happy birthday, Gertrude background: Walter Fandrich: Raume Spaze Espaces Spaces reading: Gertrude Stein, excerpt from The Making of Americans she would've been 126 today! Gem: I Am A Tree ringed and splintery original version, pre-GBVization Sweet Potato Pie: Hot Disco Night (Are You Ready?) disco stripped down to the beat the beat the beat and nothing else Corporal Blossom: Wombat Science curious small-time plunder-throb Console: 14 Zero Zero teaaoootally neüüü wave Ihan: Sans Titre A7 the music that computers really listen to to amuse themselves Vladislav Delay: Notke (excerpt) ...and the variation on it they think humans like Siamese Temple Ball: 1 the sounds organic beings make to please the computers in the sky Led Zeppelin: The Ocean and the ones in the same key they make to amuse themselves Harry Mosco: I Feel Funky you are what you feel, fella Scritti Politti: Smith 'n' Slappy actually a Mos Def record with Green on the choruses & rock guitar Alex Chilton: Take It Off not that he can do anything about it, it sounds like The Brilliant Corners: Black Water we're English and we're on drugs Princess Tinymeat: Angels In Pain (12" version) we're English and we're on serious drugs Justus Begly: The Golden Willow Tree very serious old guy reaching back with unarthritic fingers Hrvatski: Short With Guitar those fingers are still moving when they punch into the computer Fenn O'Berg: Fenn O'Berg Theme but you don't really need strings to have "strings" of any kind Kath Bloom/Loren Mazzacane Connors: When I Feel You Coming though there are welcome limits to even Turing devices Bob Hund: Dusseldorf Pavement ist rad! General Strike: My Other Body superior remake of a single called "My Body," no kidding Quintron: Rockin' Cha b'lieve I'll blow my stack Maryann Farra & Satin Soul: Stoned Out Of My Mind but still navigating the slalom-course of disco-funk Modest Mouse: Sleepwalkin' lyrical issues #1: making up emo words to a Santo & Johnny instrumental Tear Jerks: I Look Into Your Eyes, You Look Into My Eyes lyrical issues #2: that's all there is to it Suzi Quatro: I Wanna Be Your Man lyrical issues #3: unlike Shonen Knife, changes no words at all Mark Eitzel recorded in session (engineer: Jerry Fabris) It's Stupid, Don't You Agree?

Steven R. Smith: Death of A Disco Dancer entitled to do a foggy instrumental interpretation via his name Crawling With Tarts: Bee Opera (excerpt) even foggier! now with more instrumentality! San Lucas Band: Noches Eternas sour and blasting Amon Düül II: Race From Here To Your Ears they could rock for short distances when they felt like it The Who: Just You And Me, Darling maximum rhythm and blues--a swell JB cover from the new BBC disc
