The Seattle punk band's industrial-strength pummel in a live setting is conductive to being punched in the stomach. We conduct a short interview with frontman Nathan Rodriguez in advance of their Upstream Music Fest performance on June 1st.
The band's Upstream 2017 performance on the KEXP broadcast gets a vinyl release this Saturday for Record Store Day
This is the first time the original 1984 recording has been released. Not just that, but the estate has also released archival rehearsal footage of Prince & The Revolution.
Saturday, April 21st marked the two-year anniversary of Prince's passing. In his memory, Kevin Cole re-air'ed his four hour tribute, Nothing Compares 2 U: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Prince, on The Afternoon Show on KEXP.
Prince is well known to be one of the most prolific musicians of all time. Shows and after parties frequently stretched late into the night, and recording sessions could go for days on end.
Thanks to Kevin Cole’s connections to that world, and his obsessive collecting of Prince’s output, Nothing Compares 2 U: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Prince features many rarities, interviews, remixes, live recordings, and more surprises.
Two years ago on April 16th, KEXP opened the doors to our new home in Seattle Center. As we celebrate this momentous occasion in our station’s history, let’s revisit some of the videos from the Grand Opening celebration below, with more here. Thank you to everyone who helped build this new home!
