Hell of a Grip: Gary in Circle, Alaska

O how quickly a mean mean moon slips away!

My man Gary (pictured above on the Yukon River in Circle, Alaska) might describe the last month as “a hell of a grip.”

Here, finally, is some imperfect documentation of the inaugural Paradise of Bachelors Soundsystem Party, in the form of live mixed vinyl deejay sets presented as two m4a files, originally broadcast at Fuse in Chapel Hill, in the Old North State, on the balmy night of September 24, 2009.

Side A includes Baldhead Growler’s set (soundtrack/steady/soca explosion); side B comprises DJ Dr. Wow’s miniature, jeweled guest set (Dire Straits! boog!), a bit more Growler antics, and DJ Jason Perlmutter’s Carolina soul, gospel, softies, and rock megajams (here sadly truncated due to battery failure.) Enjoy!
