Gorilla Got Me

Kim Fowley gives you the thumbs up: cool. Kim Fowley slides his other hand up your thigh: priceless.

Not only does her MySpace page open with a crazed R&B track from one of our all-time Crypt Records Back from the Grave-style faves -- the gospel-singing prizefighter Dave "Bunker Hill" Walker's "Girl Can't Dance," with an uncredited Link Wray on guitar -- (sidebar: BUNKER HILL HAS A MYSPACE PAGE?!), but GORILLA GOT ME host Sara J's also got the Hollywood Brats album in her profile. Whoa. Thanks to the magic of Podcasting, we quickly downloaded her last two shows and found yet another radio soulmate at 'MBR. Likes: Lemmy, Sun rockabillies, Killedbydeathpunk, '80s Prototallica, wild sub-Nuggets bubblegum and trash-rock from '50s-'90s, Aussie stoogepunk, reptilian lofi glamsleaze . . . plus superfun big stuff from new bands like Nagg and LiveFastDie. Wow. (We'd bet our Question Mark and the Mysterians t-shirt that she took the title from the Ideals' top-five-dead-or-alive track "The Gorilla," too.) Has our favorite Zodiac Mindwarp fan heard of this girl? Probably so, since GGM's guest today is a member of Radar Eyes, whom our old friend Sleazegrinder likes too -- amazing how even after we've both been outta circulation for a year, we keep ending up on the same one-sheets. Anyhoo: Sarah J's "Gorilla Got Me," Wednesdays from 2-4 pm at 88.1 FM, also streaming online for the rest of you poor fuckers who don't live in Boston, plus old shows in streaming mp3 here. OTD approved.
