The Mal Thursday Show #16: Riot on Sunset Strip Revisited

THE MAL THURSDAY SHOW #16: Riot on Sunset Strip Revisited

In an episode dedicated to the memory of Sky Saxon, Mal Thursday trips back in time and space to Los Angeles, California, circa 1966, and the teenage riots that inspired the exploitation classic Riot on Sunset Strip. Then, dig some bitchin' Seeds covers from Thee Headcoats, Alex Chilton, the Zeros, the Fiends, and the Freak Mountain Ramblers, as well as a set of Mal's favorite Seeds tracks. Special guest appearances by Deborah Walley and Mimsy Farmer.

If you want the whole story on the Sunset Rebellion, be sure to check out Dominic Priore's great book, Riot On Sunset Strip – Rock 'n' Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood, which I neglected to mention during the show.

Presented in Living Monophonic Sound.
