Radio - Sunday, July, 17th, 2016

Last week on SHEXD Marji played “Pessimist/Feminist” and mentioned that the Irish contigent of Inactivist was flying back to Galway after the Rakta show. On a fluke chance we were able to air the session we recorded on May 31st in a “Day late and a dollar short” kind of way. You can download an MP3 of the show here

INACTIVIST - Pessimist / Feminist (CIUT)
INACTIVIST - Smokestacks (CIUT)
INACTIVIST - Leave the Next Day (CIUT)

These next sets are inspired by current events. The first one happened last Sunday when Portugal won the Euro marking the first time they had ever won an international soccer tournament. This city lit up with the large Portuguese communities and Scott Free, who is one of the hosts of Prophecy, his wife is from Porto, the same place where Dokuga are from. I read in interview in a recent issue of MRR with Dokuga in which they talked about other great bands from Portugal, which is where this set was inspired.

Radio - Sunday, July 10th, 2016

It's my mother's birthday. I am not even joking about that. What better way to celebrate than with an episode of SHEXD? This is the eight kick at the can by this collective. Sarde called in sick. Christina of the Vanilla Poppers filled in with music from down under and Cleveland. More about Christina further down. To start off the show the Partisans and a song about police violence to reflect the recent police shootings in Dallas which also resulted in police being shot in Dallas. With such an individualized arms race in the States it was only a matter of time. Here is the playlist from the show. You can download an MP3 here. There are more photos up on our FB page under SHEXD photo album.
