The third week in the non-rock 12″ played alphabetically series completes the letter ‘B’ and starts the letter ‘C’. The scope of the sounds is fairly wide, and hidden within are Sun Ra, Elvis and (the song) Pipeline re-edits (The Cosmologist, Pepe California, and Cratebug). Comic Kids and Chari Chari give tracks that have stuck in my head, but mostly I have enjoyed the trip though these 2 hour-long segments.

The second week in the alphabetical non-rock 12″ series continues the letter ‘B’, which will be completed next week. The show starts off with an Al Kent re-edit of Dave Baker, covers some early 00s electro courtesy of Bangkok Impact and later the the 3 Crème Eclipse 12″s. We go way back to 1979 with Black Devil, pleasantly revisit 2005 with Baxendale, then settle in with electronic artists/re-edits of the last decade.

Today begins a new series ’12” played alphabetically’ which will not cover labels I buy lots of releases from, instead covering the one-offs, played alphabetically by artist. If the 12″ is VA, the title is the alphabetical hook. I love this type of series because it is fun to wrestle a fluid show out of such a constraint, and I usually uncover new favorites while re-evaluating old finds. Today’s show brought me a lot of joy, which I hope you experience, especially as it goes live on Valentines Day 2023.

Today’s show has 6 pairings of Television or Tom Verlaine tracks with suitable companions, then a bunch of songs his stuff makes me think of. I did not play Felt, who may be the most Television-like band, but I will have them covered in weeks to come and I wanted to make lass obvious parallels. The tracks that have thrilled me and stuck in my head the most are ‘Penetration’ and it’s New Order pairing (both just incredible), and the TV21 / Psychedelic Furs pairing. I also love the dB’s track ‘I Lie’.
