Hidden Gem: Karen O “I Shall Rise”

O Yeah!!!

“They’ll know my name
After the storms are passing through
They’ll know my name
When they’ve forgotten all about you
They’ll know my name
After the storms are passing through
They’ll know my name
When they’ve forgotten all about you”

They’ll know my name can only come from wait, they don’t love you like I love you…the lovely Karen O. (And it’s origin is as strange as Karen…Microsoft approached her to write the theme song for Square Enix’s Rise of the Tomb Raider which resulted in this track. Bizarre but it works!)

Girth Radio Presents…

It’s fascinating Fools choose to celebrate Bowie’s birth day…the day (January 8) his life began even though 2 days later (January 10) his life concludes. Fools a spirited collaboration between vocalist Nikki Ashworth and multi-instrumentalist Neil Gray are Bowie fans. I’ve no doubt his passing impacts them deeply…as it does all of us (present tense).

Hidden Gem: Kungs feat Ephemerals “I Feel So Bad”

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

It’s that time of year…the calendar has shifted like tectonics (or kinda like technics when the DJ is dropping fire!) and my mind starts longing for Summer like a forlorn lover. My Summer Tradition: I gather those that are close in my life around the shisha pipe and as is our custom…my job is to score the evening. Yo.

Reading is FUNdamental: James Bond by Warren Ellis

My latest comic book spy thriller following Brubaker’s Velvet and Waid’s Black Widow…is Dynamite’s new James Bond series by Warren Ellis. You can listen to Andrew and I “Bond-ing” over this series in Geek Hard’s Back Issue Bloodbath Episode 61.
