Trash Day: 3/8/16


Thanks for listening to Bubblegum Trash on volunteer radio, WEVL 89.9FM in Memphis and world wide on the web at

Today, the theme is Marfa Myths 2016, where I play bands appearing in the line up of this years festival. I am going to Marfa this week and am excited to see these folks perform live.

The first set is made up of bands with members from the newly formed Heron Oblivion, who is playing the second day. The band is somewhat a west-coast-pysch super group of sorts with members Meg Baird (Espers), Noel Von Harmonson (Comets on Fire, Six Organs of Admittance, Sic Alps, The Lowdown), Ethan Miller (Comets on Fire, Howlin’ Rain, Feral Ohms), and Charlie Saufley (Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound).

Pill is another awesome band playing with the veteran punk-DIY’ers Dead Moon. Pill is also signed on Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage’s Dull Tools label, another band headlining Saturday. Emitt Rhodes will be playing live with a full band for the first time since the 1970s, Dungen will be live scoring a The Adventures of Prince Achmed and William Basinki will perform. I’m excited about seeing all of these bands and more. I hope you enjoy these sounds of Marfa Myths!

Enjoy! Stay Noisy.

  1. Just wanted to correct your comment on my friend Emitt Rhodes. Emitt & I did a show together in L.A. in February 1997 for the Poptopia Festival. So this is not Emitt’s first live appearance since the 1970’s, nor is it his first release since then, as we he appeared on my 2000 single “Some Sing, Some Dance,” which peaked at #43 on FMQB radio trade mag’s Hot A/C chart, and #5 on New Music Weekly. The single was credited as “RAY PAUL with EMITT RHODES.” just thought I’d clarify.


  2. Hey, thanks for that. I changed it to “live” it’s been the first time he would have performed live with a full band – at least that is what I was told. Also, I hope he is doing better. He missed this festival due to health issues so well wishes to him.
