Retro SCOTTSO Re-Gifts a Mother-Load of Songs

Retro SCOTTSO sports the t-shirt he printed-up himself.

KLW's Retro SCOTTSO's got a mother-load of holiday cheer. Maybe too much "cheer." Honestly, we couldn't understand why the venerable Dead-Jay's holiday program isn't much of a Christmas slosh fest, but rather a shout-out to mommies dearest and otherwise. Confused, we consulted the KILLERWATT's resident psychologist, Dr. Aakash Balasubramanian, host of "Swinging with the Balasubramanians" (Sundays, 5-7AM,) who informed us that, "Mr. SCOTTSO apparently suffers from seasonal affective disorder, stemming from a separation anxiety disorder. In layman's terms, Mr. SCOTTSO substituted holiday blues with mother issues. An interesting case. From a clinical perspective. Especially considering he's not really alive." There ya go!

Now that we got that cleared up, we can enjoy Retro SCOTTSO's usual beautifully curated and presented music program!

Oh, and not to forget, another prescient edition of Things From Indie. Get clued-in to new bands before they break!

CYCLONE Heists 300 Million Japanese Platters

BiS takes-on Thee Michelle Gun Elephant's "Smokin' Billy"

While we all can't pull-off a 300 million yen heist and live happily ever after, some might take comfort in the realization that smoking IS an oral fixation and alt. idol group BiS (pronounced bee-su) has provided documentation.

NOEL Opens New York Rock Floodgates

NOEL at the Controls emanating from the region known as the Gowanus Canal Superfund site on Signal Hill, Brooklyn...New York City.

Heavy, viscous, metal-laden waters creep through the Gowanus Canal, slowly rounding the KILLERWATT's historic transmitter site on Signal Hill. We don't mind at all. Chief Engineer Sid Walker puts it this way, "The highly conductive, liquid-metallic waterway acts like a reflector, helping launch KLW's 50,000 watts of power far afield. It's just a matter of physics." 

NOEL at the Controls takes full advantage of New York City's lax stance on industrial pollution. He's radiating a coal powered, chromium plated, tungsten fired broadcast ... tonight, featuring songs from the carcinogenic Concrete Jungle we call home, N-Y-C. How'ya'doin'?!
