You can’t overstate Thrill Kill Kult’s influence on My Life

tkk

They are celebrating 30 years together by playing two seminal albums on tour.  “Confessions of a Knife” and “I See Good Spirits and I see Bad Spirits.” I used to buy my import records from Groovy Man at Wax Trax records in Chicago.  He was working at the record store during the day and fronting a new band at night  He would ring me up and send me on my way with a new load of awesome vinyl.

The first time I saw My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult was in an upstairs bedroom at someone’s house.  Ah how they’ve grown.

About Spool Going Round

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. spoolgoinground@yahoo.com My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more: http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/spool-going-round/about-spool-going-round.html#ixzz1Bfx7V0ug
