I LOVE SPRING! Well, sort of. It’s nice here in San Francisco during the day and cold at night but, its perfect weather that I personally like. Anyway, hope all of you are doing well. I have a pretty cool next few days coming up. First, I’ll being seeing probably the last show in San Francisco for MINISTRY. Uncle Al said he’s hanging up the cowboy hat and focus more on producing and sitting behind the board making other bands as good as his bands. I’ve been a fan of Ministry since the late 80’s and all of Uncle Al’s side-projects on Wax Trax Records and of course LARD. I don’t think we’ll see another band or another musician like Al for a very long time. He’s a mad man scientist in the studio, has created some of the best music/bands (REVCO, 1000 HOMO DJ’S, ACID HORSE, etc. . ) and has always had control of his projects. I guess I could say he’s the Stanley Kubrick of Industrial music. He’s helped so many bands/musicians succeed in the creative department and seeing them take off into sometimes huge. I will miss Uncle Al and his antics and I hope one day someone will step up and continue what Al started over 20 years ago. Thanks Uncle Al for all the great music and the kick ass live shows throughout the years. CHEERS!

Unfortunately, I will miss a CD release party at Thee Parkside for a San Francisco band that reminds a little bit of Ministry and that’s why I like seeing them. That band is THE FAMILY CURSE. Sorry TFC but, have fun without me though. I’ll catch you next time.

Lastly, Saturday night at 12 Galaxies in the mission District will be one of the best shows to kick off spring time in San Francisco and it’s another Parkers Presents. The line-up is EARTHLESS (Cosmic Rock), HOT FOG (ROCK), CHEETAH SPEED (members of Zen Guerilla, Mensclub, Hammerdown Turpentine & Sonic Love Affair) and STIGMA 13 (Garage Punk RocknRoll). I like this line-up is great because all four bands are different in music and styles. Its going to be a mixture of Punks, Rockers and Old Timers and I think everyone is going too get along and who knows, maybe new friends and bands will come about by the end of the night. Come on out to 12 Galaxies and make sure to have a good fake I.D. because it’s 21 & over.

Oh yeah, I have good news but, I’ll write about it next week but, I’ll give you a hint, I have a new radio gig in San Francisco. Thanks everybody for all the music, free ticket giveaways and everything else you do for the station and me. Have a great weekend, go see a show and keep spreading the word on KSCU 103.3FM and me, Naked Rob. CHEERS!
