SUNN O))) vs Cause & Effect


Cause & Effect presents 6 hours of music by Sunn O))) and others residing in their sonic solar system. Starting June 3rd on WRIR you can tune in your transistor in Richmond, VA to 97.3 FM or stream the show live anywhere else on the planet via www.wrir.org. The radio program Cause & Effect takes place every Thursday from 7PM to 9PM East Coast time and is hosted by Lightning’s Girl and Alex. They trace one artist’s musical roots each week and for the first time in the show’s history they will present a two part series, continuing with 2 more hours of Sunn O)))’s musical family tree on June 11th at the same time. The final 2 hours of music will be made available as a podcast only for your downloading pleasure and will posted on the Cause & Effect Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Cause-Effect/154284635236?ref=ts as well as http://www.lightningsgirl.com/ .

The best thing about doing a weekly radio show featuring one artist or group is that occasionally they are willing to work with us to build the set list. This week Greg and Stephen of Sunn o))) have supplied us with all sorts of lists of bands to build our set around. Not only will we be playing their favorite tracks from their discography but we will also be playing a crap ton of their previous bands and collaborations not to mention all the bands they have been influenced by and the groups that their peer group is composed of. The only drawback so far is that there are so much material to pick from that I don't know how for the life of me it will all fit in just two hours. Our show Cause & Effect is on WRIR (www.wrir.org every Thursday from 7PM to 9PM East Coast time)

This picture was taken by me a few years ago when Sunn o))) played the church in Philadelphia. One of them had hung their robe up backstage and I snapped off a shot of it with my Polaroid. (Captiva to be more sepcific.) When I scanned in the image, I played with it a bit and this was the final result. It has in turn become one of my favorite band related photos I can taken over the years. If for some reason you want to use it or repost it, that is fine and dandy. Just give me, Lightning's Girl the credit please.
