Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 178

What may be an endurance contest for some listeners is intriguing and exciting to others. This week we “hang on a loosely” to a synth/prog foundation with a few other things that fit closely within to create a trance like musical state of meditation, audible story lines and things that break the mold of most modern day music structure and formatting. Louder is better!

“KTFT Fan Friday” – Discoveries from January 2020

 | L | | H | | M | aka LightningHockeyMusic ~ 4/30/2021
I’m happy to announce that I’ve been invited by Bobby Rayfield from “https://www.mixcloud.com/MonumentsInRuin/” to be a guest host on “KTFT Fan Friday”.
Airing Friday, April 30th at 1 p.m. Eastern on “trendkillradio.com”. I’ll be sharing with you some new-to-me sounds in an hour long show titled, “Discoveries from January 2020”. You’ll also hear me provide some nuggets of information regarding the bands.
This is a journey of musical discovery through the first month of 2020, yes, over a year ago; but I just finished finding and assembling all this music a couple of weeks ago (started researching these albums a couple of months ago). Amazing how much music I miss while making other plans.
You can also check out a 96 minute version of the show that has bonus tracks and is without commentary from me; just glorious music:
Thanks for your support!

The image says it all. I’m pulling and spinning records that fit a day like this. This journey starts off with some Sabbath in Jazz form, heads into some Blues, picks up steam w/ some acoustic stuff from a Hank Sr. cover to some MTV Unplugged gems and I close the show out the way this day’s closing out… heavy. Tune in! It’s LIVE VINYL (you know… like the old days.)
