Episode 118: Film Noir
You've run away . . . You've hidden out . . . You've changed your name, sweetheart, but you can't seem to escape. Why has your color suddenly gone to black and white? Why is that neon sign outside blinking and half burned out? Why are there shadows of Venetian blinds across your chest? Why are you doing a bad imitation of Humphrey Bogart?
You must be in the underground garage tribute to film noir!
We got good guys, we got bad guys -- but we don't know who's who.
We got Strangeloves, Vipers, Cynics and Vamps . . . But then again there are Crybabies, Knickerbockers, Raiders, and Hollies. There will be a payback or two I'll tell ya that.
Outside it's reigning sound and the next sonic monochord you hear will be a forty-five giving somebody a real heat treatment.
The Buzzcocks are circling.
Who will beat the system and who will end up in Shangri-la?
Grab your popcorn and Raveonettes and find out this week in the Underground Garage.

~Little Steven~
