Big Planet Noise Night!

Ahhh...Monday night....best night of the week. Big Planet Noise night. Show 125. 8pm,  7c. Perfect.
We have a loose plan. We're gonna start by shoving you right off the edge of the cliff with some classic sides of fuzzy '66 snarl. Then, it's Pitstop Pop: as we sometimes do, we'll touch down on a kinder, more gentle planet for a couple of sets, spinning a handful of more familiar, more melodic sides. (Honestly, I often need to do this just to get these tunes out of my head, so thanks in advance for the indulgence.)
Then, it's off to the land of wooden shoes & windmill cookies as we pound our way through a batch of absolutely killer Nederbeat sides. We haven't really done that before. And, we'll eventually land back home to the soundtrack of some heady folk-psych-weirdness. That's the plan, LouAnn - we hope you're there with us. 8pm, 7c TONIGHT on the Big Planet, on WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban!
