We've got all sorts of fun going on this week, with Loud music blasting out over the airwaves to Nashville and the wifi waves to everyone streaming and all you great souls out there with a podomatic feed. We also take a second to remember some we lost, including Alan Vega right before the show was the air. So strap in and turn it up loud, get out there. If you're in Nashville, Saturday is gonna be a real good one with the Lucy Barks documentary airing at the Public Library, and then Elliston Street Fest going on for the big Exit/In 45th bday bash. Sure we'll be talking about both of those on the show next week, in between blasts of as much music as we can squeeze into 2 hours.
Took us a minute to recover from this show & get it up here and out there for everyone, but dive on in, it's worth it! A fun but blistering set of the good stuff, and we got to throw in some of our favorites from all over the place this week, some britpunk, some aussiepunk, and of course good ol usa punk rock as well. Will admit it did feel like a late night at times this week so we did what any late night DJ worth their salt would do... played some drinking songs for everyone still awake! So no matter how you're listening or what you're doing, crank that volume up, this is the Loud Love Show!
Originally broadcast Live on FM Radio in Nashville.
Who's gonna win this weekend, the Stackers or the Peelers?

It's a real special episode this week, as we were lucky enough to have the legendary R. Stevie Moore in studio with us to talk everything from Nashville to New Jersey, home recording and DIY, to free-form radio and the major role he played in it as an on-air DJ back in the very early days of New Jersey's famed WFMU 91.1. Not only talk though, as R. Stevie Moore and Mr. Roger Ferguson played live and acoustic a bunch of tracks, including material from the upcoming album being worked on right now. Hear these performances and love them? You can still be a part of the aforementioned album by heading over to the oft-mentioned http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rstvmo/r-stevie-moore
Trust us, you don't want to miss this episode. R. Stevie Moore has roughly umpteenbillion albums to his name, most home-recorded and produced and published to cassette by himself and his own label, and really kicked off the DIY ethos that was to gain so much traction later on when the punk movement hit in the early 70s, and today with the decline of major label music and the onset of tons of self-published album through ProTools and GarageBand, Audacity and the internet and the like. R. Stevie Moore was doing it without the tools consistently since the 60s, only now you'll see more albums on CD than Cassette tape. His vinyl albums are still much sought after and hard to come by, and his work on WFMU really set the tone for free-form as something to aspire to. But most importantly, it's an interesting and fun 2 hours of good times and talk, and great music, including these live in studio performances from a once, and current, Nashville local.
Thanks again to R. Stevie Moore, Roger Ferguson, and Eric Andre who made this happen and also filmed the studio sessions. Keep your eyes peeled as we'll have some video for you as well from the Live Loud Love Sessions as soon as we can. Until then, take the audio here, listen, download, subscribe, enjoy, and go check out R. Stevie Moore- both online, and live in concert Fri, Feb 4th, at Mercy Lounge with Deerhoof.
And tune back in next Monday Night (or afterwards right here) for more Loud Love, heading back to the normal punk rock and hardcore format, with possibly another special guest in the studio with us! So stay tuned, and turn it up.
