So rather than keeping the show oriented towards mainstream idea of punk, I'm going to focus in on its history as well as getting back to the forgotten roots of punk. I will also highlight music from some newer bands who are quite relevant to the overall culture.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2007
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's source for the World's Best Independent Music, announced today that it will air an exclusive weekly specialty show from writer, agent and now DJ Bryan Swirsky, entitled "Loud, Fast Rules!". This high-energy program is the latest installment in the station's successful run of specialty shows. "Loud, Fast Rules!" will run every Monday at noon and will highlight the best and brightest music ever to come out of the punk scene, by both contemporary and historical artists from all over the world. The playlist can be found only on http://www.breakthruradio.com.
A born and bred New Yorker, DJ Bryan was first exposed to The Ramones, the Damned, the Clash and the Sex Pistols in 1977 and he's been paying for it ever since. "I've seen underground punk culture start from nothing and grow into what exists today," says DJ Bryan, whose first show includes tracks from The Avengers, Mission of Burma, Down By Law, as well as music from one of his favorite new, punk bands, MOTO. "So rather than keeping the show oriented towards mainstream idea of punk, I'm going to focus in on its history as well as getting back to the forgotten roots of punk. I will also highlight music from some newer bands who are quite relevant to the overall culture."
With the addition of "Loud, Fast Rules!", BreakThru Radio further fulfills its goal of offering listeners complete on-demand, free programming that caters to whatever music niche in which their taste lies. Other BTR specialty shows include a folk show, a jazz show, a blues show, a heavy metal show, a dance music show and a hip-hop show.
"Loud, Fast Rules!" will premiere on BTR today and will be available in the station's archive and program guide, along with all of BTR's previous specialty programs.
