righting the world for me during these bleak times! Have a great 2021 everybody! Hang in there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Nate K.:

You got it, Pauly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Nate K.:

Thanks so much for listening everybody. Happy New year.
Avatar 10:58pm drew73:

Great show – thanks, Nate!
Hope 2020 doesn't refuse to concede to '21!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm TomDash:

Fun fact ultrad. - Penn played James from YLT at a Hanukkah show years ago (Gilbert Godfried did his best Ira)...great show Nate! Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm ultradamno:

Not too surprising he'd like them given his history as a VU/Half Japanese/Residents fan
