This week’s links/videos/items of interest based on topics discussed during last night’s radio show. As always, I’ve attempted to post them in the order they were played on-air.

The above cake was enjoyed during the last episode of “The Rhythm Of The One.” We’ll miss you Matt!

Download the new ep “Isolette” by Audible.

Sherman Arts is offering a free compilation called “All Creatures.”

Both the AFC and NFC records by Diskothi-Q can be found here.

Another compilation worth grabbing gratis is most recent Silber Media Christmas collection.

Here is where you can find Jay Reatard’s stellar Nirvana cover.

I found this piece about Crucifucks frontman Doc Dart gripping.

A second preview .mp3 from the next Pierced Arrows album.

This week’s links/videos/items of interest based on topics discussed during last night’s radio show. As always, I’ve attempted to post them in the order they were played on-air.

Please send help to Haiti. The American Red Cross has a very simple arrangement where you can contribute a $10 donation for relief efforts by texting the word ‘HAITI’ to the number 90999. It takes less than a minute and the donation will automatically be added to your cell phone bill.

I’m still shocked. RIP Jay Reatard.

Gerard Cosloy remembers Reatard on the Matador Records web site.

Above is a short documentary about Reatard called “Waiting For Something.”

The Village Voice has collected several remembrances.

You can pick up the new My Dad Is Dead record here.

Roland S. Howard passed away on December 30th after a lengthy battle with liver cancer.

Above he is performing his song “Shivers,” a tune he wrote at the age of 16. Below you’ll find him experimenting on guitar sounds for “Jennifer’s Veil.”

The LA Weekly has a memorial with some great descriptions of Howard’s guitar playing.
