Tonight 4/2--Siltbreeze Records on the College Radio Primer

TONIGHT (4/2) on the College Radio Primer, we spend a full FOUR HOURS tracing the history of Philadelphia's Siltbreeze Records and its impact on the outer fringes of indie rock through the 80s, 90s, 00s and today.  Started in 1989 by fanzine writer Tom Lax, Siltbreeze helped bridge a gap between the avant-garde and indie rock, releasing records from some of experimental rock's most influential artists: The Dead C, Charalambides, Harry Pussy, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Alan Licht and many, many more.  Hear them all TONIGHT, 8PM-12AM.  Listen live on 88.7 FM or stream it at http://www.wxdu.org
