FINN'S REVOLUTION! December 30, 2008: Finn tips ya about the albums you shoulda bought, PLUS, a farewell to one of the great rockers, ALEX CRANK

above: Alex's shirt says "I don't have ALS. I'm drunk."

I'm proud to call Alex Cathcart (Crank) a friend of mine. He was a guitar player in the mold of Richards & Thunders, with a raw, punk, twangy rock n roll race-to-the-finish playing style. A truly musical songwriter & a singer who could put it across with charisma, energy and joy. His bands included The Cranks, The F3s, The Barflys, The Westones, stints with pigEARTH, the late Sean O'Donnell, Lancaster County Prison, LOURDS, Sport Murphy's band, on & on....
I learned of his passing during last week's Holiday show on December 23rd, when my compadre (and Alex bud) Sean McFadden called WUSB to request a tune for him, assuming I had read the e-mails I hadn't checked. It knocked me for a loop, and continues to do so. Alex's death was not exactly a surprise, as he had been suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) for a few years now. It does, however, remain a shock. We played together, recorded together, went on the road together. There are countless crazy Alex tales, he had a warm & generous heart, a wondrous fuck-all (yet kind) sense-of humor. I will miss him.
Shortly after he was diagnosed, we were mixing some stuff of his in my studio. I asked him how he was doing. He said, "No matter what happens, I'll always be better looking than you."
He was right, that fuck.
There are many sources for Alex stuff, but here's one from a few years back when he was playing with Marky Ramone & The Intruders, with whom he travelled the world. He's the rocker in the wife-beater in the foreground:

ODD HOURS with CHUNKY GOMEZ Summer playlists '08

Yo, ye. During the Summer months, when students are not around as much for their regular radio shows at the beautiful downtown Stony Brook campus of the the State University of New York radio station that is the glorious WUSB,(and I don't have to be in to work quite as early!,) I have the privelage of donning the cap of my alter ego, one CHUNKY GOMEZ. This time around, the show ran alternating Tuesday morns, 3 am to 6:30 am, and was called ODD HOURS. I dedicated each show to a specific artist, and featured whatever I felt were my favorites of the moment from their catalogs. As we have a new under-development website for the station, the guarantee that the playlists from these little golden nuggets of radio history will be able to be accessed from the site is shaky at best. I therefore offer you, dear listener, the virtual rosetta stone for the rubrik that has been ODD HOURS with CHUNKY GOMEZ, the Playlists:

FINN'S REVOLUTION! 4/1/08 playlist and banter

As we've been in the midst of Radiothon @ WUSB, I've been spending more time at the studio answering phones, taking your pledges, doling out premiums, etc. One of the cool things about this is that it affords me the opportunity to be around my compadres, including Emmanuel Goldstein as he produces some absolutely great radio. This April Fool's Day, Emmanuel's show OFF THE WALL was particularly spectacular, as the calls and pledges proved. Check it @, which you can link to from his show page on the WUSB website.

FINN'S REVOLUTION! 2/26 preview

As it says on the WUSB site, I'm gonna completely fake an encyclopedic knowledge of West African culture with the Dowling College Loft Theater's Andrew Karp. LIVE tunes featuring griot Abdoulaye "Djoss" Diabate, Fomoro Dioubate, Andy Algire and David Racanelli from the Loft's EPIC OF SUNJATA, (no, NOT Sanjaya! That's another epic...), which opens on the 29th @ Dowling in Oakdale. Looks like this'll be a filmed event, so I might have to wear pants.

Alex Crank Benefit/Revolution Preview

Some (intentially) light contaminated Holga images from Alex's benefit: TOP: The great Babs, rock and roll chick extraordinaire. BOTTOM: Alex's brother, Ian.
The benefit for Alex (see previous post) this past Saturday at Connolly's was apparently a resounding success, featuring The Peace Group, a great heartfelt set by Ian Cathcart (as always), and an outstanding set by the great Jay Spero and Trudy. Jay, in addition to other tunes, started off with some classic Brown Ploppy! (btw, I don't think I could ever play a BP song on the radio, as the heads of FCC staff might explode! But YOU should seek out some tunes of theirs) Some pics to be published at a later I've a few e-mails inquiring about Alex/Cranks info, I'll try and play a few tunes this Tuesday....
Working on a very special guest of the political nature for Tuesday's Revolution, schedules allowing...stayed tuned.......

Monday, January 7, 2008


This Saturday there's a benefit for our bud, the great punk/rock guitarist/singer/songwriter ALEX CATHCART (nee ALEX CRANK, among other incarnations). Alex sang & played guitar for bands including Marky Ramone & The Intruders, Lourds, The Westones, The Barflys, The F3s, pigEARTH, Sport Murphy's band, Lancaster County Prison, &, of course, The Cranks among others. He's done everything from playing EVERY bar in Queens to touring the world with Marky. A handsome motherfucker with a pure rocker's heart, Alex was struck with ALS a few years ago, an awful disease which has sapped his resources but will never dim his sly wit and punk soul. (Alex has turned to writing essays and poetry as a creative outlet. I'll get a link up for some of those shortly.) A bunch of folks are getting together to play at Connolly's Irish Pub at 280 Hempstead Ave in Malverne (516-887-5160) to raise some scratch for housing, medical expenses, etc. BUT sympathy for Alex ain't why you oughta be there: come down to watch Peace Group, members of The Westones, Lancaster County Prison, FUB, The Cranks, Finn & His Swinging Buddhas, and god knows who else blow the roof off the place. It'll be rockin', as Alex will have it no other way! I'll try and slip in a few Alex tunes on this week's radio show, otherwise, I hope to see you on Saturday night.

New Years Day '08

New Year's Day 2008. Port Jeff Lanes. For years, bowling on NYs was a tradition for me. Used to be a drunken/drugged affair. Now, armed with simply a hip flask and a 15 pounder, Alison & I bowled like motherfuckers (well, we broke 100 anyway) until the screaming children arrived.....a tradition renewed. Here's Alison calculating her spin...
So this is the new radio show blog for Finn's Revolution!, huh? Let's kick it off on this first day of '08 with my as-of-the-moment BEST OF 2007 list, shall we? You can hear these recordings live on the airwaves tonight.

Top 20 Albums

1. RADIOHEAD  In Rainbows
2. THURSTON MOORE  Trees Outside the Academy
3. ANDREW BIRD  Armchair Apocrypha
6. BOOK OF KNOTS  Traineater
7. ROBERT WYATT  Comicopera
8. JOE STRUMMER (et al)  The Future is Unwritten
9. SONIC YOUTH  Daydream Nation Deluxe Edition
10. EARTHLESS  Rhythms From A Cosmic Sky
11. THE STOOGES  The Weirdness
12. WAX TAILOR  Hope & Sorrow
13. ANIMAL COLLECTIVE  Strawberry Jam
16. M.I.A.  Kala
18. Aa  gAame
19. PAMELIA KURSTIN  Thinking Out Loud

Of course, the following could also easily slip in there, too, depending on me mood: the fine I'M NOT THERE Soundtrack, CARIBOU, BJORK's Volta, PISSED JEANS' Hope For Men, the great SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE album Shelter From The Ash, DEVENDRA BANHART's Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Mountain, LAVENDER DIAMOND, PANDA BEAR's Person Pitch, and most certainly ROBYN HITCHCOCK's I Wanna Go Backwards collection. As for a pure (ie, no new tunes/remixes/outakes) compilation/reissue album, gotta go old-school with the STAX 50th Anniversary collection, and as to live, JOHN CALE's Circus Live. Before I continue to second guess meself (I'll leave that to you), from myself, Alison & Miss Ira Bean, I bid you a fond Happy 2008......
