We always enjoy the formation of a new supergroup of classic alternative artists; the newest is Night Crickets with David J. (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets), Victor DeLorenzo (Violent Femmes) and multi-instrumentalist Darwin Meiners. The trio were working together on a project, which evolved into the formation of a band with its David Lynch-inspired name.

In this episode of Revenge of the 80s Radio, David J. talks with Chris about Night Crickets, their first album, A Free Society, how they melded together and stories behind some of their tracks. After our conversation, we play their “Candlestick Park” song which centers around a personal story involving the Beatles’ last live concert (at the titular stadium).

We also play music from Toni Basil, Tom Bailey, The Hoodoo Gurus, The Saints and more classic alternative artists.
