Alright, everyone.  As it turns out, I was allowed to play 10 songs of my choice on Hunnypot Radio (August 18, 2008.)  I decided to stay within the confines of “California Punk,” which I thought was very appropriate, considering The Germs were there…and a little more manageable for me, actually.  I had to narrow it down some way.  As promised, the following list is what I played.  I will fill you in with lot’s of details about the tunes in the near future, since most of these songs are very rare and out-of-print.  The last 2 songs have never been released.

1.) THE MUTANTS – “New Dark Ages” (1978) – 415 Records (Reissued on White Noise)

2.) SHATTERED FAITH – “Another Day Passes” (1981) – Posh Boy Records

3.) FLYBOYS – “Crayon World” (1979) – Flyguy Records

4.) TAZERS – “Don’t Classify Me” (1982) – Tazer Records (Reissued on Rave Up Records)

5.) NUCLEAR BABY FOOD – “Sex Fix” (1982) – Mystic Records

6.) VECTORS – “Death To Disco” (1979) – (Reissued on Rave Up Records)

7.) AKA – “Tomorrow’s Theme” (1981) – American Standard

8.) THE LEWD – “Climate Of Fear” (1982) – ICI Records (reissued on Chuckie Boy Records)

9.) THE MECHANICS – “Scream City” (1978) – Unreleased

10.) THE CROWD – “A Disturbing Peace” (1981) – Unreleased   

Here’s some great news!!! 

This show is permanantly available for your auditory pleasure on Hunnypot Unlimited’s blog, called “The Hunnydrip.”  It’s an amazing listen from beginning to end.  Here’s the link:

I have been asked to DJ an 8-song set on the Hunnypot Internet Radio Show THIS MONDAY NIGHT – August 18, 2008 – at 7:00PM (PST.)  This will be an extra special night for me because The Germs will be there promoting their new biopic called “What We Do Is Secret.”  Oh boy…lucky me!!  I have the luxury of playing anything that I want, so I dug deep in my collection for some really rare and interesting stuff.  I will be spinning songs right at the beginning of the show and will be sure to post my playlist after the fact.  In the meantime, you’ll just have to be patient to hear some great stuff and learn a few things.   

Hunnypot Internet Radio, a part of Hunnypot Unlimited, broadcasts live at www.hunnypotunlimited.com every Monday night from 7:00PM – 10:00PM (PST) and then it streams constantly on the website until the following Monday’s show.   

Hunnypot Unlimited is an independent music publishing company located in Beverly Hills, CA.  It was founded by music industry veteran John Anderson and Music Supervisor extraordinaire PJ Bloom (CSI: Miami, Nip/Tuck, HBO movies, etc.)  These guys love music, have great taste and always champion new bands.  Yes, they are awesome and so is the rest of their team: Manny Montiel and Stacee Coleman

Yours truly,

Chris Cormier
