TMP182 JAMES "THE HOUND" MARSHALL ON THE LOOSE

The radio personality, bar owner (Circle Bar, Lakeside Lounge NYC), and rock ’n’ roll musicologist moved to the punk rock ground zero of 1977 Lower East Side at age 18, meeting the Cramps, the Ramones, Richard Hell, and Lester Bangs on his very first day in town. His original WFMU radio show (’85-’97) established an outlet for unhinged rockers, blues wailers, greaseball classics, and instrumental madness from his massive collection of 45s and 78s. His new The Hound NYC radio show and Hound Howl podcast carry on that same love of music from the edge. The Hound brings his unvarnished opinions and acerbic wit as he joins the Troubled Men for a stroll through the rubble of memory lane. Topics include a Susan Cowsill Christmas concert, Thanksgiving, a new variant, mob influence, Paterson, N.J., Bud Abbott’s FBI file, life in Florida, Miriam Linna, the Contortions, Lydia Lunch, Robert Quine, Bradley Fields, the Home for Teenage Dirt, record collecting, the Dead Boys, Alex Chilton, Ned Sublette, x-rated parrot training, legal shooting galleries, Burroughs and Ginsberg, the New York Dolls in Florida, punk cross-pollination, the Sex Pistols, a nickname, Dave Clements, Snake & Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge, Peter Holsapple, rare records, giving up, Jim Dickinson, Lou Whitney, Danny Fields, the Beatles “Get Back,” Gene Clark, and much more.
