It's been pretty inspiring to listen to Marshall Crenshaw's ongoing tributes to the Everly Brothers on "The Bottomless Pit" in the wake of Phil Everly's passing earlier this month. The siblings were just as popular and influential in the UK as they were in the States, racking up 28 hits on the British charts. So, tonight on UKNY at 11, expect some vintage '60s harmonies alongside brand new releases from Peggy Sue (pictured), Mogwai, Drowners, Rainer, School of Language and other tracks from soon-to-be-released albums.
Tonight's Commonwealth Cut is pulled from an album that debuted at No. 1 on the Australian charts from Sydney's Boy & Bear, a band with a keen aptitude for the easygoing drift of '70s-style California rock.
That's UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EST, following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Got home too late? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
